I’ve been following Canibeat for some time now, so when the girls told me about this project and asked me to shoot I was all about it. Cherry, Lauren and I had been trying to plan a shoot but with me being in Chicago and them being 3hrs away the logistics didn’t always work out as a lot of my shooting is done last minute. My take on the project was that Canibeat wanted some snaps of these lovely ladies wearing their swag. So I figured I’d find a location and a prop car and we’d rock it out. The morning of the shoot our preferred (indoor) location fell through, but the girls were on their way and my prop car was good to go – I’ll take 2/3 any day.
This week we bring you a shot of Eric Penelow’s Boston Green e36 at First Class Fitment 2011. Just when we thought Eric’s car couldn’t get any better on the OZ Futura’s he switched it up and came out with a rare set of Cromodora splits in 2011. Eric is one of the founders of SoGood, and he is also one of the videographers responsible for this video from First Class Fitment video so check it out if you haven’t already!

This is a film reel of my year 2011. Not Made for publicity, numbers, or fame. Done to show the path and journey of my year.”

As the year ends, another season of shows will end with it. To close out 2011, we present our Autocon coverage for you. The event, along with the turn out, was much larger than last year. We were excited to use that opportunity to booth for the first time on the West Coast. Organized as a charity event, the show was a great experience for us, and we enjoyed meeting everyone. We’d like to thank the Royal Origin guys for coming out to show at our booth with their quality cars and hilarious entertainment throughout the day. Four different photographers covered Autocon for us just to make sure we didn’t miss anything. Enjoy, and we hope to see you next year! Read More
Another year down for Import Alliance fall meet. The meet keeps getting bigger and bigger. The size of the fall meet has gotten bigger than the first summer meets that were held at the Titans stadium. If you are a car enthusiast and have been living under a rock for the past couple years and haven’t come to any of the meets plan on coming to the spring,summer, and fall meet next year. At this meet there is something for everyone. I had a blast and will continue to go. Enjoy the photos guys!
A short but quality video showcasing some of our friends cars from the group Level One out of Toronto, Canada. We had the pleasure of meeting a few of the guys when they made the trip down to New Jersey earlier this year for Honda Day, and we hope to make it up to Toronto for an event or two next year!
This isn’t the entire crew but it gives you an idea of the quality and variety these guys represent.
“We aren’t a car club… we’re a family…”
Back in 2009 when Canibeat.com was officially born, it was heavily located in the East Coast. Slowly over time though, our staff has grown nationwide and now includes two very skilled photographers out of California – John Zhang and Marcus Cooke. Not only do these guys have a tremendous amount of talent behind a camera but they also have two daily-drivers with some serious style or as John would put it some “Cali Swag”.
From dusk till dawn Kenny captured the very first car at the airport to the very last and nearly everything in between. Between the soundtrack and the time lapse segments, we think Kenny did an amazing job of capturing the cars, the people, and the overall feel of First Class Fitment 2011!
