Welcome to Group! Introduce Yourself :)

Hey everyone,

I have been a long time follower/reader of FStoppers and have been in love with the new community. Personally, my passion for photography stems from a deep, unhealthy for my wallet/bank account, passion for the automotive world so I thought I would create this group as a place for all of you who share that passion to post...


One of my recent shots of a restored BMW M1. Shot with natural light using the Nikon D750 and an 85mm f1.8

New to the group

I'm new to the group but have watched Fstoppers for a while. I like to light paint most if not all of my cars. I'm based out of San Diego and am interested in growing and evolving my automotive photography.

Porsche 911 Empty Warehouse

When I first started using strobes in my work flow, I quickly added multiple strobes to my gear list. Recently I've been loving the results more with using one strobe, a double diffused strip softbox, and layering them up in photoshop. I'm now seriously considering making my flash kit a lot smaller!

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition

Had the opportunity to shoot 1 of 50 TAG Heuer Editions of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera! You'd struggle to find a bad angle on this thing - it really was such a photogenic car!

Shot with a Nikon D800 and a 17-35mm 2.8 using available light and bracketed exposures.

Infiniti Q50

Recently upgraded my ride and couldn't more excited to do more modifications to it! Chrome delete, rims, and a muffler delete are next. Currently stock with tints and smoked tail lights

Light Painting black for the first time.

Did this light painting on a ZL1 over the weekend. First time light painting a black car. Overall pleased with the results but def a lot to learn with black. Left the reflections on the edge of the car to show off the lines a little bit better but was having a hard time with the door picking up light. Fell like I lost a lot of detail there....

Ford Fiesta WRC, 2019 Monte-Carlo

Went to my first WRC rally on Friday and it was amazing! We managed to find a pretty much empty hairpin in SS5/8 and were able to shoot from the roadside, a couple meters away from the cars (which was relatively safe given the layout). This shot of Elfyn Evans' Fiesta was taken with a Canon 1300D at F7, 800ISO and a shutter speed of 1/80. I...

Austin Healey 100M - Car fine art

Car fine art shot using the FDL Technique (focuses diffused lighting). I'm still practicing this technique. I am surprised every time I put the exposures together. You can only imagine the outcome of the shot when you are shooting it. This keeps it really interesting.

Gulf Guntherwerks

During Goldrush Rally in 2018 this Guntherwerks Porsche stopped by the shop for the night. Considering how striking it was I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a couple photos of it. This is the first image of the set that night.
