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 “”

THERE ARE NO RULES #3

This one’s pretty easy, right: “Never shoot a car in a parking lot.”

You actually can break this rule and get away with it – sometimes.

Until then, keep fake’n it ’till you make it, right? Not really.

To really make it, from my perspective, you need to think outside the box and create something new (without Photoshop). Don’t copy. Find your own voice.

THERE ARE NO RULES #2

Once again, photography rules are meant to broken, again and again.

It can be a part of your practice. That’s how you get to Carnegie Hall…

This rule is a bit more commonly encountered in photography: “Never shoot with trees sticking out of your subject.”

However, in automotive photography, there’s a difference between just having a car look like a planter and having your rule-breaking photo published as an opening spread in a 100K reader magazine!

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 MONTEREY CAR WEEK

What a phenomenal show. There were so many highlights to recount. Certainly, one was the thirteen Porsche 917s brought together for a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot on Saturday at Pebble Beach in Carmel, California. Wow.

Thanks to writer Jay Gillotti, who invited me to make the photos for the Porsche Club of America’s Panorama Magazine feature. It was great to reconnect (and connect) with many new and old clients and friends over the weekend.

THE ROAD TRAVELED

Congrats to Luke Veselic on his feature in the latest issue of Porsche Panorama Magazine. We traveled to the furthest back roads of the Santa Monica mountains north of Los Angeles to write about the 1982 911 SC Targa that Luke inherited from his father and a 2019 911 Carrera T that Luke recently purchased.

The light that evening was magical and made for some great photos and memories.

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.
