A summer in review…

So I noticed this morning I was shuffling around looking for my hoodie to wear to work. Right then I thought, “I miss you already summer, but I can’t wait for winter” and I got the idea to write this post. This summer was amazing. I met a lot of great people and went to a lot of wild events!

Well here was my summer in review. It pretty much started with a big bang. I attended the New Jersey Motorsports Park to shoot for the Redline Time Attack event. Here is where I was issued my first media pass. It was an amazing experience.

Shortly after this in June Formula Drift event was scheduled at Wall Speedway also in NJ, therefore I was scheduled to be there. Even though I wasn’t able to get a media pass I was able to get some great pictures from the stands.

Due to a lot of my friends being heavily involved in the drifting scene I had attended more events than usual. I will say these guys def know how to have a good time! So I went to ECB (east coast bash) at Englishtown‘s Raceway Park drift course. It was a blast! I got an opportunity to hang on the track with some of the big guys in the drift world like,
Mad Mike Whiddett

Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Chris Forsberg

Ryan Tuerck

Aside from hangin with the big guys I had the chance to sit in on a crazy photo shoot of about 30 cars set up by the Lower Class crew where I took this quick snapshot, just to show you the caliper of cars that we there.

Soon there after my car blew up…I got real pissed, my precious 06 Subaru STI. Ok here’s a pic of that, but enough of this.

To get my mind off my car me and the fiancé decided to spend the weekend at the Shorehouse in North Wildwood. Here is the last picture that came out of my 40D, as it pretty much blew up on me and fried itself, luckily not the card.

Well as if my luck couldn’t get worse from my car blowing its motor my camera had to blow. Well that FORCED me to buy a Canon 5D MKll. Yes, forced me. From here I did some sweet shoots of friends cars.

Matt – RSX-S DC5

Greg – Turbo’d S2000

Justin’s Audi TT

This pretty much wrapped up my summer. So now that I’ve overloaded this post with pictures and you’ve seen SOME of what my summer has been like, how about you? Whats your summer been like? Good I hope. Well for now, peace out summer, it was good seeing you, I’ll be seeing you again next year!


Formula Drift @ Wall Stadium

So on Saturday I took a trip down to Wall Stadium with my StunnrStatus boys. Most of they’re cars were in the Hella Flush show. This event was insane. All of the drivers were just hanging out being really social and just enjoying everyones company. Daijiro Yoshihara ended up stealing the event by taking a close 1st place and not far behind was Vaughn Gittin Jr. The crowd that this event attracted was massive. I ended up taking somewhere around 1,800 pictures!! Obviously I cant post them all but for now I have a handful of pics posted. Keep on the lookout i’ll be making a second post with more picutres and also check my flickr for more picture updates within the next couple of days as well.


Philadelphia Auto Show

Well this is my first blog, and my first post. Hopefully over the next couple weeks I will get familiar with the whole concept of posting and covering certain events. This event was shot on Feb. 7th and I figured it would be a great start for my first post. I recently attended the Annual Philadelphia Auto Show in the Philly Convention Center on Feb. 7th. At this show I had the oppertunity to meet a great deal of people and see many of different new styles of modifying cars. This years show ment a lot to me and a group of my friends. We started a blog called www.stunnrstatus.com its all about urban streetlife mixing with the import car scene, flushness, newest fashion styles, and fads. Well a car that means a great deal to us (nissan s15 silvia RHD)was entered and won a contest to be featured in the DUBZ section of the auto show. To check out a couple photos from a photo shoot of this car check out my flickr account set.

Heres a couple of pictures from the event. To check out more visit the Philly Auto Show set in my Flickr
