I consider myself a nobody in this industry. From what I can tell, I haven’t really been on anyone’s radar. So, as 2018 came to a close, I took a chance and decided to reach out to some publications that I admire (perhaps you saw my letter to Super Street?). Since I started shooting more seriously, especially with vehicles, it's been a dream of mine to be a part of that world. There's just something about seeing your work in print, and watching other people enjoy it and go out of their way to look at it again and again, that brings absolute joy to my heart. This was my goal and I'd hoped I'd made enough progress to see it come to fruition in 2019.
Street Trucks responded to my inquiry almost immediately, letting me know they were very interested in featuring Brandon's truck in an upcoming mini truck issue. Sharing the exciting news with Brandon, we set a date to create some fresh new content and so we did. At the time, I was just thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic and established publication. Little did I know that my first time being involved in their publication would yield not only a multi-page feature but also the cover!
This is a feeling I've never known in photography. A 20 year old publication, with a well established following, so happy with the work I provided for them that they're willing to bank their monthly sales and reputation on it. I had no words. "Thank you," didn't seem sufficient. "I can't believe this," felt disrespectful. It's one of the most humbling experiences of my life - and I'm so incredibly excited to share it with my friends and family. So, for those who haven’t yet seen it, here’s the June 2019 cover of Street Trucks!
