2010 NAIAS – Detroit Auto Show

This year I attended the North American International Auto Show (Also known as the Detroit Auto Show) on Tuesday, Jan 19th for both photography and work purposes.  That morning, people with cameras were allowed in an hour early for a photography contest hosted by the organizers and radio station WWJ.  Though I felt like I got some good images, I didn’t get things edited in time to enter the contest.  C’est la vie.

NAIAS Designer Night 2010

Every year since 1990 (Or thereabouts) there has been a gathering of automotive creative designers held in conjunction with the North American International Auto Show. (Detroit Auto Show)  They’ve been hosted by a number of venues, including The State Theater, The College for Creative Studies, The Rattlesnake Club and most often in recent years, The Bankle Building (Now called Art &Development), home to a variety of artists, including Camillo Pardo, noted ex-Ford designer.  I’ve attended a fair number of them over the years and the event thrived or waned depending on the economic climate and thus the sponsorship money available to put it on.  The couple years that Ford sponsored the event at the Rattlesnake were pretty lavish affairs indeed.  This year Camillo, his hard working mom and a gang of volunteers again hosted the event at Art and Development.  Despite troubled times for the auto industry, the party drew it’s usual large crowd of designers and other celebrants.  This year I was asked to shoot the event by the organizers.  It’s hard to turn down a job when you get to spend it doing something you enjoy with a bunch of friends!!

Welcome to B2 Photographique!!

This is the first post for the new, updated blog and web site.  It’s my intent to post a photo here plus a linked gallery for all of the significant (And not so significant, on occasion) photography shoots and projects that I undertake.  Additionally, I will try to provide a little backstory for each post, in order to set the stage and detail the events in the images as well as those that are connected but unseen.  For the past 18 months, I have published my work primarily to Flickr.com.  I will still maintain a significant presence there for the short term future, until this site is firmly established.  Once that happens I will largely stop updating there, with some exceptions.  This site will likely evolve as my knowledge of web publishing expands from it’s current rudimentary base and I’m able figure out how to customize and accessorize to suit my needs and tastes.  Please keep in mind that all images are copyrighted to B2 Photographique.  All rights are reserved unless a permission for their use has been negotiated either verbally or through licensing.

Thanks for stopping by!
