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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s kind of ironic that today’s the first day of Spring, but this was really the only time we both had time to take some snaps of his winter setup. The area we shot in didn’t have very smooth road and it got dark a lot faster than I expected, but I think the shots still came out okay.  Here […]

With over 600 miles and a couple weeks to let the springs settle, I met up with our tester to take final photos of his 09 WRX with EPIC Engineering springs to show off the drop after the springs have fully settled.  Everything looks great and he’s very happy!  We hope to start selling them very soon.  Here is another […]

My work with Dan and EPIC Engineering continues, now in a more formal marketing role.  Along with just taking photos, I’m also more involved in the R&D process and marketing the brand and products on various media, including online forums like NASIOC.  Above is the latest set of lowering springs that we’re testing for the 09+ WRX.  Special thanks to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Last Saturday, Erich, Jess, and I traveled 2 – 2 1/2 hours east on I-90 to shoot his car for an upcoming publication. The original areas we had in mind to shoot turned out to be extremely busy, thanks in part to the 90-100 degree temperatures that were predicted. However, after driving along for a bit, we found a scenic […]

I’m quite proud of this one 🙂  My cousin Wence’s 02 WRX has been published on TunerZine.com!  Click the photo or click here to check it out!

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 […]

My cousin Wence finally got his Advan TC-IIs on, so it was time for a quick shoot. These will eventually make it to TunerZine when I get a chance to take a few more photos. Special thanks to Kate for scoping out the location. This was my first time really experimenting with my SB-600 off camera + Lightsphere for automotive […]
