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.

Although wild paint jobs are the most popular amongst Primera Car Club members this 1968 Impala shows that simple and clean also represents the 1970's.

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.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/16/17 (1 of 2)

The rain kept us from doing much last weekend so we made up for it this weekend. 

We started out the weekend shooting Ella at RenoBilt's shop in Madera, CA with Reno's cool custom Ford pick-up.

Our second stop was in Chula Vista, CA to shoot Melin's 36 Chevy. We've been wanting to shoot this bomb since we first laid eyes on it a few years ago. Glad we finally caught up with Melin and his beautiful bomb.

Then we headed a few miles north to San Diego, CA to shoot Jess at The Lower Left (aka Tribal Gear headquarters) with Bobby's 59 Impala.

Sunday we headed to Pomona, CA for the Pomona Swapmeet & a photo shoot.

Come back tomorrow for the photos!

Thanks for looking!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 08/08/16

Early Saturday morning we jammed down to LA with Kid Nunez to shoot at the Torres Empire Los Angeles Super Show. It's pretty cool to see so many nice top notch low riders under one roof.

After shooting at the show we met up with David Novelo so Julian "Kid Nunez" can shoot his clean '59 Impala for his upcoming photo exhibit (This Friday at Cukui in San Jose, CA) 

While we were in So Cal Jesus snapped a few shots of Mayra in Salinas, CA

Woman Wednesday - Leah

This Wednesday we bring you Leah. The first lady we shoot in 2016. AS you can see Leah is rocking our latest "California" raglan and our burgundy Deadend OE cap. Enjoy..

Thanks for looking!

Woman Wednesday - Jessica

We've had the pleasure of shooting with Jessica a few times. The last time we had Carlos from DTA Photography shoot Jessica for us at Gravelle Manufacturing in Salinas, CA.

Thanks for looking!

Woman Wednesday - Genesis

We didn't have to go far to snap some photos of Genesis. A Salinas native, Genesis, can be found roaming around many local (and non-local) car shows. We're glad she posed with some of our gear and plan to work with her in the future. Enjoy..
