Bikes and Photography 2013


Hello World! I’m so excited to put these images on the blog today. Yesterday I went to the NYC International Motorcycle Show. And, of course that means I got some great images! This year I was a little low key, and didn’t get as many shots as anticipated. Reason being, the show seemed scaled down this year. So instead of focusing on that I decided to participate a bit more. We watched a few presentations and I sat on a few dual-sports seeing how, I am looking for a new bike. So, here you go, my favorite detail images from the 2013 IMS Show at the Javits.

Morales Family | Long Island City


I was invited to to take some family portraits of Elizabeth, Aris and their bundle of joy, AJ near their home in Long Island City. I was so happy that the day finally came for us to make the shoot a reality. Every time we planned the session, it rained! We first picked a date in July, then August. On the third attempt, Hurricane Irene hit. Mother Nature finally cut us a break the forth time and we headed to Gantry State Park, which is right on the water across from FDR Drive. The view over there is something to see!

Here’s Aris Jr. Isn’t he absolutely adorable!!??

But it’s OK. When AJ went to sleep, I was able to give mom and dad the spotlight!

The spotlight’s on you Mr and Mrs Morales 😉 This is reminiscent of the last time I saw you two…

Photographers, sometimes textures can be found on location and doesn’t need to be added post-production.

Flashback: Elizabeth + Aris • Battery Gardens, NY


I feel so lucky. Tomorrow I am shooting a family session with Elizabeth, Aris and their little one, AJ. It was just last year that I designed their wedding invitations and then documented their wedding day at Battery Gardens in Battery Park City. It was one of the most fulfilling days as a photographer and I think that tomorrow’s shoot will not disappoint! I am very lucky that I have clients that enjoy my work and care about my well-being. Elizabeth and Aris were very understanding during a very rough period in my life last year; when I lost my uncle and then my grandmother within the same month. We were mid-way through designing their invites when I had to fly to the UK for my uncle’s  funeral on short notice…talk about patience!

Well, here are some previously unpublished shots of the wonderful couple from their wedding day last May. Can’t wait to meet AJ tomorrow!

“First Look” gets Aris a little choked up. AEM056wm

Their family members were so proud, it was like paparazzi on the Ritz Carlton Hotel balcony…”Over here Aris!”AEM061wm

This was not staged in any way… Liz and Aris are naturally this romantic 😉AEM141wm

Bikes and Photography @ The NYC Bike Show


This past Saturday an old friend from Junior High School and fellow photographer, Lerone Ault and I trekked through the snow and traffic to hit up the Jacob Javits Convention Center… NYC BIKE SHOW Baby!!! Bikes and Photography, all in one place! I was in heaven! Most fun I’ve had all year 🙂

This blog post will have no fluff. Lets get straight to the pictures that were all detail shots taken with my macro lens.

The Oz Trucking Bike custom painted by MackAir out of Florida.

A booth vendor with all sorts of bike parts on sale.

The bike was leaning, not me : )

A dope, reflection shot of Lerone and I on the “Cobra” bike. This may make it to my banner for the blog! Epitomizes my photography style!!

A beautiful lady (with her cutie pie son) from Blaque Pearls MC out of Harlem. Lerone just loved her dreads…as did I. I can’t imagine how freaking sexy she looks when she rides!

This by far, is one of my FAVORITE PICS of ALL TIME!!! It was taken at the Nikko MotoRacing booth. I loves (yes, loves) it! I nearly missed this shot, bc at one point we were at one side of the booth talking with the exhibitor (read: Lerone talking to the exhibitor, me checking my makeup in the mirror LOL!!!). It wasn’t until we went full circle around the showroom floor then double backed that I stumbled upon this gem, metered it and snapped a few. Will you just look at that bokeh … I will be ordering this as a large scale print very soon!

The US Marine Corp Bike on a rotating display. It took a lot of acrobatics to get this shot, that and actually crossing the barricades they had up 🙂  Anything for the picture!! Gotta love the uniform button detail on the frame.

Tattoo Tony, well what can I say about this photo, besides HE”S HOT!!! and trust me I’m not your typical biker chick that loves tats and all that, because I don’t, but HE’s HOTTTTTT…Long hair don’t care…I love it! I cut a couple of people off just to get this pic. How gracious he was to pose for me and it looks like he knows his angles too!  Check out his shop Under My Skin in NJ.

This was one of the bikes in the Great Biker Build Off Competition to be aired on the Discovery Channel. “Details” is my middle name.

Another detail pic of the Donkey Punch Bike built by Chaos Cycles out of LI. They actually won the competition! Here’s George from Chaos sitting on “my” bike for an interview at the show. link to video.

Lerone capturing “Jewel” from Lady Unity Rydaz out of New Jersey.

As always, feel free to download any items you’d like as wallpaper by going to the flickr page. Message me if you’d like to purchase a print to hang or to give as a gift! Oh and here’s one of me with an old riding buddy from Ruff Ryderz (credit: JR). Have fun looking and downloading and see you next year, Bike Show!!
