Lea Anne P is an amazing + amazing model! She appeared in countless magazines, calendars, features, as well as modeling and promo work. However, behind her chic and cool and gorgeous look, a super charged passion for racing as well as plethora (yes, we learned the word from an audio book) of car knowledge that will make anybody truly impressed and sometimes speechless, as we experienced during our interview. :-)
We did the feature shoot at a local autosport shop called "bbi autosport" (http://www.bbiautosport.com). And this is one very cool shop. The people there were super nice, which made the shoot like a sweet dream, maybe even at the 2nd layer in the inception term... :-)
Here is the insightful interview with Lea Anne, and the wonderful photos from the shoot:
