Lateral Drift Productions Pro-Am Championship 2013 Round 4 Pictures

Lateral-Drift-Productions-Championship-Round-4-October-2013-Aseana-City-Manila-DriftingFor any fans of drifting, Lateral Drift Productions is definitely worth a closer look. The Pro-Am Championship promises exciting and hard fought drift action at various venues around the Metro and further afield.

Round 4 took place last week and below are a few pictures from the day. I have to point out that this was my first time trying to capture a drift event and I’ve definitely picked up a few ideas and pointers there, which will come in handy next time.

Sushi Factory Meet & Run August 2013

Sushi Factory Meet & Run August 2013Like classic Japanese cars? Maybe got one yourself? Then head down to Makati for the monthly Sushi Factory Meet & Run, a great event that seems to be growing bigger every month.

Check out the cars while you enjoy a free coffee and the company of some great people who all have a healthy dose of petrol in their blood. Come midnight, the whole convoy gets moving for a run on the skyway. A great monthly event that’s definitely worth checking out!

Megan Young Miss World 2013 Victory Parade

Megan-Young-Miss-World-Parade-MakatiAs you might know, Miss World 2013 is from the Philippines and goes by the name of Megan Young. After winning the contest, she returned to the country and the good people here put on a small victory parade for her.

Nothing big. They just closed the main road through Makati while thousands of people lined the streets and celebrated her win. Below are a few snaps from that occasion.

Muning The Street Kitten

Muning The Street KittenNormally, I wasn’t really planning on having a pet again but when I saw this little furball sitting by the side of the road here, that plan changed.

So, meet Muning the Street Kitten, who has now moved away from the street and into a more comfortable lifestyle. As she can’t pay rent, she has to pose for pictures instead and a selection of work from her modeling career can be found in the gallery below.

You can follow her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MuningTheStreetKitten.

Isle of Man TT 2013: Pictures, Video & Other Upcoming Stuff

Isle-of-Man-TT-2013The Isle of Man TT 2013 has arrived and in front of us lie two weeks of world class road racing. Like every year, I’ll be out and about over the fortnight, trying to capture and share much of the action.

This year, I’ve made the decision to “go light”, meaning no DSLR in use at all, but instead reliance on mobile devices and apps.

Like the last couple of years, you’re best off following me on Twitter and Facebook for from-the-scene coverage, as that’s where all updates will appear first. I will update this site as well but that will be done more infrequently.

I’ll be using things like Instagram and Vine a lot. You can either follow me directly on there or look out for the updates that are automatically fed through to Facebook and Twitter. While this approach will undoubtedly mean a reduction in image quality, I do somehow think that the added speed, as well as the fact that most people will ever only glance at the images from their phone while they follow the race, is simply more suited to the event. Maybe I’ll pick up a DSLR again next year and go for more moody morning pictures, maybe I won’t. We’ll see… This year, it’s all about on-the-spot stuff, so follow me and let’s enjoy TT, moment by moment, day by day!

Lotus F1 Team And Marlon Stockinger In Manila

Marlon-Stockinger-Lotus-F1-Manila-Mall-of-AsiaHere is a sight you don’t see every day: A Formula One car driving along the streets of Manila. Recently, the Lotus F1 Team and driver Marlon Stockinger stopped by here for some demonstration runs around the Mall of Asia complex.

They drew quite a crowd and completed a good number of laps with the single and the two seater car. Who knows, maybe there will be a Manila GP in the future?

High Up In Manila

Long time no post, I know. Time to revive the site a little bit, although as mentioned before, most things are now posted directly to my Facebook page and Twitter account.

So, here to kickstart the site back into life are some pictures taken from high up on the tallest building in the Philippines right now.

1962 Mercedes 180D & Your Imaginary Friends In Manila

Mercedes-180D-1962-Manila This lovely 1962 Mercedes 180D recently had an appearance in a music video and also happened to park in front of my lens on the day.

Even in a city where traffic is completely mad and driving is more a game of survival rather that simple travel, this vintage beauty made people smile and earned us thumps up from other drivers all over the place.

As to the music video where it played a supporting role, that was for Your Imaginary Friends‘ latest single and video which is embedded below.

Pictures: Cars of Manila

McLaren-MP4-12C-Manila-MakatiIt has arguably been a while since I last updated the site. Apologies for that. These days I mostly post stuff on the go and then straight to Facebook.

The below gallery is a random collection of shots from all over the place and with all sorts of cars in it. Just whatever happens to drive past or be parked by the side of the road.

Pictures: Excarvagant Carshow 2012 – Makati – Metro Manila

EXCARVAGANT CARSHOW 2012 Makati Metro Manila For quite a while did I notice that there seems to be a healthy car scene in the Philippines but I hadn’t seen many real life examples of it yet. All that changed the other night, with the Excarvagant Carshow 2012here in Makati. Only managed to get a few snaps, inclduing the only overhead shot of the night, but there sure were some nice motors around!

I still love anything to do with cars and am always looking for interesting vehicles to shoot. Just for the fun of it, not for money. If you have anything interesting (car, bike, tuned, rare, fast…) let me know! Always happy to go out, meet new people and get some good pictures done in the process. I’m based in Makati and some of my previous car stuff can be found here. My contact info is here.
