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.

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.

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 »

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 »

The 700 lb-ft of torque BMW 3 Series Wagon

When Larry Kosilla of AMMO NYC invited me to shoot a BMW 3 Series Touring Wagon a few weeks back, I assumed it was because he knows I have a thing for blue BMWs. That was only part of it. Larry had his friend Brian up from the Carolinas, and he brought with him a… Read More »

Hosting the 2020 BMW M3 Fall Meet and Cruise

For the past five years, I’ve hosted a special meet for BMW M3 owners, known as the Fall Meet and Cruise. Last year’s event was a great success. What started out as a simple meet with 15 cars has turned into a huge event with over 130 BMW M cars. I didn’t anticipate that turnout… Read More »
