HAPPY FATHER’S DAY
Greetings to all fathers! This is your day.
Photo made at Monterey, CA Laguna Seca a few years ago. Looking forward to the 2021 “car week” event happening in August!
FERRARI MAGAZINE TIFOSI
Congrats to PNW Ferrari club member William Howard for his feature in the latest Forza Magazine.
100,000 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. 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
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.
BACK TO THE FUTURE
My old ’70s German sports car from college days, the Opel Manta, is being produced as a retro EV example. Cool!
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.
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.
BRING IT ON
With each new challenge I face, I’ll bring my best. You can too. Thanks to everyone for your support.
SUCCESS IS AN ICEBERG
Everything below the surface is just experience.
-From the “Iceberg Theory” by Ernest Hemingway
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 “”
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.
