The Dyno nameplate under the GT brand created some of the coolest bikes to ever roll out of a factory. Just as legendary was their annual calendar. We managed to uncover one from 2000 which we found online, so we just had to share it.

Two of my favourite things in the world – blues and burlesque.

I’m pretty freaking excited to share these amazing pictures with you. I mean it’s not often you get the chance to do a photo shoot with your gorgeous fiance, a biplane, a bunch of cool vintage items, all shot by a fantastic photographer.

This story actually started a few years back when I met a girl on a forum. We talked online for a few months, and even though we lived interstate, I was pretty smitten. A friend was having a luau in Brisbane, and that was just the excuse I needed to fly up and meet this girl. Well it went pretty well, and for the next two years we did the long distance relationship thing. Our trips were coordinated around rockabilly gigs and hot rod shows in our respective states. Not to mention going for drives, hitting vintage stores, riding our cruiser bikes and just being dorks with each other. When she finished her degree, she made the gutsy call to move away from her family to Sydney. Needless to say it’s worked out great, and another couple of years down the track we’re engaged.

Our wedding photographer is the talented Jonathan from Jonathan David Photography. As part of his standard package he includes an ‘engagement shoot’. Basically it’s a chance for him to get to know us, and us to get to know him. This way on the wedding day we’re feeling relaxed and comfortable, which means less stress and better photos. As you can see the quality of his work speaks for itself.

For our shoot we wanted something that reflected our love of dusty and rusty old stuff, but also the many hours we spent travelling over those two years of long distance relationship. We were incredibly lucky to find Roy and Primrose Fox, and their B & B ‘The Missions 1937‘. Located at Wisemans Ferry, it’s a luxurious B & B and we highly recommend a stay. Their hospitality was fantastic, not to mention Prim’s cooking! And they were more than accommodating for us to do our shoot with their plane. The plane in question by the way is a DH 82a Tiger Moth, which was used extensively as a pilot trainer. All of the props we bought at various swap meets and vintage stores.

A massive thank you to Roy and Prim, Jono and Britt, and Jen for all your help in making these amazing shots happen. You guys are all awesome!

Happy Easter

Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to get in the mood than this cute pin up video featuring the gorgeous Kate Upton.

Summer is almost here, and to celebrate Bonds have released their latest ad with Rachael Taylor, Todd Lasance – and our EK Holden! What could be a better way to celebrate Summer than by jumping in an old car, cruising to a beach in the bush and having a good time?

It was only by chance that our car was used. We were picking up some timber in the EK, and one of the creative guys behind the ad came up and had a chat with us. After a minute or so of conversation about the cool car, he asked if we’d be interested in it featuring in a short film? We’d be paid, but the catch was the filming was the very next day and we had to get to the location at a seriously ungodly hour in the morning. After some thinking time and some negotiating to sort out the insurance side of things, we were in business.

Here’s some pics from filming on the day. It’s safe to say you’ve got to film a whole heap of content to get that 2 minutes of finished video. We hung around partly out of curiosity, and to be honest, partly to keep an eye on our car. It was an interesting day and something we’d consider doing again.

Getting to location pre-dawn. The upside was cruising through the dead empty streets of the city with the red six purring and some blues cranked up.

Dawn over the beach was pretty nice.

Filming the scene walking onto the beach in the morning light.

Lots of content didn’t make the final edit, like this shot of driving along the corso. It’s kind of surreal to watch other people drive your car on the street.

Taking some still shots to compliment the video.

Lots of time was spent getting different shots to give plenty of options in the editing suite.

The scenes were effectively shot in reverse order, so even though these are the opening shots, they were filmed last.

A few more still shots and it was a wrap.
