Cover Car: Manuel’s 1971 Holden HQ GTS 350 Monaro


16 Aug

I had the pleasure of not only shooting Manuel’s pristine primarily factory-original 1971 Holden HQ GTS 350 Monaro for Man and Machine magazine, but also shooting it at the HARS facility at Albion Park Airport amongst all the classic aircraft! What a combination! You can see the whole shoot and read the excellent history by Rob Luck in the latest issue on newsstands now.

Our very first automotive video footage has hit the web this week via Street Machine magazine. We photographed Greg South’s 1000rwhp twin-turbo LS HQ Holden for the magazine and went back the next morning to shoot some motion. While we can’t take credit for the edit (unintentional rhyme… sorry!), we hope you enjoy the footage!

On newsstands this week is issue 137 of Extreme Street magazine, which features four of our photo shoots and feature stories inside, with our cover shoot on James Tait’s awesome HQ Monaro on the cover! James’ Holden is powered by a 454ci LSX-based V8, aided by a big turbo for ultimate tyre-frying power. And as you can see from the pics, the car is no slouch in that regard.

Feature Car: Ross’ HQ Holden One Tonner


13 Nov

We photographed Ross’ tough, nitrous-injected HQ Holden one-tonner utility on the Northern Beaches of Sydney back in 2011. It’s powered by a Holden V8 with a big direct-port nitrous setup that you just know gives this ute a big kick in the pants. It’s full of all the tough gear;  right down to the utilitarian Kirkey race seat that must be hell to endure when cruising on the street.

We’ve got six FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to download and as always, you’ll find our photos on Flickr complete with EXIF data and lighting information. CLICK HERE to view the entire gallery or on the thumbnails below:

Feature Car: Mick Molloy’s Holden HQ Tonner


24 May

Hey! We just realised we hit the 300 post mark with our last feature car update! Hooray for us.

Anyway, Custom Utes issue 45 is due to hit the stands soon and contains a tonne of Hosking Industries feature car photography, feature stories and coverage of the 2011 Taren Point Rat Day. One of the feature cars inside is Mick Molloy’s sweet 1973 Holden HQ ‘tonner’, pictured here.

Powered by a hard-revving 327ci small-block Chev’ V8, the bright orange ute has been a collaborative effort between Mick and some of his employees, with the end goal to drag race the Holden and destroy tyres at the annual Summernats festival in Canberra. You can read all about the caged machine in issue 45 of Custom Utes, on sale soon.

While this was an outdoor shoot in full sun-to-light cloud, we still made use of our Canon Speedlite flashes and strobist fans will find lighting information on our Flickr page, as well as the usual EXIF data. CLICK HERE to view and download six FREE desktop wallpaper images!
