JDM GEEK – Geeks Wanted

Friday August 30, 2013

Over the past year AutoCity Imports has been working to get our JDM GEEK division off the ground and running. JDM GEEK is “enthusiast driven” and delivers photo coverage from events across the United States. When we say “enthusiast driven” we’re talking everything from ownership and administrative staff down to the growing list of contributing photographers. Everyone involved with JDM GEEK is an active part of the automotive tuning culture and shares a passion for seeing our scene continue to flourish. JDM GEEK is showcasing the scene to promote local involvement, support grassroots events, and bring together people who share this vision.

In 2012 JDM GEEK shot a total of 40 events and has already surpassed that number for 2013. Not only are we shooting more events this year, but we are shooting bigger events, working closer with the event coordinators, teaming up with more photographers, and setting up shop as a supporting paid vendor at many of the shows we are shooting.

Check out our all-new JDM GEEK website, Facebook page, and Instagram page to view thousands of photos from some of the biggest tuner events over the past two seasons.

AutoCity Imports works with an amazing group of people from all over the country to keep JDM GEEK alive and current. We have a great administrative staff, some very talented contributing photographers, and a whole lot of heart — but it’s going to take MANY more to take this vision to the next level. We need car crews big and small so we can help build awareness of your club, event coordinators so we can plug and cover your next event, and most importantly, videographers and photographers of all skill levels to help with the coverage. Our current group of photographers reaches across eight states but there are many more events across the U.S. that we would love to cover. If you’re interested in getting involved with JDM GEEK, please contact us at [email protected] We’d love to hear from you!!
