Feature Cars: Ray and Tony Elia’s Holden VK Commodores


12 Nov

About the only thing better than one tough, tubbed HDT-style VK Commodore is two and between brothers Ray and Tony Elia, that’s exactly what I got to photograph a few months ago for the return issue of Street Machine Commodores! Ray’s white machine is blown, while Tony’s Blue Meanie replica BT1 boasts a wicked Injection Perfection trumpet setup.

Feature Car: Adam Cleary’s 427ci 1957 Buick Special


11 Jul

Some cars take a while to be truly ready for a photo shoot. For Adam Cleary’s incredible, air-bagged and big-block powered 1957 Buick Special, that period was a little over two years from the first time I called him to the morning we did the photo shoot. When you do a build this extensive, sometimes there are just some niggling issues that take time to resolve. I like to think the wait was worth it. It was featured in the June 2018 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Manuel Vassallo’s 1958 Volkswagen Beetle


01 Mar

Manuel Vassallo’s retro-chic, patina-loving 1958 Volkswagen beetle is the real deal. No faux rust or patina here. It’s all legit, weather beaten history on wheels and was featured in the Feb-Apr 2018 issue of VW Magazine Australia.

Feature Car: Smith Concepts’ Ford Model-A Hotrod


26 Feb

My photo shoot on Kyle Smith’s radical and retro Model-A Ford hotrod for issue nine of Forged magazine was actually the second time I’d photographed the car. The first time I laid eyes on the slammed, chopped and channelled Ford was several years ago when I shot the original iteration of it for another magazine. Once naturally aspirated and chunky metalflake orange, Kyle bought the car and truly made it his own. Issue nine of Forged is still available right now on newsstands nationwide.

Cover Car: Travis Wells’ Honda Accord Wagon


08 Dec

My shoot on Travis Wells’ crazy Honda Accord station wagon made it on to the front cover of the last issue of Incar Entertainment, which was on sale last month. Jammed full of audio gear and featuring full airbag suspension, scissor doors and custom paint, it’s an insane machine.

Feature Car: Ian Hallett’s Holden Rodeo Minitruck


13 May

Here is a small selection of images taken from a shoot we did recently for BAGGED magazine in Australia. It’s coming out in issue 8, due any day now. The shots were taken in Newcastle, NSW Australia in a mozzie-infested industrial area. As soon as the sun went down we were attacked!

There’s very minimal artificial lighting in these shots. In fact, only one flash was used on the back end to fill in some light in a couple of the shots. The rest are all using ambient light in the late afternoon with some wonderful cloud formations. Most of the post processing is done in Lightroom, including any filtering in the sky

You can download FREE 1280res desktop wallpapers of these images by clicking on them. Enjoy and be sure to pick up the next issue of BAGGED to check out the full shoot. CLICK HERE to view the gallery.
