One Trick Pony

Jul 16, 2018 by

Dubai – the city of superlatives. The biggest, the most extreme, the most expensive – all have a home in this oasis of the desert. And the same goes for their taste in cars. Loud, flashy, exotic (provided you have the money, of course). I’m pretty sure that Dubai takes the title worldwide for highest amount of supercars in one area. However, this poses...

Long Exposures And Longer Walks Around The Dubai Marina
Read more

While researching photo locations around Dubai, one particular area kept popping up in every Google search – the Dubai Marina. Already being such a renowned location, I was skeptical of shooting there, as I felt that it would be difficult to create something that hadn’t already been done. But hey, it won’t hurt to go and try anyway right? Interestingly, for such a “popular”...

Shooting Stars And Wrecked Cars
Read more

While out and about on the hunt for a new starscape image, fate led me to a rather unusual scene that I thought deserved a photo – or at least, a photo attempt. Tossed on the side of a rural mountain road were the rather crumpled remains of what used to be a Land Rover, seemingly forgotten by time. Naturally, curiosity got the better...

Wangan Warrior – Shooting The Mazda RX7

The 90’s – weren’t they just such a great time? Responsible for many awesome creations, such as The Lion King, Tamagotchis, Britney Spears, Friends and…ummmm… the Vengaboys. Maybe not that last one. However, the 90’s were also what some considered to be the “golden era” of JDM car design. R34 GTR, MK4 Supra, Nissan S15, Mitsubishi Evo, original Subaru Impreza – all managed to...

Saturday Afternoons and Impromptu Long Exposures

For the last few days, the weather in my city has been unbearably hot. This isn’t from a freak heatwave – it’s sadly just regular summer weather. I have never enjoyed the heat or humidity, and often find myself sweating away while browsing how much a flight to Alaska would cost… it seems cooler there (but maybe a bit too far away – over...

Frank – The World Time Attack Nissan S13
Read more

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine and fellow petrolhead invited me to his house in the suburbs to take some photos of his nearly complete racecar, which he plans to use in the World Time Attack Championships in Australia this year. This car started life as a regular Nissan S13 (200SX), with a standard CA18DET engine. Not exactly much on the performance...

A Daytrip Experience To Hallstatt, Austria
Read more

The idea to visit Hallstatt (and Austria in general), came about via a rather unusual means: Instagram. As a photographer who enjoys shooting landscapes, I mostly follow accounts that claim to post “most amazing places in the world!”, “wonderful pictures of planet earth!” etc. Superlatives aside, I would often see photos of a small town perched on the edge of a lake, with an...

Mercedes-Benz AMG Breakfast Run

The day started off rather early on a chilly June morning. I arrived at the dealership at around 6:30am, half an hour before the cars were due to start arriving. After managing to convince the security guard that I wasn’t up to no good, I managed to take a few photos of the building and surroundings in the early morning light. Fun fact: did...

Cars In The Park 2015

May 18, 2015 by

Cars In The Park is an event that has been around for much longer than I’ve even been alive, with 2015 being the 40 year milestone. There are usually somewhere over 1,000 cars and bikes on display, with ample other activities and refreshments on offer. Couple that with the rather low entrance fee of only R40, you’ve got a good sounding event on offer....

Motor Extravaganza – Galleria Mall

For someone who tries to keep up to date with whats happening in the local car “scene”, I must admit that this show threw me a bit by surprise. I hadn’t heard anything of it up until a few days before, and even after becoming more well-informed, there were still a few doubts. I mean, a write up somewhere promised a spectacle that would...

BMW Car Club Time Attack

Welcome back dear readers, for what is set to be another article based at the KZN haven of racing – Dezzi Raceway. This time, it was the BMW Car Club of KZN who drummed up the idea and support for this time attack event. For those of you unfamiliar with how a Time Attack event works, you can have a read at some of...

Godzilla – Nissan Skyline R34 GTR

There’s a saying along the lines of “you should never meet your heroes, since you’ll only end up being disappointed”. Do any Top Gear fans here remember the episode where Richard Hammond met Evel Knievel? Yes, I know it wasn’t actually a Top Gear episode, but rather a stand-alone program called Richard Hammond Meets Evel Knievel. It’s clear to see that Hammond was clearly...

Drift Matzuri

Feb 17, 2015 by

The Drift Matzuri event is slightly different from the other competitive layouts of the SupaDrift Series. Instead of only featuring the drivers from the SupaDrift circuit, this event was open to anyone looking to hone their drift skills. Due to this fact, the cars on the track ranged from pro drifters, to the average person who wasn’t too sure what the whole going-sideways thing...

London Calling – A Collection Of Memories

‘Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.’ – Samuel Johnson Somewhere in the northern hemisphere, on a lump of rock situated away from the European mainland, lies a country which I had been yearning to visit for years. From the white cliffs of Dover, to the quaint countryside...

IBV Supercar Parade

Sep 22, 2014 by

To begin with, let us start with a seemingly entirely unrelated topic for this post. Facebook. The great social media machine for the masses. Now don’t get me wrong, Facebook has many benefits, as well as many pitfalls. Other than being able to keep up to date with friends/family/brands/pointless arguments, Facebook also presents the user with adverts based on their “interests”. It was through...

Time Attack Invitational – Dezzi Raceway
Read more

While I have made the trek down to Dezzi Raceway a few times in the past for drifting, this time was for something different. It was time to watch my first ever Time Attack event. Time Attack is a slightly different form of motorsport, compared to regular circuit racing and drifting. Instead of competitors directly racing against one another, they each head out on...

Snowventure – June 2014
Read more

Snow in South Africa is somewhat of a rarity. During the winter months, light snowfalls can sometimes be found scattered about on the high peaks of the Drakensberg, but it melts within a day or two, and is barely ever considered “thick”. However, we seem to get at least one massively heavy snowfall each year, where the snow creeps away from the higher mountains...

The New Lexus Range

Apr 13, 2014 by

While I spend most of my time out and about taking photos of rare and highly modified cars, every now and then I get the opportunity to photograph some entirely standard cars. I was recently given the opportunity to spend a morning in a Lexus showroom, and document the various offerings. I have never been too familiar with the Lexus range nomenclature, so upon...

No Sweat Racing

Apr 9, 2014 by

Those of you who have read my previous posts about Dezzi Raceway will know that it’s a petrolheads oasis on the south coast. What many people don’t know is that it’s also home to No Sweat Racing, operated by master mechanic Steve Clark. Set in a workshop overlooking the coast, No Sweat offer some serious performance upgrades to mostly any JDM vehicles – the...

Dusk To Desert – 72 Hours In Dubai

Famous for absolute excess, Dubai was previously only a place that I had seen a few times from an aircraft window, as well as the Emirates terminal at the airport. Upon finally being able to leave the aforementioned terminal, I engaged my ultimate tourist mode and tried to take in as much of Dubai as possible, before the heat caught up. Arriving on a...

The Supa Drift series rolls into KZN a few times each year, and every day promises to be a spectacle of precision driving and sideways action. For this round, I had the opportunity to get a bit closer to the action, so I grabbed a Canon 5DMKII, and headed south to Port Shepstone. About a one and a half hour drive from my home...

A Postcard From The Alps – Part 2

Switzerland is cold. After sitting on the train from Lucerne for a few hours, I was eager for the journey to finish. So eager in fact, that when I saw a sign flash past the window that read “Interlaken”, I was up and ready to depart in a matter of seconds. Now I’ve read that around 2 km2 of Interlaken consists of buildings and...

Legends Of The Rising Sun – The Toyota Supra

If you mention the words “Toyota Supra” to any petrolhead, you’ll most probably have their attention straight away. If you throw in the acronym “2JZ-GTE” straight after that, you’ll have a new friend for life. Why? Only because these words and numbers translate into one of the most iconic sports cars to ever come out of Japan… The Supra brings up images of drifting...

My foray into Switzerland started at the most laughable border crossing just outside of Lake Constance. A wooden guard hut on the side of the road, with a painted line? Seriously? Whatever works for the Swiss, I guess. I caught the train from Rheinfall (location of the Rhine Falls, surprise surprise), and gazed out the window until the train arrived in Zurich. Usually, train...

Feb 9, 2014 by

  One gloomy Saturday afternoon, we were venturing forth towards the small coastal town of Salt Rock, located just north of the slightly larger town Ballito. With a population count of around 1,800 people, Salt Rock isn’t exactly a bustling metropolis, and is generally only frequented by holidaymakers and occasional visitors. This kind of small town scenario made what we were about to see...

Flying in to Ireland after a short hop from London Gatwick, the weather had already made up its mind for the rest of the week. Grey clouds stretched out over the horizon, and rain pelted the windows as we descended into Dublin. Once landed, the car rental agency provided some unusual comic relief, in the form of some tourists attempting to drive a car...

These photos were originally published on my buddy Pete’s blog RISE. Head on over there and show him some support. It’s not too often that international bands visit South Africa, let alone my city of Durban. Sure, we’ve had a few visits in the past from the likes of Alkaline Trio, Funeral For A Friend, Underoath and Billy Talent, but these visits usually only...
