Can’t wait. One of my favorite marques and film directors!

CAR VIDEOS + WRITING + STILLS
Since 1992, I’ve pursued an organic approach to seeing the world, working full-time as a visual artist.
I took my style of still photography and writing, then added motion and audio to produce emotional cinematic narratives. To this day, I continue to create consistent on-target branding for discerning collectors, on-line car sales, race teams, car manufacturers, and automotive suppliers worldwide.
Check out my new reel above!
BABY, CAN I HOLD YOU
Still one of the most moving performances ever.
Pavarotti and Tracy Chapman live in 2001.
TOP GUN MAVERICK
Many of us have seen this new film, and any of us who are Porsche fans, love the ending.
It features a shot of Jennifer Connelly next to a silver 1973 911S. A sunroof coupe no less. Gotta love it.

IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A B.S. ARTIST
Today, everyone seems to be looking for an easy answer. Nobody wants to do the work. So they rely on the loudest person in the room. Problem is, that person is usually so self absorbed that they no longer know when they are lying. What they do know is that it’s easier to plead ignorance or ask for forgiveness when found out.
Back in 1989, there were a trio of women who realized what was what, and they were very talented.
The Roches are three sisters whose voices blend together amazingly well. They are Maggie (baritone), Terre (soprano), and Suzzy Roche (alto). Their albums are full of sly tunes and received some airplay in the ’80s. Here’s a song of theirs I’ve always liked.
If you are in England, be sure and check out Megaphonics 22 on Sunday, 29 May, when Boxengasseâ€™s annual air-cooled Porsche event returns for itâ€™s 4th installment.
Here are some quotes from its founder, Frank Cassidy, a man after my own heart – Classic Porsche, Leica and 60’s music. Continue reading “”
WE SKIPPED THE LIGHT FANDANGO
Probably my favorite single ever, released in 1967 and made arguably even better by Annie Lennox on a wonderful sounding LP in ’95. The original recording was used in many films, including the 1989 New York Stories with Nick Nolte. Amazing that it was written 55 years ago by Procol Harum. Sadly, Gary Brooker, who led the band throughout their history, and who co-wrote and sang this classic, passed away on February 19, 2022. He was 76.
A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum.
One night, Michael Murphy, a singer from Texas, dreamt a song complete with lyrics. He composed it with Larry Candler in a few hours that morning. Murphy believes the song came to him from a story his grandfather told him when he was a little boy. Released in February 1975, “Wildfire” became Murphey’s highest-charting pop hit in the United States. It hit #3 on Billboard that week and is considered a classic today.
Happy Valentine’s Day
LOOK UP, THE SKY IS OPEN.
Drone photography and videography can be magical.
However, it is not for the faint of heart. The deeper you go into this discipline-laden aerial specialty, the more you risk being confronted with the limits of what is possible. Those limits are not very forgiving.
Still, for me, the effort is worth the risk for the imagery that can only be acquired aloft. It’s an inspiring and addictive vocation. Fly safely.

Lots of film work lately! More video to come…
The Beatles: Get Back is a new documentary series directed and produced by Peter Jackson. It covers the making of the Beatles’ 1970 album Let It Be, which had the working title of Get Back.
Check it out. All you have to do is look at the 1969 photo above to know The Beatles were way ahead of their time. I mean, who else was wearing Chucks besides George?
VIRTUAL TRACK RIDE – CIRCUIT OF THE NORTHWEST
This is the motorsports complex we’ve been waiting for in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s what the Hermann Tilke designed track will look like – now available to pre-visualize on You Tube.
It’s the perfect location near Bremerton, Washington and a perfect road course with complex corners and elevation changes, just a short commute from the Seattle & Tacoma area. There will be secure car storage facilities available along with a service shop for members. Motocross and karting areas are also being planned. More to follow on this blog.
