A little less than 15 years ago, I began my photography career when I started covering car shows for Subiesport Magazine. Little did I know at the time, this would lead me toward my current digital marketing career today, all thanks to my love for the Subaru brand. The recent announcement of the S209 made me feel nostalgic toward how […]

The old girl’s still got it! It’s been a long time since I’ve driven my WRX, “EVA-00” or “Eva” for short. She typically spends her days in my garage now that she’s been a few years retired now from the car show scene, but with my friend Kyle “KP” Pope in town bringing dry skies from Arizona, it was a […]

What a year, 2014 was! I may not have taken as many photos as I had in previous years, but I’d say the quality is up there amongst the best in recent memory. Rather than taking photos of anything and everything, I ended up being a bit more selective for the most part this year, and really took my time. […]

On April 17-18, the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) held their 16th annual Mudfest, which brings together the latest and greatest SUVs and crossovers for a competition to see which is the best, voted among NWAPA’s members. This year, 23 vehicles from 13 manufacturers participated in the competition at Dirtfish Rally School in Snoqualmie, Washington and I was honored to […]

Back in March, I was contacted by Modified Magazine to shoot two cars in the Seattle area for them. The first of these was David’s Mazda MPV, and the second one was Andrew’s Subaru RSTI as you can see above. It’s been awhile since I’ve shot a Subaru for a print magazine and thankfully it felt like I was right […]

There are very few cars that seem to universally appeal to the masses, and I’m fortunate enough that I was able to photograph one of them for NWMotiv last month.  I was also fortunate to have a rented D800 to play with for the shoot as well, which impressed me in just about every way possible.  We did a full […]

If you’re reading this, you’ve already noticed that the website looks very different!  As much as I love the Graph Paper Press templates, I felt like it was time for a change, so after a few days of looking at various designs (and trying out a few), I’ve settled on this new template from Theme Forest.  So far I think […]

First off, a big congratulations to Erica for making into the 2012 SubieGirls.com Calendar! I took these photos a few weeks ago, but Erica didn’t want me to publish them until the competition was over. Based on the number of forum posts she had on their forum, Erica was able to submit 2 photos and then the top 12 winners […]

Since I started using my Nikon D700 last November, I hadn’t really changed my line-up of lenses.  My Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D and Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D felt right at home with the new full frame sensor, and the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G satisfied my everyday walk around lens requirement, but none of these lenses really offered anything new to me.  On top […]

For my third year in a row, I spent a Saturday out of the year among my Subaru brethren at the West Coast Subaru Show.  This year, the show took place in Cashmere, Washington, just 10-15 minutes from both Leavanworth and Wenatchee.  Again I participated as one of the judges and also gave away a free photoshoot as part of […]

Following the NWMotiv International Automotive Showcase, I was fortunate enough to take some time to photograph Jeff’s STI, which turned out to be the Best of Show winner.  Jeff actually won a free giveaway photo session from me at last year’s West Coast Subaru Show, but thanks to the wonderous wait times of JDM parts, we were only able to […]

I was fortunate enough to spend the majority of last Saturday in the company of Erica and Angi.  This was simply just a fun photoshoot which also happened the serve the purposes of getting some formal headshots for Erica to start building her portfolio and to drive all the Subaru guys out there nuts: both Erica and Angi drive STIs.  […]

Formula D is one of the events I’ve always looked forward to as a photographer every year. I’ve been photographing Formula D since its inaugural event in the Pacific Northwest back in 2006, and it definitely seems to get better and better each year. There was absolutely zero rain this year and while it was definitely hot, it wasn’t quite […]

The nice guys at Fine Line Imports flew me down to Santa Rosa, CA last Saturday to take some snaps of their own and customer cars.   I can only post a few here since we’re trying for publication, but here’s a few to share. Ryan, Miles, and Steve really do some top-notch work. They really know their stuff and […]

A Tweet that I made yesterday seemed to have some people concerned, or at least confused or curious as to what’s going on. Thus, here is the explanation 🙂 As I mentioned in my blog about turning “The Dirty Thirty,” one of the biggest concerns I have as I “grow up” is paying down debts, so that I can buy […]

On September 1, 2004, a car show club was started at The Ram in University Village. Born out of the ashes of Team Intrinsic, this car club’s sole purpose was to have a good, familiar group of friends that loved to show off their cars at car shows in an organized team. Founding members Armin H. Ausejo, Wence Estrada, Emily […]

Didn’t get to take too many photos since I was busy judging, but I did get to take a few decent ones. This was the 11th year for the West Coast Subaru Show, and I felt that it was a great success! Mad props for Tex and all of the WCSS staff. All the photos: West Coast Subaru Show 11 […]

In its fourth year coming to the greater Seattle area, Formula D returned stronger and more exciting than ever this past Saturday, August 8th. I’ve been covering Formula D for Subiesport/DrivingSports each year it’s come to Seattle, and I honestly do believe it gets better and better every year. In past years, I’ve endured scorching heat (100+ temps on the […]

This was our second year participating in this great charity show for Habitat for Humanity. I was quite happy to see my team, Project One, take home the Best Team Quality award. Our individual members took home awards as well, including trophies in the 2-door, 4-door, and 5-door classes, as well as the award for Best Wheels. Congrats to all […]

One quick pic…I’ve been helping Dan at EPIC Engineering out with testing springs for the 08-09 STI, and I took a quick snap of how it’s looking with the latest prototype rear springs and bumpstops installed.  The car’s actually very dirty, but it didn’t come out in the photo 🙂  I added a little graduated ND filter for some emphasis […]
