Well it's been 5 months since my last post and it's good to be back to my photo blog! I missed posting and I'm glad you're back. As you will see here, my disappearance from this labor of love was not because I dropped out of the car kulture scene, or lacked content. There are three major shows represented here and a few smaller ones, along with shoots for a major project I'm working on.
Starting things off here at Viva Las Vegas 16, with the beautiful Nico Jones. Nico was on the cover/featured in Deadbeat Magazine, March- Issue #25 ---- the same issue my Mooneyes Xmas party photos were published. If you've never picked up a copy of Deadbeat you're missing one of the finest kulture magazines out there.
Below is a Viva bound caravan shot. A great group of Phoenicians hit the show this year and will be well documented in another publication soon....I'll keep you posted.

Above and below...shots from the Ink & Iron Festival at the Queen Mary, Long Beach. My coverage from this great show will be featured in the upcoming Issue 27 of Deadbeat Magazine due out in Sept. This was my first trip out to this show...I highly recommended it.

Above is one of my favorite bands, The Woolly Bandits out of L.A. California. I caught them a couple time this year in Phoenix and I was thrilled when I heard they were playing at Ink & Iron. Check out this band!!!
Back in April I got an email from Katar Kustom Kuitars...a custom guitar maker out of Finland. They are part of the Amplisonic company that builds amplifiers called "V8" amps. Pretty cool stuff. They wanted to use my Mooneyes shot of Tudy Beltran's Chevy as a banner for the booth at the giant Musikmesse festival in Frankfurt Germany. Definitely the grandest enlargement of my work so far. I think it came out pretty cool.
