Cover Car: Peter Sharp's SHQRP Holden HQ Monaro

Peter Sharp’s Holden HQ Monaro, known as SHQRP, has been in the build now for around a decade. I photographed the car in bare metal around six years ago for its owner on a trip to the team at Down Town Kustoms. The wait has been worth it.
This is no ordinary HQ Monaro. While its front end may be divisive, there’s no disputing the incredible innovation and attention to detail to be found no matter where you look. From the exterior with its coach-built steel wide body to the custom chassis, floor pan and airbag suspension… right through to its award-winning interior that uses bits from a late-model Commodore – Peter Sharp’s Holden HQ Monaro is truly one of a kind and a piece of automotive art that’s been built to drive.
There’s simply too much to list properly, suffice it to say that you can see and read all about it in the July 2021 issue of Street Machine.

Cover Car: Dean Rickard's 1969 Holden HT Monaro

Car owners often ask me the same question when I’m shooting their own cars: “What is the best car you’ve ever photographed?”
It’s a ridiculously hard question to answer definitively. The best how? Best engine bay, best paint, best stance, best trim, best race car, best ‘cool’ factor, best… you get the idea. A lot of cars have been amazing for different reasons.
perhaps that was until I got tasked with photographing the latest creation from Down Town Kustoms in Taree, NSW. Dean Rickard’s 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS is off-the-charts in just about every regard. The bodywork still numbs my brain to this day; the interior is somehow understated, elegant and show-conquering all at the same time; the engine bay is to die for despite there being no blower or turbos in sight and the undercarriage is a work of art, even though it isn’t all glossy or chromed.
If you can find one, pick up a copy of the January 2021 issue of Street Machine to read the whole incredible story.

Feature Car: David Galea's 1970 Holden Monaro

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: Dave Steele's Holden HQ Monaro

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

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.
