I came across Emma’s photography on Flickr, and had to feature it on the blog! A freelance photographer, based in Birmingham, she has had a passion for bikes and scooters since she was a young girl… even burning her leg on the exhaust of her dad’s Honda CB250N Superdream as girl didn’t put her off! I’m sure you’ll agree from the stunning images here, that Emma has a great ‘eye’ and really captures the essence of the machines she shoots. Of course having some fantastic scoots to shoot doesn’t hurt 🙂Over the last few years Emma’s photography career has started to take off, and she has recently acquired a contract with a scooter restoration specialist… so hopefully you’ll be seeing a lot more of her work soon… there’s talk of a range of products for the Lambretta market, and I’ll feature what I can on the blog.
Emma’s scooter photography is just the tip of the iceberg, she’s happy to photograph almost anything, if you’ve got a project for her, get in touch through her Flickr account, here, where you’ll find more Lambretta imagery and get a flavour of her other work.
As usual with these things, please respect the copyright of the work, and don’t use any of the imagery without asking. © All rights reserved, Emme-Lou.
Not a lot to add to this, but a nice shot of a nice scoot. By Keith Nairn, on Flickr, his photostream is worth checking out if you, like me, like classic bikes (some nice Laverdas for instance) and other mechanical ‘boys toys’.
Remember that shot I posted of an Agrati Capri and a London Doubledecker? Yeah, you do… this one. Well, Dave, who shot it got in touch (ages ago, actually… but I’ve been busy!) to let me know he had another shot of the same scoot. As I alluded to earlier… a lovely little scooter the Capri, beautiful lines, and you can often pick them up for peanuts (well peanuts compared to what you’d pay for a Lambretta) on eBay. Parts are obviously not as easy to get hold of as a Lammie, but the internet has made that a bit easier too…
Anyway, thanks Dave… check out more of his pics on Flickr here. Check out the “Abandoned scooter, two cats and a barbecue” shot!
Well, that’s what I thought when I first saw this pic… but that’s not a Lammie… too skinny a derriere for a Series 2… My guess would be an Agrati Capri… One of the few Lambretta & V*spa competitors that could hold a candle to them in the industrial design stakes.
Anyway, whatever the scooter, it’s a wonderful image, shot by davekpcv on Flickr.
