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!).

Cover Car: Owen Rice’s Holden CV8 Monaro


05 Feb

I photographed Owen Rice’s beautiful Holden CV8 Monaro burnout car for the front cover of the return issue of Street Machine Commodores. This is so much more than a simple skid car. It’s also a fully fledged show car, complete with custom interior, detailed undercarriage and smooth engine bay. There is detail everywhere! Oh, and it makes almost 1200hp from its 400ci, 8/71-blown stroker.

Feature Car: Dave & Sarah Cowie’s HJ GTS Monaro


24 Jul

David and Sarah Cowie’s pristine LS-swapped Holden HJ GTS Monaro was given a small feature in the June issue of Street Machine magazine. With a clean LS1 Conversion, flawless interior and a tough stance, it’s a largely home-built affair and the paint is to die for – a job David also handled himself.

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.

Featured Video: Peter Sharp’s Widebody HQ Holden Monaro


03 Apr

I was lucky enough to head up to Taree on NSW’s Mid-North Coast to shoot some video on the development of Peter Sharp’s wide body coachbuilt Holden Monaro for Street Machine magazine. Almost entirely hand crafted at Down Town Kustoms, it’s nothing short of a rolling piece of art, as you’ll see from the video!

Feature Car: Peter Surace’s 1968 Holden HK Monaro


29 Dec

Our photo shoot on Peter Surace’s 1968 Holden HK Monaro made it into the last issue of Street Machine, which was on sale last month. This thing might look like your average restomod classic muscle car on the outside, but pop the bonnet and you’ll find a 1000hp twin-turbo LS engine transplant!

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.
