Bahati Racing photoshoot

Upon news of one of my frequent visits to LA, pro cyclist Rahsaan Bahati hit me up to see if we could squeeze in a shoot of his new kits. Last year’s kits were the best in the biz, and now this year’s kits are even cooler… Not to mention Bahati’s fro is a bit shorter this year. Of course I took him up on the offer.

PEW PEW PEW!!

“Ahhhhhhhh!!! The world is coming to an end!! Bring out ALL of the artillery! I don’t care if it’s from WWII, Desert Storm, or Grandma’s attic! FIRE!!… Oh and call Rokhsan in too, she’ll handle it.” Rokhsan “Roxie” Shafiei, her sister (Nabaht) and I got trigger happy and decided to work on a personal project. I’d never put Roxie in the line of fire of an Apache fighter helicopter. So obviously these images were pieced together brick by brick. The 3 guns attached to Roxie were loaned to me by my friend Ti Tong (who was obviously should have been born during the Wild West era), the dress was bought by yours truly at Ross, the ground is from the Salton Sea, sky from Anaheim, tanks from the Patton Museum, and lastly I couldn’t get an Apache helicopter and HUGE explosion picture without US Government clearance, so I opted for a stock image. Once pieced together the image came out to 1.22GB, possibly a new personal record.

Another shoot at my new pad in downtown LA (freakin love this place!). This time with Lyz. Short and sweet is her name, and her personality is just the same. Believe it or not she’s an avid World of Warcraft gamer! I can hardly get my sister to play Halo 3, let alone coax a model into playing one of the most addictive life-ruining, insomnia-inducing game in existence! You can never tell a book by it’s cover… well, sometimes, but definitely not in Lyz’s case.
