Giving back – Racing For a Cure
I had an opportunity to meet Chris Loffelbein from BPI international at his shop this summer when I was looking at his 2000 BMW M5 for sale. We got to talking about his passion for cars and how he has created a charity called “Racing For a Cure”. Every year in May he and his exotic car friends take kids with cancer for a run around the Castrol track just south of Edmonton. I said if he ever needs photography I would be more than happy to come out and help him for the kids. A big smile crossed his face, he said you have no idea how I can use someone like you to assist with capturing the cars for my calendar. We set mid-September for a shoot date. He arranged with his friends to come to Danny’s, Source Auto Auction, space to have their cars photographed by themselves and with the models. What a treat! Got to meet a whole new group of people and photograph their exotic cars – from the 1980’s through to new 2014’s. Below is one of the many that I had the pleasure of photographing. Put a smile on my face being able to give back to a worthy charity, listen to the sweet sound of these different high end car engines and sealed a deal for spring delivery of Chris’ M5. Wahoo!
