Private Shoots

While the bulk of our work is in photographing the East Coast’s top modified cars and bikes for magazines, I also offer private photo shoots.

Private shoots can be adjusted to suit most budgets. I can simply shoot more or less, depending on what you need or want. For instance, if you just want to have a couple of nice prints on your wall or a poster with some inset detail shots across the top or bottom with a big main image, I can do the photo shoot to suit, meaning I’m not spending all day taking photos or on the computer later, costing you more.

So, I offer packages from full magazine-style shoots right down to just a handful of perfectly finished photos. Contact Me today for a quote on your car or bike!

Where will we do the shoot? I’m based in the Hunter Region of NSW and have recently had to restrict my private work to the general Newcastle/Maitland and surrounding areas including Port Stephens and Lake Maquarie. I can also work with you on Central Coast shoots with some notice.

Different cars and bikes need different lighting to make them look their best. I’ll work with you to try and shoot your machine at that time. Generally speaking, late afternoon is usually the best time for most vehicles. So factor this into your plans. If the weather turns out to be wet or an evening shoot just isn’t possible, locating somewhere under cover in your local area is the way to fly. I work well under cover!

If your pride and joy is good enough for you to want to immortalise it print, there’s a good chance a magazine will be interested in it, too. When you contact us to enquire about a shoot, I’ll ask for some happy snaps, showing us the different parts of the car or bike. If I reckon it’s got a shot, I’ll approach some magazines on your behalf. If one of them commissions it, I can then shoot your machine at a drastically reduced rate! How good is that!?
