One automotive photojournalist's musings on cars, cameras, lenses, guitars, politics, and anything I feel like writing about on any given day. Don't bother me, I'm working here!

It's been too long since I've uploaded photos to my blog so here are a few I like. this is Apollo Performance's very nice WRX STi, shot with my two trusty SB-600 flashes and my Tamron SP AF 70-300mm Di VC lens.
Scroll down for photos.
Specializing in automotive and motorsports photography, writing, camera equipment, and guitars. Yes, I said "guitars"! If you haven't tried one of the "chambered" 2008 and later Gibson Les Pauls, you owe it to yourself to plug one into a Peavey XXX Super 40 and have a go at it... Sweet as butter and as cutting as sharpened steel!
I just got an XXX Super 40 and, with JJ tubes, it's stellar! Tone junkies, unite!
Any questions? Shot with a Konica-Minolta 7D body and a Tamron 70-210 f2.8 LD lens.
Flat orange paint... Very different on a new WRX! One of my first shoots done with my Nikon D300 and Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 lens. A few months after I bought the D300, Nikon dropped the D700 on the market. Dang.

Just in case you need a 400-horsepower AWD excuse to pick up groceries! Shot with a Konica-Minolta 7D body and a Tamron 70-210mm f2.8 LD lens.

Too wide for their trailer!
Is a 'chute DOT-legal on a 1000-hp Supra? Shot with a Nikon D300 body and a Nikon 18-55mm AF-S kit lens.
Don't back up!
I'm still coming to grips with wide-angle lenses. Konica-Minolta 7D, Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 at 18mm.
This is an Audi?
Stasis Engineering's revised 2008 Audi S5... Interesting to drive, to say the least! Nikon D300, Nikon 18-55mm AF-S kit lens.
I have a weakness for these.
