Last week the Pagani Huayra (pronounced “wire-rah”) made its North American debut at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design. While I have to admit I’m still getting used to the exterior design, I can definitely appreciate the design work that went into all of the little details. Even functional components like the suspension are works of art. I’d love to have a day to photograph the car in a proper setting.

Multi-car photoshoots aren’t the easiest, especially when trying to arrange cars with a short window of good lighting, but the results are often worth it. Yesterday evening I photographed an Audi A7 and a Mercedes-benz CLS, and the German pair of four-door coupes made for an attractive couple. The rest of the photos will be published in a comparison test on Autoblog.com in the next couple weeks.
I made by podcasting debut earlier this week, discussing photography tips with a few other members of the Autoblog team. There ended up not being too much discussion about photography, but I’d recommend listening to it anyway if you enjoy cars.

Just a little sneak preview from this evening’s photoshoot. It’s not quite the most expensive car I’ve photographed, but very close. It’s definitely the most powerful (for a street car, at least).
Hennessey has made quick use of the Corvette Z06 photos I took for them, sending out this brochure to their customer base.
I’ll be making my debut on the Autoblog Podcast tonight to discuss photographing cars and to give out some tips and tricks. You can listen live over at USTREAM at 10:00 pm EST, or download it from Autoblog tomorrow. You can submit any questions or discussion topics here.
Earlier this week I went down to the El Toro Marine base in Irvine, CA to take photos of two of the Ford drivers practice for X Games. Watching Marcus Grönholm in action was amazing, and getting to ride shotgun with him during a practice run was even better. You can see all of the photos over at Autoblog.
Earlier this week I headed down to Hennessey Performance’s SoCal shop in Irvine, CA. They had just installed a new Edelbrock supercharger system in a Corvette Z06 (the first one, I’m told), and needed photos of both the car and the engine bay. Follow the jump to see a few pictures from the photoshoot.

Just got word from the great folks at Kahn Media that one of my photos was featured on the cover of Robb Report’s Collection in the August 2011 issue. This one came as a surprise, since I took the photo in September of last year. The photoshoot was originally done for Classic Recreations, the builder of the car.
Publication: Collection (Robb Report)
