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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
Here’s a firecracker for you.
John Martyn was one of the most talented and intense musicians ever. Never heard of him? That’s not unusual. Continue reading “”
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. Six times.
“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
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 Fiat Marine team and had a lot of fun in the process. Congratulations to everyone involved. Updates to follow as they become available.
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 “”
