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 →
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.

Another great turnout at Suncoast Motorsports, the host of our local Cars & Coffee and my newest sponsor.

All makes and models welcome! Continue reading →
The word “Murciélago” means bat in the Spanish language. It was also the name of a famous bull that survived 28 sword strikes during a bullfight in 1879. Its very fitting that Lamborghini decided to throw a set of wings (air intakes) on their flagship V12 supercar.
This photo is a composite of two images. The Murciélago and the roadway were shot in South Florida during a supercar run back in December 2011. I searched around on Google Images for a background that would work well with the foreground. I performed a simple background replacement via Adobe Photoshop and this is the result.
For the second consecutive year I was fortunate enough to photograph the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance for Teamspeed.com. This year was particularly special as it was the Ferrari 250 GTO reunion. 12 GTO’s valued from $10-$30 million each were displayed on the greens of the Ritz-Carlton Resort in Amelia Island, Florida. In my eyes the Ferrari 250 GTO has long been the most beautiful automobile ever designed and I was honored to be in attendance.
The show field was amazing this year with the winner of Best of Show Concours d’Elegance going to a 1938 Bugatti Type 57C from the Off Brothers Collection of Richland, Michigan and Best of Show Concours de Sport was awarded to the coveted 1962 Ferrari 330 LM / GTO owned by Jim Jaeger, one of the first two four-liter GTOs built by the Ferrari factory.

This photo was shot at the Start/Finish Line at Daytona International Speedway during the Celebration Exotic Car Festival. Larry was having a blast out there in his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. I was fortunate enough to ride along as a passenger with Larry for a few laps. There’s nothing quite like hitting the high banks of Daytona in an open-top Lamborghini.
On Saturday June 16, 2012 Luxury4Play’s week long automotive journey hit beautiful Tampa Bay and duPont Registry’s monthly Cars & Coffee gathering. The goldRush Rally, celebrating 4 years of chaos, brought out the big guns this year. The infamous L4P/Platinum Motorsports matte white Bugatti Veyron was accompanied by two more Bugattis, along with Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, McLarens, and a wide array of exotic cars all stickered up in gold decals.
