Meeting your idols

If you are into exotics then normally Europe would be the place to head.  Japan doesn’t often spring to mind when you say ‘Ferrari’…until now. Normally Ferrari’s don’t make Katherine go ooh ahh, although when it’s owned by Kato-san from Liberty Walk and infused with a bit of Japanese ingenuity

24 must see and do’s in Japan…

There is nothing cooler than getting on a plane, and going somewhere unknown.  So many new experiences await you.  After having lived in Japan for going on 6 years now I enjoyed going through a bunch of my photos and laughing at some of my previous experiences.  So I decided

Formula One – Finding its feet

I was sitting back watching the latest Formula One Grand Prix recently, and despite being a seasoned motorsport fan, I am still astounded at how much of a well-oiled machine the F1 circus is.  Pitstops that happen quicker than you sneeze, and today’s level of safety is certainly something to

Liberty Walk – Bulls of steel

Liberty Walk is not a new name in the tuning world and I am sure that we have all (at some stage) seen Kato-san’s impressive widebody euro creations. Specialising in the tuning of Italy’s famous ‘raging bull’ he has created a Murcielago which will do more than just turn your

A shrine to all things classic racing…

The most amazing thing about automotive photography is turning up to a shoot and not knowing exactly what you are about to be presented with. Standing outside this particular shed, it looked just like any other shed…metal, painted, and big and square. This however was one book that couldn’t be

Up close with my hero – Mazda’s 787B

Every car fanatic has their one car they hold in higher esteem than any other, a kind of hero if you like.  One definition I found in the dictionary for ‘hero’ was the following: ‘a warrior-chieftain of special strength, courage, or ability’.  I think that is a very good way of describing the Mazda 787B, my own

FATSLT : The 180 that doesn’t care what you think

It’s early Saturday morning, and I am en-route to the shoot location and following my good buddy Hayden Gibbons 180SX on a trailer.  It’s wide, agressive, and is one of those cars that right off the bat doesn’t care whether you love it or hate it.  All this is made

It’s not a hobby….it’s a sickness!

Drifting is very much a ‘community’ style of motorsport.  The glossy upper levels of drifting; D1GP, Formula Drift are big but we forget that the grassroots level is what keeps these big top echelons running.  Recently my buddy Jaron Olivecrona has taken his first step from grassroots into the bigger,

Mudslingers – 4×4 trials

4WD trials has evolved in the last few years to not just be done in a strengthened Hilux with a welded diff crawling through bog holes of mud.  Now the sport has bucket loads more horsepower, drivers and co-drivers with balls of steel, and some very serious looking trucks! With

Drifting downunder – Kiwi style

With all the excitement of summer approaching, New Zealand’s own D1NZ kicked off recently and I decided to hit the event up to see what all the fuss was about.  After being immersed in the Japanese D1GP for the past few years, it’s cool to see what my home country
