It’s hard not to look at other photographers’ work and find myself immediately frustrated. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t the case to see someone’s truly amazing photo, and garner a little bit of hate for them. The word “jealousy” is probably more fitting, but it also comes paired with respect. I’ve been photographing cars for about seven years now. My first-ever photo shoot took place in high school – actually, behind my high school – with my bone-stock 1993 325iS.
Last Friday marked the one year anniversary of Keith’s acquisition of his 1966 Volvo Amazon 122. It’s been only a year since he drove down to his friend, Jeremey’s, house to take a leap back into the car world after a brief hiatus. Jeremy, an avid Volvo fan himself, is the one guilty of spreading the Volvo bug to Keith. He always had a collection of Volvos around, ranging from built 240s to classic Amazons.
As the calendar year draws to yet another close, I’m reminded why my camera accompanies me at my side through our travels. It’s always such a pleasure to look back through the hard drives and articles that chronicle the StanceWorks adventures.

With each shutter actuation, we capture a moment and file it away among tens of thousands of other moments.
2013 has ended as quickly as it arrived. With 2013 came numerous opportunities: some expected, and others a complete surprise. We’ve put more under our belt than ever before, and Andrew and I are excited to put our fifth year of StanceWorks in the books. 2014 looks to be a better year than any previous, as we approach it with the same grassroots mentality StanceWorks has become known for.
