Feature Car: Clint Kelly’s Holden LJ Torana


06 Nov

I took a long trip out to the Central West of NSW earlier this year and shot a bunch of cars for Street Machine. It was a great weekend and I got to meet a bunch of great people at the same time.
One of the cars I shot was Clint Kelly’s 6L LS-powered Holden LJ Torana that had previously been featured when it was powered by an immaculate straight-six.

Model Shoot: Jessica Pridham for The Chop Shop


21 May

The guys at The Chop Shop in Gosford on NSW’s Central Coast called on us to shoot some promotional images for their 2013 MotorEx campaign. You may recall we photographed their promo stuff for the 2012 event (SEE IT HERE). Naturally, we jumped at the chance to work with the Chop Shop guys again, if for no other reason than to see all their awesome automotive projects up close.

Melbourne’s Jessica Pridham flew up for the shoot this time around. It was also great to try some different lighting options and setups using the same location. Interested photographers can read about our lighting setups and EXIF data on the images at our Flickr page. Everyone can enjoy wallpaper-sized versions there, too.

Performance Garage Photo Shoots

Performance Garage Photo Shoots     Performance Garage Photo Shoots

Performance Garage magazine launched in early 2012 through Express Publications and Hosking Industries was there. In the ensuing 18 months or so we’ve shot a number of incredible sheds, garages and workshops for the magazine, capturing the places and the people who use them. We thought it was high time we uploaded some select samples for all of you playing at home.

All the images are of cars and places within NSW Australia, primarily Newcastle and Sydney. Workshops like Ziggy’s Hot Rods and Lowe Fabrications are joined by private man caves and garages owned by guys including the talented Dave Hart, John Stevens, Murray Forman and Brian Apap. Be sure to check this image set again in the future when we add more samples from published shoots.

Feature Car: Paul Lonergran’s Insane 1928 Dodge Rat Rod


04 Feb

Issue 20 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Genuine Hot Rods) is on sale now and boasts four photo shoots and feature stories by Hosking Industries, including one on Paul Lonergran’s insane 1928 Dodge Rat Rod, pictured here. Paul’s beastie has been built on the cheap, using parts from around his shop and home collection and Paul claims he did it all for a measly $42!

The phantom ’28 Dodge is powered by a high-revving 327ci small-block Chevrolet V8 and the car features more patina than a rusty boat anchor with corrosion and rust at every turn. Rat rods don’t come much more genuinely ratty than Paul’s. Who’d have it any other way?!

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 Bike: Evolution’s Custom 1973 Iron Head Sportster


07 Jan

We shot this gorgeous custom 1973 Harley Davidson Iron Head Sportster for a new client, Heavy Duty magazine. You can see the entire feature and accompanying story in issue 126, on-sale now.

Built by Evolution Custom Industries – check out their supercharged WL that we shot in 2012 HERE – the bike features a custom rigid rear end and that striking none-blacker appearance that’s highlighted by all the brass fittings and discoloured stainless exhaust (done that way on purpose, naturally).

Feature Car: Dave Hart’s 1953 Chevrolet Lead Sled Sedan


15 Oct

Along with Dave Hart’s awesome 1933 Ford tourer that we showed you last week, we also shot his 1953 Chev’ lead sled for the same issue of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine (aka Modified Street Hot Rods), which goes on sale any day now. Dave also built this machine himself in the shed at home, including the weekend roof chop and long, lapping flame job.

The Chevrolet is used as Dave’s wife’s daily, proving once and for all that car like this shouldn’t be kept in the shed. Backing it up is a 2009 350ci small-block and T350 and as you can see from the pics, this beast is visually loud. Clearly it’s the way Dave likes things to be.

As always, we’ve got a selection of desktop wallpaper-sized images for you to view and download for your own computer. For the photogs, you’ll find our EXIF data on each image as well. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to jump.
