It has long been a goal of mine to get my car photos published in an international magazine that is read and seen by a much larger audience. I am happy to reveal that the UK Magazine "BMW Car" has picked up my photos from a recent E92 M3 shoot and written a feature article to accompany them. There is a photo on the front page and then a 5 page spread in the May edition of the magazine. You can download a copy on iPad or get it in stores from April 17th.
The newest Ferrari 458 Italia to make it to Perth is this 2011 model which was purchased in Sydney and then trucked over to WA. It looks superb in the optional Giallo Triplo Strato (triple layer pearl yellow) - especially in the sun!
Keep an eye out (and ears open) for this car as not long after the shoot it was fitted with an Armytrix Australia titanium exhaust. More mods in the pipeline also!
I recently shot the famous ex-KSR Nissan R34 GT-R for its new Perth-based owner. What a machine - my first ride in a highly modified GT-R and it won't be something I forget soon.
You can see more about this car and my photos on The-Lowdown.Com - great article by Ryan Lewis.
The event started at the magnificent Shangri-La luxury hotel in Sydney and headed North to the Central Coast to explore the cars dynamics on some brilliant roads.
To fully test the cars Jaguar had arranged a few hours at a "private closed road" which is a 5.2km loop set in a picturesque location.
You can read Karl Pesketts thoughts on the car in his review.
I first shot this Ferrari Challenge Stradale about 9 months ago but for various reasons wasn't able to get any rig shots of the car at that time. So this past weekend the owner and I finally managed to catch up early in the morning to add a couple of motion photos to the set.
I have included some shots from the original shoot in this gallery also.
Although it was only a short drive along a favourite test route it was enough to highlight what an amazing car it is.
Karl Pesketts full review on The Motor Report has a more in depth look its performance.
On Friday night Barbagallo held a launch event for the all new Lotus Exige S. A number of media and Lotus owners were invited for the fully catered event for their first look at the exciting new sports car. Lotus Australia Brand Manager, Alastair Manihera, was also on hand to talk about the car and the direction of the company.
The 2013 Exige S lands in Australia with a price tag of $119,990 and is powered by a supercharged 3.5L V6 delivering 345hp. It tips the scales at only 1170kg!
I am looking forward to experiencing the performance first hand during our upcoming photoshoot and road test. Stay tuned!
This was the first Ferrari 458 Spider to be delivered in Perth. I was commissioned by the owner to document the entire process.
First up was the pre-delivery detail which was carried out over 2 days by Adam at OCDetailing.
The day after this was completed we got to share the owners excitement when he saw his new car for the first time at Barbagallo.
The following weekend I took an early morning drive with the owner to a location south of Perth for a full photoshoot.
This is a car I was really excited about and it didn't disappoint during our afternoon at the RAC track with it. "Our" BMW 1M Coupe came in the stunning Valencia Orange colour which came up nicely in the bright sunlight of a steaming hot December day. To help overcome the sun I hired a Elinchrom Ranger RX with matching heads from the guys at Camera Electronic.
These are some shots I took of the Barbagallo dealership showrooms for use on their updated website.
