DREAM FORCE

Creativity comes from many places, and fire sparks when one idea ignites another.

In 2016 we had the pleasure of working with some of the leading professionals in our industry, photographer Ms Jennifer Stenglein and Stylist Mr Jeff Lack. The outcome, a campaign published for The Lane – a widely renowned wedding directory and blog for the cutting edge, modern couple.

With the Melbourne Formula #1 having just launched the racing season, there is not a more perfect time to share this work. Dreams encompass many things, whether it’s mastering your career, marrying your true love, buying your fantasy car or holidaying with your nearest and dearest.

Our dream car is the AC Shelby Cobra and features in this shoot.

Originally produced by the British manufacturers AC Cars, the American automotive designer Carroll Shelby wrote to AC asking if a Ford V8 engine could be integrated into the design - giving birth to the car we know today as the AC Shelby Cobra. In more recent times the first produced Shelby Cobra broke the record of most expensive American car sold at Pebble Beach Auctions (Gooding & Company) on August 19th 2016. The 1962 Shelby Cobra CSX 2000 sold for $US13.75 million, breaking the previous record by $3.75 million from a 1968 Ford GT40 race-car in 2012. Interestingly the car sold at the Pebble Beach auctions was Carroll Shelby’s, which he had until his death in 2012.

So don’t put the breaks on your dreams, keep riding towards them with power and creativity, because the outcome might drive you for a lifetime.
