Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca for Nissan

This past weekend was spent shooting the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca, primarily to photograph the U.S. debut of the GT-R 50, Nissan’s one-of-a-kind, $1 million sports car, of which only fifty will be made.

The Shell Eco-Marathon for Royal Dutch Shell

Photography: Action and behind-the-scenes at Sonoma Raceway

I had the fantastic opportunity to cover the 2018 Shell Eco-Challenge at Sonoma Raceway last month. The four-day event was a competition between college and high school engineering students to design, build and race the most fuel-efficient vehicle possible. The top winners of each category - electric, gasoline and hydrogen - proceeds to the big race in London later this year.

On Commission: Non-profit photography for Plant It Forward Farms

A recent commission to create fresh imagery for a Houston-based non-profit organization allowed me to see first-hand how refugees are being helped to establish themselves in their new country. Plant It Forward serves mainly Congolese refugees by allowing them to farm unused land in urban areas while letting participants keep all their profit. Farmers sell their fresh veggies at local farmers markets as well as farm-to-table based restaurants.

The images were used to build a new website, create print collateral and for social media publication. 

On Assignment: recent photographic work for a large chemical company

I'm proud to present work I recently completed for a large chemical company. It's always an adventure suiting up in fire-retardant clothing, steel-toe boots, gloves and safety glasses and venturing into the maze-like catacombs of a multi-billion dollar chemical plant expansion.

The scale of the project is awe-inspiring and I'm amazed how over 4000 people show up to work every day and bring such an enormous project into reality. Visually, it's always fun to get this close to the action, something most of us don't have the opportunity to do. The geometry, symmetry, and the amazing way everything visually fits together into one delights my eye.

Cheers,
