On Monday, September 2nd 2013, Driftwest and the Everlasting Drift Authority hosted Round 4.5 of their Drifting event at Stratotech Park in Edmonton, Alberta. What made this drift event so special was the fact that it was called “Drift For The Kids”, in support of The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. It was definitely all about the kids on this memorable day as Celebrity Children Judges decided on the winner of the event, as well as judge the winners of the cars who entered the Battle Project “Show N Shine”. There were also other activities for the kids during this event […]
Saturday July 20th marked approximately 5 years since my last drift event (seriously; circa 2008, DMCC days). I can’t really offer a good reason why, other than life happened. I got busy with work and eventually kind of fell out of love with photography for awhile, putting me on a bit of a hiatus over the last couple years as a photographer…but after Saturday’s event, I’m not quite sure how I managed to stay away. Being out at Stratotech brought a rush of good vibes and great memories. From seeing friends I don’t see nearly enough, to admiring the evolution […]
Driven with a purpose. The car scene certainly has a sort of hilarity to it. If we sit back and think about it, we are all guilty of buying what is considered “baller parts” and we floss the shit out of them to our peers in the community and even our friends, but for what? To simply hard park and have our cars look good on our driveways, inside our garages, and sit pretty the local car meet or even at the grocery store? Sure, there are many of us who have taken our cars to the track and have […]
Big thanks to Thomas Kucy for putting this video of the Spec-D event on May 17th. It’s been a while since then, but for those who haven’t seen it, check it out. Our homies do their thing and Thomas does a great job capturing it all.
My good friend Matt Lomazoff recently revamped his DD(daily drifter,not daily driver). I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to shoot his car at one of my favorite secrete locations… Matt’s car isn’t your typical hella flush, trailer-ed, pristine show car. The car was built to drift and that’s exactly what Matt does with it everyday, and has the battle scars to show! Below is some video of Matt doing what he does, in such close quarters!
Drift Battle! But not the normal kind… this one is Bike vs. Car. An LS V8 powered RX-7 against a stretched Kawasaki ZX10!
Drift Posse’s Pat Cyr of Toronto, Ontario looks like he had a pretty good year competing in several 2010 drift events held by DMCC, Formula D and XDC. Competing in a F20C Turbo powered AE86 be sure to peep some awesome footage of this drift machine in action courtesy of Cyrious Productions.

I got a chance to attend Spec D’s ‘Sunday Funday’ on October 3rd. Although the clouds were covering the sun, it was still fairly warm out, and a great time was had by all. I believe it was Spec D’s last event of the year considering the snow can descend upon us at any time. Special thanks goes out to Spec D for organizing the event, and letting us in to get coverage on the event. Get out and support these guys next year by attending their events, they do not disappoint.

So yesterday evening was my first time attending the Drift Practices that is held every other Wednesday down at Race City. You guys might remember Chad Gibson’s coverage of some of the drifting from a few weeks back. I thought it’d be a good idea to head down there and see what it was all about. Enough of the babble.. I got quite a few pics. I apologize in advance to anybody who was out last night that didn’t get a shot. I did have shots of everybody, but some just didn’t turn out. I’ll get you guys next time. […]
