    I have been off and on this site for a couple years now posting here and there but nothing really major.

    My name is Aaron Long and I am a photographer based out of Louisville KY and I mainly specialize in automotive photography. I work freelance for a couple websites and for Mini Truckin' magazine. Ive been published in Mini Truckin' 6 or 7 times but back in the fall of 2013 I landed my first cover shoot which found its way onto the April issue of the magazine.

    I only had one shot at getting the pictures I needed for the feature because the truck is from Michigan and I live in Kentucky so i drove 6 hours to a car show in Akron Ohio only to get there to pouring rain. I got lucky though and the rain stopped for about a hour and I was able to get all the shots I needed.

    I used my trusty EP3 and panasonic 20mm 1.7 for the shoot and I was extremely please with what it cranked out for me.

    Here are some of the images used:

    I also managed to land 2 other smaller features in the same issue which made this achievement a lot sweeter for me. the other 2 where shot at a car show earlier in the year with a different setup but it was still a M4/3 :wink:

    Nice to see a fellow E-P3 shooter getting recognition. I've also had some success with my trusty E-P3 in club competitions and an exhibition. So long as you keep the ISO below or at 1600, I find I get consistently beautiful images.

    Great photos! I love shooting my EP3 with the panny 20 on it. It's been a great combo for me as well.

    Well done! Congrats on getting the cover. I actually think the cloud cover and wet ground did you a favor, though I'm sure you'd have done well either way.

    Great pix Aaron! The E-P3 is a GREAT camera and not sure why it doesn't get more love here on the forum... That said, in many ways I prefer the way it renders better than the E-M5, E-M1 & the GH4 -- all of which I own... Thanks for sharing.

    (oh, and BTW, it ALWAYS seems to rain every time I've needed to get the shot too!)

    Congratulations! And nice pics btw. Those older m4/3s are still very usable when there's enough light. :2thumbs:
