Feature Cars: Ferrari FF and Maserati GranCabrio Sport


31 Jan

We had the unexpected and rare pleasure of shooting a pair of Italian exotics before Xmas 2012 for a new magazine, published by Citrus Media. PGA Australia (yes, the golf mob) have a new title out called ‘Escapes’ that concentrates on nice things for well-to-do golf fans to do while they’re not working; like visiting other fancy golf courses or taking exotic holidays.

Being this close and intimate with a pair of luscious ladies like these was an exceptional experience – the Maserati’s V8 high-revving sounds insane. Being a golf magazine, we decided to shoot the pair at Sydney’s Coast Golf Club. Shooting on grass is not something we’d ever done before and felt a little uncomfortable about it as a result, but the theme perfectly suited the magazine.

Thanks to the Coast Golf Club and Ateco Automotive for their assistance making this shoot happen. Be sure to pick up a copy of PGA Australia Escapes!

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.

Blind Faith: Turkish Singer Sets New Blind Land Speed Record


13 Apr

We recently brought you a story of Hein Wagner, a blind South African man who successfully completed a road circuit with the aid of a co-pilot helping to navigate. Wagner had also previously become the world’s fastest blind person by travelling at over 200mph with the aid of a co-pilot.

Well, it seems Hein’s remarkable bravery has inspired others to give it a red hot go, too. We recently heard of a Turkish pop singer named Metin Senturk setting a new unassisted world record for the fastest speed set by a blind person, taking his Ferrari 430 to a top speed of 292.89km/h (182mph).

With his helper halping to navigate from a support vehicle driving behind, Senturk broke the record on an airstrip in Eastern Turkey. Senturk was quoted as saying that the run, “was really hard, like a dance with death”, in true dramatic pop fashion. According to a news story on Autoblog, the record was previously held by a British banker who’s best was 284km/h. Amazing.
