In the last year or so my business has changed as more and more "hot rodders" have requested personalized photo shoots for their cars. Some need photos for insurance purposes or build sheets to valuate their investments. In either case I try to give them a better bang for their buck, personally researching out unique locations for those shoots. With that change I am required to upgrade equipment and I am in the process of doing just that. From time to time I also pull together what I like to call our "Road Crew" and do it up right. As the old saying goes...Speed Costs Money...How Fast Do You Want To Go?
