Motorcycling and photography. Never have two of my interests complimented each other so well.
The motorcycle is quite possibly the perfect platform to shoot from.
Packed carefully, you have the capacity to take more than enough photo gear for most situations.
If you enjoy landscape shooting you can ride out to a location that would be inaccessible by car, set up camp for the night, and comfortably wait for the perfect morning light.

Even in North America I found that folks were curious about what I was up to with the big loaded bike. Everything from a ghost town to a distant metropolis is fair game, Just get out of your garage and twist the throttle.

You'll often find unexpected photographic opportunities along the way. Bizarre roadside attractions, clues to the past, and plenty of local characters.

    And here's a comment from my Goggle account :-)

    And another one from my AIM account. I haven't used that one in years. Let's see if it works.

    So... is what I see posted here a sample of what's in the e-book?

  5. drrags Says:

    I want to follow this blog but I don't see a "follow" button.

  6. Anton Says:

    The RSS feed is at the top right, Maybe I have to enable a special Blogger "follow" button?
    Looking in to it now...

  7. Anton Says:

    This post is not a sample of the e-book. It was just a test of the text and photo formatting.
    Good idea though, I need to post some screen shots previewing the book pages.

    I'm planning for the blog posts to be general moto-photo tips as well as expanding on different aspects of the book.

    I'll definitely be making some "highlight reel" posts about the trip too!

    What about a facebook page, so you can bring more people to your blog?

    Hey, hadn't thought about that one. Checking into it now!

    Hey - just found your blog and I think its great! The pics are amazing and the tips are fantastic. I notice in one of your posts you list the equipment that you took. How on earth do you pack it safely on the bike?

  11. Anthony - Motojournalism Says:

    Hey Rik,

    Thanks for dropping by! I used to pack all my camera gear in Pelican cases, but it was a pain to get everything out when you needed it. More protection than you really need. Now I carry everything in the tankbag. The lenses are packed in soft lens cases and the camera just sits on a pair of gloves and a scarf. if it rains, I have a lightweight drybag to pack all three pieces in. Unless it's raining *very* hard, I don't bother with the drybag.
