On a beautiful Sunday afternoon last weekend I got a call from a good friend who asked if I wanted to stop by and get some shots of a gorgeous Grigio Antares Lamborghini Aventador that they had just picked up. I spent about half an hour with the car as we spun her around to get a few different angles. A special “Thank You” goes out to AutoXotic for providing the car. Continue reading →
I am honored to say that for the past four years I’ve been a part of the best automotive event in Florida. In its tenth year, the Celebration Exotic Car Festival reigns supreme, offering everything from two track days at the world’s most famous racing circuit (Daytona), a world-class concours style car show, one of Orlando, Florida’s premiere VIP parties, and a blisteringly fast road rally through the countryside. I’ve been donating my services as a media photographer since 2010 and this year was the best yet. Continue reading →
I purchased a 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo last month and have been slowly snapping some photos of it. I plan to do a full shoot in the next few days but here’s a little preview of the new ride. I have to say that I’m loving everything about it so far.
As our monthly Cars & Coffee meets have been getting bigger and bigger we had a nice little treat this month. The Suncoast British Car Club sent us an email saying we will be invaded by the British for the April meet. They rolled into Suncoast Motorsports with over 20 little British cars and helped us break our attendance record with an amazing 87 cars. Guests saw everything from a Lingenfelter supercharged Corvette Grand Sport to a Porsche Carrera GT and even a 1,000 horsepower Toyota Supra Turbo. And as always at Suncoast, Panera bagels and Starbucks coffee keeps everyone happy.
It’s never a bad thing when I get the opportunity to take a brand new Porsche out for a private photoshoot. It’s also not a bad thing when one of my sponsors happens to be the number one Porsche Parts and Accessories wholesaler in the United States. Case in point: A 2013 Porsche 991 Carrera S Cabriolet fitted with a full carbon fiber Vorsteiner V-GT Aero Package.
I had the opportunity to finally get some private time with one of my favorite modern Ferraris, the incredible Scuderia Spider 16M. The 16M represents Ferrari’s 16th Constructor’s Championship in Formula 1 racing back in 2008. It’s just as raw and hardcore as its hardtop sibling, but sounds even better with no roof. A perfect car for, well, everyday! Continue reading →
With the recent release of Ferrari’s all-new fire breathing F12 Berlinetta dealerships throughout the United States have been getting their turn at a local launch party. Current and potential customers receive invites to see the car up close and personal while enjoying food, drinks, and great company. Ferrari of Tampa Bay hosted their viewing of the F12 last week and I was fortunate enough to be able to cover the event. I had my beautiful girlfriend along with me to enjoy the evening.

The annual Sarasota Exotic Car Festival keeps getting bigger and better. The kickoff party for the 2013 SECF was held at Lamborghini Sarasota where the brand new facelifted 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 was unveiled. Guests enjoyed drinks, hor d’oeuvres, a live band and a stunning display of the area’s upper echelon of exotic cars.
On December 1, 2012 Suncoast Motorsports in Sarasota, Florida hosted the 2012 Holiday Toy Run, with all proceeds going to the Toys for Tots foundation. The event kicked off with the monthly Cars & Coffee meet, followed by a spirited 80-mile road rally through the countryside, and arrived back at Suncoast for a cookout. Over 50 cars attended Cars & Coffee in the morning and 36 cars made the journey on the traffic-free roads in East Sarasota County.
An entire pallet box was overflowing with toy donations and a check for $350 was presented to the Toys for Tots foundation. Thank you to everyone who donated and participated. We’ll see you all next year! Continue reading →
The annual Orlando Supercar run departed from Lamborghini Palm Beach and headed West to the Portofino Resort Hotel in Orlando, Florida. About 25 cars made the journey for an overnight stay at the beautiful resort across the street from Universal Studios. My camera car was a gorgeous Maserati Gran Turismo Convertible.
