February Photo shoots

February is usually one of the slowest months of the year for me which is nice to have some downtime, but by the end of the month, I start to get cabin feverand cant wait to start traveling and getting busy with shoots.

Early in the month I headed over to Tein for Import Tuner for a two car feature and cover shoot.. I got there a bit early and decided to drive around my hometown a bit. I was sad to see how rundown things have gotton over the years, it’s a shame because it used to be a really nice city, but how the traffic is horrible and the business center is slowly decaying.

 

On the 23rd I had a cover shoot shoot for RV magazine, we took a truck and trailer to the cajon pass and did a lot of car to car photos, a fairly  easy shoot to do and the cover came out nice

February 26th shoot was at the former el toro marine air station for truckin magazine.  This was a testing day where they had six trucks doing slalom and braking. They took baseline numbers and then did some modifications and reran the tests. It was a bit of a long day, mostly what  I had to shoot was the behind the scenes photos and action photos on the track.. There was also a feature to shoot at the end of the day.

One of the trucks got a little out of control and ended up in the dirt and had to be pulled out
