I took a picture of this little European Ford and its owner at the Cars at Corktown car meet. As you can probably tell from the license plate, it’s a ’59 model. Photo shot on my Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.

I had to stop and take a picture of this Porsche 911 for having the most awesome (and super ’80s!) decals. Car was shot at the Cars at Corktown car meet. Picture shot on a Mamiya C220 with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
I managed to snap this picture of the owner and his two kids piling into this beautiful little Porsche 356, preparing to leave the Cars at Corktown event. Photo shot on a Mamiya C220 with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
Sure, there were plenty of other brand new modern sports cars on the Detroit Auto Show floor, some even sitting in the Porsche booth, but this Singer Porsche was far more captivating than almost all the other cars present. I framed the shot such that the red swoop from the Dodge booth forms a little halo around the Singer. Picture shot on a Mamiya C220 TLR with an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
I went to the Zoo Brew with a bunch of coworkers and brought along my TLR for the event. This is my favorite image from the evening, and fitting for the occasion. Photo shot with a Mamiya C220 TLR and an 80mm f/2.8 on Kodak Portra 400.
This perfect Highland Green Mustang fastback was at the Cars at Corktown event, and I had to take a shot. I managed to catch the owner and his son as they were leaving the event, and got of picture of the two of them in the car too.

I got a chance to take a close-up look at the 50’s GM concept car, LeSabre. A GM employee, Jacob, served as the car’s handler and brought it out to Cars at Corktown, turning on the lights for photo opportunities and even opening the hood so we could peek inside. Jacob made this shot possible by turning on the car’s headlamps and parking lamps. Shot on a Mamiya C220 TLR with a 65mm f/3.5 on Kodak Portra 400.
This was the very first exposure I took with my Bronica ETR 645 film camera: a portrait of the always cool, quick driving friend Clint at a Champaign County Sports Car Club (CCSCC) autocross event in Rantoul. Shot with a Bronica ETR with a 150mm f/4 on Kodak Portra 400 film.
The sunglasses are so reflective that you can see me in them!
