21 Years of the Yamaha R1

1998 - 2015 Yamaha R1 - Photoshoot

A few years ago private collector and club racer, Richard, contacted me to shoot his collection of Yamaha R1’s. Well fast forward 2 years after that shoot and he has expanded and updated his Yamaha collection. What we have here is his tribute to the original 1998 R1. And what better way to do that than an original 1998 Yamaha R1 and a 2015 R1M with custom paint and graphics in the 1998 R1 colour scheme. We also have his 2015 R1 Race Bike looking very different to the way it did back in 2017.

The images that follow are my tribute to these machines and one of my all time favourite motorcycle manufactures.

Aprilia Australia Racers Day 2019

2019 Aprilia RSV4 Factory 1100 Launch at Phillip Island

Early in April i had the pleasure of not only riding my favourite brand of motorcycle around my favourite racetrack but also managed to capture some photos from the Australian debut of the new Aprilia RSV4 Factory 1100. What an absolute weapon this 217hp machine is and to be on track and see just how much faster it is compared to the old model was a treat.

I didn't get much time behind the lens as i was having too much fun on track so i have posted just a few of my favourite shots from the day. Aprilia have really knocked it out of the park with this bike and put on one of the best Track Days at the Island i have attended.

BMW R Nine T Stunt Photoshoot

Sunset shoot with BMW Sponsored Stunt Rider ‘Lukey Luke’

Last week i had the pleasure of shooting with Australia’s top Stunt Rider and all round legend Lukey Luke. Luke recently signed on with BMW Motorrad as their Stunt Rider and brand ambassador a first of their kind in Australia. So naturally we headed out to capture some images of Luke doing what he does for his new branding. Featured here is the brand new BMW R Nine T ‘Racer’ being put through its paces and doing things it was never designed to do.

I’m excited that these images are going to be featured in the official BMW Motorrad Australia press release and marketing material. It’s always a pleasure to work with someone as extremely talented as Luke as he makes getting that shot so easy, once he gets his BMW F800R Stunt Bike finished we will be bringing you some more great shots.

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.

2018 Phillip Island MotoGP

Motoheaven’s 2018 MotoGP VIP Marquee

Late last month i had the opportunity to shoot the 2018 Phillip Island MotoGP for Motoheaven at their VIP marquee. It was a crazy few days spent trackside on the Gardner straight drinking many beers lucky i also managed to take a few photos along the way. Once again thanks to Adrian and the crew at MotoHeaven for their hospitality it was such a great way to experience the GP with a great bunch of people. Im already counting down the days till the next one.
