I was given a media pass to the Cars & Couture 2012 event at the Tampa International Jet Center that was held to benefit the charity Autism Speaks. Being an avid supercar fan, I was very excited to have the opportunity to photograph some of my favorite cars in a cool setting. In the above photo, you can see my absolute current favorite car, the Ferrari 458 Italia on the left. This was also my first chance to get to see the new Ferrari FF (on the right) in person. I thought the FF looked smaller than I thought it would being a 4-seater with ample cargo space.
I arrived at 6pm as the sun was getting low in the sky allowing me to catch some of the sunset mixed with the hangar location of the event as seen in the above shot of a very rare Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. I like the design of this Alpha quite a lot. It was given the best spot, perhaps because it arrived late!
I must say that an airplane hangar makes a great venue for showcasing cars and allowing guests to have both an indoor and outdoor experience, especially when there is a big view of the Florida sky at dusk as a backdrop. It was a little hot inside the hangar though as even this late into October Florida refuses to acknowledge that it is in fact autumn.
I had a great time at this event and am very thankful I was given a press pass. My supercar itch, is for the moment, somewhat scratched!
