In the weeks prior to StanceWars i can remember asking my friends if they were going to the show, since the show doesn’t have as long of a history as some of the other events in the pacific northwest i could immediately see the doubtful gaze growing in their eyes. I would go on to convince them of the great experience i had last year, describing the layed back atmosphere and all the great cars, the fantastic location, only to end my argument by simply stating, StanceWars was by far my favorite event of the year.

It has been agreed on by many, Tailored Seattle was by far one of the best most well gathered selections of cars that we had seen in the Northwest in a long time. The atmosphere at the show was just about perfect, there wasn’t much of a competition or even anything in the way of trophies at all, but to be honest i wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Without the traditional trophies, judging and the like it gave the night a much more relaxed and laid back feel. In my opinion I think there needs to be more shows, or meets rather, like this. Do everyone a favor and take the stress right out of the event, and encourage others to get out there and meet new people, just hang out and have a good time. Read more ›
This past saturday i had a great time, i met a lot of cool people and had to opportunity to shoot some cars that i dont normally have the opportunity to shoot. The day started out at Griot’s Garage in Tacoma, WA for a meet put on by NW-Built, who has a reputation for not being make specific, and that everyone with a good attitude can come out for a good time. Saturday was no different and surprisingly the weather turned out be pretty nice with the regular rain shower here and there in the early after noon but cleared up and tuned into a nice day later on, perfect for taking photos.
After leaving the meet a small group of us rolled down to the tide flats in tacoma for a StanceWars photo shoot. A few of the cars that were featured for the shoot was Mark Bello’s Scion tC, Vernon Lim’s RSX, Connor Surdi’s silver WRX, and Billy Gano’s black Miata. Check out the photos and dont forget to head over Andrew Cox Photography for prints of your favorites.
