It’s official, baby…


JACKSON, Mich. – PMA announces Hollywood legend and TV personality/producer Fireball Tim Lawrence and his stable of Hollywood cars will return to The Big Photo Show, May 17-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Big Photo Show is for photo enthusiasts, advanced amateur photographers, pros, and everyone who loves taking pictures.

Sponsored by Sony, several famous vehicles will be featured in Fireball Tim’s Hollywood Car Showcase, provided by LA’s premiere build house, Picture Car Warehouse. Fireball Tim has designed some of the most recognizable vehicles in the world, creating cars and motorcycles for companies like Disneyland and Universal Studios. You have seen his vehicles in Avengers, Priest, Knight Rider, Batman, Son of the Mask, Pitch Black, Jurassic Park, X-Men, Gone in 60 Seconds and more than 400 other movies and TV programs.

“I’m really excited to be back for this year’s Big Photo Show, which is going to be even bigger and better than last year. It’ll be awesome — I’ll have all new movie cars for photo buffs to snap, and I will be teaching a Car Photography Seminar each day of The Big Photo Show at 11:30 a.m. We’ll be shooting some really cool movie cars and movie bikes, learning angles and space division. Plus, I will share ideas on how to enhance your shots with Photoshop, Instagram and all online networks – and take SuperSelfies!” Fireball said.“I’m eager to spend two days in the coolest photography convention ever, because this year the technology and tools are even better.”

Among the “star” vehicles Fireball Tim will be bringing to The Big Photo Show are the “General Lee” from “Dukes of Hazzard,” the Camaro from the new movie “22 Jump Street,” the motorcycles from the movie “Priest,” the Continental from the Justin Timberlake film “In Time,” and the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade that will soon be featured on Fireball Tim’s show, “5Minute Drive.”

Fireball Tim has appeared on the Speed Channel, TLC, Discovery and The Auto Channel. He is also author of the children’s book, “Fireball Tim’s Big Book of Wacky Rides,” and the forthcoming “Fireball Tim’s Big Book of Wacky States,” and will be signing books at The Big Photo Show.

All of this, and so much more, will be happening at the Los Angeles Convention Center May 17-18. Register for The Big Photo Show, and learn what else you can do at this exciting photography event, at
