Cover Car: Owen Rice’s Holden CV8 Monaro


05 Feb

I photographed Owen Rice’s beautiful Holden CV8 Monaro burnout car for the front cover of the return issue of Street Machine Commodores. This is so much more than a simple skid car. It’s also a fully fledged show car, complete with custom interior, detailed undercarriage and smooth engine bay. There is detail everywhere! Oh, and it makes almost 1200hp from its 400ci, 8/71-blown stroker.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Martin Hermida again after our photo shoot on his Baldwin Motion-themed Nova SS appeared in Gasoline magazine. This time we headed to his suburban home to photograph his entire muscle car collection for Performance Garage magazine – as you can see from the photos, this numbers five – all in his small front yard!

Photo Book: Automotive Photography Vol. 2 Now Available


03 Feb

Automotive Photography Vol. 2

To celebrate Hosking Industries’ fourth birthday, we knuckled down and finally finished the second volume of our Automotive Photography series of photo book, imaginatively called ‘Automotive Photography Vol. 2 2011-2013’.

It’s simply created through Blurb.com, but comes in at 160-pages like Vol. 1 and features a hard cover, dust jacket and Blurb’s top line of paper. It’s not cheap, but there’s nothing like having a real book of your own work in the house to look through and look back on down the track. While we don’t expect anyone else to want one at around AUS$200 a copy, you can have a look through the entire book for free by CLICKING HERE or on the image above. Hope you all like it!

Feature Bike: Nathan Moses’ 1950 Harley Davidson


27 Feb

Our photo shoot and feature story on Nathan Moses’ cool retro 1950 Harley Davidson appeared in issue 20 of Wild Aussie Choppers (aka Ultimate Choppers). Nathan bought the bike from the USA and shipped it over for less than he could have built it for here. He tells us that, luckily, the bike came as good as, or better than advertised. Nice one!

Boasting a ’49 Springer front end, 84ci stroker twin and enough retro style to win anyone over, the bike enjoys an eight-page spread in the magazine. Be sure to check it out, on-sale now!

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information and EXIF data on each image’s caption, too. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

Feature Car: Leo Leonidas’ HDT VN Lexcen ‘RARE’


02 Nov

Upon first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking this was an HDT Aero based on the usual Holden VN Commodore. However, you’d be wrong. This is Leo Leonidas’ HDT Aero, based upon a Toyota Lexcen and running a V6 instead of the usual injected 5L V8.

Young Leo found this car sitting at a wrecking yard, dumped by the original and sole owner after doing around 300,000kms. As it turned out, the car was a totally legit specimen – one of only four ever built for a Toyota dealership in the 1990s. You can read all about the incredible story of the car and Leo’s almost single-handed restoration in issue 189 of Street Commodores, on sale this week.

This shoot was actually our first ever commissioned car photo shoot, performed in 2010. We’re pretty proud of how it came out, considering we’d only done one short test shoot with the flash gear a few days prior. We hope you like what you see and remember that you can download FREE desktop wallpaper versions of the six images from our Flickr page by CLICKING HERE or on the thumbs below.
