As a major editorial contributor to Leaded, I have known Mark Buchanan professionally since he started what was Queensland’s very own classic car magazine in the early-2000s. Mark lives and breathes his passion for classic cars, combining talent behind the lens with a flair for design and savvy business sense.

I engaged the services of Mark Buchanan to assist me with marketing and promoting the sale of my 1974 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. Mark spent a day for a photo shoot in the Dayboro region, and the Ascot Brisbane region and fixed video cameras to the car to take video footage of my Spider driving up Mount Mee and at Sutherland Avenue Ascot. This included sound recording of all the wonderful engine and exhaust noises that emanate from Alfa Romeos.
Mark then interviewed me at my home regarding my life story with Alfa Romeos and then edited all the footage to produce a 6 minute video clip plus outstanding photos which he placed on his fabulous website, Marque Photography, to promote the car.
I listed the car for sale on Uniquecarsales and Mark’s wonderful photos and video assisted me to sell the car for a record Australian price for a Kamm Tail Spider to a Victorian Collector on the same day it was advertised. The buyer is delighted with his purchase.
Mark was extremely professional, patient, and easy to deal with, and we have both joined our individual skill sets and passion for classic cars to market, promote and position a small number of high end classic cars on the national and international market.
I highly recommend Mark’s work - he is a delight to work with and a true professional in his field.
