So digging the work of Nicolai Sclater Connifer, aka Ornamental Connifer. His simple, bright, geometric designs and lettering transcend the typical style street art, bringing his unique take on Pop-art.


Lotus C-01

If there is one company that can create lustworthy vehicles it is Lotus. Their first foray into motorcycles is not different. It has a 200 HP V-Twin engine inside but I can also see this be translated into an electric bike design without much change; which suits it’s futuristic look. Often these concepts don’t see the light of day but Lotus is planning to release 100 units with a huge range of customisation. I can’t wait!

Honda GB400 SL – Kustom Kommune

I had the privilege of photographing this exquisite cafe racer belonging to Jimmy Goode of Kustom Kommune. Kustom Kommune is an independent community workshop located in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia. It is a dream project headed up by Jimmy and Geoff Baldwin (Return of the Cafe Racers blog). They are also responsible for putting on the Oil Stained Brain custom bike show. This Honda GB400 SL was certainly a highlight of that show. It has been massively customised by Raider Motorsport, bored out and makes the most beautiful noise when running. Final details were finished off by Jimmy and the gorgeous flake paintwork was supplied by Thom Armstrong from Rusty Kustoms Paint Department.

I photographed this bike on location at Kustom Kommune to show off it’s warm tones and because the bike totally matches the raw sprit of the space. Worth noting that Jimmy is now looking at selling this bike to continue funding for the community garage space. A worthy cause but it will be sad to see this bike go. You can read more about the build detals at ROCR blog and see more of my photography work here.

Rusty Kustom Biker Build Off

I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Rusty Kustom Biker Build Off a couple of weeks ago in Belgrave, Victoria. Because I had a workshop to run earlier that day, it meant that I only got to witness the aftermath of what I was told was an epic day of bike crashes, music and merriment. I did however get a chance to photograph some of the beautiful creations that featured in this event. The highlight for me was Rusty Kustom’s own bobber built from a rather dishevelled Yamaha DT400 and that gorgeous custom tank. A lot of love went into these bikes as well as the whole event. Looking forward to next year when I can be there for all the shenanigans!Kustom002 Kustom004 Kustom005 Kustom006
