BACK FROM PORSCHE PARADE
It’s good to be back home after a busy week in French Lick, Indiana. Lots of early mornings photographing cars, concours and autocross for the Porsche Club of America Panorama Magazine. Look for full coverage when my words and pictures appear in the October issue!

FORZA MAGAZINE TIFOSI
Congrats to PNW Ferrari club member William Howard for his feature in the latest Forza Magazine.
1000,000 miles in a Ferrari 458 that’s only eight years old means you drive it every day! Check out my photos and text of him and his car in Forza on the newsstand today.
If I wasn’t previously booked, I’d attend the annual Ferrari Club USA meet in Oregon next month here.
FPT “KILLER SALMON” BOAT TEASER
Yes, I launched my DJI Phantom 4 V.2 drone from a moving camera boat and landed it on the same boat at a different location.
“Let’s get real. Serious fishermen like Tom Aliotti, owner of Aliotti Enterprises, know it’s not just about catching fish.
It’s about killer power and performance combining for that epic showdown on the water.
So get ready, because Tom’s ‘Killer’ salmon slayer powered by MSHS and FPT Industrial is coming to Bristol Bay, Alaska!”
-Justin Roeser of Roeser Engineering and Motor Services Hugo Stamp
After visiting Death Valley National Park a couple of years ago for the first time in decades, I found my familiar space of solitude shattered forever.
At one time, it was an environment where I could reliably go and find solace. Maybe a couple of photographers would climb the sand dunes at dawn to be alone in nature, listening to the wind as the sun rose.
There were no parking lots next to the sand dunes back then. Now there’s a big one full of SUVs and Sprinter vans before the sun rises. Continue reading “”
IT’S BEEN QUITE A YEAR
Yes, this is what I look like today. I’m still intense and confident.
The harder the assignment is, the more intense and confident I become. That’s based on my decades of preparation with previous gigs involving serious research, risk, and preparation. Otherwise, I’d be scared to death (like most photographers should be today when faced with something they’ve never done before). Continue reading “”
That’s how the front line describes the current Covid situation here in Washington state, where many still wear masks indoors for safety.
That’s good news considering how the USA was impacted by this horrible virus. Still, after traveling to Florida, where masks are rarely worn, I’m glad to be back home, although I really wish I were in Cabo on the beach.
AMELIA ISLAND CONCOURS AND PCA WERKS REUNION
Today, I’m on assignment in the hottest spot to be in the classic car world. Amelia Island, Florida.
Thanks to the Porsche Club of America for sending me here to cover the event and complete some stories for Panorama Magazine.
Thank you to the one who introduced me to the album Living and Dying in 3/4 Time.
It saw me through 15 years of living the life of a tropical travel stock photographer – a kind of unknown Jimmy Buffett in transit. I did very well, being paid obscene amounts of money as a citizen of the world from the mid ’80’s until 2001. I only had to have one carcinoma removed.
The usages of my photos were mostly commercial, so I was never credited. That worked out just fine for me, because I never wanted to be famous. I ended up traveling to every continent and over 40 countries with over 20,000 publications worldwide. Continue reading “”
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 “”
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.
