We're building a community of NYC-based motorcycle photographers, promoting interchange, common events, mentorship, education and inspiring content through a monthly, off-season photo night here in the city. The event brings together moto enthusiasts/photographers to socialize and talk about riding and shooting ... we'll have profiled photographers speaking about their experiences, inspirations and advice, and a regular panel discussing moto-photo related topics. After December events will be held the last Thursday of the month through April.
NYC's No. 1 action sports store, Filipacchi
-- based in NOLITA, Manhattan (North of Little Italy) -- have generously offered their space to host the very first Motos & Photos, Thursday, Dec. 13, and arranged for Brooklyn's Other Half Brewing
to be the event's official drinks sponsor. Food (snacks and nibbles) will be served from Spiegel NYC
, with funding from NYC Motorcyclist
and The Godspeed Company
Gracing the stage in December will be:
- Artist-photographer, long-time Miss-Fire and outspoken women's advocate Grace Roselli — NYC Motorcyclist feature |
- Dean 'Chooch' Landry, who captures timeless, character-driven portraits of man and machine through the lens of an antique 1923 Auto-Graflex camera — NYC Motorcyclist feature |
- Godspeed Co.'s Mike Higgins, a writer, photo buff and vintage moto junky who covers the local moto scene with words and images for the NYC site —
Each will get some individual time to discuss their journey. Then all three will be on a panel to discuss this month's topic:
In a world enamored with video and Instagram posts, how do you stand out as a still photographer shooting moto related images?
GET INVOLVED : SUBMIT YOUR IMAGES
Every event will encourage attendees to participate, with a monthly image submission based a on specific topic.
For December local photogs are asked to submit their best photo exemplifying what it means to ride in NYC. After all in the off season when most bikes go into storage for the winter, we all need some inspiration to hold on to.
The top five, as judged by our event committee, will be shown at the event with photogs brought up to discuss their image. Photos will also be put up in a gallery on NYCMotorcyclist.com and possibly be used in a future issue of Motoveli Magazine.
