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

Norton Commando 961 Sport Photoshoot

Promotional photoshoot of the Norton Commando 961

Last week i had the special opportunity to shoot the new Norton Commando 961 Sport MkII for the new Melbourne dealer Benzina Garage. What a beautiful hand built machine this is, the attention to detail and craftsmanship is stunning. In the next few weeks i’m looking forward to taking some more shots of these machines in some different locations around the streets of Melbourne. For now check out the official Norton Australia website or head over to Benzina Garage to check out these sweet machines in person, maybe if you ask nicely enough they will let you take one for a test ride.

Custom Yamaha TRX Photoshoot

Does it get anymore customized than this? I don't think there is one part of this 1996 Yamaha TRX 850 that has not been modified.  It starts with extensive engine work - high comp pistons + flatside carbs and head work - Triumph 675R Ohlins front end and brakes - CBR1000RR rims -Race Centre modified R6 Ohlins rear shock - Custom hand made exhaust - custom subframe - chopped and modified tank - Harley headlight - Ducati Master cylinder. The list goes on and on and is absolutely incredible.

I had the chance to shoot this amazing bike for Johnny Taylor. Jonny is an accomplished road racer who built the bike himself over 4  years. Everything on the bike had a purpose to make it go harder, handle and stop better (plus it also looks sexy).  This bike will be featured in an upcoming issue of RetroBike magazine in October, i'm pretty excited to see my photos in print.

In the mean time you can read more about Johnnys bike over at Return of the Cafe Racer in their writeup on his bike HERE
