THE MULE IN PANO!

The Porsche 916 is a rare beast. Only a dozen were built in the early ’70s. Based on a 914-6, a test mule for the 916 (pictured above) was recently featured in PCA’s Panorama Magazine using Peter Linsky’s article and my photos made in Florida earlier this year. Here’s a part of my sidebar that explains this car and the 916: Continue reading “”

BACK FROM DENVER

I’m fortunate to have been assigned to photograph three well-known Porsches for three different clients in Denver, Colorado last week.

A 911, a 356 and a 550 Spyder were my subjects. I was even able to film the 911 in a new and exciting way. Should make for a cool short video on Bring a Trailer.

THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD FEELS LIKE SOMETIMES

I made this photograph of endless waves in stormy weather in the late ’90s at Newport Beach, Rhode Island. It’s always struck a nerve with me.

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!

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!”

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY GONE ROGUE

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 “”

HAPPIER TIMES

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 with words and pictures for Panorama Magazine.

COME MONDAY

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.

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 “”
