After a few years of creating these images of Peterbilts with Agnes Olech, here is the 1st comprehensive published editorial of this work. As you may know, Peterbilt made this idea famous starting back in the 1960s when they were selling an idea of “Class” to the owner/operator. They made calendars and magazine ads by photographing an elegantly dressed woman in front of their trucks. After coming across these images years ago, I decided to bring this idea back and knew just the actress to cast. Agnes Olech has an “Old Hollywood” look about her and my stylist Lindsey Dupuis has a great eye for vintage inspired, modern designed dresses. Please keep a look out for a couple 2013 calendars featuring my photography and production coming out soon.
After much anticipation, the 1st edition of the Chrome and Elegance Calendar is finally here.I teamed up with Carl at Rockwood Products Inc and Tim Ludwig to make this calendar happen.It features 13 different rigs with actress Agnes Olech in a studio environment.For more info please check the the website hereMake sure you get yours order now as there are limited supplies and this one is bound to become collectors edition.

There were over 30 Peterbilts in attendance and over 5000 people at the open house. This is the only factory in North America where Long Haul Peterbilt trucks are built. I will leave you with this aerial shot of the factory.
