Tank Moto Issue 06 Launch @ Rupert

Some snaps I took at the Tank Moto Magazine launch which also doubled as a Rupert Cafe launch as well.. This is one of their most impressive issues to date, truly a world class publication. Oh, and that back cover image was taken by me. Tank-Moto-Rupert01001

Fuel Magazine and Tank Moto

A huge reason I haven’t posted much before today is that I’ve been busy working on my photography business. One of the main highlights of this year was getting to photograph for two outstanding magazines, Fuel Magazine and Tank Moto. Both magazines feature huge write-ups and images of some stunning custom vehicles. My work has been generously displayed over many of these pages. It is also a privilige to have my work shown in the same publication as photographer Sam Christmas whose work I have a tremendous respect for. Please support these magazines as there are not many publications of this high quality, and personally knowing the people who help put these together I can tell you that they have a lot more amazing features coming.tankmoto1 tankmoto2Tank Moto, Issue 2

Ellery photoshoot with Blitz

I love fashion photography, largely because it has the potential to encompass almost any topic or interest. This fashion shoot for Ellery features the beautiful Blitz BMW R60 ‘Great Escape’. The industrial black form of the German bike gives the Baroque surroundings a sense of gravitas and menace, an extension of the rebel image expressed with greater elegance. It’s great to see a model like Ashley Smith pose with a motorcycle without resorting to lad’s mag antics. The trouble is, I can’t take my eyes of that beautiful bike.

Island Classic 2013 – Race

A photojournalist friend of mine lent me his lovely Canon 1d Mark IV and a 300mm f2.8 lens to play with on this day at the Phillip Island race track. It was a steep learning curve as I’m more a portrait shooter rather than a sport shooter, however, I did come back with some images I was quite happy with. The Sidecar races were a real surprise for me as to how much I enjoyed photographing the riders hanging on with their helmets nearly scraping the ground. Hope you find something you like too.

Island Classic 2013

The Phillip Island Classic Bike race has been and gone for another year featuring some very tasty retro and classic race bikes. It was a privilege strolling through the pit lanes chatting to enthusiastic builders and riders who welcomed questions about their bikes and races. Here are some images I took that represent some highlights of what was there. I also tried to capture more images of the riders this year as they were often as interesting and colourful as the bikes they rode. All rights reserved on these images. More images of the actual races to come!ClassicBikes2013-001 ClassicBikes2013-002 ClassicBikes2013-003 ClassicBikes2013-004 ClassicBikes2013-005 ClassicBikes2013-006 ClassicBikes2013-007 ClassicBikes2013-008 ClassicBikes2013-009 ClassicBikes2013-010 ClassicBikes2013-011 ClassicBikes2013-012 ClassicBikes2013-013 ClassicBikes2013-014 ClassicBikes2013-015 ClassicBikes2013-016 ClassicBikes2013-017 ClassicBikes2013-018 ClassicBikes2013-019 ClassicBikes2013-020 ClassicBikes2013-021 ClassicBikes2013-022 ClassicBikes2013-023 ClassicBikes2013-024
