The Woman Behind the Women’s Moto Exhibit

My friends, I have featured Lanakila MacNaughton’s photography from her project the Women’s Moto Exhibit many many times, but this time you get to see the woman behind the lens. This look behind the scenes literally gave me goosebumps- Austin Will perfectly captured the essence of art, artist, and subjects. I got chills and they’re multiplyin’!

“I’m shooting medium format… film on Hassleblad. I’m manually focusing on a moving at 40 or 50 miles an hour.”

For those of you who haven’t fiddled with this style photography (or even much at all for that matter) you see everything in the frame BACKWARDS, and the focal plane is very fine and exact. This woman is a goddess with a camera. See more stills and watch the amazing video, full of strong, independent, and beautiful motorcycling women.

The work of Redding, CA based photographer Garrett Meyers speaks volumes with silence.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. This may be true, but one has to believe that those thousand words are composed much more clearly and with much more verbose descriptions by photographers with heavy talent as opposed to hobbyists who lack the je ne sais quoi the it takes to create captivating images. Go browse through Garrett’s portfolio (website / tumblr) and prepare to feel a sense of oneness with his subjects. 

An Interview with Photographer Ray Gordon

Ever wanted to know a magician’s secrets? I’ll admit, seeing Ray Gordon’s photography over the years has often left me in a state of wonder. How, why, where?! What on earth came upon someone and compelled them to drive a Camaro off a cliff? I got the chance to ask him all these questions and more.

His project THROTTLED was most recently displayed at the fourth annual One Motorcycle Show in February (check out my review of the One Moto 2013 here) and helped set the tone for the entire event. Chances are you’ve seen his work before- like in the shot I posted of Tori and Amy riding a minibike on the beach, or on countless motorcycle and hotrod websites.

Check out my new desktop! Amazing moto wallpaper (you can find em at BikeEXIF ) from one of my favorite photographers, Scott Pommier (www.scottpommier.com). He continually releases more entrancing and timeless images of motorcycles and their riders than those before. Get some! 
I first saw Scott’s work on The Selvedge Yard and remember thinking, “holy crap, when were these taken?” His images and subjects were so timeless and classic, I was surprised to find they were all fairly recent.
(P.S. Scott is originally from Vancouver, WA… a whopping 10 minutes from me! Turns out there’s a lot of talent from this neck of the woods.)
