Old School and New School…

The Bike Exchange really knows how to be some amazing motorcycles, and no two are ever alike. Check out these two brought over to me this past week.

Industrial Street Sweeper…

As a commercial photographer the market can be filled with some really interesting things to shoot, so when Johnston North America needed to shoot one of their latest industrial street sweeper machines for a national ad campaign I was ready and excited!

Johnston is an international company that builds the number one rated industrial street sweepers on the market. Big rating, big company, and this was going to be one big shoot! The shoot required both on-location images AND studio images. Even my studio was not big enough for this machine so we booked of a couple of days, rented out a production sound stage and I went to work.

The location images had to show the machine in one of its targeted habitats (construction sites) and the studio images had to show the details and build quality of the machine itself. This was an amazingly fun shoot! So with out further banter, I give you the brand new Johnston ES351 street sweeper.

P.S. Johnston was kind enough to send over a copy of one of the posters that is on display at the American Public Works Association Public Works Congress & Expo (APWA), heralded as the largest public works gathering in the world, to be held in Toronto, Ontario at the Metro Toronto Convention Center this weekend for the debut of the ES 351.


Luxury on four wheels…

Today I present a beautiful luxury automobile for your enjoyment, this an Audi A8L 4.2 Quattro. Two sun roofs, supple leather, real wood trim, a V8 engine, so many great features… What more can I say about this beautiful machine? I’ll just let the images say the rest…

Sittin’ Tall and Rugged…

This week I bring you some images of a badass Jeep Wrangler that belongs to a buddy of mine over at the local 4Wheel Parts Center. This thing is really awesome and to top it off he did all the work on it over the course of just one weekend!

Hobbies and Love…

Hello everyone, sorry for the slight delay in the blog this past week, but I have something special for you this time… Something Personal.

People that know that me well know that I have a passion for automobiles. A passion I have had since I got my first car when I was 17 years old, and ever since then I wanted a classic car. Well it took just over 15 years, but in 2012 I finally got my classic car! Her name is Lucy and she is a 1953 Ford Mainline Coupe.

But, now I was missing that special someone to go cruising with me… Well as fate would have it, just under two years later I found the love of my life, Hilary. Within six months we were engaged and set to be married this year in November!

So, it made perfect sense to me that I needed to do a photoshoot of the two of them together… Here are the photos from that shoot.

The Bike Exchange has done it again, they have built another amazing custom bike! Just to name a few features this one has a full air ride suspension, a 30″ front wheel, and one heck of an airbrushed paint jobs. The airbrushing on this bike is absolutely gorgeous, they even lined the saddle bags with velvet… Needless to say, the owner was beyond excited when he picked it up.

If you are looking for a custom bike I would highly recommend you give them a call!
