2003 Aston Martin DB AR1 Zagato | No. 18 of 99

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.

Sold at RM Auctions 2013 Arizona Auction

Porsche 996 GT3

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!

Erik’s Type R Swapped 95 Integra

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.

Special Thanks to:

& Erik for letting us fiddle with our equipment around his car!

Dave’s Ford Lightning | Not For Sale

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.

Green Beret Challenge | North Carolina

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 located 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 Naneu 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!

Thank You!

Quick Snap | Bald Eagle at Lake Howell

Been in Florida for about 20 some days so far. Mostly shooting cars at a collection in the Palm Beach area. Spending a few days in Orlando just hanging out till we head to North Carolina to film a promo video for the Green Baret Challenge. Caught this Bald Eagle just hanging out as well yesterday during a storm. Had my camera right handy cause I had been trying to catch the storks hanging around as well and got a few quick snaps of him!
