When William Blanco contacted me about a calendar project he had in mind I found it pretty awesome. Thats exactly what the east coast needs but when he told me he has chosen me to join a dozen other great pthotographers for the project I was thrown back. It was to me an honor to work along side or even be considered. Photographers from Sntrl, Canibeat and other locals who have been putting out amazing car photography were carefully selected I mean... these are some photographers I learned from and that I too look up to. We all started working on the cars that were chosen for us. I was chosen for the month of October and was blessed to shoot Billy Riaz Orange G37 aka Vitamin C. Sitting on an air suspension, a set of Black plasti-dipped Vossen wheels, a sick pair of costume headlights and a fresh coat of paint done by WDUltimate this car was screaming for a photoshoot! I picked a remote location near the Petrolwerks shop in long island in the back lot strip and did a night shot of this car to bring out the October/Holloween type feel of the month. If you look closely at the image you may see the shadows of dead souls approaching from the rear. Although this is not the photo chosen for the calendar (a better photo ) we wanted to show you what went down and this awesome slammed G. Stay tuned as we keep you posted on the release of the calendar. I would like to thank Billy, Willaim , Alex and Moe for all the help they gave me during this shoot.

After the sad news that one of our very own car enthusiasts Paul Walker and the accident that led to his death at his Reach Out World Wide charity event fellow car enthusaists around the world have come together and held meets to honor our fallen icon. The Uhhdope team and 631 coating decided to open their doors and have a Fast and Furious movie marathon while at the same time have some of the locals come down and bring their cars. I only found it fitting to bring some tuna no crust sandwiches to the meet. Great people cool cars , food and movies playing on the projector made for an awesome time and remembrance. Here is a picture of the newly wrapped aventador that came into the meet with fast and furious movie song blasting. From all of us we say thank you Paul Walker aka Brian O'conner for what you have given to all of us car junkies, R.I.P Paul... you have earned your respect.

The 3rd Annual Toys for tots event comes again to give tons of toys to those kids who are less fortunate. Many tuners and car enthusiasts came together and gathered as many toys and goodies they can pack into their sportscars. This was my first time at one of these it was a bit cold but of course that didn't stop any of us from coming out. Groups met in many different areas before arriving here at the Ferrari/Masarati of long island where we all fill 3 to 4 trucks full of toys from back to front. Best of all we got to meet and greet with our favorite friends and car celebs like this amazing Bugatti brought down to us by Benjiman Chen which we don't see this car everyday (well I don't anyway) so it was a pleasure to see it out. alongside Scandal the new Team Salamone Aventador. There so many sick amazing cars there that day. This event I heard was one of the biggest so far and we expect next year to be even bigger. Toys for Tots will continue to grow with the help of our fellow car enthusiasts way to go guys!

Every now and then we see awesome sportscars on the road that we admire and wish to own but very few times do you expect to visit a comic convention and bump into the brand new C7 Corvette stingray just around the Bandai booth with full of gundam action figures but then again these types of car have been popping up and taking over. The New York Comic Con In Jacob Javits Center comes again during the october season which I believe is the best part since Halloween is soon approaching. We experienced amazing costumes and booths , shows ,cars, and models, celebraties (Can't believe I shook Hacksaw Jim Duggans hand) and much more. If you are a Comic ,Anime or movie fan the NYCC is for you.
Be sure to visit our gallery section for more.

Congrats to my friend Mathew Wolyski and everyone at PHENOmenal Vinyl for all of their hard work and acheivements. Phenomenal Vinyl Located at 3540 Lawson Blvd, Oceanside, NY 11572 just had their grand opening of their new shop this September and had a great turn out. Many of the costumers were very proud to return and show off the great work they have done. Matt has struggled from working from home to on the street from renting spots at Petrolwerks and even HighEnd to finally now having their very own place they can call home. Good people like Matt deserve the good things in life they are honest and hard working and it's awesome to see him growing and succeeding everyday. Congrats to him and his team. Here is a shot of one of the cars being worked on and the process it takes to make sure the vinyl look amazing in every coner. Parts are removed to ensure proper installation. PHENOmenal lives up to its name good job guys!!!
