Feature Car: Mark Sullivan’s Pontiac Firebird


02 Feb

My photo shoot on Mark Sullivan’s slammed, big-block powered Pontiac Firebird made it into the January 2017 issue of Street Machine which was on sale last month. Mark is a prolific self builder and did almost all the work on the car himself in his home workshop on the NSW Central Coast.

Cover Car: Dimitri’s 800rwhp Holden VL Calais


10 Jan

I made a number of trips down to the nation’s capital in 2016 and on one of those trips I was lucky enough to get Dimetri’s turbocharged LS-powered VL Calais in front of my lens. The car graces the front cover of this month’s issue of Street Commodores and should blow a few minds. Making some 800rwhp, the car goes just as good as it looks and he’s not afraid to let loose in it.

Short Shots: Hosking Ind’s Automotive Portfolio Video on Youtube


28 Jan

We put together a short, one-minute video of our favourite 25 automotive images and posted it to Youtube last week. It acts as a kind of portfolio showcasing our best work in a time frame that is unlikely to bore anyone to death or infuriate someone trying to navigate our 400+ posts here or 5000 images on Flickr!

Enjoy!

Feature Car: Dennis Legg’s 1964 EH Holden


17 Jan

The latest issue of Holden Heroes magazine went on sale this week, featuring our photo shoot on Dennis Legg’s tough 1964 EH Holden sedan, known as FAT640. You can find it at all good newsagencies now.

This shoot marks the second time we’d used a light painting technique to capture the main exterior shots on a feature car shoot and we’re pretty happy with the results. We’ve now used this technique on subsequent shoots, refining the process each time. So, unfortunately, for the strobist fans, the only shot to use flashes is the engine bay shot, but we’ve included the lighting info on that one for anyone keen.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Knitted Wool Stock Images


23 Jan

These are the last of our series on wool and knitted wool texture images and stock photos. You could say they’ve been a progression from raw wool right through to the end product, but that probably won’t make much difference to those making good use of the images.

The scarves feature a combination of garter and stocking stitch with the majority of those shown using pure wool or wool/alpaca blend wool, with the pink knitted piece being acrylic. All were shot with a Canon 7D / 24-70mm f2.8L and lit by bouncing a Speedlite flash off a nearby wall. All our texture images remain in their original high-resolution format.

Simply CLICK HERE to view the gallery of six images or right-click on the thumbnails below to download the images direct. As always, these are FREE for commercial and personal use, however you may not resell or redistribute or claim them as your own. Enjoy!
