Feature Car: David Galea’s 1970 Holden Monaro


06 Nov

Thanks to COVID-19 and having our first baby, 2020 has been a pretty slow year for photo shoots. However, I did get commissioned to shoot David Galea’s gorgeous and ballsy 1970 Holden Monaro for the October 2020 issue of Street Machine.
Boasting a Motown 400ci SBC, Powerglide and narrowed 9in rear end, the car is old-school, but not stuck in the past. Smooth and slammed, but not stock.

Feature Car: Lee Payne’s 1971 Chevrolet Camaro


14 Jul

Not many people can lay claim to a first-time build of the quality that this 1971 Chevrolet Camaro exhibits. From front to back, top and the bottom, Lee Payne’s second-gen’ Chevrolet Camaro is all class (and plenty of grunt).
The car landed a coveted Summernats Top 60 spot as a reward for all his hard work – much of which was done in the shed at home with minimal tools and plenty of hard graft.
It runs a 540ci Dart-based big-block, backed by a T400 and a braced 9in. Dressed in a unique Miami Blue hue complete with ’70s-perfect vinyl roof, the coupe is damned-near perfect and appeared in the June 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Jovan Batar’s 1984 XE Ford Falcon


11 Feb

There’s now doubting that 1980s Ford Falcons are booming in popularity right now. I must have photographed four or five in the last couple of years that have all been stand-out quality and Jovan Batar’s 1984 XE Ford Falcon is no exception.
Boasting a 369ci Dart-based stroker, flawless Galaxy Grey metallic paint and a period-looking interior treatment, it’s all top notch stuff for Jovan Batar’s Ford Falcon. But it’s the attention to detail that really makes it shine.
The crazy thing is, that Jovan wasn’t even intending to build the Falcon to anywhere near the level that he has, because he’s already building an elite-level 1965 XP Falcon coupe!
The car was featured in the January issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Tomi Vatavuk’s 1974 Ford XB Falcon


20 Nov

If there’s a nicer XB Ford Falcon out there, I certainly haven’t photographed it! I got to photograph Tomi’s incredible ‘SOKOL’ Falcon sedan for the October issue of Street Machine. Perhaps the best thing about the XB – which includes a custom rear splitter/air dam, smoothed engine bay and plethora of custom billet and carbon fibre pieces – is that Tomi was able to do a lot of the build himself!

On top of being able to hang out with such a nice car, and a nice owner (who also happened to play guitar and like heavy music!), was being able to shoot the car in such a clean workshop. I personally have never seen such a clean work space. Especially given that besides handling custom work, it also serves as a regular servicing workshop. Look at that floor!

Feature Car: Jason Pellett’s Holden HT Kingswood


22 Oct

Jason Pellett built this pristine 1970 HT Holden Kingswood as a tribute to his late brother Michael. Powered by a 308ci Holden V8 within a clinically clean engine bay, the clean black and white theme is carried throughout the car, which is a great cruiser for Jason, his wife Ashley and twin boys. It was featured in the September 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Peter Robson’s Holden VE Ute ‘UDLO5E’


13 Aug

Late-model Commodores haven’t come in for the same level of customisation as most older models… well, with exceptions. Like Peter Robson’s crazy VE Commodore ute for example.
With a big turbo on its 403ci stroker, suicide doors, custom trim, smooth engine bay and 24x12in billets under its tubbed arse… this is one very custom late-model Commodore and it was featured in the August 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Angus’ 604ci Ford Falcon GT


25 Jul

My photo shoot and feature story on this brutal, yet refined 604ci Ford Falcon GT clone appeared in the July 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine. The bodywork and brilliant electric blue metallic paint had to be seen in person to really understand how flawless it was. A gorgeous car, for sure!

Feature Car: Zoran Krstevski’s Ford XE Falcon


15 May

Zoran Krstevski’s Ford XE Falcon appeared in the May 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine. This thing was truly flawless. The bodywork alone was so straight I couldn’t quite believe it. Powered by an ex-NASCAR 393ci Clevo, the smooth and subtle XE has the brawn to match the beauty.

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: Jason Spiteri’s EH Holden


29 Jan

I had the pleasure of photographing Jason Spiteri’s tough-as-nails 1964 EH Holden for the January 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine. Powered by a stout 427ci Dart SBC, the car is slammed in the weeds and ready to destroy tyres at a moment’s notice.
