A few months ago, I decided to submit some of my work this particular contest because of the international jury of distinguished designers, art directors and photographers that were judging the competition. One of whom was Easton Chang, arguably the most renowned automotive photographer on the planet and is one of the main reasons why I started to take pictures of cars nine years ago.

[APA] Automotive Photography Awards Winner

A few months ago, I decided to submit some of my work this particular contest because of the international jury of distinguished designers, art directors and photographers that were judging the competition. One of whom was Easton Chang, arguably the most renowned automotive photographer on the planet and is one of the main reasons why I started to take pictures of cars nine years ago.

Heres an excerpt from my official entry:

I wanted a monochromatic, crisp, clean, and almost sterile look for this shot. I chose the World Market Center Las Vegas as the backdrop because I felt the lines and architecture would be the perfect complement to the angular and aggressive Aventador.

 To help celebrate the occasion, Valentino Balboni, Lamborghini's famed test driver signed and autographed the award winning print.
