Today I bring you what could potentially be my favorite shoot to date. It's of a 2008 Balloon White Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster LP640. Rick, a good friend of mine who I met two years back during a cross state adventure hosted by Exotics Rally, brought out his Murcielago to the event and I fell in love with the car. It was then that we decided that we would shoot his car. The day finally came this past weekend, although weather conditions could have been better, the fog definitely added drama to the shoot.

A little late for 2016, but finally have some fresh material for all you guys ! First of we here at C3photography want to thank all our readers for your likes, shares, and comments. We really appreciate it and will be having a lot more new content in the coming weeks. So our first blog for 2016 is for one of C3's supporter, close friend and owner of Elite Design Concepts. Elite Design Concepts was founded in 2011 with the intention of creating modified cars that deliver personalization and serve complimentary to the manufacturer’s intent with building the car. Experienced with both old and new school cars, Elite Design Concepts is excited for what the future holds. They are not afraid to go all out with mods, including wheels and suspension; however, they do just enough work without overdoing it to make a nice setup that is sure to stand out tastefully. They have also began to recently expand their service offering with the launch of their own wheel line consisting of three-piece forged designs; edc wheels. There is no doubt that EDC is always looking for new ways to expand their product lineup and remain current. (more…)

It is not often that you get the opportunity to shoot an R34. Well, C3 got the chance to do just that. Shot in the outskirts of New York City, this 1999 Bayside Blue R34 gave the moonlight some competition. With Nismo suspension, the car sits mean on Toyo R888 Racing Tires with 18”x10.5” Volk TE37 wheels. Place your hand on its Nismo titanium shift knob and press your foot on gas, because this R34 can reach speeds of up to 300mph. The car also has a Nismo short shifter for noticeably better shifting. In addition, Nismo 1.5-way limited slip differential have been installed in the front and rear. (more…)

C3 Photography met up with Matthew Wolynski, owner of PHENOMenal Vinyl, to shoot a 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS GT. Wrapped in APA Matte blue chrome, this beast can not only be heard from a mile away, but seen as well. The photoshoot was essentially the first shoot done of this vehicle outside of the shop itself. Shot on one of the windiest, coldest days of the season, the GT kept its surroundings warm with its good looks and in-your-face wrap job. Peep the photos below and you too will feel the heat that exudes from this beast. (more…)

John disclosed that his v10 beast is stock for now, but he is looking to mod it over the winter. Future modifications may include coilovers, new wheels and a custom exhaust, among other things.

This past Halloween weekend, I got a call from a local shop in the area that specializes in custom Lowriders. They asked me to come out and take some shots in the city. Shooting a Lowrider has been a long time wish for me, as I love the Lowrider scene. Without hesitation I grabbed my gear and headed out to take some shots in the city that never sleeps, NYC ! (more…)

This week C3 met up with Wayne of PCNY, whom he'd met during the 2014 GoldRush Rally. Wayne brought out two of PCNY's toys: a 2015 Escalade Black Edition and their newest addition, a 2015 Maserati Ghibli. We got a chance to speak with Wayne while shooting these two beasts and learn more about what PCNY represents. PCNY is taking over the concierge industry, one service at a time. They cover everything from land, air and sea transportation to party planning. Their mission is to accommodate their clients in the best way they can. “My brother and I are partners. We have always loved helping people and felt that getting into this business was a good way to meet people personally, as well as build a bridge to other things,” explains Wayne of PCNY. “The goal is to take your talents and make money with it.” PCNY is constantly expanding and currently manages a number of artists. The company is also becoming more involved with the real estate industry. “Through meeting people, it becomes possible to build other things,” says Wayne. He recently started his own car rally and looks forward to seeing it flourish before his eyes in the coming years. Apart from being a successful company, PCNY has become a lifestyle. “The people that we brought into the circle are great, honest and young entrepreneurs,” Wayne adds. People who did not know each other now believe in PCNY’s circle and do business with one another. “We are happy to see other people networking because of us and helping each other,” he says. “The trust is there because of PCNY.” (more…)

In this week’s blog, C3 got a chance to meet with Sergio of Ai Motorsports and shoot his current fleet at Sergio's residence, which can be considered a dream collection to many. Sergio tells us what the company means to him: “AiMotorsports is a style or vision for the cars I own. It stems from AiMediaGroup. We focus on extreme performance for our clients. The idea is that we take their current program and make it the best that it could be. The same principles are applied to AiMortorsports, taking the best from a manufacturer and making it better. In time, I would consider making AiMotorsSports into a mainstream business. The company purely defines my car collection. I make each car custom with its own individuality without going too far, which is the hardest part. Having restraint, yet making it a one-off is what makes us unique.” The following Q&A explains Sergio’s passion for the auto industry and his advice for fellow enthusiasts: (more…)

C3 had the opportunity to meet with Joe, the owner of Xtreme Vehicle Coatings in New York, and shoot his 1995 Super Clear Red II R33 GT-R. The car shone in the moonlight in Astoria, Queens as each take of the camera aimed to capture its true beauty. With Öhlins coilver suspension and upgraded sway bars, this R33 sits perfectly on Advan gold wheels. This GT-R has a titanium exhaust, aftermarket turbos and custom downpipes. The car also features a front spoiler and rear diffuser by Top Secret. A beast with such power needs even greater stopping ability, so Joe installed StepTech 6-piston front brakes and Brembo 4-piston rear brakes. There is no denying that Joe’s R33 is eye candy, but it’s also music to your ears. Just start its engine and hear it rumble! While shooting the GT-R, Joe also spoke to us about his company Xtreme Vehicle coatings. (more…)
