Adventures with Nick & Savanna

TRAVIS YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHY // 2015

As my uneventful Wednesday night was about to end I had the random urge to make images. I started running through my contacts texting different photographers that I knew and all of them had already jumped into their pjs and had called it a night. Feeling extra desperate I took my urge to Facebook and long behold the first response was from Nick & Savanna, a lovely couple who wanted nothing more to do than explore with me on this random, somewhat below freezing, and late Wednesday night.

Dealershippin’ at Baron BMW

I had an open weekend and realized I had absolutely nothing to do. I quickly realized that if I don’t get up and make some automotive images, I was going to go absolutely insane. So I got up and went lookin’ for cars early in the morning at a local dealerships and learned a lot on my expedition.

E-Mman’s Jetta

Awhile back in the land of Kansas City the winter temperatures decided that it had overstayed its welcome. And with the departure of insanely cold days comes the warmer weather and people take their car builds out of winter mode and put their summer wheels back on the salt free roads. And with all of this comes the first car meet I’ve attended this year, the Project G Racing get together over spring break.
