We drive some incredible cars, meet some fascinating people and enjoy the incredible sights that Western Australia has to offer, all delivered to our incredible audience by the medium of YouTube and Instagram.
Car reviews, workshop tours, event coverage and everything automotive inbetween that Perth, and the wider Western Australia has to offer.
We love talking cars, covering cars and meeting our incredible audience, both in person and in the comment section.
joydrive, self-funded, I'm here to have a ball in the automotive scene and document as much as I can for yours and my enjoyment.
As part of that, over the years I've loved buying merchandise from other creators and automotive brands. I have around 200 Illest/Fatlace/StanceNation stickers in a box tucked away for a rainy day, and I've always wanted to provide the same, so here we are, a shop!
joydrive was established on YouTube. Videos are the passion and is our main focus. The movement of the vehicle, the people talking and the ever-divisive music gets audiences involved, engaged and brought into the story.
Whilst joydrive has no journalist background - to be entirely upfront. I've driven some incredible cars in my time, and know my way around them enough to, in my opinion, make an educated statement on the way the car looks, performs and it's market position so that the viewer can make their own, educated assessment of that cars fit within their own personal demands.
I started on a single GoPro Hero 3+ Black. Yup.
Over time I added better audio, a metal cage, a stabiliser and other pieces of equipment to constantly improve my videos and production quality.
At a high level we now run the following;
Panasonic G95 with 15 1.7, 45-200 4.0, 8-18 2.4
GoPro Hero 7 Black
Rode Video Mic Go
Saramonic UWMIC9 Wireless Laravel Microphones
DJI Ronin S
DJI Spark and controller
Various accessories like lights, tripods, grips, suction mounts
We then complement this by editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
Instagram is a great way to compliment our audience on YouTube and bring them into the journey of content creation.
Our Instagram audience is steadily growing and is another great outlet to also document great cars and stories that we can't always create videos for, and an incredible means of bringing the audience in behind the scenes through use of engaging Instagram Stories.
