This was my first photo shoot with Tommy Bolton, owner of Tombo Racing. I met Tommy at Thunder Valley Raceway during a previous assignment and we decided to feature one of his bikes in Ride Oklahoma Magazine. I met Tommy and his customers “Murder” and “Ratz” – yes, that is their street nickname – in downtown Oklahoma City one evening for this photo shoot. Everything went smoothly and we had fun shooting the photos. Tommy became a good friend later and I always tell him this photo is my “don’t mess with James” photo. If anyone wants to mess with me, I just show them the photo and say “meet my friends Tommy, Murder and Ratz”!
NOTE: Back when I took this shot I was using a Nikon D2x. It had terrible low ISO noise. This shot is at ISO-250 and is full of noise. Thank goodness for the D3!
