Sandown Track Day April 2012

Awesome day out there today, weather seemed perfect. Great to meet some of you too, and thanks for checking the page out (If you came here via a card)

Please note, I’m pretty big on quality over quantity. **Any shot that was decent will be posted** If I shot your car and it didn’t make it into the set then either the shot was rubbish, or there was a focus issue or you were picking your nose, etc! I do my best to get a bit of everything, but if you don’t see your car then my apologies! Next time 🙂

Mighty Car Mods Melbourne Meet- April 2012

with 5 comments

Went down to check out the Mighty Car Mods meet held in Southbank, Melbourne today.

A fairly big turnout, was good to meet Marty and have a quick chat (He was on the Micra forums prior to the MCM days) as well as put some faces to names.

Some very tough cars out as well. Good to see such a culmination of the car community there – pretty much something for everyone – Japan, Australia, euros, old models, new models.

Here’s some photos from the meet. As usual, enjoy! Full Set is here.

SAU-Vic January Photoshoot

Here’s a selection of images that I took from the SAUVic cruise that ended up in Newport yesterday. Lots of nice cars and was good to have a chat with the owners.

Had a bit of a play with some lights as well, was an interesting challenge as the sun went down, exposures changed..Didn’t do to badly in the end.

The light setup I had going for these pretty much stayed static, I just moved cars in and out again. CBF’d being overly creative, just wanted to give the owners some photos of their rides..Didn’t matter to me that they were all in a similar style 🙂

430EX 1/16th @ 28mm pointing at the rear quarter panel
SB-26 1/16 @ 24mm pointing at the front quarter panel
SB-26 1/64 @ 85mm pointing at the front grill..This one was a bitch, depending on the car colour would either look shit or need to be dialed in again.

Black cars at night, are a particular challenge. Next time, it’d be easier to just paint it with a softbox I think.

2011 Australian Motorshow

with one comment

Its a motorshow, You always see the same sort of photos from these things, so here’s just a couple of the more special cars that were in attendance.
The two models of the new age “Mad Max” cars were awesome, I really liked the Nimachine model they had, looked real tough.

“Top Gear Australia heard rumours of the return of an Australia movie legned, “Mad Max”, and set a challenge to the Ford Australia’s talented designers to come up with what they believe the next generation of Max Max cars should look like.”
