Daily Driver



Tundra, originally uploaded by warrenshimquee.

If you still read this blog, thanks for sticking around. I’ll try to update a bit more. Check out these new photos I snapped of the Tundra, I tried some new techniques and tried to get creative a bit with the set. More on Flickr of course.

0-60 Magazine and onelugwheels.com

Shot this as a tech install recently for 0-60 Magazine and www.onelugwheels.com at www.uspmotorsports.com. This Porsche 996 was treated with a set of KW coilovers and the first set of one lug wheels in Florida! Along with this thing looking good, it performed well also, and the body was super clean and well kept. You can check out the printed version of this photo this month in 0-60 Magazine, if you’ve already seen it you are one step ahead of me, I think a Barnes and Noble run is in order today.

i’m still alive, I promise

I know I’ve been slacking with this stupid blog, but I have been staying busy, sort of. A few weeks back we went up to Tampa Bay for HIN Nightshift. While we were there we caught a glimpse of this bad mother trucker. This Lexus was rocking a high horsepower engine swap with a handful of one off parts. I’ve been eyeing this location for years but never had a chance to shoot anything there, this time I made an effort to find something worthy of this location. I think the Lexus did well.

For the Strobist, I shot everything in strips with two Canon 580EX’s. it was tough shooting on the gunmetal, it was difficult to get all the photos to have the same look, this shot was the best from the set, you’ll be lucky if you see any more.

Save The Drama For Your Mama!

Will Stern from 360 Forged wheels invited me to another shoot this week, had some time with this amazing looking BMW M5 which happens to be one of my favorite cars ever. This was technically the second photo session for the day for Will, after he nearly got pumped full of lead for trespassing at another location, but you can’t actually call yourself a photographer until something like that has happened to you. Although his story is particularly interesting. Anyway, I shot around while Will did all the big boy stuff, I was simply there to observe and to lend a helping hand where I could.

Here’s a link to Will’s photos on Flickr, he has some amazing work there, friend him, or whatever you do on flickr to see all his crap.

This below is one of my quick snap shots. Enjoy!

Orlando Weekend!

This past weekend Phil Luis and I took a quick road trip to Orlando for Battle of The Imports at the Orlando Speedway. While we were in town, we also took the opportunity to stop by some of the local stops up there and we even found time to shoot a car! On Saturday as soon as we reached Orlando we went straight to the newly relocated Reign store where we met the usual cast of characters who were still busy putting the finishing touches on the new spot. Their new spot is convenient because its just a few stores down from a Lollicup, which is another stop that we always try to make when we are in Orlando. While we were doing some light shopping at Reign, the guys invited us to stick around to check out a new product model photoshoot that was to take place after hours. We agreed, and stuck around to see the behind the scenes action. The two girls were cute, and worked well in front of the camera, operated by Mike Begonia who gave me a few tips on shooting with a backdrop which should make for interesting new projects here at the house.

The next morning Phil and I woke up and went straight to the track after an interesting morning at a safari themed McDonalds. The event was, well, eventful. Crashes, fast cars, fires, and seeing old friends pretty much summed up the time at the track.

After a long, hot, day at the track we made our way back to a location I found near Universal Studios to shoot Roger Nakada’s Amuse Widebody S2000! I’ll have more photos up later, check out the teaser and the other behind the scenes photos for now!

Bye Bye Panthers :(

Rachel and I went to the Bank Atlantic Center Saturday morning for the Panthers/Capitals practice, which is open to the public. This was the final Panthers practice of the season, as we missed the playoffs by ONE POINT!! I brought the markII with me to get some good shots, unfortunately they had the strobes at the arena on a different channel, so I couldn’t use my pocket wizard to get some extra light.

We got to the Bank a bit late and missed the Panthers, which was to my dismay. We caught the Caps with all their superstars on the ice, including Alex Ovechkin and friends. While I was shooting, Ovechkin shot a puck over the glass and Rachel pushed down some small children and a man in a wheel chair to get her hands on it! I’ll have some pics of that later.

We later went to the game in the evening where we stomped the Caps 7-4, Booth had a 5 point night and Emminger and Tarnasky scored their first goals of the season which puts down every regular playing Panther with a goal for the season. Best game we had been to all year and it only took them 82 tries. Looks like we will be losing some of the guys to free agency, including Jay Bouwmeester.
