This past week Titan Motorsports open their doors for their annual open house. Every year, Titan Motorsports holds a dyno show, car show, and bikini girl show…what better way to spend a gorgeous florida Saturday? Lots of nice car’s this year inside the Titan compound, especially my boy’s S2000. Good thing I didn’t take Summer, she would have been jealous and looking at me mad that she isn’t looking that good. It was a bit weird driving my newly bagged Audi Avant for the first time to a car show and leaving my S2000 in the garage. Enjoy the pictures everyone.

What’s going on everyone? I do apologize for the lack of updates. It’s been a busy last few weeks. The biggest weekend started on the 29th for me of January, it was my first time being an actual official media photographer at Daytona Speedworld for the 2016 24hours of the Rolex. Covering the event for both Enjuku Racing and S3 Magazine, I was a bit nervous to say the least. I’ll be posting my full coverage soon.
But for a little down time, I was able to attend my first S2000 Mega Meet in over 3 years. The host none other than Kamispeed was there with open doors to welcome us S2000 owners like the previous years. I snapped a few pictures, but I was more talking to owners and friends more. Sadly it was cut really short by good old Florida rain. Enjoy the few shots and stay tuned for my Rolex 24 coverage!

Here’s another mini article from SEMA last year, I almost didn’t see S2000 as it was wedged between lifted Jeeps and Trucks. My eyes lit up when I saw it, I’ve never seen the new J’s Racing GT Widebody kit in person. Even crazier it was a carbon kit, big money just for the kit itself. This S2000 was just a real life REVHARD Magazine, so many JDM parts on it. ProjectU brakes, J’s Racing Type V CF Hood, Recaro Limited RS-G Bucket seat, CF Mugen Top, just so many cool parts that dress this widebody S2000. Enjoy the pictures everyone, until the next feature!

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!

I was disappointed to only see very few S2000’s at SEMA this year (past year now). The guys over at Evasive Motorsports never seem to disappoint with their car builds. More so that all of their builds are purpose built for racing. Ever since seeing the first post on the build thread over at s2ki I just drooled over the parts list. Fully built motor, HKS supercharger, full voltex aero, custom cage, it’s just a true s2000 enthusiast’s dream car. Upon my birthday, they finally released a full shot of their 3rd fully built S2000 and my jaw dropped. Hearing it on the dyno as well was such a treat. To my surprised I finally was able to see this blue smurf up close. It just screams clean, simple, and deadly on the track. I might have taken some ideas to do to my S2000 as well 😉

It’s been 3 years since I’ve been to my first Titan Motorsports open house and its crazy how much has changed, especially with the scene. It’s nice to see a power house like Titan Motorsports bring in a good mixture of cars. But the real reason wasn’t just for a meet, it was to raise money for their favorite charity, The Just in Queso foundation founded by Tijuana Flats. They help the near by community with food straight from Tijuana Flats. Last year they raised over $14k, which is amazing! But this year they want to beat it! Hopefully we’ll get word soon that they did. But I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking, enjoy 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.
