[A new project!] Matt & Roberts Caravan of Carnage

Robert and Matt are pleased to present ‘Bro – The Caravan of Carnage’ A 9 day adventure to the Gold Coast. Please join us online, starting December 21 for regular trip updates, ramblings and jealousy inducing vistas. Planned as a 3 part series, ‘Bro’ is an emotional and thought provoking documentary about the summers most envied bromance.

Thrown together in circumstance during a season of Surf Lifesaving at Bondi beach, the two instantly bonded over mutual love and respect for Bacon, surf and music. Naturally, with little to no planning, they have decided to document for your viewing pleasure a Christmas road trip of epic proportions.

Matt Malcolm is a self-confessed awkward nerd with a background in Baconology. With a striking resemblance to Jenson Button he brings to the journey a blend of obscure humour, a dash of bizarre athleticism and pinch of creativity. He currently believes the food pyramid consists solely of a tiered structure of Bacon.

Robert Cunningham combines an inability to operate motor vehicles with a complete and utter lack of understanding of Australian geography to deliver the perfect, useless road trip companion. His penchant for cardigan sweaters and love of all things covered in cheese are completely irrelevant and, again, contribute absolutely nothing to the trip. He does like the smell of surfboard wax, though, so I guess there’s that…


You can follow us on Tumblr for sporadic updates or individually on Facebook and Twitter.

Remember when…

So long NZ! This small snapshot only represents a tiny portion of the friends I’ve made through drifting and I can’t say thanks enough.  I’m off to Sydney on Monday to chase a dream. I’ll still shoot drifting from Australia but I know it wont be the same.

Hope you’ve all had as much fun as I’ve had!


Waterproof? Pfft… My gear needs to be LIFEPROOF

Dude, I was so totally there before you were famous!


Ain’t no Sunshine

Getting Crazy with Colour Adjustment Curves

There are so many damn ways to enhance colour within an image using Photoshop that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. And depending on the result you are after any number of several small functions can alter the colour in your finished product. So you ask, which one is best?

Well this isn’t the best, or the most common, but here is a slightly different method that I’ve used from time to time to generate a slightly different kind of look to the finished photo – Similar to the old C’s Garage Corolla that is pictured above. It creates more of a summer-ish image, with semi-vintage tones. This Technique works well with your standard RGB colours, so if you have summer shots that could do with a little life give this a crack!

Lets fire up Photoshop and have a look at what colour correction with adjustment curves is all about.



Impact style shot. Super tight on the subject with the red turned all the way up to eleven!


Sharpening 101 – Razor sharp images

Right, so this is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I’ve wanted to give the people who read my blog a few basic bits that I’ve picked up during my time behind the camera and hopefully you learn something or look at an image in a different way!

One of the most basic things you can do to a unedited image, especially if it’s going to the web or print is sharpening. There are a million different ways to go about sharpening an image all with different techniques and all of which result in a different style – But here is the technique I use the most. It works with documentary style shots and with some of the more artistic style ones – So it’s pretty versatile.

First things first. The image above is of Max’s lovely Nissan S13 Silvia which I shot during a D1NZ round last year which we will be using as a base to work from. I’ll include a link to the RAW file so you guys can have a play around.

Moody Interior shots

I’ve always been a fan of moody interior shots – Shots with lots of black, blues and other moody tones can really create a cool feel.
