THANKS TO FPT, ROESER ENGINEERING, AND ALIOTTI BOATS
What an amazing day on the water yesterday. We captured some amazing stills and drone footage for the team and had a lot of fun in the process. Congratulations to everyone involved. Updates to follow as they become available.
BRING IT ON
With each new challenge I face, I’ll bring my best. You can too. Thanks to everyone for their support.
SUCCESS IS AN ICEBERG
Everything below the surface is just experience.

THANK YOU PORSCHE 356 REGISTRY MAGAZINE
Thanks to editor Peter Bodensteiner for my new cover photo and inside feature with Larry Markham’s 1959 356 Sunroof Coupe. The Porsche 356 Registry Magazine has become one my favorites to submit to lately. They are professional, responsive, and pay fairly and on time. Everything a photojournalist contributor could ask for!
SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Everyone knows I’m a Porsche fan. When I need something different, my choice tends towards Italian. A 1970s Maserati Merak or Bora is always a good choice.
BE CAREFUL KNOWING YOUR HEROES TOO WELL –
A.K.A. WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS
Mentors are important. Heroes can be as well.
When you first meet your hero, you will be less than objective. Every thing you hear from that person will be colored by your preconceptions. Until it’s not. Continue reading “”
MY 935 STORY
Thanks to PCA’s Panorama Magazine for publishing my Porsche 935 story on the cover and over 13 pages inside their April 2021 issue.
Thanks also to the 1977 Mecarrillos 935’s restoration team (Gunnar Racing), Kevin Jeannette and Sharon Jeannette, for offering me a pit pass to RR VI. More thanks to driver Rod Emory and the Meccarillos 935 owner for their trust in me to present the story accurately. Continue reading “”
BEST OF LUCK TO ROTHSPORT RACING IN BAJA
The NORRA Mexican 1000 for 2018 resulted in my producing a film called “Icarus” for Rothsport Racing and Cameron Healy. It won “Best Feature Video” from the Motor Press Guild.
Best of luck to Rothsport Racing, Jeff Gamroth and Barrett Smith in this year’s event starting next week!
The life of a true artist is unique and unlikely to be knowable in its entirety to many, if any at all. Continue reading “”
50 MM AND BEYOND
These are the focal lengths that many lifestyle and automotive art directors like to see used in your photo submissions. That’s because these normal to telephoto images tend to be flattering for portraits and cars, and they work well in print or on the web. Continue reading “”
THANK YOU ROAD & TRACK
A recent issue of R&T included a photo I made of Rolly Resos’s R Gruppe 1966 Porsche 911. Originally shot for Excellence Magazine a few years ago, the image location is where R Gruppe first met in 2000 – Cambria, CA.
Rolly and I were there at the beginning, and we’ve been to every R Gruppe Treffen ever since. A great guy and a good friend.
It’s always a good idea to expand your client base in today’s editorial world. The Porsche 356 has become one of my favorite cars to photograph. So, when I was given the opportunity to capture an all original 33K-mile 1958 coupe in the snow this winter, I jumped at the chance.
The result is my first feature in the Porsche 356 Registry Magazine. Check it out! Ten pages of words and pictures this month!
Ernst Haas, the pioneer of color photographic essays, would have been 100 years old yesterday.
He created the first magazine color photo-essay in LIFE in 1962. He became the first color photographer to have his own exhibit at MOMA shortly thereafter. He made this photo of a fall leaf in 1964.
A very good friend of mine, and a fellow student of Haas, Arthur Meyerson, posted this on Facebook today. I was there at the Ernst Haas Worksop in Japan with Arthur in 1984. I couldn’t have said it better.
