It's not directly California related but some may know I recently wrote an article on the Nest Pod for the California beach including taking all the photographs. I really enjoyed it and the magazine editor was happy with the work.

This then lead to another full bus feature opportunity (my first ever), which involved interviewing the owner, writing the article and doing a full photoshoot of his rather lovely bus.

Much to my delight I discovered that not only did they like my article but my photo was deemed good enough to be on the front cover of VW Bus magazine, a first time someone has done this on their first bus feature. So if you see Issue 83 on the shelves and a rather striking red T6 on the front, I am proud to say it's my work. :) (hopefully I wasn't told incorrectly ;) ) let me know if you see it.

Fingers crossed for more in future. :)

My VW splittie was featured on the front cover of VW Camper & Bus 6 years ago. The amount of extra attention it grabbed was insane!

Here are some of the pictures the chap took
