Photographing Trucks For The First Time

I’ve been shooting motorized vehicles for nearly 10 years now but I’ve never had the chance yet to shoot semi-trucks… until now! The project was a complex one with photo and video demands all being squished into one day. As our day began I quickly found out how photogenic these big rigs are, no really, I mean it! The swooping cabs and the huge length of the trucks make for some great leading lines, and in photographic terms, leading lines make for striking images. However, I quickly realized how difficult it is to arrange these truck/trailers. No surprise there. Working with our amazing drivers on the day of the shoot, we managed to maneuver each of the trucks into the positions we need with only minimal communication. Here are the results:

2008 Porsche Cayman GTR WIDEBODY

During my visit to the 2017 Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance there was also the Porsche Werks Reunion just one fairway away! Being a Porsche Cayman S owner myself now, it was hard not to keep my eyes peeled for special Cayman builds. One build in particular not only caught my eye, but also my soul! This build comes to us thanks to Road Scholars in Durham, North Carolina. Owner: Danny Omasta. Specs are as follows: Body Custom mixed BASF paint in “Burgundy” color inspired by our 1949 Porsche 356 Gmund restoration 911 GT3RS front clip conversion Hand fabricated all metal “Wide body” treatment to doors and quarter panels (9-inch total wide body flair) Custom made 1 of 1 rear bumper to fit widened quarter panels Shaved Roof Rails 2016 GT4 wing in carbon fiber GT3RS cup car front lip hand made in carbon fiber Carbon Fiber side mirrors and quarter panel vents Shaved rear hatch CNC machined custom Cayman GTR sill plates and floor panels Color matched front Headlamps with LED update Smoked taillights and marker lenses Wheels and suspension Custom built 19″ Rotiform HUR wheels wrapped in Nitto Invo Tires Complete Porsche cup-car suspension package Bilstein Coil over struts GT3RS 6 piston brake calipers, and ceramic 2 piece rotors […]

Cold Weather Won’t Stop Us

I took the day and headed up to Brainerd International Raceway where a private track day was being hosted by Morries Luxury Auto. Upon arrival, Morrie’s had several new Bentaygas lined up and the all new Aston Martin DB11 for customers and invited guests to stare at and drive. The Bentley’s job for the day was to impress and impress it did. The task was to take guests back onto a dirt track and gravel pit to display it’s off-road prowess. After doing a few trial runs and getting it semi-stuck in the mud, we had a course which worked perfectly! After that I headed to the track action to catch some cars attacking the track despite the 45 degree high for the day.

Lake Superior – Fall Drive

Being asked to photograph multi-day driving events in the peak of the Fall colors up the coast of Lake Superior with a group of super cars never gets boring. This was the Auto Vault’s second annual fall drive with several more planned for next year alone! I never get bored of being a Minnesota car photographer with jobs like this, especially when we end up in Grand Marais with a Lamborghini Huracan, Audi R8 V10, McLaren 650S, Audi RS7 sedan, Porsche Cayman GT4, and Bentley Continental GT V8 S. We got into town with only an hour to go before sunset and instantly attracted a crowd. Being a car photographer, naturally I started scoping out a great angle to photograph the car at with the Minnesota sunset in the background. I lined up the Lamborghini and added in the Audi R8 shortly after for some great shots. Enjoy:

HRE Performance Wheels – Porsche 918 Spyder

Over the summer of 2016 I was hired by HRE Wheels to photographer a special car here in Minnesota. The car is a Porsche 918 Spyder. While only 918 were ever made, three of them are here in MN and all owned by a single owner. This particular 918 I have photographed before while in its original blue state. The car has since gained many thousands of miles on the clock, HRE Wheels, and a matte black Martini vinyl wrap.

Minnesota Cars & Coffee – May 7th 2016

 

Aston Martin DB11 – Private Reveal

I was invited to the private, invite only, DB11 sneak peek reveal at a top secret location here in MN today. This new DB11 is one of four making the rounds to different private showings around the world. DB11 production doesn’t start until June. It was a great pleasure to get to see this pre-production model in the metal this far before it goes into production. Shout out to Morries Luxury Auto and Scott for the invite. Thank you!

Road Trip With The Astonishing GT4

One company I have the pleasure of working closely with is the Auto Vault in Eagan Minnesota. The Auto Vault is unique in that they bring some very cool opportunities to both the car community and to anyone who has an interest in luxury/exotic cars. Mischa, the owner of AV, makes a point to always have some of the greatest cars available to experience in a variety of ways through his company. From one day rentals to track experiences to ‘Fantasy Drive’ which let you experience all five of the cars over the span of a weekend on some great roads! Having formed a trustworthy relationship with AV, Mischa was gracious enough to lend me my personal favorite car of the bunch, the Porsche Cayman GT4, for a weekend! I decided to take it up to my hometown of Ely Minnesota and hit every great road between here and there. Results:

2016 Chicago Auto Show – Chicago Illinois

At this year’s Chicago Auto Show there were many cars and MANY people. No, I was not there on press day. However, the brand that totally brought their A-game was BMW. They had a flurry of new technology on display as well has a couple long awaited M models including the BMW M2 and M4 GTS. No matter what, its always exciting to get out and see some new cars during the cold winters here in the upper midwest. Dynamic Photowerk – Josh Hway

Holy Porsche Trinity

When the chance to photograph a brand new Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche GT3 RS, and Singer 911 on an airstrip comes around, you say yes. Absolutely, definitely, unequivocally yes! This shoot took place here in Minnesota on a quite airstrip with two very noisy cars and one electric car. Consider yourself lucky if you ever see one of these cars, to see all three together is really impossible.

International Motor Cycle Show 2016

The first few months of each year, while shadowed in the cold-darkness of winter, have one redeeming feature: auto shows. Yes, nothing gets the blood pumping more than looking at the next hot ride for the upcoming summer months. This time it was the IMS (International Motorcycle Show) that got me in out of the cold and into our very own Minneapolis. Thanks to Twisted Throttle, I was able to get in to grab some snaps of the current and next gen motorcycles. I try not to be biased, but I did start with Ducati. 🙂
