GoPro goes when I can’t go. Two reasons for that here… the P-63 is a one seat airplane, and passengers are not allowed in the races.
This is a rare sight indeed! The Palm Springs Air Museum P-63 Kingcobra “Pretty Polly” flying the pylons at the Reno Air Races 2018. Turn on your sound! When our P-63 is in the air you can be sure it is likely the only P-63 in the air in the world.
Looking a little beat up now. But it has the distinction of flying the finals of the Reno Air Races 2017, Unlimited Class, in the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny”. Back on my wrist it has done a lot of flying ever since. But for that race it was on the wrist of pilot Tom Nightingale who borrowed it from me.
A video montage that I created for a gallery show I did with the Michael Weems Collection Gallery creating a separate gallery called “Auto Erotica” in Palm Springs. The entire gallery was works of my photography and special auto body pieces by Michael Weems.
We even had built a seedy motel room in the gallery. Kind of road trip auto related Route 66 with erotic twists. Stacks of old televisions played another video montage of my creation. This video actually played through a peep hole in the blacked out front window of the gallery 24 hour per day 7 days per week. It was great fun!
Continuing my theme of shooting with instant cameras. Here is a series I shot during our photo shoot where I brought out an old folding Polaroid SX-70. Again I love the look of instant photos and especially here, the somewhat mid 1960’s film color palette. With model Jamie Lovelle.
I have had so much high end camera equipment and lighting on photo shoots that the same amount of money could have bought a Ferrari. And then right in middle of it I bring out an instant camera of one kind or another. Various model Polaroids or Fujifilm Instax. I have shot entire features on Instant Film as well as photos that became art pieces, mounted, matted and framed. I love the look.
Here is one from a series with model Aristodeme. Shot with a Polaroid “Land” camera and peel apart film from Fujifilm. Thanks!
