2009 New Mexico International Auto Show

The big, Motor Trend sponsored auto show came though town recently. My camera and a few buddies from work went with me for the opening on Friday afternoon. Though MANY manufacturers were missing, it was a good time. The event was lightly attended, yet the cars I wanted to shoot were very popular. I didn’t get many chances to shoot whole cars, so instead I decided to do close-ups.

An example of the crowds – juuuuuuuust enough to keep me from getting clean shots of the more photogenic models.

Lots of makes were totally absent from the show- Mazda, BMW, MINI, Porsche, Mercedes, and anything Italian. This bummed me out, since all the named makes had OUTSTANDING booths in previous years. No Mazda made me a sad boy.

Quite a few “new and hot” models weren’t in attendance either, like the Chevy Volt. The new Camero was in attendance, yet was completely covered in people. It was also a dull grey color. None of my photos of it turned out. Still, it was a good time. I look forward to next year.
