The November 2011 issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords not only featured my photography for the cover story, but also for a feature on the Classic Recreations Shelby GT500CR Venom. You can see the entire article below.
When Vaughn Gittin Jr. unveiled his RTR-X Mustang at SEMA last year I was hoping to be able to photograph it. Some may not like the car’s look, but technically it’s one of the most impressive classic Mustangs I’ve ever seen and it’s got some really cool details. Plus, Vaughn actually intends to drive the heck out of the thing.
Fortunately I got the chance to photograph the RTR-X earlier this year, and Modified Mustangs & Fords used the photos for the cover of their November 2011 issue.

I’ve been taking pictures of cars long enough that it takes a really good photo to get me excited, and usually I know I’m capturing that photo as I’m looking through the viewfinder. This photo of a Lexus LFA was one of those. As we were doing the driving shots down a long, deserted road, the sun was just setting behind the car and I knew it was going to be a great photo.
The rest of the photoshoot turned out pretty good as well, despite the fact that the LFA was black. Not that black cars don’t look good – in fact, it might just be the best looking color – but it’s a pain to bring out the detail in the car without making it look gray. I probably spent a good 24 hours editing the images to get everything right. It was definitely worth it, though, as I think it’s one of the best galleries I’ve ever put together for Autoblog.

2011 marks 20 years since John Hennessey started tuning cars, and to celebrate he’s building 20 limited edition 20th Anniversary HPE650 Camaros. I photographed the car for Hennessey a few months ago, and now they’ve been officially released to the media. You can see them on most of the major automotive news web sites:
I recently did a photoshoot with a car that I had been wanting to photograph for a long time. Can you name the car by simply looking at the keys?
Last month I picked up the Autoblog.com long-term 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The car is in Autoblog’s possession for the next six months or so, and it had just arrived from Detroit. I was not only tasked with photographing the car, but it would be my ride up to the Monterey car week. I love the diesel engine in the car – it provided the fuel economy of a Prius while delivering the driving experience of a normal car – and I only had to fill up once the entire week. I didn’t love the interior, however. The seats were made from a fake leather that felt terrible to the touch, and many of the materials in the car felt cheap. The diesel engine just about makes up for it, though.
