180422-Bike & Rider Project
For years I have wanted to combined my love of riding, and photography, into a personal project (that goes beyond the selfie). My concept is quite simple, I'd like to create 10 commercial/editorial style portraits of biker+bike.
#1 - Environmental Portrait: Biker + Bike stationary or in motion against a really great backdrop ie. twisty mountain pass, gnarly single track, motor cross track, your favourite lookout point...
#2 - Closeup Portrait: Editorial style close up portrait of rider that really showcases a unique character and ideally how that personality aligns with / is reflected in their choice of motorcycle and attire .
Given the nature of this project I'm looking for bother rides and riders that really exude a lot of personality. I don't care about the price or condition of your bike or if you're "good looking" or not, just that you have a passion for riding and that it can be captured in a photo. I feel the examples below illustrate this concept.
Initially I’d like to start in and around Victoria/Sooke/Sydney to keep expenses at a minimum and refine the concept and workflow before branching out further. That said don’t be dissuaded from signing up.
If you know anyone who might be interested in the project please share this link:
What city do you live in?
Motorbike Make, Model & Year
URL/Link to a picture of your bike
If you don't have a photo of your bike online you can do an image search for your make/model/year and link to a bike that most closely resembles yours.
Which day(s) of the week could you take a half day off for shooting?
Weekdays work best for me. Ideally we shoot just around sunrise or sunset to get the best light.
If you have some favourite locations please share the names and a google map links below.
Share your story! Tell me who you are, what you're thinking, what makes you wanna ride. The more details the better – they help me come up with more creative ideas.
