SEMA 2015 : getting ready

Another year has passed. This is our fourth adventure to America’s playground. Coming from Florida it feels unreal looking out the airplane window at the massive red mountains.

24 Hours at ROLEX : 2015

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph some pretty amazing cars ever since I joined up with The Charis Culture, everything from souped-up Supras and RX-7s, to old school Corvette Stingrays and Datsuns (coming soon).

Supras In Vegas Part 2 : The Meet

Jet lag is horrible. I’m usually pretty good on little to no sleep before a long day. I’ve done it countless times before, but jet lag really messes with the sleep schedule, and I had to be up at 4:45am. Since I was already awake, I figured I’d get on the computer and knock out […]
