Of course the first place I’ll send you for your Christmas shopping is to my site. You can buy Calendars (which all of the profits go to charity), or books featuring shows that I’ve shot over the last couple of years. New Car Show Pics Books are on the way soon, each one is hand numbered and limited edition, a great keepsake of each show.
After over 1200 miles round trip I’m home. Took over 450 shots but only using about 425 of them. The Hot Rod Revolution was a killer show, from the town to the venue to the amazing rides that showed up, just a great time all around!
So as I edit and upload the shots I’m listening to a little Social Distortion. Yeah that’s an amazon link, yes I get paid if you buy something after clicking on that, it costs me money to go to these shows and shoot these pictures to show you all for free (over $300 this trip plus 18+ hours on the road), so help me out by buying something!
The shots will be going up all night as they are huge but they are looking much better than the rough edits from the laptop. Check the shots out here.
If you like the kind of cars that this show featured, you should check out The Jalopy Journal, the owner of the site is the show promoter and this show was what the site is all about. Very cool rides built the traditional way.
Probably the coolest part of the day for me was looking behind me and seeing Jimmie Vaughan pulling in! That’s one way to make a cool show even cooler.
The first batch of the 450 total that were taken are up now, and they are roughly edited, but at least it’s a start!
The rest of the rough edits should go up tonight/tomorrow morning. The final edits will be up this week. All shots are available for purchase as download or print, just click on the slideshow to go to the Smugmug page.
Left my garage at 6:15pm and checked into my hotel at 3:35am. It’s foggy in Austin but should burn off soon. I imagine that the view from my room is more impressive when the pool is filled with beauties and the sun is hot and high in the sky.
The show starts in 5 minutes so it’s time to grub and hit the streets. Here’s a map to where we are in case you’re wondering where in Austin there would be such a cool show.
I’ll post some phone pics up here today from the show, but the real camera shots will have to wait until I get home.
