This weekend I had my second photo shoot with Motor Trend. While I don't mean to devalue myself it was a string of chance happenings that lead to this. I have worked hard at photography for over 6 years trying to make the best of every chance I was given, with that just like anything you also need some luck. My luck came from Twitter and a very nice PR rep from Hyundai. I have always been a firm believer that if you want something you have to ask because you never know what could happen, so when I say Hyundai post that they were doing a media drive in Ann Arbor (where I live) I knew that I needed to at least see if there was a way that my site could be excess.
After sending in the information and talking with the Twitter persona almost a month past before I heard back, and it was one of the best emails I have received because they were asking me to join the drive, someone took a chance on me and I am very grateful. After showing them my photos they were nice enough to pass along my name to people they knew at magazines. One of which was Motor Trend!
My first shoot for them was a Comparison between the Cadillac SRX and the Lexus RX 350. The article and some photos have been posted on their website, on top of that it will also be printed in Truck Trend. I can still not believe that after working very hard and putting myself out there for years trying to get more work this all seems to happen overnight. There is no guaranty of more work but know that I will at least make it in two times is enough to make me smile and feel like my hard work is being appreciated. The article is posted in the link at the end of the post. I hope you enjoy the photos from that gray day in MI.
