Random Beat: Ying and Yang


Here’s a shoot I did a while back featuring the first two Benz I have ever shot. Both of them belong to the same owner who couldn’t decide which Benz or color he liked better. So he bought both. And to top them both off he got HRE wheels for them at almost the same ride heights. No matter which car he chose, it would always be the right choice for him. Must be nice! Read More

Autocon 2012

Autocon_2012_Car_Show (1)

Those of you who have been in the car scene long enough may remember when Hot Import Nights and Nopi first had a very underground and grassroots feel to it. Many will attest to the fact that those days are gone and many car shows have tried to reproduce events of that sort of caliber, but have failed. Even HIN has tried to make a comeback in the past couple of years, but in my opinion, has not been able to recapture that raw essence of a car show. The essence I’m referring to is very simple actually, a car show (for the most part) just for the cars. Although car shows are not underground anymore, there are still quality shows out there. Nisei Showoff Car Show is one of the better quality car shows that still exists and if I were to say that a fledgling Autocon car show is comparable to a Nisei Showoff Car Show, I would quite frankly be lying. However, I can say that Autocon has been able to capture some of that raw essence that has been lost throughout the years with car shows becoming more mainstream. Read More

Random Beat: BMW 1M Nightfall

bmw-1m-hre-wheels (2)

Here are a coupe photos from a recent shot I did at night in down town, which isn’t the friendliest place after dark. BMW 1M’s don’t come in red so the owner of this car had his car wrapped. Aside from all the carbon fiber, the HRE wheels are off of a M3 coupe which means crazy offset for such a small car. Read More

It’s been a while since I’ve put up some actual coverage or even an actual post on Canibeat so I must first apologize for my lack of activity. I’ve recently had a chance to work with many companies I used to only dream of working with, so bare with me and when I am allowed to release them, you will be able to see them on Canibeat. Anyway, though I have a much more busy schedule nowadays, I decided to take a break from it all and head over to the Eibach Springs Honda Meet today. Read More

ferrari 458 italia (2)

I recently had a chance to shoot this amazing beast of a super car, and let’s just say, “super car” is an understatement. The sounds that this engine makes is orgasmic and exhilarating. I cherished every moment of my time with it. More photos after the jump! Read More

Random Beat: 2012 BMW 3-Series F30


Since Bimmerfest is going on today we thought it would be nice to release some BMW related features. If you haven’t read our latest feature on Robert Langelier’s E30, then you should. I also wanted to share with you all my current project that my girlfriend and I are building together. It’s a new BMW 328i thats inline 4 and turbocharged. It’s a more practical car, but that’s not stoping us from modifying it. More will come when the car has a lot more things done to it. Until then enjoy. Read More
