Twice As Nice- 2003 Acura RSXs for Super Street Magazine

I had the pleasure of shooting these two cars for the July 2017 issue of Super Street Magazine.  The issue is out now,  so please support print and consider picking up an issue.  The shoot actually took place in Toronto, Canada in the fall of 2016.  I took awhile to edit/process these pics, but luckily I was finished in time for these cars to appear in the annual “Honda Issue.”   

Jason and Brian were really cool guys and super laid back/easy to work with.  After checking with a few friends, we found this location fairly close to where I was staying.   I didn’t bring any of my lighting equipment to the shoot, so I used natural light and multiple exposures for this particular set.  The early morning hours gave us some really nice light, but unfortunately things got a bit more harsh as the morning progressed.  Eventually I had to move to a shaded area at this location to get some additional shots of Jason’s car.  

As you guys know, I like to re-post pics from my editorial shoots after a feature drops.  For some reason, the resolution and quality is sorta degraded on Super Street’s site, but you can still go there to check out the full article and feature by clicking here.  Enjoy the pics below (click the photo for a higher res image)!

Hot & Cold- Ray’s MX-5 ND

Ray has been through several great builds over the years, but the latest is an MX5 ND.  I’ve been wanting to take a few snaps since he picked up his TE’s, so we met up this weekend for some quick shots. See below and click on the  photo for a higher res version. 

Love the Garage Vary Type 3 front lip and side skirts. 

Just an artsy shot of the newly released Bride A.I.R. bucket seat with Teamtech 5-Point Racing Harness.

The car sits nicely with my all time favorite wheels-Volk TE37’s (16×8 +25) on Stance Super Sport Coilovers with ASC Air Cup Kit. Check out a video of it in action here.

The Integral Kobe Carbon Fiber rear duckbill spoiler gives the car a nice balance and stays true to the lines of the car.

Our Hakosuka in Super Street (April, 2017)

Honored to have our Hakosuka featured in the April 2017 Super Street Magazine. After SEMA, the car was shipped over to JDM Legends (JDML) in Utah. I want to thank Eric from JDML for arranging to have the car shot by Jordan Pay. Also special thanks to Thomas Van Rooij for the post production assist on the first shot posted below. For those who missed the issue, here are some of the shots!  Click on each photo for the higher resolution photo.


Our latest unisex hoodie is quite possibly one of the nicest we have put out.  Material is 65/35 cotton/poly fleece and these are true to size.  Custom details include a printed tag in the inside of the hoodie and hand sewn label with the jdmchicago logo.  Click here to access the JDMC store.
