Shooting Daytona Bike Week 2016
Another morning I was up early to photograph a custom built Indian Motorcycle underneath a bridge as I waited for the perfect moment when the sun would start to bathe the underneath of the bridge structure.
I also worked along side the great creative talents over at Kuryakyn to help them with the launch of a new bike created to celebrate 35 years of The Buffalo Chip Campground. We shot right on the beach as the sun was setting that day.
These experiences are not only immortalized on digital film, but also more importantly imprinted in my memory and heart. These are the moments that I as a person, and a photographer live for. I also found myself working with over 30 journalists from around the world as they got to experience the Victory Octane and Indian Springfield new model motorcycles for the first time. There is an excitement at a new model press launch that can only be shared via imagery. Words come in at a close second, but to a visual person, imagery is where it is.
In order to keep up on these fast pace shoots having the proper gear is very important to me, and I have lots of great gear that I rely on to help me capture these moments that are imperative to telling the story.
I also rely on Pelican for the amazing sturdy cases, which also help me get the height I need, as I am what I like to call “vertically challenged.”
I am fully dependent on my Peak design camera clip system and camera straps. Just as a motorcycle rider expects quality and performance from the parts he or she chooses to ride with, I expect the same quality from the gear I choose to shoot with. I close out another Daytona Bike Week with amazing memories, friendships and most importantly great images.
