Brenda Priddy may not be a household name for most, but automotive enthusiast everywhere have seen her work either online or in print. Remember that last super hot spy shot of the next must have car model? Chances are it was Brenda behind the lens capturing those hard to get and in demand photos. Not bad for a mother of two who stumbled into the whole automotive spy photography world by accident in 1995.
Fast forward a number of years to today and Brenda doesn’t have to sneak around quite as much as she did in the beginning. Sure, you can still find her hiding behind a cactus with a long range lens now and then, but these days car manufacturers are courting her. After all, when you have relationships with all the major automotive magazines and blogs (each willing to pay good money for your photos), why wouldn’t a manufacturer want to be on good terms with you? Case in point, Porsche and the Cayman R.
Waiting Our Turn
Here at FlatSixes.com we’ve been waiting patiently for our turn at the Cayman R. We knew we were on the list to get it from the Porsche press fleet some time in the late fall of 2011, we just didn’t have an exact date. So, when enough time went by and we hadn’t heard anything from our friends at PCNA, we called to check in. What we found out was that we wouldn’t be getting the Cayman R at all. Unfortunately, the journalist who had it last was involved in an accident (someone blindsided him as he was leaving the airport). Fortunately, he wasn’t hurt, but the Cayman R for our region wasn’t so lucky and it’s now out of commission for good. So, when we saw Brenda posting pics of another Cayman R on Facebook we touched base to see if she wanted to share her experience with our readers.
Not Quite Spy Photos of the Porsche Cayman R
Unlike our other Porsche reviews, this one doesn’t contain text. Instead, it’s Brenda’s gallery of work taken while enjoying her time in the Porsche Cayman R. To showcase Brenda’s work, we’re using a new gallery feature we just installed. If you’re having any trouble viewing them in this new format, please let us know and visit the site directly to see them for yourself.
A special thanks to Brenda for sharing her work. She asked us to remind you that these images are all copyrighted.
