2013 Ford Explorer

I know its not a nifty import or a race car, but my father recently picked up a new Ford Explorer, so I decided to do a little brochure style photo shoot.

It’s been a while since I was up close and personal to a Ford truck, but the new Explorer is quite the solid SUV. Seriously, forget the old myth of import having better quality than domestic,  the build quality is truly top notch, and the interior is great for the price point.

2012 Petit Lemans

Collaborating with SHFTPNT!  I got a media pass this year to cover the 2012 Petit Lemans at Road Atlanta.  It was truly a  blast! Also seeing the Nissan Delta Wing up close in the paddock was remarkable, that car is truly amazing, and I really hope it changes the way racing cars are done.

It was also the first time shooting motorsports with my d800 and being full frame at the track.  Fortunately I rented a Nikkor 300mm lens, and all I can say is WOW! That lens is truly amazing, a bit of a heft to it, but it was tack sharp and had wonderful bokeh. Now lets see a few pics….
