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 […]
It was a gorgeous night out for the last 403 Honda/Beyond.ca at Chinook, and that meant a really awesome turnout, the best turnout we’ve seen all season. Hopefully the meets stay as busy as they have been, if not busier! Here’s a few of the many shots I took. To see the rest, check out the set on our Flickr stream: HERE And for my buddy Aldo, I know where you hide your snacks now… in your bumper. Make sure to come on down and hang out the next meet at Chinook on May 1st, 2013.
With stance and wheel fitment being the biggest craze in the car scene right now, coming across cars built with performance being the main focus is pretty hard to come by these days. This is rightfully so, as cars with pretty impressive power can be bought from a car dealership leaving the owner with nothing left to modify except the suspension and wheels if he/she wishes to do so. No matter what people do to their own vehicles, modding them can turn into quite the addiction. In Duncan Yu’s case with his 1995 Honda Civic DX, power and speed were […]
With the exception of the 20cm of snow we got today, it seems as though the coming of the spring/summer season is imminent. And with that brings the return of the 403 Honda/Beyond.ca weekly meets. Here are a few pictures from the first meet of 2011 (and a preview/debut of a few people’s cars summer mode). Be sure to show up when you can to keep the meets busy and fun and to check out some rides. These meets happen every Wednesday evening at Chinook Centre in the rear upper parkade.
Since joining the illmotion team, there are a few cars that I have had in mind that I wanted to feature when my photo taking skills got good enough. Well, my skills are still not good enough in my mind, but here is one of the cars on my list. Andrew is a Volkswagen guy that I appreciate. I’ve met a bunch of VW heads in my life that pretty much proclaim that VW is the only way to roll, and all other cars suck. Andrew isn’t like that. In the short time I’ve known him, I’ve come to see […]
I’ve been hearing about this Integra for a few months now but it’s just been hectic around here that I’ve never got the chance to shoot it until last night. At first I was expecting something that I’ve seen around the city before. Once I got talking to Alex (the owner) – he had told me that the car has barely been out and he just happened to rack up just a little over 1000km’s on the car. That’s when I started to get excited to see it. When he drove up, I realized why guys like Jackie and Pat […]
Last week I had the chance to drive and shoot, my good friend Dominic’s, 2002 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8t. It was definitely something else driving this car. Hearing the sound of the turbo blow off valve put an immediate smile on face. At one point in the drive, I started laughing like a little school girl due to all the fun I was having. Now here’s the kicker, I didn’t break 60km/h. You’ll soon find out that his car hasn’t been heavily modified. The reasoning behind that is Dominic wanted to build a clean and reliable car. Right off the bat, […]
With the lack of nice weather, I think it’s only appropriate to post up cars where the weather isn’t shitty. BUT, if the weather keeps up like this.. it just means we’re only getting closer to slapping on all those parts we’ve gathered over the winter and start cruising again. It’s only a matter of time. We’ll get this rolling in no time! In the meantime, peep this Turbocharged Mugen RSX. Perfection.
