What an adventure. Nearly 1000 miles, 2000+ pictures, and 100+ drinks later I checked off one of my more memorable photography assignments. Did I mention I love my job? This is practically part 2 of my previous blog post, but this time I get to follow the guys down to Daytona Beach, FL for Bike Week. This was a big project involving RIDES Magazine and Harley-Davidson. For 3 days and 2 nights we followed around 8 Atlanta Harley-Davidson riders, and documented their experience during Daytona Bike Week. The most nerve-racking thing was piloting a big GMC Acadia SUV through Daytona Beach with literally 1000’s of rough looking bikers… I did NOT want to piss them off. I’m a skinny wanna-be pro cyclist that hasn’t done any (real) prison time, so I’m kind of lacking in the bad-ass department. BIG thanks to Andrew Link, Michael Crenshaw, and the rest of the RIDES Magazine crew for the opportunity.
Big thanks to my LOVELY assistant Sarah posing for a shoot (I’m very biased). Her job practically turned from holding lights, to being the morale booster for the weekend. “Everybody loves Sarah”, or as she likes to call herself “Lil Swole”. More to come on these shots later!
