2018 Geelong Revival - Motoring Festival

2018 GEELONG REVIVAL

Last Sunday the annual Geelong Revival Motoring festival was held at the Geelong Foreshore. Ive been meaning to check this event out for a few years now and finally had the opportunity. What an amazing event held in such a picturesque part of Geelong. The relaxed vibe and smell of fuel and rubber created a great atmosphere for young and old.

The mix of eclectic classic and modern cars and bikes really make the event what is is. I will definitely be back again next year.

In the mean time here are a handful of snaps from the days sprints.

1967 Chevrolet Camaro Photoshoot

Dean’s 1967 Chev Camaro 454 ‘Big Block’

Deans 1967 Camaro has been a labour of love. He has owned the car for 10 years and has slowly turned it into the beast it now is. A stroked out 454 cubic inch big block that looks as clean as it runs. Make no mistake this is a pure street car that gets driven regularly and is no show pony, This Camaro has so much torque on tap i’ve never experienced a proper big block before and was not disappointed. Once the fat rear tyres stop spinning and find some traction it just rocket-ships down the road at an alarming rate. Its just a mental, angry, brutish and loud car and i absolutely love it.

We started the shoot in the late afternoon to get some of that beautiful golden hour lighting in the backstreets. After that we headed back to a location for some light painting images to really make the car pop. Total shoot time was around 5 hours with a further 8+ hours spent on post processing

MY FIRST PUBLISHED PHOTOSHOOT

I'm excited to have my first ever magazine photoshoot published in the latest October issue of Retro Bike magazine. Its such a great feeling to see images i’ve shot in print format and not through a computer screen. Theres just something about a physical print that is so appealing. A big thanks to Jonny Taylor for building such an amazing custom bike that photographs so well. This current issue of Retrobike is in stores now so if you feel like it grab yourself a copy to read all about the build and look at some pretty pictures.

The rest of the shoot is up on my previous blog post from earlier this year, it features many more of my favourite shots that were not included in the magazine.

CUSTOM YAMAHA TRX CAFE RACER

MV Agusta 'Pirelli Edition' and Stunt Rider

A lazy Sunday afternoon chasing some golden hour lighting with the MV Agusta 2018 Limited Edition Pirelli 800RR Brutale with sponsored stuntman Lukey Luke.  We only had an hour to quickly whip up some images in the fading sunlight. This bike is absolutely stunning a piece of art with the performance to match its looks and if you look closely enough you can tell my his expression that Lukey just might be enjoying himself.

Murray Valley Track Day

I recently had the chance to get a taste of the Murray Valley Training Centre and ride this awesome little track. For a few years now i have heard only great things about the track and it sure didn't disappoint. It's so technical and tight but so so much fun once you link up all the turns correctly. Its mainly a 2nd gear track and teaches great smooth throttle control as you can only use full throttle 10% of the time and i only click up into 3rd for a few seconds. The track is hard work (compared to a larger circuit) on a 1000cc but was much easier than i expected which i attribute to the amazing Race Centre suspension setup i'm running on my RSV4.

When i wasn't out on track i decided to snap a few pics around the pit exit to practice some slow shutter and rear curtain sync flash shots. The following images are just a few of them and dont cover the scope of a full days photographic coverage at the track.

I can’t wait to make the journey up to Murray Valley Training Co again as its an absolute blast and i can see it really improving my riding. Big thanks to the legends that make it all happen.

Head to the Murray Valley Training Centre website for more info and their upcoming dates
