Hello all.

I finally got the photos from Gerald, ( He is the Guy who took all my pictures) He took over 2000 photos, over a 3 day period roughly 3 hours a day, Weather was always a issue, but we got at least 600 very good clear shots.
He does events like weddings, Birthday party's ETC he normally charges 1000 dollars for these events, He did it as a favor so No charge:), but he's never photographed cars, especially rolling shots, so he was worried his pictures weren't very good, you all can be the judge of that.

We are planning a future photo shoot in January, February time frame, when summer is almost here, and should have clear skies, also we'll do more evening shots, and shots right after dusk.

Also we'll have hopefully his brother there as he is a video photographer and has all the equipment like the Gimbels etc, also the next shoot will being doing some of it at Clark Speedway Track, for my first Road course Track day.

Here are 30 shots I'll be printing up, I will actually be printing up 147 total some will be framed to 11x14 though 24x36 size and hung with my other framed up stuff of other cars, GT500's and many others, 1 picture is for the Tribute piece I am making, waiting on Ted to make the plate, I'll mount it with the Ford Performance Letter from Jim Owen and Ford Performance Certificate from the owners kit, also Shelby Americans Registry Certificate too.

So I hope you all like the Mistresses first ever photo shoot from a real camera and not my lousy Cellphone pictures, I post on here. :p :LOL:

We used My Landcruiser as the photographers perch sitting in rear, and eventually moving to the backseat and front seat for the rear of the car shots, also If you look close you'll see my 4ft 11inch wife in the passenger seat enjoying the whole thing cruising all around Subic Freeport Zone and onto SCTEX Tollway. Lots of Fun even with frustrating weather issues.

One of my favorites is photo 8 the night shot with the big truck in the background, I wish we got a few more of these

I hope these are at least as good or almost as good as what some of you have posted, Gerald was very worried I would be disappointed in these pictures, I Wasn't;)🙏:love:

Thomas your friend did a great job at capturing your incredibly shiny awesome car! I can see why you like the one with the truck, that’s a great one! Thanks for sharing them with us.
Thank you Barb, yeah as we were out shooting these shots, we were carrying microfiber towels to keep it clean, as it was rainy at times. Overall it was fun and interesting experience.:)

Your photographer has a great eye. Nice shots of the mistress.
Thank you Ryan🙏, He'll love hearing that as he was so worried he won't do a good job:).

I like to thank everyone for the kind comments, my photographer Gerald will be spending Thanksgiving with us this year, I'll let him read this thread, he'll be so happy. He's a very hard working guy.

Thank you all again🙏🙏🙏:)
