Meguiar's MotorEx 2019

MotorEx is Australia’s largest and most one of its prestigious car show. I headed down to the Melbourne Showgrounds back in May for a look at this special event. On display was everything from 6 second drag cars, half million dollar show cars, JDM classics, rusty hot rods, American and Australian muscle and a sprinkling of drift pigs in action. With over 400 cars on display and hundreds of exhibitors it was quite the spectacle.

It’s always tough work trying to get any decent photos at a car show as there are so many people and distractions in front of the cars so i didn’t really bother. I did manage to snap a few shots on the day, below you can view my favourites.

Johns 1957 Chevrolet Sport Coupe

Photoshoot with this concours fully restored 1957 Chevrolet Sport Coupe

Theres really no words needed to describe this car other than its one of the best restorations i’ve ever seen. I struggle to believe the car came from the factory looking this good.

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

The Pink Panther- A Classic Citroen DS21

The 1967 Citroen DS21 "Goddess"

Last night i headed out to the docklands to take some shots of this classic car. I got told off by security near the docks for blocking the road so didn't get any shots in front of the container ships or cranes so had to scout for some other places to shoot. One thing i learnt was that shooting multiple exposures on a Citroen DS is hard and needs some planning. As the car slowly sinks back down on it's suspension once it loses hydraulic pressure some of my frames were not aligned. Lesson learnt.  This was a bit of a challenging shoot but i'm still happy with the way the final images turned out.
