Dressed to the Nines

Did a fun little shoot today for a photo project for an Australian friend today. I’ll let what it’s for and whatnot be a surprise, but I wanted to share something not often witnessed… me dressed to the nines.  I asked photographer Scott Toepfer for some assistance, so he stopped by the shop today to see what we could make happen. Scott is known for his striking motorcycle photography and video, “It’s Better in the Wind”. So I pulled out my lil red dress and got all done up. My Gasoline Glamour (gasolineglamour.com) anchor… Continue Reading »

The lovely Pandora and I went for an evening ride on this overcast and warm Ventura day. Soft clouds make for great photos, it’s a giant softbox in the sky dampening and washing all the sun around.

Born Free 6: The Ugly Ducling

Wandering the parking lot of Born Free 6 a couple weekends ago, I got excited every time I saw a cafe racer, tracker, vintage UJM, and especially Ducati. In a sea of Harley Davidson and unique choppers, they stand out like a sore thumb. Just like this custom Ducati 750SS did, which I dubbed “The Ugly Ducling”. The good looking open clutch cover, clean body, tidy undertail exhaust and bare tank kept me looking. What… what is going on here?  The seat cover looked completely unfinished, like bare foam. The tank had… Continue Reading »
