Charlie Saliba's 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38

My photo shoot on Charlie Saliba’s 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38 was featured in the September 2018 issue of Street Machine. The 265ci Hemi six-powered coupe took a long time to get to this point, but the results of Charlie’s hard labour is evident no matter where you look and you can read all about it in the Sept. 2018 issue.

Cover Car: Bill Skyrm’s 1969 Valiant VF Pacer


20 Feb

I had the pleasure of photographing Bill Skyrm’s immaculate 1969 Valiant VF Pacer sedan late in 2017 for the cover of a local magazine. It still runs the iconic slant six, backed by a Borg Warner 3-speed manual and makes about 150hp.

Feature Car: Jim Cemal’s 1977 Chrysler CL Charger


17 Nov

Our photo shoot on Jim Cemal’s immaculate, tubbed 1977 Chrysler CL Charger made it into last month’s issue of Street Machine, which was on sale last month. Jim actually did a lot of the work on the car himself, including the super clean rear wheel tub install. How’s that incredible ’70s interior!?

Feature Car: Dave Kracht’s 1940 Ford De Luxe


31 Oct

Here’s a selection of six photos from our recent photo shoot on Dave Kracht’s incredible 1940 Ford De Luxe, also known as a Sloper. The car has been in Dave’s family for almost 50 years and you can read all about it’s journey in issue 11 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine in Australia.

We shot the car on a smoky afternoon in Katoomba in the NSW Blue Mountains, where Dave runs a successful motor trimming shop. The car is unusual in that it was an Australian built model with a roof line unique to this country. It’s also powered by a Lexus V8.

While the detail shots use Speedlite flashes, the exterior shots were all done with natural and available light sources. Strobist info is available on related images. Check out the photos on our Flickr page by CLICKING HERE or on the thumbnails below.

Image Gallery: 127 Images from MotorEx 2010 in Sydney


26 Jul

MotorEx 2010 in SydneyMotorEx has long been one of the biggest and most impressive indoor car shows in Australia. Sadly though, the shine had worn off the event in recent years due in part to the influence of both the former owner and the hotrod club that controlled much of what went on and how the event was laid out. Thankfully that all changed last year when MotorActive bought the show – lock, stock and barrel.

MotorActive is owned by Bruce Morrison and distributes a number of high profile product lines in Australia; including Meguiar’s, House of Kolor automotive finishes and Liqui-Moly. For years, Meguiar’s had been naming-rights sponsors of the MotorEx. So it made sense that MotorActive should take it on. With Owen Webb – one of the country’s top elite show car judges – taking the reins of the show, it returned this year with a renewed vigour and vitality that it’d been long lacking.

Walking into the expansive dome, the quality of the vehicles – as well as the quantity – was immediately apparent. For a few years past, most of the main action took place only in the front of the venue, with the rear halls consisting pretty boring car club displays of restored and classic cars. While there was always a smattering of modified cars ‘out back’, the quality drop was like falling off a cliff as you walked out of the main dome area. Not so in 2010!

This year, the quality from the front to the back of the full-sized venue was excellent with all makes and models well represented. Whether you were into the rods, muscle cars, late-model muscle, bikes and choppers or high-tech Jap’ stuff – MotorEx had you covered with some of the best examples in the country on display.

Owen Webb did an amazing job of pulling all the cars to the event and being the show’s big anniversary, organised for all past winners of the show to come back and compete against one another again. It was truly a spectacle to behold and the punters lapped it up.
