That Seventies Show

This year's theme at the Nagoya Speed & Custom Show was 70's style. So when Toshi (Deadend Magazine Japan) asked us if we were interested in shooting Primera Car Club, Parliament Car Club and a couple other prominent 70's style low rider clubs from Japan we had to say yes.

If you're familiar with Deadend Magazine you know we rarely shoot vehicles this new. However you can see from the following photos there was no way we were going to turn down shooting these amazing 70's inspired low riders.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 03/14/17

Our first stop this weekend was the Niles Cruise Night. If you've never gone you need to make it a point to go. Good vibes and great rides. Plus Bronco Billy's Pizza right across the street.

After attending the Streetlow Show in Salinas, CA we headed to San Jose, CA to shoot Aieko Espejo with Robert Velasco's (R&S Hydraulics) 1941 Chevy Convertible.

Woman Wednesday - Aieko Espejo

Aieko Espejo has become a model (and friend) we work with quite often in recent years. Aieko is very easy to work with, professional and obviously good looking. She has even helped us direct other models at photo shoots. We're glad to have her! Enjoy some of the shots we've captured over the last couple years.

Carlos from DTA Photography helped us with our first photo shoot with Aieko.

Some of our clients have specifically asked for her Aieko. (Yes we sometimes make time to shoot for other, Here she poses with a custom bike built by The Cruiser Shop)

Blush Make-Up Studio in Monterey, CA also liked Aieko's look so much they hired us to shoot her in a pin-up look with Henry Gong's Nomad.

I'm sure you'll see more of Aieko in future Deadend Magazine projects. In the meantime enjoys these.
