Fortitude is a strong word with stronger connotations. Fortitude is having the will power to overcome emotional and mental adversity without wavering from your original trajectory. I think we can agree that it’s not a word to be taken lightly, as possessing fortitude can be a burden; it’s existence is only accompanied by great pain. However, pain and adversity offer us opportunity for our character to be sharpened.

“Made in America” is a statement few companies in the automotive aftermarket can make. When it comes to the seat industry, that list is even fewer. Status Racing, one of the leaders in top-tier racing seats, can proudly make that claim, and as expected, it is a statement that holds its value. Status takes pride in representing the culmination of superior technology and aerospace materials, and that is why we’re sharing with you.
Since our relocation to Southern California, we’ve found that our concentration of efforts has led us to some unexpected places. Most recently we were invited to the opening of McLaren of Beverly Hills.
While none of us here at StanceWorks are in a position to own the new MP4-12C, it was a pleasure to be invited by eGarage to the launch, where we mingled amongst countless millionaires and celebrities alike.
There’s no doubt that 2011 will be one of those years that I always remember. 2011 was the year Ben, Mike, and I decided to follow our hearts and pursue the STANCE|WORKS journey that we all had been working so hard on. As early spring approached, I was packing my bags and moving across the country to station myself in Southern California, along with Ben, to dive into the S|W lifestyle head first…documenting it all along the way.
2011 was a fantastic year for us here at StanceWorks. It presented us with a massive number of opportunities, and as photographers at heart, we leapt at any opportunity to shoot. With 2012 already shaping up to be a big year, we wanted to take a look back on some of our favorite photos of 2011. Andrew and I each decided we’d give our photographic take on the year that has passed by posting up our best captures.
For me, 2011 was an important year as a photographer.
