I’ve photographed a lot of Ford Mustangs, but this very special 1966 Fastback built by Steve Strope over at Pure Vision Design might just be my favorite. Everything from the Martini Racing livery to the Ford Indycar V8 engine under the hood is spectacular.
The little details are amazing too. The underside of the car is as clean as the outside, and plenty of thought has gone into every inch of the car.
Perhaps the best part about the car, though, is the fictitious back story created by Strope. In his imagination, the car is serving as a marketing tool for Ford in Europe, promoting the T5 (what the Mustang was called in Europe) while competing in road rallies. The car fits the theme, with a navigator’s flashlight and footrest.
The car is now on the cover of the latest issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords, which was released today. You can check out the full article below.
I photographed Vaughn Gittin Jr’s 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X in action at Willow Springs Raceway more than two years ago, and I haven’t thought too much about the pictures since. However, one of them came up again today on Andy Blackmore’s Facebook page. Apparently someone used one of the photos I took as the design for a tattoo on his arm. Crazy.
I photographed this 2013 Ford Mustang built by DSO Eyewhere back in January, and the photos have finally been published in the October 2013 issue of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords. You can check out the entire article below.
In addition to the cover feature, my photos of this 2012 Ford Mustang were also featured in the September 2013 issue of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords. The car is owned by Kris Horton, and is one of the cleanest Stangs I’ve ever seen. You can see the full article below.
I’ve only had a few cars that I absolutely knew were going to be on the cover, and this is one of them. Built by Creations n’ Chrome, this is possibly the most impressive Fox Body Mustang ever built with a full race chassis, carbon fiber body panels and an 855 rwhp supercharged 5.0L V8. The engine is set so far back it could be considered mid-engine, and it weighs less than 2,500 pounds. Oh, did I mention it’s painted in blue chrome?
Being such an incredible car, the “Top Notch” Mustang deserved a proper photoshoot, which was done about three hours outside of Los Angeles in the desert. It was a pain to get to the location, but I think the resulting photos were worth it.

I recently photographed the very first 1966 Shelby GT350CR built by Classic Recreations, and the photos have been released and are now starting to appear on the web:
I photographed this super clean Cobra Jet clone owned by Brent Calvert quite a while ago, and it’s finally been published in the August 2013 issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords. You can view the full article below.
Every year 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords publishes a special performance issue with a specific theme. This year was “Budget Builds” and one of the Mustangs is this 2011 Ford Mustang GT I photographed for the issue. Truthfully, it doesn’t fit the theme that well since the owner has dumped a ton of money into the car, but it has a subtle look that somewhat worked. The fairly stock exterior hides a beast of an engine – the 5.0L V8 produces 522 rwhp all naturally aspirated, which might be the most of any 2011+ Mustang out there.
While the car didn’t make it on the cover, I thought the photos turned out great in the magazine. You can see the full article below.
The V6-powered Ford Mustang has always been thought of as a secretary’s car or a rental car, but this 2013 model with the Performance Package was actually a blast to drive. It photographed really well too. You can see the full gallery over at Autoblog.com.
The August issue of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords was released today, and I was happy to see my photo of TruFiber’s supercharged 2013 Mustang GT on the cover. It’s the third issue this year that I’ve been featured on the cover of the magazine.
I’m sure part of the reason it’s on the cover is the “Gotta Have It Green” paint color, but I’d like to think my photography played a part in that as well. The lighting was simply perfect for the photoshoot.
