Throwing it back this week to a time before liability insurance, proper safety procedures, and 20+ megapixel cameras.
That’s right, it’s another shoot with RPI Equipped’s Volkswagen MK7 GTI. I’ve known Jonny for roughly 5 years now, and one thing that became obvious right off the bat was Jonny rarely keeps a car for very long and the look of his cars are in a constant flux of change. His current Volkswagen MK7 GTI doesn’t break that trend one bit.
Last week we headed out to do more testing with Jonny’s new DJI Ronin-M camera gimbal, our subject car for the morning was our good friend Bojan’s Volkswagen MK7 Golf R.
If you caught one of my last posts of 2016 – Snow Hunting With RPI Equipped’s VW MK7 GTI – you may recognise some of the images in this Box One Collective vlog showcasing the “glamourous” behind-the-scenes on what was a cold and snowy day in Vancouver. (I’ve since bought a much warmer winter coat!).
I thought before I load the kids into the car and hit the road to visit family for the holidays, I’d squeeze in one last post for the year. A bit of a reflection back on the images I created, companies I was fortunate to work with, and the vehicles which found their way in front of my lens during 2016.
It’s been a month, if not longer since I sat down to create a blog post. And if you follow me on social media you may have noticed it’s been about the same timeframe since I’ve posted any content over there as well.
The initial plan was to take two weeks to unplug and spend quality time with my wife and kids while on vacation. The two weeks quickly turned into four.
It just happened, but I suppose I was ready for a break from everything internet related. Don’t get me wrong, I love it all, the instant access we have to anything and everything. But I think it’s healthy to step away from time to time to recharge and have a good look at the world right in front of us, not the one on the other side of a screen. And that’s what I did, and I have to say, I feel completely refreshed.
