Random Beat: Performance BMW


I shot this car two weeks before Wekfest San Francisco this year and pulled an all-nighter to finish editing this shoot before I drove up to norcal. The feature was shot for the May 2012 issue of Performance BMW magazine. Here are a couple photos from the shoot. Please support print and get your copy of the feature. It’s out now. And before anyone says anything, the car needs the wing. It’s tracked. Read More

Random Beat: Audi R8 Down Town


I’ve been busy shooting recently which can explain my lack of posts here on Canibeat. However, since I had some down time, I decided to post this beautiful Audi R8 that I shot a while back in Los Angeles for iForged wheels. How can you deny relatively cheap super car that is sitting on some nice concave wheels? You be the judge. Read More

A Solid Start: Jason Morabito’s Daily Driven S4

Audi S4

Hindsight is always 20/20 and at some point all of us have probably looked back at a decision we have made or a part we have purchased for a current or past car and wondered “What was I thinking?” We live, we learn, and life goes on… While some of us continue to learn by trial and error, others seem to have a vision. After taking ques from from past and present builds, countless hours of research, and sifting through photos they know exactly what they want and what they have to do to achieve the end result before they even start wrenchin’. Or in Jason Marabito’s case, long before he even purchased his new daily driver!

Random Beat: The Baby BMW


I recently repaired my front lip and somehow chanced upon a pretty cool location to shoot cars. While I was waiting for my client to come for his photo shoot, I decided to take a few snaps of my own car. It’s a BMW 135i. I have a few more mods coming in and it’ll be done since I have a new project car coming in next month. Leave a comment and let us know what you think. Read More

This week we bring you some crisp new wallpapers from the other side of the globe! PJ Moran is a talented young photographer based in Australia that I stumbled across in my daily browsing and he was excited to share these photos of two s2000’s he recently shot.

Tom Byrne’s Simple Honda S2000 (Video)

For me and my experience, I’ve always been more of a euro automotive guy. It’s that combination of engineering and class that just makes that side of the scene usually more appealing. It’s a mind set that simplicity can go a long way, and you don’t need a mass amount of body work and chrome dipped parts to make a car stand out. Tom Byrne I can safely say, understands this concept of simplicity.

When Tom told me he first bought an S2000 I had mixed feelings. After drifting the stock car out of a chic-fil-a however, my mixed feelings had dispersed. I was hooked. Laughing at the Vtec kick, we started to discuss plans for the new Honda in his life. Me of course concerned he would be going fast and the furious rice status on us. Luckily, that was not the case at all. With simplicity in mind, and months of dedication and work on polishing wheels and saving for hard tops and engine work, I proudly present Tom’s Honda S2000 Video.

LTBMW Car Meet 3/10/12


Every time there’s a LTBMW car meet, it’s pretty much a known fact that it will be big. If you are familiar with Bimmerfest then think of a LTBMW meets just as you would a mini Bimmerfest with plenty of fine BMWs. There were even cars from Norcal and Arizona that made the journey out just for the meet. This time the meet evolved a little and turned out to be similar to a car show. Mackin, HRE Wheels, KW Suspensions, Redbull, Attic clothing, and a few others came out with booths and show cars. I’ve been to every LTBMW meet and I can truly say that if you want a good taste of Socal’s BMW scene, then you should attend one and experience it for yourself. Read More
