Introduction - The Foundation

Our motorcycles give us a unique ability to have real adventure and
authentic explorations. These agile vehicles allow us to get far out
into the world. We’ll see the sun crest a ridge in the morning, we’ll
ride hundreds of miles over challenging and varied landscapes,
discover a new town, meet interesting people, then watch the sun
drop into the ocean in the evening.

We take pictures of our rides to remember the incredible time
we’ve had and to share stories with our friends. But often we get
back home, disappointed to find that the photos just aren’t as good
as when we were there. How often have we heard “Sorry for the
bad photo.” “It’s steeper than it looks.” or “The photo doesn’t do
the place justice.”

This book is not about equipment. This book is about taking better
photos with the camera you have now. The basic techniques covered
here will improve your photos whether you are using a $5000
digital SLR or the camera of your mobile phone. Knowing how
to choose a subject and compose an image will have the greatest
impact on the success of your photography.

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.
