While car races and commercials are fun and exhilarating, one of the things I most love to shoot are actually car shows and meets such as the popular Cars and Coffee events. It’s automotive photography at its most basic form. Not everyone can teleport themselves across the world to shoot exclusive events and races, but anyone can roll up to a car show and snap photos.

In truth, we all want to travel to exotic locations, and most of us, myself included, have never taken the time to see what is in our own backyards. And guess what, the more I looked the more I saw…nesting robins, bluebirds feeding young, white squirrels on the feeder, butterflies, and some very cool patterns on plant leaves.

My early years as a professional photographer involved doing a lot of assignment work that required a documentary approach to photographing landscapes. Back then I was trying to produce straightforward, descriptive views of outdoor environments because the end uses of the commissioned photographs necessitated that style of photography. These days, however, my work features a more creative approach.
