Will's McLaren 570S at the Amazon Spheres

Will’s McLaren 570S in Seattle

I love repeat customers, and when Will contacted me to ask if I’d like to shoot his newest McLaren, I jumped at the chance. Instead of the more scenic backgrounds that we used for his McLaren MSO 650S Spyder, Will wanted to do more inner city backdrops and get some nice rolling shots over Lake Washington. We went from Ballard to downtown Seattle, and even spent some time at the new Amazon Spheres in South Lake Union. Many thanks to […]

Ashton Solecki Collage

Ashton Solecki with the Nikon 105mm f/1.4G

When my good friend Ashton asked me to take some new headshots for her, it was a great opportunity to rent and test out the Nikon 105mm f/1.4G. I had rented and tested out the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 a few months ago, and while the lens is really superb, it didn’t really quite have that “wow” factor for me. On the other hand, the Nikon 105mm was fantastic right away, and testing it out with Ashton really made it shine. […]

Armin Ausejo Photography 2017 Year in Review

2017 Year in Review

Life caught up to me quite a bit in 2017. I took the least number of photos this year than any other year since I started shooting professionally, with the vast majority of the photos revolving around friends and family. There were even entire months where I didn’t even shoot anything. That’s not a bad thing though, since some of my most cherished memories of late have come from this year alone. I just concentrated more on enjoying the moment […]

Mackey's Turbo Project Mazda 3

Mackey’s Turbo Project Mazda 3

When my good friend Mackey asks if anyone’s interested to help him shoot photos of his car, I’m typically first in line. Mackey and I started NWMotiv.com back in 2010 and he’s always been not only a great friend and business partner, but also a mentor when it comes to photography. So, whenever he calls the banners, I always answer the call. Mackey’s been working on his Mazda 3 project car for a few years now, and just recently added […]

The Valley of Fire

The Valley of Fire

A couple weeks ago, I went to visit my best friend Sidnee down in Las Vegas. She had a great idea to go check out The Valley of Fire, just about an hour north of the city. We had a pretty packed day so we didn’t end up staying very long, but it was long enough to get some fantastic photos. The colors and textures were so awesome that I ended up experimenting with some alternate post processing styles for […]
