A nice comment I got on the ZEN Garage blog. Really appreciate comments like this. It makes everything worth while.

Gday Justin

First a big thanks for wasting my entire Saturday arvo and evening. I found you down the rabbit hole when gorgeous Viv popped up in my mindless twitter scrolling yeserday.

Big up to ya for your hard work mate, bearing your soul to the world with your atriculate stories, great life photos and of course the hot photosets. I’ll subscribe on Patreon to support you and your work.

As I got to know ya yesterday I felt like I was reading about a bro from another mo… same age, same hometown, same penchant for multiple guitars, skateboards (I skated Gonz and Lance for a while), I just finished my performance-car life, getting old, switched for a hybrid vagina car but only subject to my Indonesian Mrs approving the purchase of a decent motorbike to keep scratchin that itch. I spent about 5 years in HKG – my Crybaby 545Q and a cool Squier strat mini both back here in syd via Tom Lee Music TST, best music shop south of Los Angeles IMO.

I was a billy muncher for far too many years to care counting – can;’t remembger anyway – and I quit the darts in 2019 after suffering a stoke.

Anyway mate, I’m not a fkn stalker but I wanted to reach out to you to say g’day and thank you for the entertainment and inspiration.

Your inspiration is on many fronts, but the photography front is prime. I kinda took parts in the great resignation, paid off my mortgage, and dropped far too much on a complete Nikon Mirorless setup, 7ZII and 6 of the most expensive zoom and prime and TC lenses. I spent a lifetime working as an importer, half my life in Asia, half my life here marketing shit to the masses and haccking it up in various photography studios. Aside from playing along badly to Hendrix, Zep, RHCP, and more, as my number one love, getting out shooting surfing, motorbikes, nature, and more is where I am headed.

Anyway mate, you’re a damn fkn fine c*nt and I look foward enjoying your work going forward. I’ll sub to Patreon a bit later today… the tough Indo Mrs is kickin my ass off the couch to do some chores while it’s sunny (you know how hat is right!).

Bagus Lan zai!

Lo Yeah Eddie

ZEN PODCAST 37 – Gripshiftslide


Awesome podcast with Gwyn Morgan and Grant Salter of Gripshiftslide. I’m a HUGE fan of their automotive photography!

These guys started Gripshiftslide at the same time as I started ZEN Garage (2011) so we take a trip down memory lane and I find out what drives the guys to keep on doing what they’ve always done best; take amazing dynamic and artistic photos on the circuit.

Be sure to follow them on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gripshiftslide.gss

ZEN PODCAST 36 – Leslie Lau & Shaun Cooper


Always awesome to hang with Leslie Lau & Shaun Cooper of The Hustle & Flow Podcast.

We had a great catch up this week on the old school analog podcast setup. I hadn’t run a live face to face setup in a while and had a feeling I was going to have some technical issues and too right! I ran out of space on the card in the ZOOM H6 unit which only managed to record 30 minutes of our podcast! Massive fail, and a real shame.

The audio in this video is from the video camera. Apologies for the quality, will strive to do better next time!

Who doesn’t love getting goodies in the mail?! The rad guys at Cosmonauts sent me some of their stellar apparel. Space travel is about limitless imagination, which is the same dogma these guys apply to their brand. Vivienne Law and I hook up with street photographer blindsidehein (rad dude who shoots on film!) to shoot these shots at the old ZEN Garage in Leichhardt (ahhh the memories!).

Trump Biden Debate Reaction by Antonio Logan


Real Talk.

This morning I woke up to voice messages from my good friend Antonio Logan, a ZEN contributor based in Cary, North Carolina USA. His initial reaction to yesterday’s Trump vs Biden debate is raw AF. You can hear and feel his frustration, his fears and disdain, he’s cut and bleeding. I’m publishing his reaction with his blessing.

Art of ZEN | Obsessed | Justin Fox

Cardo has uploaded his final edit on an interview we did a few weeks ago. He’s done a great job! I’m honoured to have such an in-depth video interview about my passion for cars and GT-R’s.
