1960 Ferrari 250 GT ...

By the time Ferrari started the Series II they wanted significant changes in its design so that the Series II could be easily differentiated from the California Spider. It was also made more practical for grand touring with a more accommodating and luxurious interior and a larger boot. The car...

1992 Ferrari 348 TB Through Three Lenses Mar14

1992 Ferrari 348 TB Through Three Lenses

At February’s Scuderia Southwest Cars and Coffee I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend and fellow photographer to tag along and shoot an incredible 2012 Lamborghini Aventador.  March’s event rolled around and I was able to setup a similar situation, but with a little twist.  Otis Blank told me he was on his way up from Tuscon for Cars and Coffee and I knew Ashwin Gupta, who helped setup and also shot the Aventador, was very likely to be at the event as well, I began looking for cars to shoot.  My friend John was kind enough to take his beautiful 1992 Ferrari 348 TB to a couple locations for us to shoot, which was a long time coming.  I’ve known John for years, I’ve seen him...

One Bull, 700 Horses – Lamborghini Aventador Feb12

One Bull, 700 Horses – Lamborghini Aventador

With most of the photo shoots that I do, they are planned well in advance, usually months, and the car is usually one I’ve been eying even longer.  But, every now and then, I just find myself in the right place at the right time.  Or, know the right people and see them at the right time.  That is the case with this particular photo shoot, this stunning Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4.  I was out at Cars and Coffee when a friend and fellow photographer approached me and told me that they were heading out to shoot the car and asked if I would like to tag along.  Of course, I leapt at the opportunity and the photos that follow are the result.

At Ferrari’s annual press conference in 1964, Enzo had a surprise up his sleeve; the introduction of the everyday Ferrari. Received with great fanfare, the new 330 could stand the daily stop-and-go grind, yet was still packed with the excitement that is expected of a Ferrari. Making its...

Something Wicked This Way Comes… Oct31

Something Wicked This Way Comes…

For Halloween this year, I present a small automotive treat.  When I realized I knew the owners of each of these cars, I knew what had to be done and I knew exactly how I wanted to do it. With nearly identical color scheme and a very similar concept and approach, this Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and Porsche 911 GT3 RS seemed like a natural match. Both amped up and stripped down versions of more common and more tame base cars, they’re the evil twins of the automotive world and unabashedly aggressive in both visually and mechanically.

AVENTADOR! AVENTADOR! Oct22

AVENTADOR! AVENTADOR!

While out and about with my camera, I happened to swing by the local Lamborghini dealership and to my surprise, I saw this brilliant white bull through the dealership windows.  While I did know that at least one Aventador had been in town for nearly two months now, this was my first time seeing one and… wow.  I liked it in photos, but like so many things, you really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it.  Finished in matte “Bianco” white (a fourteen THOUSAND dollar option) it was absolutely stunning.  I always feel like white is a telling color for a car.  It can either make it look like an appliance or a work of art and in the case of this particular Lamborghini, it makes it...

I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with this Concours level 1972 De Tomaso Pantera and, honestly, out of the countless Panteras I’ve seen in person, this is certainly in the top ten, if not the top three.  More subtle than so many Panteras you see, it is everything I’d...

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at Cars and Coffee Oct04

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at Cars and Coffee

While a large number of rare and beautiful cars made their way out to to the October’s Scuderia Southwest Cars and Coffee, a stunning blue ’62 Ferrari 250 GTO (serial number 3387) was without a doubt the star of the show. It’s the second GTO produced and was raced at Sebring in March of ’62 where it placed second over all and first in GT with Phil Hill and Oliver Gendebien behind the wheel. It later raced at Le Mans in June of ’62 and then went on to race in NART and by a privateer after that and is one of very few GTOs raced as a factory team car. It’s been repainted a number of times since it was built and received a number of minor cosmetic changes at those times, but...
