Decided to combine all of my RWB pictures into one article. Most of them were corral at the iForged Wheels booth, which introduced the latest RWB vehicle to the west coast family. The 1973 RSR Backdated Porsche by the CYC Trading Group was jaw dropping gorgeous. I’m still trying to get my Porsche termanology down so please excuse me butchering the codes. You then had 2 993’s and 2 964’s in the lineup. Everything from wild track setup to a low-wide cruiser. I was really partial to the Orange RWB by the Creaminz crew. After about 20 mins of shooting almost every angle of each car, I took about 10 mins to myself to just admire these cars. You see all these build videos of different porsches being cut, and riveted, paint, massaged by Nakai-San and then you finally see them in person, it’s like a religious experience. You feel like you’ve known the car since day one, through it’s whole build process. Enjoy the pictures, I’m not sure what I’ll be posting yet, but tune in again next monday!

This year at Formula D, we were introduce a brand new venue…Orlando Speed World! at the oval track…featuring fence! I think you know where I’m going with this, it was a great location if the owner and FD Staff had more time to organize it. I mean it’s a new venue so no one knew how the property was going house thousands of people, media, drivers, teams, all in one small location. Hopefully a lesson learned and they further improve the location. I still had a blast, scratched a bucket list dream to hear Mad Mike’s MADBUL rotary goodness. This was also my first motorsports event where I had the chance to use my newly purchased Canon 1D Mark 3 camera. Ugh the burst fire is so insane on it still for being over 8 years old. Enjoy the pictures everyone.

Better late than never to post coverages from a few months ago. Here’s a few photos back from July’s LB Summer Bash meet up. I haven’t see Liberty Walk vehicles since SEMA in 2013. Kato-San was actually there from the start of the meet along with his whole crew. Towards the middle of the meet, Kato made a big crash with an amazing parade of GTR’s, BMW, Porsche, and an amazing 240Z. Enjoy the snaps everyone!
This year will be my 10 year anniversary with my baby girl, I feel like I need to get her something or do something for her… maybe take an amazing photoshoot with an awesome backdrop and print it out. Hmm, we’ll see how the rest of the year looks like. I did want to start in the power department but my stupid head can’t keep its mind on what to do. But how she sits now I couldn’t be anymore happier. Its exactly what I wanted her to look, aggressive as hell and breaking necks.
Couple of life changing moments has happen this year so I’ve been trying to deal with that as best as I can. The only thing I can turn to that can make me feel better or forget my stuff is my photography and Summer. I just get into a groove, my own world, it’s just me and my work. At my worse point one day I decided to stop by a location along side the beach to take my mind off of things. These are a little dark than my usual edits but I think it fit my mood at the time. Anyways, enjoy everyone.
My coverage of Formula D Round 3 in Miami, FL is finally posted up over at Canibeat.
A good read if you want to head on over there, but if you want the eye candy head on over to my flickr. Enjoy everyone and remember to show some love.
