CF - What is your name and what do you do?
Patrick - My name is Patrick Krupa and I'm from the metro-Detroit suburbs. I'm a student dual enrolled at Henry Ford Community College for Electrical Tech Engineering, Pre-Engineering and University of Toledo for Electrical Engineering. I consider myself as a freelance photographer for local newspapers.
CF - How did you find CoolFords?
Patrick - CoolFords.com was a sponsor during the Michigan Gumball Rally 2011 for Team # 96 Pony Boyz. I sent over a photo of a Mustang via Facebook and we been in contact ever since.
CF - What Ford Motor Company vehicle do you currently own or wish you could have?
Patrick - I recently picked up a 1998 Ford Ranger with a 3.0L V6 as a work truck for hauling. Wish list: The 2012 Ford Shelby Super Snakes and 2013 Taurus are looking sharp.
CF - What made you interested in photography?
Patrick - My Grandfather was into photography back in his day. I look up to him and it carried over as I got into college. My freshmen year of college I had a couple friends that would shoot as a hobby and I randomly went out one day and bought a DSLR. Soon after, photography become a new lifestyle for me.
CF - Random question! If you were to meet the CEO of Ford, Alan Mullaly, what would you suggest as the next plan of action for Ford Motor Company?
Patrick -Go green but still keep the American muscle attitude.
CF - Would you rather go drifting with Ken Block in the Fiesta or drag racing in a Cobra Jet?
Patrick - Definitely drag racing in a Cobra Jet. Dare I say, drifting in a Cobra Jet?!
CF - If another one of our fans wanted to become a professional photographer, what is one good word of advice for them?
Patrick - Just keep shooting. Take your camera everywhere you go and connect with people. One of my little philosophies in life is: It's all about who you know and what you can do with what you know.
CF - You just won a brand new 2013 Mustang GT but can only choose between "Gotta Have it Green" and "School Bus Yellow" what would you take?
Patrick - Gotta Have it Green. I seen the electric green at the Detroit North American Auto Show and it made it to my top 3 color picks for the Mustang. Along with Grabber Blue and Performance White.
CF - What inspires your photography?
Patrick - Detroit. The city has been through tough times and has so much to offer from a photographers view point.
Thank you for your time, Patrick! Watch out, CoolFords fans, you may be next!
