Feature Car: Scott Bamford’s 1932 Ford Hi-Boy


23 Jul

Our photo shoot and feature story on Scott Bamford’s tough, supercharged 1932 Ford Hi-Boy is out now in the latest issue of Cruzin magazine. Some may recall the photo shoot we did on Scott and his dad’s hot rods way back in 2011 for Heavy Duty Hot Rods. You can see some pics from that shoot HERE.

Since then, Scott has rebuilt the 327ci SBC which now makes 624hp, thanks in part to the towering 6/71 blower on top. Be sure to read all about the car in issue 165 of Cruzin.

Feature Car: Barry’s 1932 Ford Coupe


25 Oct

We shot Barry’s sweet 1932 Ford hot rod coupe in early 2011 and though it high time we brought you all some 1680-resolution desktop wallpapers to enjoy on your own PC or Mac. It’s a classic Ford-powered affair with plenty of subtle details, but nothing outlandish to distract your attention from the old-school cool feel he’s achieved here.

As always, you’ll find our photos on Flickr complete with EXIF data and lighting information, however these three shots were all shot using nothing my Mother Nature’s wonderful lighting from above in the late afternoon. Sorry to all the strobist fans out there.

Feature Car: Scott and Gary Bamford’s Ford Hot Rods


02 May

We’ve heard of father/son projects before and we’ve even seen some great ones, but this pair of Fords – namely a 1928 roadster and 1932 5-window coupe – take the cake. Owned by Scott and Gary Bamford, these sweet Fords are enough to make anyone salivate just a little. Father Gary started his black roadster way back in the 1980s, but Scott’s build was much shorter and you can read all about the story on these two in the latest issue (14) of Heavy Duty Hot Rods, on-sale now.

Gary’s roadster is powered by an N/A 302ci Windsor V8 and is a very classic affair. Scott’s ’32 coupe is powered by a stonking great blown small-block 327ci GMC small-block making an estimated 600hp; however that’s untested at this stage. Like his dad’s rod, the coupe is built around a totally classic formula and it works, as the pictures prove.

All the exterior shots were done with natural light only, however strobist fans will find lighting information for the detail shots and the portrait on our Flickr page, where you can also download FREE desktop wallpaper versions of the shots for your own enjoyment. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below.

26 Apr

Issue 14 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods is just about to hit the stands and contains two photos shoots from Hosking Industries, including this one on Scott Thomas’ wicked 1932 Ford Tudor, pictured below. Scott bought the car sight unseen from the USA a couple of years ago, but luckily for him, the car arrived as described!

The ’32 Ford is powered by a classic 350ci/T350 combo and is dripping with 1990’s stylistic appointments like the scalloped two-tone paint and grey tweed trim. Despite its age, it’s in immaculate condition and you can read all about Scott and the Tudor in issue 14 of the magazine, on sale soon.

For strobist fans, you’ll find all our lighting information on our Flickr page, as well as EXIF data. CLICK HERE to view and download six FREE desktop wallpaper images of the car or click on the thumbnails below.

Feature Car: John Walker’s 1932 Ford Coupe ‘TUF32F’


16 Sep

Today we bring you a selection of six images taken during our photo shoot on John Walker’s brilliant pale yellow 1932 Ford coupe hot rod TUF32F for Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine in Australia. John is a long term member of his hot rod club, the Drag-Ens and has owned and built many rods over his life time.

John built this ’32 himself in the shed at home and drove the wheels off of it during our shoot. As you can see from the photos, it sports a classic combination of small-block Chevrolet V8 full fenders and choice of wheels. You can read all about it in issue 10 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods, on sale soon.

Feature Car: Buddy Isaac’s 1932 Ford Roadster ‘BUD350’


12 Sep

A selection of four images from a recent photo shoot we did on Buddy Isaac’s blindingly bright orange 1932 Ford roadster for Heavy Duty Hotrods in Australia.

Buddy bought the Ford-powered rod in a complete state, however he went about refinishing it and restoring it to his own exacting standards. With a long history in the Australian modified car scene – particularly with in the small-car scene – we’re not surprised he couldn’t leave it alone!

Feature Car: 496ci 1932 Ford for Heavy Duty Hotrods Magazine


12 Jan

Heavy Duty Hotrods magazine, published by Express Publications, have published my photo shoot on Ben Moglia’s purple 1932 Ford hotrod. It’s a mean machine, with a 496ci BBC V8 lurking up front and some meaty rubber out back.

We shot it near Ben’s home town south of Sydney using an array of Canon Speedlite flash equipment and the main exterior shots are composites from four to six images to get the lighting exactly right.
