The Monterey Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places in California and home to the Weathertech Laguna Seca race track, which is a great place to watch a race. If you enjoy taking pictures of race cars, access at this stunning track is perfect. You can walk all around and in some places get fairly close, unfettered views of the action. And the famous Corkscrew is just a stunning place to experience auto racing.
The GTD class was won by Alvaro Parente and Katherine Legge bringing her closer to a potential Championship this season.

Photographing cars has always been one of my favorite things to do outside of actually driving them, and classics are the best kinds of cars in my mind. I just love their curves and all the chrome, I mean if Bling is your thing, the makers of these cars did it over the top and yet, with some elegant style.
I think these two images in black and white are a testament to the timeless beauty of these machines. I hope you agree.
The car show that takes over the main street in Culver City every year is one of my favorites. There are usually a selection of George Barris creations, some cool music and of course, some great cars. Here are a couple of images I made this weekend.
Monterey Auto Week has got to be one of the finest collections of rolling art on the planet and the pinnacle of the entire week is the Concours d’Elegance where 175 of the finest collector cars in the world roll onto the legendary 18th fairway at Pebble Beach.
I was there this past week to shoot some 3D car footage with the guys from 21st Century 3D, but managed to get a few stills of my own during a frantic week of chasing cars all over the peninsula. Tweet This!
