Summer to Winter In A Lamborghini Huracan - Houston Automotive Photography

How do you take a Lamborghini Huracan from a warm climate to winter wonderland in a couple of hours?  Photoshop of course... The original photo was actually shot earlier in the summer and Ted at EVS Motors asked if I could make the shop a holiday card.  I've learned most if not all the tools in photoshop, so this was a good test to see how creative I could get with[...]

Scion FR-S / Toyota 86 / GT86 - Houston Automotive Photography

One of the best looking RWD platforms out there today is the hyped up Scion FR-S.  Check out some photos I took near Paper Co. Cafe.   I've owned this car for just a little over 4 years now and I'm pretty happy with it.  I'm nearing 75k miles now and the only major tune ups you should look out for are spark plugs, clutch (throwout bearing), [...]

Day Trip to Austin, TX - 50mm Life

Austin, TX - "hill country" or the capitol of Texas, is about 2 - 2.5 hrs away from Houston depending where you're driving from.  I had planned to make a day trip to Austin for awhile now, but found a reason to do it much sooner...I had bought a set of wheels online from a seller in California.  The plan was to get some friends to pick up the wheels and ship them [...]

2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat for EVO Italy - Automotive Photography

Earlier this year, I got a call from a friend asking if I was available for a magazine shoot, and I said sure....  That's when Andrea (pronounced Andre) Bottini contacted me.  Long story short, the feature was for EVO Italy Magazine on the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat. As per usual, thanks for reading or following what I do.  I'm a little bac[...]

It's Day 5, or 8/6 Saturday, of our trip and our game plan was to check out Antonio Alvendia's show, 86FEST, and then head up to Angeles Crest for photos.  If [...]

Journey to the West - Part 2

Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ― Mark Twain With so much going on in the world right, everyone needs to chill, and take a trip somew[...]
