Last year, I shot two launch events for Toyota USA, the launch of the new Tundra and 4Runner and the launch of the new Corolla. I must’ve made a great impression, because this year the same agency hired me to shoot the launch event for the new Lexus NX here in Seattle. Unlike the Corolla shoot, which would take place at […]

Back in June, I was contacted by a PR firm asking for a quote for some automotive photography. A month later, I found out that they accepted my offer, and I was pleased to find out that I’d be shooting photos for PR and editorial use for Toyota USA!
