Two weekends ago I was contacted by my friend who is starting a vintage car/motorcycle restoration company called Riide/inc. He had two vehicles that he needed shot on that weekend as one of the two (the Nissan 280ZX) had already sold and was going to the client Sunday afternoon. We played with different ideas but knew we wanted a location shoot; so we broke out Google Earth and started browsing for the right location (truthfully, we then gave up on Google Earth and I called my friend who works for the Florida Trail Association and he told me where the spot was with everything we wanted). This weekend we’ll be shooting more for Riide/inc as they already have a great inventory of vehicles, but here are a few of my favorite shots from the first round.
On Saturday morning my shoot canceled. Always a bummer. But the good news was my friends and neighbors were bringing their car (and tiny chihuahua Taco) down to a car show in the center of our little town. So I walked down there and brought my camera, took some fun shots of their car (a Lamborghini named Hazzardo that looks very similar to the Bat Car) along with some of the other cool cars there. Maybe it was because of my love for UK Top Gear or growing up in a car family (thanks dad) but it was way too fun shooting these classic cars. In all the shooting excitement, I forgot to put on sunblock, which left me a nice burn. I think the pictures were worth it (and yes, that is Taco standing on Hazzardo).
