Old Falken Print Ads

i found these too…these are some older falken ads that i created a few years back.  the “black” ads were my favorite, in my opinion, these ads changed falken’s advertising program as a lot of people commented on these ads.  we were trying to come up with something different from one, what other tire companies were doing and two, from what other aftermarket automotive companies were doing.

Tyler McQuarrie’s Falken Tire Nissan 350Z

browsing through some old photos i took for falken last year, i found this photo of Tyler McQuarrie drifting the Falken Tire Nissan 350Z convert. at the 2009 formula d – atlanta event.  don’t know why but this is probably one of my favorite shots of his car.

misofishy – santa monica california

my older brother just opened up a sushi restaurant in santa monica, ca…and yes, it’s called misofishy!  it’s been open for only a few months so if you’re around that area, please look it up.  anyways, he asked me to take some photos of his food for a new menu he was making.  it’s pretty amazing how he can make ordinary things look like art!  environmental designer turned sushi chef…who would have thought! haha

i have no idea what these rolls are called, but what an excuse to go to his restaurant and find out!  hey, i have to help a brother out…give him that shameless plug: misofishy – 1928 lincoln blvd., santa monica, ca 90405 – ask for steve!

although his website looks like crap (i’m allowed to say that since i’m his brother haha), check out www.misofishy.com in the next few weeks.  i’m designing a new site for him…should be better than his current one. =)

dai yoshihara

for those of you who don’t know, dai is a professional drifter who drifts in the formula d championships.  he’s currently signed on with falken tire piloting the falken tire / discount tire nissan 240 (s13).  several months back, we were hanging out in la wondering what to do…i had my camera so we decided to mess around and take some photos.  here are a couple that i took of him and his friend…

2009 Falken Tire Models

I finally have time to post this up…almost one year later! haha  These are the 2009 Falken Tire models I shot last January, I think, I forget.  So this first one is one of the shots from the photo shoot and the second photo is the actual photo is the actual poster Falken printed for shows.  The models are CJ Gibson, Lindsey Hanson, Eri Moriyama, Candace Pittman, Randyl Dawn, and Mary Castillo.

There have been some changes for 2010 and new photos but I can’t post the names or the images up yet.  Check back in about a month, I should have the new 2010 Falken model photos up by then.

Hmmm…I guess you have to click on the image to see the full version, the photo comes out blurry on the post.  Strange.

Corkscrew

i went up to the famous laguna seca raceway last year to cover the american le mans race for falken tire.  this particular photo stood out to me…this is right before the notorious corkscrew.
