I was recently in Brisbane to photograph this privately owned Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster. It was specced in the stunning Verde Ithaca, only the second SV Roadster in Australia in this colour - the other residing in Adelaide.
It also has the very rare (and new) options of naked/exposed carbon fibre SV logos and gloss carbon windscreen frame.
In addition to this the owner added some personal touches like the Novitec x Vossen Forged NV1 wheels, calipers and shocks painted in Verde Ithaca, Novitec bonnet and slightly lowered all round.
This is the next car from my day in Melbourne at the Eleven40 studio in Malvern, to shoot 3 cars for private clients.
A stunning 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. The Arancio Atlas paintwork just looked amazing under studio lights!
This example has a few unique features such as the custom designed logo on the side (in the same font as the original SV), a 1 of 1 Innotech Performance exhaust and it has been signed by Valentino Balboni.
All photos were taken on my Sony A7R.

Back in March this year I flew to Sydney to spend two days with the new "entry level" supercar from Lamborghini - the 610hp Huracan. Peter Anderson (journalist for Box Magazine) and I explored the Royal National Park and the area around the stunning Sea Cliff Bridge - great areas for both testing the cars capabilities and scenic photography locations.
Since it was a short trip I was travelling light and only had my Sony A7R, a tripod and a single Profoto B1. The weather and the matte paint finish on the Huracan were both very favourable.
Grab the current issue of Box Magazine to read all about it.
Now that the article/photos have been published in todays West Australian newspaper I can share some of the images from the day.
Alex Forrest (journalist) and I were invited to Barbagallo Raceway to take part in the Lamborghini Driving Academy. The manufacturer flew staff and 4 cars (3 Aventadors and a Gallardo "pace car") to Perth for the event which aims to teach owners and media how to drive these supercars fast but also safely.

I have recently returned from the Asia-Pacific launch of the new flagship supercar from Lamborghini - the Aventador. The event was held at the Sepang F1 circuit over two days. Many thanks to Lamborghini for the opportunity and hosting a brilliant event.

This weekend just gone I flew over to Alice Springs to meet up with a few supercars (transported there on a truck) and their owners, same sort of idea as the previous times we went out there in 2005/6/7.
I think we covered about 2000km in the 3 days of driving and saw some amazing sites along the way – Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, The Olgas and Kings Canyon. Different place/hotel every night so we covered quite a bit of ground.
The roads out there vary a little but for the most part they are amazing and make for some great high speed driving.
Enough talking, here are some pics – obviously not a photoshoot as it was more just snapshots of the road trip along the way but I think they turned out quite well.
You can see more of my photos and words about the adventure over at Downshift.
