2018 Recap? Too soon?
For me this is my year recap, it was one of the most important years of my life, both personal and business wise.
Last year I decided I wanted to come and life/work in Nürburg, that was around the end of November, exactly one year ago.
Although my job was extremely well paid, there was something missing and it was indeed a very lonely life, so with no idea of what to come, I decided to dive in and managed to move into Nürburg.
It was a very rough year overall, specially financially it was a learning curve to me, to learn how to manage finances properly and what to do with them, it’s amazing what we can do if we put our mind into it!
And in May 2018, I got the opportunity to work as a photographer for @apexnuerburg , where the main thing would be media coverage and one of the photographers for @racetracker.de .
After that, we decided that there was a hole that needed filling in Nürburg, and me and @tomstamp started to do some photosessions, which I can say proudly, we had 100% positive feedback and people started coming from all around Europe for our pictures, actually, we shot a couple of European deliveries as well, cars that are presently in the U.S.A.! That’s something special, things escalated to the point where people started printing my pictures into their walls, and me having some of my pictures as “pictures of the month” in some of the UK magazines, word spreaded out and I couldn’t be more proud.
After all this, the most proud moments of this year was to finally find a nice little house in Nürburg in an exclusive location, and also starting a relationship which I haven’t been “promoting” because I do like to keep private things, private 😉
It was also filled with special moments, like watching the release of the new Porsche series, the 911 mark 2, meaning both GT3 RS and the beastly GT2 RS, and watching them breaking the lap time record for production cars, followed by the Lamborghini SVJ, and later this year beaten again by @manthey_racing GT2 RS...
Talking about Porsche, it was funny that my first full year in Nürburg, was also the year when the @nuerburgring lap record was beaten!
