Although the word “Street” is in the title of my blog I don’t often have the opportunity to talk about one of my passions…cars.
About a month ago I was approached by Chevrolet to take some pictures. The pictures were to be used for a new online campaign called, “Road We’re On”.
I was excited for a couple of reasons. First, I love taking pictures and it’s a big hobby of mine. If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram you’ll quickly discover I’m not afraid to post a shot or two. The second reason I was stoked was that I was able to combine my passion of photography with cars. It also doesn’t hurt that I happen to live along some of the most beautiful coastline in the Country.
I was all stoked for the photo shoot! I decided I’d use my iPhone 4s for all the shots. I love shooting with my DSLR but over the last several months have exclusively been using the iPhone and been very happy with the shots. So, I thought it’d be an interesting challenge to combine iPhone + car + scenery. I had everything in place except for the car!
While Chevrolet did reach out to me, I didn’t have immediate access to one. I had recalled a close friend of mine telling me he had a red Corvette that he rarely drives. After a quick call to my friend I found myself behind the wheel of his beautiful 2000 Corvette. I took it out for a couple of hours driving around the Monterey Peninsula. I caught shots from a local winery, a farm, and then down the coast along Highway 1.
Please check out the 3 links below which will take you to the 3 sets of shots I have. Feel free to leave any comments on their site and let me know what you think!
