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.

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

Kawasaki ZX10 Photoshoot

Darren from Race Centre has worked on my bikes for a few years now their suspension work is 2nd to none so when he approached me to take some photos for one of his customers as a surprise i jumped all over it. What we see below is a street modified 2006 Kawasaki ZX10R. This shoot was done entirely on location at Race Centre and although there is not much room to work with in the workshop as there is a lot of background clutter, we managed to pull off some shots that worked well. 

Stay tuned as I will be shooting a lot more at Race Centre in the coming months as they are Melbourne's Top Performance/ Race Bike workshops.

Check out their website below as i highly recommend their services.

R1 Race Bike Photoshoot

This shoot was interesting and a lot of fun. Richard had just finished his R1 Race Bike ( his wet bike) and wanted some photos. These shots were taken just as the sun was setting which created the beautiful backlight coming from the window. I had to move fast setting up my flash's as the light was fading quickly. For the hazy effect i ended up using the bag from a vacuum cleaner which was full of dust, to shoot the dust in the air we used air from an air gun in the workshop.

Local Road Racer - Promotional Photoshoot

Luke is a local road racer who i met through a mutual friend earlier this year. A great guy and a passionate rider he will be racing the Hartwell Series this year. His ZX10 was built by the legends at Race Centre who have made many go fast ZX10's over the years. Although the fairings are a bit rough this is one quick machine. Luke approached me to create some images of himself and his bike for his sponsor for promotional uses. It was great to spend a couple of hours with Luke talking about racing and bikes. I hope i can head out on track with Luke later this year and see how much his Kawasaki will destroy my Aprilia down the Phillip Island Straight. 

Here are some of my favourite images from this shoot. Good luck to Luke on your season mate.
