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.
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 today.
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.
There’s always more stuff to acquire. So, how much is enough?
Very few people ask this question of themselves.
Van Life folks do it every day. Check out the film Nomadland!
Long before Instagram, my wife and I lived that mobile dream for awhile. It was a good time camping on and off the road for eight years. My Steinbeck’s America book project resulted from that experience:
Followers of my blog know that at the end of each year I post a series of three personal images from a non-assignment single location.
In 2020, I took on even more commercial photography, along with some unique automotive editorial projects. That meant my personal work was even more important to provide some balance in my life.
So, I made a solo sojourn to the Palouse in Eastern Washington state in the spring of 2020 when the state’s Covid-19 restrictions opened up briefly. Here are a few of the images I made on that journey.
It’s a sincere honor to be awarded a cover feature in Porsche Club of America’s national magazine, Panorama.
In the December 2020 issue of Panorama Magazine, there’s a 16-page story of mine that goes behind the scenes for a photoshoot of the Emory Motorsport’s AWD “AllRad” 356 Outlaw.
In this article, I explain what goes into all my professional photo sessions. Photo tips are listed, some secrets are revealed, and a lot of fun ensues when Rod Emory coasts down a pre-planned route without a working engine!
Thanks to Rob Sass, Amy Skogstrom, Richard Baron, Vu Nguyen, Allen Lane, Doug Lloyd, and Emma Smith at the PCA!
As a full-time pro for nearly 30 years, the gear I take on assignment today depends on what is needed. Contrary to what it might look like, I prefer to work with the minimum amount of equipment. Continue reading “”
