In a few months the second issue of Auto Cult Magazine will be released. Inside will be an editorial feature on the Royal Jokers Car Club that I photographed. We shot each car with it’s owner at different spots in Hayward, CA – a great town for shooting lowriders and customs. The ride above is RJ’s 1973 Riviera and lit with 3 strobes at dusk. The photo does not do the paint justice. The Jokers don’t clown around when it comes to paint.
One of the things I’m most looking forward to seeing is Patrick Cheatham’s 360 spherical panoramas of the Royal Jokers for Auto Cult’s website. It looks like a nice way to blend photography into interactive pieces for online publications or editorial websites. Big thanks to Jokers RJ, Javier, Jimmy, Carlos, Ben, Jose, and Freddy. I also want to thank the town of Hayward for staying inside to watch the super bowl. That allowed us to shoot at several spots without getting noticed or kicked out. Thanks!
