Ever since I saw this custom made motorbike of my friend Tapeta I knew I was going to take this shot. Today I am going to share how it was made. [Read more...]
One of the perks that I have as a photographer is the opportunity to shoot super cars every now and then. Sadly, I don’t have a big ass studio that I can fit a car into, and I need to improvise by lighting cars on whatever location I can get.

The following post is a guest post from James Evins- an automotive photographer from Houston.

The sense of motion achieved and the interesting angles that would be nearly impossible in a car to car or panning shot make automotive rigs an invaluable tool to automotive photographers.
