We cracked on with Tank Moto issue 04 last night with a shoot in the low lit streets on Colingwood, Melbourne. Photographer Jason Lau did he usual awesome thing, and it all got a bit loose towards the end, which was totally ok by all of us.
Rick the bike’s owner has a perfect workshop for the shoot.
And there was some cool eye candy on site for background usage.
This weekend is the Penrite Broadford Bike Bonanza at the State Motorcycle Sports Complex. We went last year, had a complete blast, and published the photos in Tank Moto magazine. Well this year promises to be bigger and better than ever, and the Kustom Kommune crew will be heading up there en mass too. For more info, head over to the Motorcycling Australia website, or just make your way to Broadford this Easter weekend, you won’t be disappointed.
Subscriptions all went out last week, and now single copies have started to ship. Head on over to our shop page and get a head start. Alternatively, they will be in Australian newsagents this Thursday.
Issue 04 of Tank Moto Magazine officially started production today. We headed out to the storm water channels of suburban Melbourne for a Sunday evening session.
Editor Richie was the man behind the Bell bubble visor and all suited up in some quality Roland Sands Design gear. So now it’s a solid month or so of shooting, writing and ripping up the streets on some awesome bikes.
Fuel Magazine issue 16 has arrived, and has started to ship out to subscribers today. The usual thick & glossy affair, for this issue we enlisted the help of some fine local talent. The cover shoot was photographed by Loretta Lizzio, a Queensland artist who as you can see is a dab hand behind the lens too. She’s also spending a fair bit of time down here in Melbourne, which is quite ok with us.
The El Camino was supplied by good fellow Shayne Stewart, the model is Elisabeth Berral, and the styling and hair/make up was taken care of by the ever enthusiastic Keira Rae.
We’re pretty happy with this one, and it’s probably the most diverse we’ve ever done as far as content goes. There are 13 weighty articles in there, and each one is different from the next. We’ve got hot rods, customs, hand built classics, skaters, bikes, historic racing, lowriders, history and vans. Yes… vans. We like vans.
Worth noting again is the fact that our friends at Dickies are giving away some bumper packs for new subscribers to the magazine, starting with this issue. Numbers are limited so sign up now to grab the goods.
As mentioned, subscriptions are going out now. Single copies will start shipping on Monday 7th April, and it will be in Australian newsagents Thursday 10th.
