The Interview

AMF: Where are you from? Where are you currently living?
- I was born in Brisbane and am still here now.

AMF: How long have you been modeling for?
- I started modelling in 2008.

AMF: How did you start modeling?
- It started in high school when I did a charity fashion show for our brother school and there happened to be a modelling scout there.

Samantha Bailey (THUMBNAIL) 3

AMF: What would you say separates you from other models?
- I would say may be the fact I am all natural – I believe my look is versatile and I can be used for various types of modelling rather than “one look” like bikini or fashion.

AMF: What are some of your best achievements thus far?
Thus far definitely the finals of Miss Universe Australia in 2011. But there a few very exciting things coming up this year ;)

AMF: What do you like or dislike about modeling?
- I like the travelling and meeting new people aspect of it. I also enjoy creating art through photography. Sometimes it can be tedious with 4am starts and long days.

Samantha Bailey (THUMBNAIL) 4

AMF: What is your best modeling secret?
- During a shoot stay hydrated and keep your focus.

AMF: What is the best modeling project that you’ve done?
- I have loved them all of them really I couldn’t pick a favourite!

AMF: What is the strangest modeling project that you’ve done?
I was doing a photoshoot for a charity calendar once and I had to have a graffiti artist paint my body and he had never done graffiti on a person before and was very nervous lol so that was interesting.

Samantha Bailey (THUMBNAIL) 5

AMF: What would you say is your best physical feature?
- I like my eyes and definitely my abs and bum because I work very hard for them!

AMF: What do you like to do outside of modeling?
- I’m pretty active I like rock climbing, golf, and love laying at the beach all day!

AMF: What is your dream car and why?
- A Bentley 100% I love big boss cars ;)

Samantha Bailey (THUMBNAIL) 6

AMF: What do you like about the industry / scene and why?
- The industry is always changing  and I like that. Its something different everyday!

AMF: What do you dislike about the industry / scene and why?
There are some pretty shady people around but if you have your head screwed on straight you shouldn’t have a problem.

AMF: What is the most memorable modeling experience and why?
- Definitely the Miss Universe Australia competition – it was full on and very challenging.

Samantha Bailey (THUMBNAIL) 7

AMF: Having success as a model (like anything) comes with a price, what was yours?
- It’s hard to see it like that as I try and be a positive person I am very blessed to have had the opportunities and success I have so far but it has at times affected my personal life. Its very time consuming and you really need a supportive partner because a lot of weak men can get intimidated and resentful about your success and the attention that comes with it; but the right person will always be supportive and have your best interests at heart.

Another thing thing that can be a downside is the stereotype that comes with being a model in a men’s magazines and there are definitely some girls that fit the stereotype, but I work full time as a financial planner and I am studying accounting – I’m a smart girl and thanks to my modelling career and success I am financially independent at the age of 23… that is worth more than a stereotype!

AMF: What advice would you give out to aspiring models?
- Listen to your gut and choose your jobs wisely.

AMF: Shout outs or last words?
- Thank you AutoMotoFoto! ;)  And a shoutout to my hair sponsors Alisha Jade Hair Stylist at Coolloongatta, Queensland and my other sponsors Malibu Strings Bikinis is Los Angeles, California.

Bentley Brings More Power to the Ice in 2014

Filed under: News — Tags: , , — AutoMotoFoto @ 10:00 AM

Bentley returns to the snow-covered wilds of the far north of Finland this winter with a new and extended edition (6 February-6 March 2014) of its Power on Ice driving experience and the opportunity for even more guests to spend time developing advanced techniques with the four-time World Rally Champion and honorary ‘Bentley Boy’, Juha Kankkunen.

A further highlight of Power on Ice 2014 is the debut of the new Flying Spur sedan on the series of challenging and exhilarating snow and ice circuits especially designed by Kankkunen, who in addition to his 23 world rally victories, has twice broken the world ice speed driving record behind the wheel of Bentley’s Continental cars.


Acclaimed for its exquisite levels of craftsmanship and luxury, the new Flying Spur effortlessly combines this refinement with all the potency of Bentley’s 6.0 litre W12 twin turbocharged engine delivering 616 bhp (625 PS) and a 200 mph (322 km/h) top speed that makes it the world’s fastest luxury four door production car.

A state-of-the-art all-wheel drive system, constantly adjusting the levels of power to the front and rear wheels depending on available traction, ensures the Flying Spur delivers optimal grip regardless of road or weather conditions and is one of the very few ultra-luxury sedans capable of conquering this kind of ‘off-piste’ driving challenge.

“The Flying Spur is going to be an excellent addition to the Power on Ice experience and we’re looking forward to showing what it is capable of. There’s going to be something special about driving a luxury car you’d expect to see in Monte Carlo or London across the snow and frozen lakes,” comments Kankkunen.


The Flying Spur will join an array of Bentley Continental GT coupes in Finland (powered by the company’s 6.0 litre W12 and 4.0 litre V8 engines) and Kankkunen will work with Bentley’s own factory-trained driving experts who will offer in-depth tuition designed to allow drivers to broaden their range of driving skills when faced by testing road and weather conditions.

Away from the thrill of learning how to drive the Bentley of their choice at high-speed on ice, the four-day adventure in Finland offers guests the chance to unwind in the exclusive and luxurious surroundings of the Ruka Peak resort.

Situated just 60 km from the edge of the Arctic Circle, the resort offers a wide selection of hotel and private chalet accommodation options and the mountain resort is widely believed to offer some of the finest, unbroken views of Finland’s spectacular winter scenery. Open fires, saunas, first class local cuisine and flying to and from Helsinki by private jet help to complement the first class experience.

Trend: Off-Brand Wheels

Filed under: Blog — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Adam Gordon @ 11:00 AM

The local Euro car scene is always at the head of the pack when it comes to trying new things. In an attempt to deviate from the norm, many Euro tuners adopt unique visual traits, such as our previously mentioned trends, sticker bomb vinyl wraps and wooden roof racks. Well now the Euro guys and girls are at the forefront of vehicle customization once again with the practice of fitting off-brand wheels to their rides.


In the past few months, we have been keeping an eye on this evolving trend, and we’ve noticed that this practice is most common among VW owners. While the general idea behind the modification is straight-forward, there are several adaptations of the overall concept. We’ve all seen drivers put different factory rims on their car from the same manufacturer, one example being Audi base models being outfitted with S and RS-line wheels, but lately we’ve seen more and more owners thinking outside the box, and outfitting their cars with wheels from a totally different brand.


Some people prefer to keep a relatively clean almost factory appearance, altering the rim style only slightly with a rim from the same automotive family, like in this example of a clean-looking Jetta sitting on Audi rims from Sight & Sound 2013 Round 1.


Others decided to cross some lines, and blend Euro tuning with American muscle. This VW owner fitted his ride with some Corvette shoes. Interestingly, we think it looks pretty good.


One of the early adopters of this this trend is this Golf GTI with the rims from a Bentley we saw at The S&P Fitted Showcase 2013. We know this modification couldn’t have been cheap. On the plus side, it looks absolutely awesome on bags.


Another local ride adopted the Bentley rims as well. Sic Ryde‘s Mercedes is sitting nicely on 9-spokes from an even more luxurious automaker, adding an extra touch of class.

Overall, this trend is a fun one. It will be really cool to see different adaptations from different scenes as people get more and more creative in their attempts to keep their ride as unique as possible. The best thing about this trend is that there is a lot of room to play around. The combinations are endless, and the results will surely vary from subtle to out-of-this-world eccentric. Keep an eye out for owners in the local scene experimenting with this styling tweak.
