Behind the Scenes // Pikes Peak 2022

The Pikes Peak Hill Climb is grueling event testing the relationship of man and machine from conquering the 12.42 miles of one-way pavement to the summit of Pikes Peak. Check out the video I put together showcasing from a photographer’s perspective documenting a week’s worth of travel and early morning arrivals just to capture moments of challenges and successes.

The Classifieds // Mike’s 1982 Toyota Celica Supra

The mk2 Toyota Celica represents a bunch of different things in my life. Going back to my late 80’s childhood era, memories of my dad’s white 1982 Toyota Celica which took us every where and was pretty much everything to us from the family’s road trip mobile, school bus, and ambulance for me and my brothers. A good friend of mine, who is also a Toyota fanatic, forwarded me a Craigslist ad pointing to a 1982 Toyota Celica Supra for […]

#ShredIT with OTC Racing

With 2020, you think being at home for 99% of the time, the idea of meeting new people and collaborating would never take place. Fortunately, I was at the right place and at the right time. While at the 2020 Grid Life Alpine Horizon event, I was looking at a broken carbon fiber drive shaft and out of no where, the person behind the carnage, Tasso, walks up and we just started chatting. He noticed my brother’s and my bags […]

Gridlife 2020 // Alpine Horizons

As the vast majority of people do, towards the end of last year, I made a commitment to myself that 2020 was going to be “the year.”  For me, it was the year that I was supposed set more time aside in my schedule to attend more events and car shows to photograph, capture more video and ultimately, restart my YouTube channel (shameful plug // my YouTube channel: As we all know, 2020 will go down in history as […]

Jeff N // 2001 E46 BMW M3 Convertible

With the recent pandemic, seeing anyone and doing anything remotely fun has been lacking. Fortunately last week, I had an absolute amazing time catching up with my marketing/creative guru homie, Jeff N. Plus, I finally woke my camera out of its sleeping bag to photograph his beautiful, 100% stock, Laguna Seca BMW E46 M3 Convertible. Let’s revisit the key word I said in the last sentence, stock. Like how it was intended on the designer’s paper. Not even one vinyl […]

GRIDLIFE // Alpine Horizon

It’s always tough for me to attend multi-day events now since I have a growing family but I am so grateful to have been able to at least attend one out of the three days in Fountain, Colorado for the Gridlife Alpine Horizon event. Usually Gridlife is just a huge trackday event however, the Alpine Horizon is a first of many. One is that this is furthest west Gridlife have ever been. Second, this event builds on top of the […]

Quickie Photoshoot // Gene S. 2017 Ford Focus RS

After getting rid of his Harley, my good friend Gene wanted to have something that he could he use throughout the winter months and a bit more practical. Being all-wheel drive and a handy hatchback, the 2017 Ford Focus RS checks off all the right boxes. Gene have a lot of plans for the RS and wanted to me photograph the chronicles of modding. We didn’t really have much time, so we ran up the hill to the National Wind […]
