A look inside Detailer’s Domain with some M2s

I love working with detailers. It’s a natural fit. They make the cars clean, and I make ’em look good. This time, I’d be visiting Detailer’s Domain, with owner Phil Yiu. If you live anywhere in the tri-state area (and even beyond), then you know this place is famous for working on high-end cars. Did… Read More »

The BMW E34 M5 shoot

There is a road I used to drive with my E92 M3 in my old home town. It’s a long switchback, mostly empty, and no one knows about it. But for this shoot with an E34 M5, the client said “rural”. Time to break out the secret road! A little back story on this one.… Read More »

Shooting at the MINI Driving Experience – Part 2

Last week, I showed you how I shot at the MINI Driving Experience. Here’s part two… Do you ever get too close? Well, no, because I’m still here, writing. You’ve probably seen the writing on your car’s passenger mirror “Objects in mirror are closer…” That applies to looking through your lens as well. More than… Read More »

Shooting at the MINI Driving Experience

In 2019, I was invited down to the BMW Performance Center to capture all the action, and in November of 2020, I was invited once again to South Carolina. But this wouldn’t be a shoot for Roundel badges. This time, it’s MINI! This was a shoot unlike any other, so the post this week will… Read More »

The 2020 recap

Just like everyone else on the planet, 2020 has been a year to remember for me. Thankfully, shooting cars is something that can be done safely outside, so there were still plenty of amazing vehicles to get a good look at through my lens. Here’s a 2020 recap! 1 – BMW M School Yes, I… Read More »

Shooting the Saleen S7

Next up in Larry’s incredible garage is sort of a unicorn. As an automotive photographer, I’ve seen and shot all sorts of rare vehicles, but the last time I could remember seeing a Saleen S7 was at an auto show almost 20 years ago. Yet here it was, in front of me. Once again, the… Read More »

Shooting the Rimac Concept One

Larry’s garage at the AMMO NYC headquarters is a palace of clean, and you never know what will show up. Still, when he called and said he had a Rimac Concept One coming in from Manhattan Motorcars, I was pretty surprised. It’s not every day you get to hang out with a hyper car of… Read More »

Shooting a car with a prime lens

I’m a big proponent of the zoom lens. There are so many factors when shooting a car, why complicate it further by moving your entire set up around because of a prime lens? Because they are sharper, faster and can give you a better image. So, let’s shoot a car using only a prime lens.… Read More »

Shooting the Audrain Museum’s Porsche 911

The natural progression of automotive enthusiasm seems to be something like this. Cheap sport compact > BMW M car > Porsche 911. Among sports cars, they are a dime a dozen (and the engine is in the wrong place), but what about an older one…? Audrain Automobile Museum The story for this actually starts back… Read More »

The ultimate BMW E9X M3 review

This is a repost I wrote for Bimmerpost, “An exit interview with my E9X M3 / Good bye!” in March of 2019. Yes, YES, it’s true. I’ve sold my M3, to a fellow forum member actually, which I am very grateful for. So another original owner goes away, but I hope I’ve been able to… Read More »
