I had an awesome time shooting the 2014 Tuner Evolution Custom Car show at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. I arrived early enough to capture the first several hundred custom car enthusiasts waiting in line to see some of the best custom cars in the area. The folks at Tuner Evolution know how to put on a GREAT SHOW with raffle giveaways which some of the winners won various prizes like a Go Pro Hero 3 camera and one lucky guy walked away with a nice 50 inch Flat screen TV! Not bad for buying a raffle ticket and have their number called!
The attention to detail each car owner puts into their work is impeccable. From complete body mods, paint, vinyl wrapping, rims, and sound system the Tuner Evolution show was event not to be missed. Beautiful models graced the halls and posed for fans and photographers all day long. The Model Lounge was a very popular spot to be during the show! 🙂 Along with the cars, Silverback B-Boy Events sponsored the UDEF Pro B-Boy battle where crews or individuals battled and showed off their best break dancing moves! Just as the show was winding down, the moment everyone was waiting for was upon us. The infamous Bikini Contest! A total of 16 beautiful ladies graced the stage one by one and showed off their “bikini bodies” in hopes of winning the top prize which was $500.
All in all, I had a very good time shooting this show. I met some new friends and look forward to shooting this show next year! I have included some images I shot below in between shooting video. VIDEO COMING SOON!
