My Favourite Moments in Time From 2016

2016 is the fourth year of Overdrive Photography, and even though it has been a slow one, I have had a lot of moments behind the lens that I have enjoyed, and several pictures that I have taken that I really like. They may not be perfect or even amazing photos, but I like the story that some of them tell, or what has been captured in frame, these are my ...

New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing 2016 – Celebrating Porsche

The New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing is an event that takes place over two weekends every year, dedicated to all things speed. Every year there is a central theme, alternating between a manufacturer and a kiwi racing legend, this year it was dedicated to the German motorsports powerhouse, Porsche. There were some very special cars that were shipped all the ...

Demon Energy D1NZ National Drifting Championship – Round 2 at ASB Baypark Arena

On the 8th and 9th of January the Demon Energy D1NZ National Drifting Championship rolled into Tauranga for the third time, this time around it would be the second round on the calendar, and would also now be a night round.

2015 – 3 Years of Overdrive Photography

2015 has been a slow year photography wise for me, I have been focusing more on my studies at Polytech, and 2015 has just been a busy year in general for me. I haven't been to as many events as I would have liked to, I missed Speedshow this year for the first time since I started going in 2010, due to plans falling though at the last moment. I also tried to ...

New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing 2015 – Celebrating Howden Ganley

First off I would like to apologise for this post being even later this year than last year, I have been really busy with other things in life this year and haven't had a lot of time for photography, editing, writing, etc. The New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing has cemented itself as one of the best events on the New Zealand automotive calendar, and it ...

2014 – My Year in Review

That time has come again, it's nearly the end of another year, and this marks my first full year operating as Overdrive Photography. Even though this year has been a mixed bag for me with my photography, I feel I have managed to make a great improvement with my photos over the course of the year. I didn't end up attending as many events as I would have liked to ...

Carnage on Quay Street – Red Bull Drift Shifters 2014

As soon as Mad Mike announced that he was bringing back Red Bull Drift Shifters this year, I immediately made sure I was free that weekend, and started making my plans, because I knew that this was one event I did not want to miss. This year saw it come back bigger, and better than the first one in 2012, not only was the course longer, but also wider. Of course ...

Sunsets & Landscapes – 2013 & 2014

It's about time I post something other than cars on my blog, so here are some of the landscape and sunset photos that I have shot over the last year or so, I hope you enjoy ...

New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing 2014

First off I would like to apologize for this post being so late, I have been rather snowed under with personal things the last few months. The New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing is New Zealand largest motor sport event. This annual festival takes place at Hampton Downs raceway, and it celebrates a different driver or manufacturer every year and brings some ...

Photo Essay: NZPC Summer Tour Stop 2 – Tauranga

Since I am suffering from a bit of writers block at the moment I will just let the photos do all the talking. I do have to take my proverbial hat off to Taryn and Pedey Kelly for organizing such a great event. There were some awesome cars that turned up, the vibe of the event was really relaxed, everyone was very well behaved and the weather was awesome. I ...
