BMW M1: A legend of the 80’s

Over the past few years I’ve had the pleasure to shoot for prestigious automotive auctioneers such as RM Auctions, and Bonhams (thanks to my talented motorsport photographer friend Jamey Price). They specialize in fine automobiles, with cars rarely dropping below the $100,000 mark. At that point, it’s a bit insulting to call them just cars. Rather, I prefer the term “art.” Yes, I’m adding some cheese to this blog post.

Featured: Advanced Photoshop #98

Whenever Advanced Photoshop magazine comes knocking on my email box, I never hesitate to adhere to their requests. Even though the mag costs $15 USD an issue, I regard it as one of the best cutting edge Photoshop resources out there. This time I was requested to submit a tutorial on matching lighting throughout a composited image. After digging through my past work, I decided my image of Roxie in the desert was a good fit. The final image contains 6 individual elements combined together to make a unified composition. Click to read the .pdf of the feature here.

Featured: Advanced Photoshop magazine

I had to pinch myself till I bled. Is Adam Smith, Senior Staff Writer for Advanced Photoshop magazine emailing me for a feature in their magazine?!? I instantly google’d his name and email address to verify if this was real, and sure enough it was! Let me try to put this in perspective… This is THE magazine I genuinely gladly pay $15 to take home and read. Oversized pages, spot-uv covers, high quality paper stock.. so nice I’ve never thrown away a single issue. Dare I say the only magazine I buy? (American publishers can learn a thing or two from Imagine Publishing.)

Down to Earth – Olly Howe

Introducing Olly Howe. Easily one of the best designers I have ever come across. And not to stroke my ego too much, but that is a huge compliment. So you can imagine my thoughts when Olly emailed me asking to collaborate with one of my latest photoshoots. Very very very very humbling.
