The tall blond girl on the left saved my life that day. When I was lost around Long Beach, a little Redbull mini car pulled up, and then this sunny and beautiful blond girl jumped out and asked me if I want a soda. I asked for the direction to the Redbull Champion Drift car show. She told me where to find the tricky parking spot and shuttle. Without her, there will be no gorgeous pictures of these car show model beauties, and I would have gone home totally frustrated...
They are just looking good as the attendees of the show.
Ashley is just amazing! Her long legs and gorgeous hair, slim body and sunny personality, are just a perfect dream come true! She stole 1/3 of all my pictures shot during this show that day. She's just incredible!! Her "Import Tuner interview" shows how she is so nice to be with and easy to get along. Hats off to her and love to see more of her!!
I am planning an Ashley blitz that will show more of her later in the blog. Stay tuned!
She does not look too happy in this series...
But he is! :-)
Since Feb is usually a slow month for car shows, here are some of the wonderful work with the RedBull Champion Drift show models, at Long Beach, California, last year, 2008 (thank goodness it's done and gone...)
Click this picture and you can feel the scale and surrealistic scenary at the formula drift world.
They are the first pair of models that I met at the event. They were so friendly and welcoming the posing opportunity. It's a good welcome moment when I arrived there.
I think the umbrellas have that diffusing light effects. They naturally make the models look wonderful!
The backdrop just could not be better than this one!
@ My tip: Politely keep asking for shooting pictures of beautiful models.
I was listening to a podcast of "Candid Frame" hosted by Ibarionex R. Perello, which is a style of expert interviews. I found many many great stories and tips from that podcast series. I highly recommend everybody to subscribe to this podcast and support them. It's a gem in the iTune store, especially among other photography themed podcasts.
One expert that they featured is Lou Lesko, He is a fashion photographer and has been in the industry for more than 20 years. He is extremely experienced in the fashion photography industry, and also very elquent. In his web site, he wrote several articles, Lou Lesko's Articles and they are truly a necessary read for any fashion-related photographers and wannabe models. His witty writing style is the icing on the cake of his very insightful analysis of the industry. It's very fascinating to read! Highly recommended! Take a break and read some of his articles. You will love them!
