Feature Car: Dave Steele’s Holden HQ Monaro


29 Apr

My shoot on Dave Steele’s immaculate HQ LS Monaro was featured in the April 2019 issue of Street Machine. It was the first time I’d light painted a car in a studio environment and I’m pretty chuffed with the way it came out – particularly being a white car in a white room.
Powered by a stout 427ci Dart-based SBC, the car is heavy with attention to detail and sits with its smooth arse well into the weeds (which I love!).

Feature Car: V Resto Garage’s 1970 Ford Falcon


17 Apr

Don’t be fooled by the typical GT-clone appearance of this brand new build from V Resto Garage – there’s nothing typical about the fit, finish and performance of this 1970 Ford Falcon. Under the bonnet lies a 514ci monster that’s housed within a flawlessly smooth engine bay. That same level of detail weaves throughout the car and combined with the 22in Simmons FR rims (12in wide at the back) and you’ve got one hell of a muscle car! It was featured in the April 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Jason Sandner’s Holden LX Torana


14 Nov

Jason Sandner’s incredibly-detailed Holden LX Torana appeared in the November 2018 issue of Street Machine. It is the second time I’ve been able to get up close and personal with the car and it never fails to blow my tiny mind. Jason has done an incredible job of building the car, which is highly detailed, both on top and bottom. powered by a 378ci alloy Donovan SBC, it’s also potent!

Feature Car: Ben Brown’s 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle


05 Mar

Despite a rough start thanks to a half-asses reality TV project build quality, Ben brown turned things around and ended up with a sweet, blown and billet Chevy Chevelle all his own. The 383ci SBC-powered coupe was featured in the January issue of Street Machine and will appear in Super Chevy soon.

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: Mark Sullivan’s 1965 Ford F100


11 Jan

I had the pleasure of photographing Mark Sullivan’s latest creation for the December 2017 issue of Street Machine. This marked the third vehicle I’ve shot that Mark has built entirely by himself in his home workshop and like the rest, this truck was awesome. Perhaps a little controversial, the Ford is powered by a SBC!

Feature Car: Todd Bulkeley’s Datsun 1600 SS Coupe


04 Dec

Another of the vehicles I got to photograph on my trip into NSW’s central west earlier this year was Todd Bulkeley’s amazing Datsun 1600 SSS coupe, as featured in Street Machine. Todd was injured in an accident in the late ’90s that left him in a wheelchair and keen eyes will see the hand controls in the cockpit. The FJ20-powered coupe was good enough to find itself in the Elite hall at Summernats!

Feature Car: Jim Ayoubi’s Ford XC Falcon Hardtop


17 Nov

This is the second time I’ve photographed Jim Ayoubi’s incredible show-stopping XC Ford Falcon Hardtop. Most photographers probably aren’t lucky enough to get this close to cars of this calibre once. The 770hp, 408ci, 8/71-blown coupe is truly a work of rolling art and was featured in the November issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Aaron Fitzpatrick’s Datsun 1600 (Shoot 2)


01 Nov

Not only did I get lucky enough to photograph Aaron Fitzpatrick’s Datsun 1600 once, but I was asked to shoot it twice for two different magazines on the same trip down to Canberra earlier this year! I’ve already posted some images from my photo shoot for Street Machine magazine HERE. Now you can see some of the images from my shoot for Perth’s Forged magazine. It’s been on sale for a while now, but you can still find it on newsstands nationwide.

This beast runs a dry-sumped, 800hp FJ20 combo, with tubs and a cage – it’s a full-house race version of his Summernats-winning 1600, with a personality all its own.
