ID Agency Open House x My Art Gallery – Photos by Bob Hernandez

March 26th, 2010

ID Agency

Last night there was a great open house at the ID Agency in DTLA. I had some photos featured in the art gallery along with Estevan Oriol and Mo Satarzadeh. All three of us were on the 2009 Gumball 3000 rally and had some photos featured from it along with some of our other photography.

Here is a display of my photography hung up on the wall.

Here is a close up of my T-Pain photograph I took years ago at his house next to Vaughn Gittin’s 2005 Sonoma drifting picture.

Here I am receiving Ricky’s special beer delivery. Not only is Ricky great at beer delivery he is an excellent photographer that does tons of work for Wrecked Magazine! The Corona was for him and the Bud Light was for me. It ended up being a great night and I really appreciate all the support of people who came out. Thanks to Bob Hernandez for these photos he put up on Facebook and I will make new posts when other people send me or put up some photographs.

Bad News Shit Talkers on this Website!

March 24th, 2010

While I am a huge free speech advocate and just a general believer in the rights you have as a human they are slowly dwindling away. While I am not in for some political debate I just surely hope this gets appealed to the Supreme Court. The Second Circuit United States Court of Appeals (in California of course) has announced that in a 2-1 decision that online threats are not protected free speech, specifically in comments posted on the web.

As annoying and dumb I feel people are on the Internet it is there God given right to be and if you don’t like it then don’t read the Internet. The case this all involves around is quite an extreme case which relates much more to poor parenting and shit for brains kids produced by those parents.

Automotive Photo Exhibition in Downtown LA this Thursday

March 21st, 2010

First off a huge thanks to ID Agency for having this automotive photo exhibit. I only selected one drifting photograph for my gallery since we have limited space but it’s one of my favorite drifting photos of all time. The photograph is from the 2005 Formula Drift Sonoma event and features Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifting his Falken Tire Ford Mustang. This was only his fourth event ever in the car if I recall correctly.

Here is some info on the other photographers featured:
Estevan Oriol
Mo Satarzadeh

And lastly a huge thanks to ID Agency for having us at their venue!

Quote of the Day by Theodore Levitt

March 3rd, 2010

“All organizations are hierarchical. At each level people serve under those above them. An organization is therefore a structured institution. If it is not structured, it is a mob. Mobs do not get things done, they destroy things.”

Fantasy Drift Launched Finally!

March 1st, 2010

I am sure you have seen we launched Fantasy Drift over at Wrecked Magazine and it is one of the most exciting projects I have worked on since we launched this website back in 2007. The concept was a personal vision of mine after being hooked into fantasy NHL hockey and fantasy NASCAR.

Now all of the die hard Formula Drift fans can enjoy a great game to play while following the 2010 series. The video above walks you through the registration and draft process. If you still have questions or are confused on any element of the Fantasy Drift please use the website contact form at the top right of the site to ask any questions.

I just want to thank everyone who contributed thoughts, marketing tips, game building logic, or time to this project. Everyone at PM Lifestyle was a huge help on this project especially Jason Small who single handily coded and created the logic my concept to a reality. My last thanks goes to all the media who blasted out our project: MotorWorldHype, UrbanRacer, Fatlace, Formula D, and everyone else!

This second video walks you through the process of how to play the game once your draft is complete in April. Bookmark this video since you will need it to really play the game at 100%.

A Blog Your Not Reading That You Should Be

February 18th, 2010

Do You Come with the Car?

I wanted to spend a quick second to introduce you to one of my favorite automotive related websites for the moment. The site is run by “An anonymous auto show model dishes about what really goes on behind the scenes, our interactions with visitors and what you need to know about how to behave in public. Hint: Don’t touch me,” according to her website.

She dishes about the life of an auto show model and the dumb people she interacts with on a constant basis. She has a witty sarcasm behind her words and quite the sense of humor. If you want some more insight on why you don’t attend auto shows around the USA or need a good laugh this is your go to website. She has to be one of the best choices for giving you a great perspective of events that take place and some top notch diction to really set a quality tone for her posts.

A Day In The Life with Me – February 2nd

February 9th, 2010

Lucky the Cat

Before this website I use to be really good at life blogging and lately I am just way to busy to get around to it. So last Thursday I had a really full day so I made sure to document it for the blog. The first photo above is Lucky who is my roommates cat. He is quite a character and greeted me before I left in the morning with him in the “play dead” position. Funny story actually is that the cat use to belong to Daijiro Yoshihara.

Chick-Fil-A

I headed down to Orange County for the first leg of my day and off Highway 55 there happens to be a Chick-Fil-A which I grabbed some breakfast at. They only have a few of these in California so when I am near one it’s a must for breakfast.

1957 Porsche

1957 Porsche

I saw this 1957 Porsche Carrera on Highway 55 heading to Hyundai. This thing looked flawless and was well maintained and cared for by the owner. It had a great sound to it as he flew by me down the highway.

Hyundai North America - California

My first stop was Hyundai North America to pick up some Genesis seats. Miles was a great help finding some seats for a new project we are doing. We will have more on project coming to the website soon.

AMG Black Mercedes

I had to drop off my Mercedes carburetor to get rebuilt since it has been having some issues after it idles for a few minutes. In the parking lot is a red Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black  that looked fantastic. A white M3 was also in the corner of the parking lot when I swung by.

Super Street Magazine

After dropping off the Mercedes parts in Orange County I headed up to Manhattan Beach to shoot some Wrecked Magazine voice overs. Peter from Modified Magazine lives at the apartment we were recording at and had this nostalgic Super Street Magazine cover hanging in the dining room.

Wrecked Magazine Voice Over

Wrecked Magazine Voice Over

Nik did an awesome job with our Wrecked Magazine voice overs. She is the voice of a tutorial we are releasing later this month. This second photo is Nik engrossed in deep thought about her favorite Formula Drift driver Rhys Millen.

Los Angeles Traffic

After dropping off Nik and heading into Downtown Los Angeles I found some traffic of course.

Sixth Street Bridge - Los Angeles
Here I am crossing the Sixth Street Bridge heading into Los Angeles. This bridge is always empty and has a distinct look and feel that I just love as you drive into downtown.

Downtown Los Angeles
Coming off the Sixth Street bridge you get a great view of Downtown Los Angeles. It’s also not very often you see clouds around Los Angeles so I really liked this shot.

Forza Motorsport 3 Xbox 360

Sitting on a desk when I walked in to my meeting was a Forza Motorsport 3 Xbox 360. Very few of these were made and it features an Audi R8 and a carbon fiber styled front.

Halo 3 ODST Xbox 360

Snoop Dog x Famous Stars Straps - 10 Year

I also scored two gifts while visiting including Halo 3 ODST and a Snoop Dog x Famous Stars Straps 10 Year Anniversary Party t-shirt. The photograph of Snoop Dog was shot by Estevan Oriol.

ID Agency
The last shot comes from the ID Agency where some awesome classic cars are sitting right now. My favorite is this blue Chevrolet truck you can see in this shot. After leaving here it was off to home in lots of traffic.
