With many of the Cadillac Eldorado’s being red, this one really stood out with its beautiful green paint. I had the opportunity to take it into Chicago and I knew of a couple places that we could probably get away with just pulling up, getting out and shooting as quickly as possible before being chased out by security guards or rain starting to fall. So we took our chances and set out driving through the traffic out to a couple different locations you may recognize in the photos. The results from our risk turned out fantastic, and I don’t usually say that about my work! Also, with the car being in such close quarters with other cars and pedestrians, I actually spliced the first photo and the last one together Brenzier style
This was a pretty fun shoot. Some unfortunate events made it to where I had to shoot inside. This is not ideal for it takes about twice the amount of time. However, I absolutely love shooting more of an artsy shot. I am much happier doing shoots that have a good setting or require creative shots. Its not bad when you have a rare 2004 Aston Martin DB AR1 Zagato to shoot either. Only 99 of these in existence and this particular one was number 18.
Oh how I love race cars. I just did a couple of front 3/4 edits for the Flickr. It sold through RM Auctions at the 2013 Amelia Island Auction, which you can view here. This Porsche 996 GT3 is an older model but still would be great to see it out on the track and even greater if I was behind the wheel. One day. Automotive Racing photography is something I would like to do more of. If your club, team or whatever needs some shots for promotions, posters, flyers, etc, then contact me!
My friend Steve invited me out to West Michigan Honda Meet 12. So I gathered up my friend Tim who works at Kessler Crane and we took out some demo equipment to play with for the day. We used a pocket dolly with a elektraDRIVE Basic Controller and elektraDRIVE Motor to get the shots for this video in particular. The full video will have shots from a jib we had out there as well as time elapse controller on a 5 foot dolly.
This video is just of Erik’s 95 Integra that has been swapped with mostly everything from a Type R. I love these type of builds! No nonsense, just purpose built and gutted to go have fun on the track with. Watch the whole video to see a full lap around Gingerman in the car.

& Erik for letting us fiddle with our equipment around his car!
Dave had the task of keeping all 117 cars in John Staluppi’s Cars of Dreams collection in running condition. While down in North Palm Beach, FL shooting the collection to be placed in a catalog for sale, we also quickly shot Dave and his Ford Lightning. I finally got some time this week to touch them up. I wish I could shoot in a studio setting more often because of how sharp the photos come out!
And On December 1, 2012 you can come buy any of the cars in the collection! But not Dave’s Truck, that is not for sale! If you want to see all the cars I shot for the John Staluppi Collection check out the digital catalog here: http://www.rmauctions.com/digitalcatalogs/2012/ST12/ and you can also check out all the cars with up to 40 photos of each car here: http://www.rmauctions.com/Default.cfm?SaleCode=ST12.

The next stop of the Green Beret Challenge is coming up this weekend on Saturday, October 27th. So I decided to post some of the photos I got at the last one. I was mainly filming for the video that is locatedÂ after the jump at the bottom of this post! So I didn’t get all to many photos but the video is amazing and a lot of my shots made it so check it out!
Special thanks to NaneuÂ for supplying us with a few bags to tote are gear around in. There was definitely a lot of gear to tote around. Check out Jared’s setup below! Between the crew of 5 of us we ended up catching about 125 GB of footage in just the 4 hours that we were able to shoot.
I can’t wait to meet up with the guys this weekend and shoot another great event! See you all there!
Be sure to Like Green Beret Challenge on Facebook. As well as Somethin’ Lite Pictures and my page Velocity Concepts, LLC just two of the small parts of the crew that went out to North Carolina to film this event!
Dont miss the video! Click the link below to see the full post! Thanks!
Jordan’s Senior session, shot Fall 2012. Had a good time out shooting in the wilderness for most of this shoot. Then we headed into the streets to shoot with the 1935 Ford Sedan which was actually provided by me. We have 3 different cars to shoot with now. If you would like to have your shoot with a car and located around the Wawasee Lake area or surrounding area contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
