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 →
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.
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.

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.

All makes and models welcome! Continue reading →
Just as I did a year ago at the 2011 Ferrari Challenge event in South Florida I was on hand as a media photographer shooting exclusively for Teamspeed.com. The day started out at The Collection for breakfast with a tasty lineup of beautiful Ferraris. We departed on a police escorted caravan to the race track for hours of fun out on the road course. A catered lunch before the Challenge race kept everyone refreshed during the day. Over 100 street cars and twenty 458 Challenge race cars attended the event. Continue reading →
It has gotten rather difficult to continually explain the emotions that I feel while working alongside my good friend Brian Guy, owner of AOWheels, Florida’s premiere paint correction specialist. After photographing his amazing craftsmanship on an Aston Martin DBS, a BMW Z8, the iconic Ferrari F40, and most recently one of the most desirable hypercars on the planet, I can honestly say I’m one of the luckiest photographers and car enthusiasts in the world.

A good friend of mine really knows how to have fun. Every time I’ve seen him behind the wheel of his highly modified Ferrari 355 Challenge he’s grinning from ear to ear. This image is of my friend ripping up Sebring International Raceway during a Ferrari Challenge Club Racing event in 2011. I’ll never forget what he told me that weekend: “Drive fast and take risks.”
