We never seem to have enough time to shoot around here but testing the new firmware was a good excuse to take some pictures. It worked out well as our friends at the Classic Bike Experience had a beautifully restored ’69 Norton Commando they wanted some pictures of and dropped it off at our studio for a few days. (We photographed another Commando in 2011 and wrote about it here). Click here for a Behind-the-Scenes look at the shoot.
Occasionally we rip ourselves away from our desks to actually use all the amazing gear we have around the office. Here’s the story of one such occasion.
Last spring we were in a meeting talking about sourcing new products when the conversation shifted to one of my other favorite subjects – motorcycles. Turns out our visitor, Jack, also happens to own a little motorbike restoration shop nearby called The Classic Bike Experience that specializes in bringing British bikes back to life. I had recently been over to Birmingham, UK for the Focus on Imaging show and happened upon the National Motorcycle Museum so I was acutely aware of how cool old British bikes are. At the end of the meeting, I said if there is a bike they were interested in shooting to give me a call and we’ll bring it into our studio.
