2015 was such an up and down year for me. I can get into the whole personal stuff, but it gets no one anywhere. What’s done is done, now for my photography work for 2015 it has been a huge jump in exposure. Again, this is still a hobby of mine as I would love for it to be my full-time job, but I’m still not there yet personally. This past year I’ve made so many new friends, met many followers. It’s surreal at times when I get stopped at shows to say ‘hey man i follow you, love your work/car’ it’s an awesome feeling I must admit. Lately my photography has been more as therapy, either hanging out with friends, by myself, it’s something about dusting off my camera and I look through that viewfinder and my worries just leaves my mind.
I needed that today so my buddy Mike woke me up around 11am and told me to meet him at the Starbucks near downtown Eau Gallie. It’s been over 2 weeks since I’ve moved my S2000 as well, so that was another treat for today. After some much-needed caffeine we drove around and spotted some cool locations for some pictures. We’re not much known for cool graffiti walls so there’s only so much we can shoot around here. It was the right amount to get me out of this funk and I appreciate Mike for getting me out. Anyways, here are the couple snaps. Lots going on these next few months though so I can’t wait to show you all the upcoming Motorsports events and meets and shows!

Last weekend I spent the weekend with my girlfriend getting to know Miami and it’s popular spots. The first day there we got to hang out with a fellow photographer and media director at Lamborghini of Miami Emil Garcia. He gave us a quick tour of the dealership and it was insane, amazing gorgeous cars everywhere you turn.
After hanging out we went to our hotel to check in and to relax while we wait to head to dinner which we decided on a very popular burger place called Rok Brgr. OMG it was so good, best burger I’ve had in a very long time. It’s up there with In n Out, I know that is a very high standard to be at but it’s that damn good. Great food, good company, lots of laughs, it was an awesome night.
The following day we checked out of our hotel and headed out to explore Miami and we headed to the Art District of Miami called Wynwood. I’ve been here for 3 years straight when the graffiti event the Art Basel. Walking around, snapping pictures, reminiscing back in the “old days” where certain walls were still up and what art was where. We had an awesome time but sadly not enough time to see the whole area as we had other stuff to do. We fell in love with the city and we can’t wait to go back! Enjoy the pictures and a expect a lot more through out the year from this lovely city ❤

Last weekend I was over for the annual Art Basel show over in Miami, Fl. I don’t attend the actual show itself… that isn’t my thing. What I do go down there for is the amazing display of graffiti and street art displayed on abandon builds, warehouses, and store walls. Sadly I’m still editing the graffiti pictures, but I did finish a few of some cars I shot out there. Enjoy guys!

First weekend of December an event called Primary Flight is held in the Wynwood Art District. Here world famous and underground artist come out and show their art work. Some at galleries that they rent for the weekend or a lot of them show off their art work by actually doing graffiti work on the walls in the Art District area. For 2011 it would be my 2nd year coming out as my brother from another mother invited me along back in 2010. I was hooked and I hope to make this an every year trip down to Miami. On the last day I decided to take the last pictures around the area with my S2000. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to do this with more cars, can’t wait!
