Today's adventure started out with an early morning coffee run to Fourtillfour, where I usually find myself surrounded by Porsches and other classic European automobiles. This morning was different however, as Nico hosted another genre of his particularly favored vehicles. Amongst the Land Cruisers and other versatile machines, today's theme was "Adventure Mobiles." Following the coffee and conversation, a few of us decided to take some of the trucks out to the river. This journey was too tough for my personal Touareg on 22's and street tires; so I ditched it at a pull-off and continued onward in Nico's Tacoma. Beers were enjoyed, rivers were jumped in, and good times were had. Here are some shots from our trek to Rio Verde.
I'm currently in Georgia for the annual early summer Volkswagen show held in Georgia. However, this year's setting has slightly changed. Southern Wörthersee, traditionally known as "Sowo," has been the iconic event that garnered the attraction of enthusiasts for years in the quaint German-styled town of Helen, Ga. This beloved show has now transitioned into a new chapter, and is currently known as The European Experience, hosted in the city of Savannah. With an unfamiliar tone and strange new surroundings, this event is certainly under everyone's scope of judgement. Opinions have been mixed throughout, but the weekend is still young. I'm eager to see how the remainder of the show transpires into tomorrow and Sunday. Here are some quick captures from around town Friday.
Coming to the monthly Saturday morning coffee hangout fairly regularly, I really grew fond of Nico's desert-rat style Porsche 356. Nico, who owns Fourtillfour Coffee, runs these intimate Porsche inspired meet-ups every month. We wanted to capture video of the essence that Fourtillfour embodies. This car, a character in its own, tackles the desert with vigor. But standing as a relic of art, the car welcomes fellow Porsches and owners to relax and enjoy the scene Fourtillfour has created. Enjoy this video featuring Nico's patina'd, raw, wonderful 356.
I just spent a week in Florida for our Palm Beach auction. After long days of shooting and editing content for car features, sponsors, auction action, and everything in between, I'm proud to present the final recap video. Check out the coverage here:
I've been very busy full-time with Barrett-Jackson and it's been challenging to start new in Arizona. However, the locals I've met so far have been very welcoming and friendly. I met Paul after seeing with his car make the rounds on social media. After reaching out to shoot, we went out and raced the sunset to capture this video.
Around here, it seems like very week there's something automotive related going on. I'm very lucky to live in such a place as passionate about cars as I am. Last weekend I visited Fountain Hills for the Concours in the Hills event. There was a little bit of everything here.
I just discovered a local spot in Old Towne Scottsdale that brings together great coffee and classic Porsches. I plan on regularly visiting this monthly gathering and eventually producing a video for them.
I just redid this website, and it will act as a gallery and blog for all my new work. I recently moved to Scottsdale, AZ to take a position as the head cinematographer for Barrett-Jackson. We just wrapped our local auction in January and I survived the chaos that comes with it. Our next auction is in April in Palm Beach, FL. Here is the video recap I produced:
