In 2009 I photographed pro motocross racer Justin Berry of Edmond, Oklahoma for the cover of Ride Oklahoma Magazine. Justin was a local rising star at the time. We shot at his family track in north Edmond on warm winter day. Justin and several friends came out to ride in the late afternoon sun.
Today I started a personal project to photograph boots – primarily boots that people ride motorcycles in, but I will probably end up shooting all types of boots. I think boots have so much character and each boot can tell a different story. They can be rugged, dirty, rough, dainty, clean, scuffed, or a host of other conditions. The dirt can be from different parts of the world. It can be dust, mud, clay, etc. This is a pair of my wife’s motocross boots.
