What is there to say or write about Gatebil events that hasn’t already been said or written? Who hasn’t seen the likes of Aasbø, “Mad” Mike or Vaughn Gittin jr. drifting through traffic via YouTube? So what can I say or write that sounds new or fresh to you? To be honest, I don’t think I can. But I’d still like you to join me on this trip. Gatebil through the eyes of a first timer. That’s right! I got my Gatebil cherry popped at this year’s main event; Gatebil Rudskogen! Continue reading
This time last year several members of Wangan Warriors were eagerly anticipating heading over to Germany. Despite them all being lucky enough to have enjoyed it before, it would be my first visit to the Nürburgring, and also my first 24 hour event. Nothing can quite prepare you for what you’ll experience on this trip to the Green Hell, it’s the ultimate event for any petrolhead.
Sometimes it takes a great deal of courage to take a leap of faith into the unknown. We all take those steps at some point in life and some are more drastic than others. It’s no secret for the average petrolhead that such leaps are business as usual when you’re building a car. Spending your savings on parts, taking the gamble of importing a car, buying an engine from a stranger – all of these things take some courage to go through in my opinion. Continue reading
We like new things right? We love to get suprised and we like to be spoiled with gifts but we can also look forward to something like a concert of your favourite band or a new movie that’s coming out. I’m happy to introduce something new as well and it’s something for Nissan GT-R owners to look forward to with quite some excitement. The European GT-R Days is a newly set up track event which will be held in 2015. It’s an initiative by Custom Import Arts, HKS, Ecutec and event organization agency Eybis. Continue reading
It’s been a while since we last shared a nice Weekend Wallpaper right? Well a few of our crewmembers such as myself visited the N24 this year and captured some material which will probably not be used for blog content but more so for our personal portfolios. I figured there are loads of Nürburgring fans out there so I hope this Nissan GTR is a nice sight for your desktop. Continue reading
The year 2002. Even though it feels like yesterday for most of us a lot has changed in the world since then. 2002 saw the introduction of the Euro as a currency, NASA landed on Mars for the first time and iconic cars like the Skyline R34 and the mkIV Supra saw their last year of production. Fuelled by the box-office hit The Fast and The Furious, what we now refer to as ‘rice’ was the mainstream way to modifying your car and everything else was considered un-cool. Where am I going with all this you might ask? Well quite simply; 2002 was also the year that the star of today’s feature, the Nissan 350Z, hit the showrooms for the first time. Continue reading
A while ago I drove to a remote part of The Netherlands. A part where they speak a funny language called Frisian, where space is abundant and where two brothers are building awesome cars. I went there to shoot one of those cars, an awesome Suzuki Swift with a Honda heart transplant and an attention to detail that was mind boggling.
There has been a huge amount of anticipation for the 2014 Maxxis British Drift Championship, the drivers and teams are under more pressure than ever to have the most competitive and well-presented cars and as such there have been no end of new liveries, new performance products and entirely fresh builds. Round One at Lydden Hill was the perfect opportunity for the drivers to showcase their creations after what always seems like an endless winter. Continue reading
We work hard. We work to provide for our families, pay our mortgage or to maintain our passions. I’m no exception. I’m just your average Joe with a passion for cars and cameras and I have the great pleasure of combining those two, here, on our humble blog. It’s mostly during the late hours of the day that I’m working on my passions, either browsing the web for my next subject or working on my own subject. But sometimes life gives you lemons. And when it does it’s best to make some fine lemonade! Continue reading
Every time I step into a new adventure I’m wondering what the final result will be of what I’ve captured and how close it comes to my satisfaction. Usually I have some sort of a plan because my regular work for Wangan Warriors is fairly limited to car features or event coverage. I can tell you that it gets easier every time I’m going out there shooting but I was a little insecure about the adventure I had lying in front of me. Purely how I would approach it photographically.
