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!
Flickr for the Hi-Res shots – S2000 and CC
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!

Well, this time last week I went over to a city that never sleeps, good ole Las Vegas for this year’s SEMA show. Well, I won’t go too much into it as this year I took well over 3,000 pictures. So today I was trying to figure out how to present my 4 day adventure without drowning people with so many pictures. So I came up with this, I’ll be presenting each week a different theme at SEMA and some with just one car since I took a bunch of just one car at the show. So we’ll do something like, Imports of SEMA, Trucks of SEMA, RWB’s at SEMA, the Toyo Tires Booth Cars of SEMA, and so forth. Still trying to fine tune what I’ll be posting but you get the gist of it. Anyways, enjoy a few pictures until hopefully Wednesday or Thursday, trying to get at least one article up before Simply Clean 7 meet this weekend…ugh! Such a busy month! Enjoy guys!
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.
