It takes a person of high stature to have one of the most respected photographers make you your own portfolio. But by most accounts, at least as far as the auto industry is concerned, Stefan Winkelmann fits that bill to a tee. As the CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Winkelmann is the top boss of one of the most esteemed and well-known high-performance automakers in the world.

On that end, noted photographer Jordan Shiraki, of the Shirakiphoto fame, created a portfolio exclusively for Stefan Winkelmann. Featuring some of the best collection of photographs you’ll ever see of Lamborghini, Shiraki went to painstaking lengths compiling the portfolio for Winkelmann.

If you’re as much a fan of photography as we are – especially those that include supercars – then Shiraki’s work is a definite work of art, one that we’d love to get our hands on someday. Of course, that’s easier said than done considering it was created for Winkelmann himself, but we’re still holding out hope that someday, we get to flip through those pages and be even more impressed with Shiraki’s masterful photographs.

My brother recently had a car accident and his premiums sky rocketed, and he heard about "Clearance Auto" and now his premium is lower with same coverage. If anyone is interested search online and find them.

I have checked the gallery. And I would say that I’m really impressed with the styling of the car! I was impressed on how car was taken!

I agree with you, Mr. Shiraki, really has a talent in photography. I want to learn his technique and style so that I could make a beautiful portfolio just like this.

Wow! that is so generous for Mr. Shiraki to do such thing. Me too I’m fascinated to look at the Lamborghini! His portfolio really captured the beauty of the Lambo.

We’re sure it’s quite impossible to take a bad photo of a Lamborghini, no matter your skill level with a camera

Although Lamborghini showed a Miura concept car at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, Winklemann dismisses the exercise as simply a one-off tribute to the car’s 40th anniversary, not the precursor to a limited run of production cars.

One car remains out front, a black Gallardo, and one light remains burning. It’s the light in Winkelmann’s office. He’s silhouetted against the light, gesturing with one hand as he holds a cell phone in the other.

The images look so amazing. Is there any special camera used in this?

Born and raised in Hawaii, Shiraki received his first camera at the early age of twelve, a vintage 1960s Nikon SLR from his grandfather.
