I met up with my buddy Josh of Lunchbox PhotoWorks the other day to take some car photos. But not just any car photos. Rig photos.

My first rig photo.

I’ve always wanted to play with a rig, but I’ve never had a chance. And while the cost of entry isn’t really high, it isn’t really low either. So I’ve just held off on buying the crazy suction cups and mounting arms and just drooled over other’s rig pix.

The Rig.

The Rig.

Pretty sweet, yeah? And amazingly heavy for being aluminum. All of that held by two suction cups. I was a little nervous the first time I bolted my camera on. Josh soothed my worries by saying he’d only had the rig fail once.

heh. “Once.”

Anyway, it was a great time. We shot for hours. I mostly operated Sharka while Josh took rig pix. We changed locations and did some static shots as well. Overall, one of the finest afternoons of shooting in recent memory.

It was getting later and we were packing up our various camera gear. Then Josh had an idea for something unique. A rollbar rig.

Which produced this shot.

I don’t get that many chances to have shots of me taken while driving Sharka. Usually, I’m the one shooting and Sharka is parked. So this shot is pretty high in my all-time favorites list. Me driving my beloved Roadster. Love it.

Thanks for the great afternoon of shooting, Josh! I can’t wait to do it again.

    Somehow, me grabbing a snap from the passenger seat isn’t quite the same. Excellent photos!

    Can’t wait to get my hands on a high res version of that rear rig shot. It shall be the desktop on the TV at the office. (Sharka always is!) Makes me want to get some rolling shots of mine. Don’t think I’ll be cool enough to get a rig, though.

      High res shot emailed!

      As for being cool enough for a rig, donno about that. Lucky seems more like it. There MAY be only one rig in my whole state. I was lucky enough to get it suction cup’d to Sharka one day.

    oh my god… those rig shots are amazing!

    Whoa…. those shots are mind bogglingly good! i have to admit, pic #8 (cloudy) was the first time i realized the paint color of your modified headlamp was (ever so)slightly different from the rest of the car… looks a bit darker…

    • revlimiter says:

      ha! Nice spotting. Yes, my NACA duct lid is a bit off from the rest of the car. It came from my wrecked 97 which was slightly darker colored. I’ve had my 95 headlight lid on my workbench for ages with the idea of hacking it up for the NACA duct. Just haven’t had a chance yet.
