FRESH New Look !

After being up for close to two months now, i figured it was about time for a change. I've spent the last 4 days reconstructing everything, its a pretty big improvement over the cluttered 1 page layout i had before. Enjoy the changes.

Gloomy Thanksgiving eve

I found myself downtown today killing some time, i figured i'd go to the national mall and take pictures of people doing stuff, cuz who wouldnt want their picture taken on vacation right? WRONG, it didn't go so well. Only one family said yes, Thanks Guys. people dont take kindly to some random black guy walking up asking to take their picture. I will most likely not try that again. Oh well, the flowers and the cat didnt mind their snap shots.

Welcome



OK! so with this being my first official post, i'm going to take this opportunity to just go back and all of my previous galleries to this page in order from most current to oldest. As you will see, most of what i have is automotive related but i am working very hard to gain opportunities to expand the variety in my portfolio, i'd definatly like to get some people, parties, models, weddings, babies, pets ect, im about tired of doing cars. Questions and comments are welcome and encouraged. Just use the links below each seprate post.

ULTRABAR

11/12/09 Did a professional shoot @ Ultrabar nightclub in Washington D.C. with my friend Ryan, this was my first time shooting in the club but i think the pix came out pretty nice.



ANOTHER NIGHT IN D.C.

Afterwords, we didnt quite feel like going home, it wasnt cold, and the rain had finally stoped after pouring constantly all week, Eddie came out and joined us. my tripod was broken, so this was another first for me, a night shoot with no tripod, pretty much all hand held. it was fun till i got a stupid speed camera ticket when we were leaving :(, we were out till about 4:30am.















LIFE AQUATIC

Just thought i'd try some under water type stuff,  this is my friend's newest edition, the spotted puffer.





IMPORTS VS DOMESTICS

This is from the World Cup Finals in Budds Creek MD, also known as "Imports Vs Domestics." The imports didnt stand a chance this year, and im pretty disappointed, almost none of the MK4 Supras could even make it down the track and half of the Civics crapped out as usual, breakdowns didn't ruin the event this year like previous years.






































 
CIVIC DUTY

I did this shoot for a good friend of mine. Heres pretty boy Ricky rollin on Indian Head hwy with his panda express civic.




VEEEEE DUUUUB!!!

Ive never been too much of a VW fan but Ryan's car is pretty hot. This is the first shoot i did of his ride.




DC @ NIGHT

I this is a semi late night shoot, around 9:30 although a have been known to be out till just before sunrise. This was kind of an experimental shoot, i just tried a few different techniques. The photo of the chain rail is hdr. Most people think all my pix are HDR but honestly, in all of my photos, there may only be 3 more that are HDR. Although i love the look, the HDR process is too time consuming and tedious and dosnt always produce a desired effect.





NAVIN AND CF DPE WHEELS!

First off, i'd like to thank Navin Kumar for the opportunity to be the first person to shoot the very first set of carbon fiber veneer wheels produced by DPE (Dynamic Performance Engineering). At the time of these photos, these were a one-off set of wheels and probabably cost more than the car you drive >WOW<. He is a carbon fiber collector, he has an [everything] made of CF, including his mechanical heart implant, so i dont really blame him. Thanx 2 Navin, The Carbon fiber Prince.



 






RAIN

This was another one of those odd extra long rain spells. I think this one lasted almost two weeks. On this particular night there was a constant fine misting not unlike the mist machines that you stand under at theme parks in the summer time to cool down. Small droplets of water collected everywhere and stuck to everything giving the surroundings a very interesting texture up close. the main challenge was just keeping the camera and lens dry and keeping major smudges off of the lens so i could keep shooting, although the smudges that were left behind produced an interesting effect. Im glad my camera and lens werent damaged though, everything was soaked. Eddie joined me on this one.




















CHASE CAR

I did these photos for a good buddy of mine named Chase, this is my second time shooting his amazing car, i still think i can do some better shots, so if u r reading this man, let me know when we can shoot again, i just dont feel like sitting in traffic all the way to and from Silver Springs lol.


 


THE DAMN LOST!

This is my bike crew. X and Amal with their matching GSXR 750's and my YZF-R6. Our name is a spoof from our favorite fideo game of all time GTA IV.






EDDY'S SCION

This is the first shoot i did of Eddie's Scion Tc. We were down in old town Alexandria witch is quite scenic. I cant wait to go back there and shoot again.


 


REVISION AUTO BBQ

This was pretty fun, Revision Auto had a nice open house BBQ, there were some pretty awesome custom cars that rolled in, NO TRAILER QUEENS! thats the way a car show should be!



Lastly, here are a mixed selection of my older photos
