It's 2019... and two iconic cars meet up for a quick battle in Downtown Houston... who took took the victory? History shows that the hachiroku has never been defeated on Mt. Akina... but this... is..

Short Vids: Another Visit to ATL - 2018 August

After being stuck in ATL for 24 hrs in February, I definitely had to come back... so I made the excuse of going to ATL for Gridlife South 2018.  I brought along my Sony A6300, 16-50mm lens, and rode mic to see how the video would come out.  It's now the end of November and decided to throw something together... the .mov files are quick and painless to edit in Adobe Pr[...]

The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet 2018

The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet -  free to attend, bad ass classic Japanese cars, good local craft beer, cool/cold weather, and lots of car people.  I'd say this year's turnout for JNCM was pretty good.... not too crazy or out of hand like the Wekfest Pre Meet, but enjoyable without too much concern lol.  With that being said, we really appreciate those who attended, [...]

The Ricer Series - Pec's N2 AE86 Levin

  Hi Stranger...  It's been a while since my last post, but I promise I'll catch up on what I've been doing in the next month... maybe. Until then, I'm going to start up a new photo series called "The Ricer Series".  This will be more of a personal project featuring friends, cars, places, or things to be considered 'rice'.  Why 'rice'?  Because it's either fuck[...]

I Missed My Flight - 24 Hrs in ATL

How does one miss their flight??  By accidentally not checking their flight itinerary gate and time... 2 hrs before the scheduled flight... yeah... not intentional lol.  BUT, it worked out because a friend let me crash at his place for a night.  I also had time to explore a little before flying back home to Houston... I was actually flying from The Arnold Classic d[...]

Copaze x 1013MM Autoshowoff Car Meet 2017

Back in March of 2017, I took a short trip out to HKG /Taipei during my break from projects and gigs.  The plan was to do some editorial coverage of 1013mm's Copaze x 1013MM Autoshowoff Car Meet 2017 event in HKG during my visit.  Unfortunately, the coverage never went through and I'm able to do whatever I want with the images.  Unfortunately, that's #freelancelife.
