I love motorcycles – if you haven’t noticed already. I love riding bikes and I enjoy meeting other motorcycle riders. And I love taking formal portraits of motorcycle riders with my 4×5 camera.
Earlier this week I was at Bill Dragoo‘s Adventure Training Camp held in Lexington, Oklahoma. I got there at daybreak and set up to shoot portraits of people attending his class. They were learning to ride big adventure bikes off-road in the sand, dirt and mud. The training is held at Sundog ORV park, located right under the bridge that spans the South Canadian river and connects Lexington and Purcell. As riders completed their first task, they rode over and set up for a quick portrait. The next few days I will be showing portraits of the riders in no particular order.
First up is Guy Strunk on a KTM Adventure motorcycle – a “Katoom” for you none-motorcycles types. This is one of my screwups. Looks like I accidentally opened the slide on my film holder after taking this picture. Luckily the picture is still good and will just need a bit of cropping.
