Esprit Photography

My son's roommate is a very talented photographer with a creative eye. His shots and editing create magazine-quality imagery. He recently shot my '94 S4 with rolling and static shooting, and the results (as you'll see below) are poster-worthy. I have suggested that he consider doing shoots for car owners; Jonathan can be reached at [email protected]

And the second have a very good speed and action to it. Just need a tad more saturation.
Here's a quick shot from a summers evening last year. Oh, those sumer long evenings where darkness never catch on...
May they soon be back and plentifull.
Cheers,

Steering wheel was unquestionably the single best thing I've done to the car.

I didn't realize that the S4 had a glove box in the dash.

That reminds me of one of the Jay Leno videos about a steam car in his collection. Leno said the owner's manual suggested if the car started on fire to drive faster so the wind would put the fire out. As you would expect it got a laugh from Leno. Perhaps that's something this owner thinks is a good idea.

Fantastic photos!
I was commenting on the current BAT Esprit thread how its near impossible to convey in a photo what the Esprit is like IRL.
It is so low and by that token proportionally wide. I don't think that is captured here either and that is no knock on the photography!
I do like how it did capture how fast they are!

That fire was at one of our club track days at Blackhawk Farms quite a number of years ago, the damage was actually fairly minimal.
