Red, White and Blue Off-road

Posted by on Jun 23, 2017

Whoever says that Bentley cannot do off-road does not know what they are talking about. I have just been on a Bentley Bentayga Diesel Adventure Drive in the Hunter Valley, NSW. We drove and stayed at Tower Lodge (which is fabulous). The cars as expected were brilliant on-road. After a brilliant degustation dinner presented by chef Meet Tansu, the next day it was onto the mud and puddles. The Bentayga, the world’s fastest diesel SUV, does it all as the images show. You can read the whole story in a forthcoming edition of Signature Luxury Travel & Style Magazine...

This car has certainly been causing a stir, having made an appearance on Channel 7, ABC radio (http://www.abc.net.au/radio/sydney/programs/breakfast/torana/8505814), and The Australian newspaper (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/life/motoring/torana-the-bogans-ride-fit-for-a-millionaire/news-story/0219f9da1afda54e18db300cb1bc5078) in the space of 48 hours!

Requiescat In Pace

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017

The term legend is used too loosely these days. On April 10th, however, we lost a legend when the genius boat designer Carlo Riva, aged 95, went to the big harbour in the sky. This was the man who between 1950 and 1970, on Lake Iseo in the north of Italy, created the legend and the myth that was Riva, the finest of all boat brands encapsulating la dolce vita. R.I.P. Herewith, as a small homage, just a few of the images I have taken of...

Boys just wanna have fun!

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017

With apologies to the lyrics of Cyndi Lauper, sometimes my job really is fun. What more do I really need to say about this image taken on a recent photography session with a 1964 Aston Martin DB5? The reason for the fun and games was the DB5 I recently consigned for the upcoming auction at Carriageworks in Sydney on May 28th. To find out more go to...
