This was a hectic month. Been swarmed with work and more work. Not in anyway a complaint though. I’d still like to have an equal balance of work and fun rather than doing nothing at all.
This trip was planned right after the August 22nd trip. We figured that after the first track day at the Ridge we’d be able to run faster times this time around.
So here we are, after a good 4 hour drive from Vancouver, BC to Shelton, WA.
Yes it’s been almost a month after the day but I wasn’t planning to upload these photos.
It was my first time tracking at the Ridge Motorsports Park. This track is awesome! Had so much fun and I’m going back again sometime this month. I was spending more time prepping the car and running off the track so I didn’t take a lot of photos that day haha.
I’ve been commissioned to shoot for Vossen Wheels again, this time a 4 door Infiniti G37 sedan. The owner was very excited to see this so instead of taking my time typing, I’m just going to upload it so he can see it haha. Thanks Manny for bringing out such a wicked ride and Anthony from Vossen wheels.
Went to Pacific Raceway in Kent 2 days ago and shot an open track day event for 2 of my friends. They’re both part of the APL motorsports crew. Both of the cars are at the extreme ends-597whp sti vs give or take 90-100whp miata. I also met a few guys there. There are a few Audi R8s, 911s, mustangs and vipers, but the one that caught my eye was a NSX with an amazing exhaust note. I also like the black BMW M3 E46 which is running a nice set of motons for suspension and RAC monolites wrapped in nt01s. It’s okay if you don’t understand one bit of what I just said because the pictures explain everything!
Arthur’s STI getting ready for track
Before I continue any further, R.I.P. Steve Jobs. A great innovator and visionary. He will be remembered as the tech legend.
Okay now onto the happier things. Through out the summer, I’ve done a few shoots here and there, and this is one of them I would love to share. A track prepped STI with nothing short of amazing. It’s not the most powerful out there, and certainly not the lowest, but the car stands out by itself because of how clean the car is with combination of unique parts. Not something we would normally see in Vancouver, B.C.
The setting of the shot was quite a coincidence. The weather was perfect, the time was plenty, and the subject was perfect. I know to most people, shooting a black car is hard, but for me, to make a white car stand out in photos are far more challenging than any other color.
Thanks Barry! It was real fun shooting the car! Canibeat feature right here!
This summer is just swarmed with shoots for weddings and cars for me. So busy I don’t even have time to update my blog. Since I’m on my break editing photos, here’s one set of photos I shot for Vossen Wheels. Owner was a great guy to work with. Thank you for Jav and staffs at Vossen Wheels for this opportunity! Loved how some of these shots came out!
Wheels are VVS082 – Black Machined – F: 20×9 / R: 20×10.5
You guys wouldn’t know how excited I was when I received a message to shoot this car. It’s one of the cars that I’m really crazy about (and if you guys know me, I’m not always the biggest fan when it comes to exotics because I can’t afford them haha). Like the Toyota 2000 gt, the Lexus LF-A is an iconic piece of engineering masterpiece. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the sound in the pics. This car sounds amazing and nothing even comes close to it.
I originally didn’t want to bother uploading these but I am getting a lot of requests. These shots are from the June 11, 2011 PCA (Porsche Club America) high performance driving event. I didn’t get to drive because my car isn’t ready so I end up there taking pictures. I didn’t get every single car but I did get the ones I like :P
If you happen to know the owner of any of these cars, feel free to let them know!
Had the chance to shoot Adon’s G35 again. The first shoot was done back in Aug of 2009. Adon showed up this time with some crazy stanced g35 so for me, I know I have to do something that would look better than last time. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t giving us any chances and we’ve postponed the shoot numerous times. I have to say I have quite a few photos I like from the shoot. Framing and composition were quite limited because the background in around the area were quite busy. Regardless the shots came out better than I wanted it to be so I’m a happy man :) These photos will also appear on Canibeat and DPE wheels. Once again, thanks Adon for the amazing car I get to shoot!
Went for a shoot to test out my new equipment! Did some testing with my newly acquired Radio popper JRX system.
