ProBikeART – Stunning Studio Shots of your Scoot

b16555So you’ve spent a few quid getting your scoot the way you want it… why not spend a few more documenting it for posterity? You could take some snaps yourself, or do it properly (your the kind of person that does things properly, right?), and get it shot professionally in a studio… except most studios are set up to shoot people, not motorcycles and scooters.

That’s where ProBikeArt comes into the picture. Professional studio photography that captures the lines and details of your Lambretta in the best light. Photographer Ian Daisley specialises in shooting classic, racing and cherished motorcycles – but he’s shot a few Lambrettas – as you can see!eg5a9381eg5a9322eg5a9333

A basic studio session costs just £145… including your finished digital images supplied on disk, and a 300x400mm framed fine art print.

ProBikeArt are located near Matlock in Derbyshire. Get in touch with them here.

Damm fine photography

lightbox_brightonI’ve often featured the work of talented photographers on the blog, and Dammo is the latest of the bunch. Dammo specialises in capturing British subcultures with their inherent diversity, quirkiness and definitive style. The majority of his work reflects his own personal interests in music and cultural movements: be it Northern Soul, Mod, Rockabilly, 50s R&B or the Scooter Scene. However, individual commissions will be considered.

Photography with Soul.

Dammo’s photography is stylish, crisp and detailed, in terms of tone and colour, offering a document of time and place. There is a vintage flavour to his work, but with a fresh modern perspective, demonstrating a graphic designers eye, combined with a photographers passion for the subject and the art of making the observer feel present in the event. He offers bespoke quality pictures depicting events and people in a way that illustrates the emotion and intrinsic timeless nature of British sub cultural movements, whether it be for editorial purposes, display or web.

Book him, Dammo.

Emme Lou’s Lambretta Imagery

Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.29.06I 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! Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.27.17  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 🙂Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.25.50Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.20Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.39Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.26.50Over 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.Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.23.51Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.24.17Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 17.25.20

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.

 

 

 

Just a girl on a Lambretta

9fec06a32197cb28476e4911024c2c9cPhew, I was getting a bit panicky there. The last post didn’t include a single Lambretta. So here’s a nice pic of a nice girl on a nice Lammie. Which is nice.

It’s an image by famous French photographer Jean-Francois Jonvelle. Here’s his website.

The Scootographer

Scootographer SXI’ve written about a scooter photographer before, Paul Hart, at Vespamore. His blog constantly features beautiful scooter imagery, a lot of it of V#spa’s though… oh well, you can’t have everything. Paul has recently published a book of his photography, which you can get hold of here. And of course, the other side of the channel is that talented frenchman Laurent Callot, whose work I’ve featured a couple of times.

Back in blighty, there’s a new kid on the block, and he’s giving Paul a run for his money. Domonic Hindle is a 17 year old student, with a penchant for scooters. Well, the whole mod lifestyle, the clothes and the music really, but mainly the scooters. And boy, can he take a decent snap. I reckon he’s got the eye of a scooterist too… focusing on what you really want to see, and bringing out things you’ve missed. As well as featuring on many blogs, Domonic’s work has featured on the Fred Perry and Rimini Lambretta websites.

If you’re a regular reader, you might recognise the rather lovely Series 1 in the top pick. It’s a scoot I featured in a post called ” Lovely Series 1” funnily enough.Scootographer Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 14.20.00 Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 14.20.24 Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 14.21.24 Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 14.23.25 Screen shot 2013-06-07 at 14.24.16If you like the images I’ve posted, and if you read this blog, why wouldn’t you… you can order prints. Some of these shots would look fantastic on your wall, I bet!

Or why not book Dominic to take some classy shots of your pride and joy. If you’ve spent a fortune restoring a scoot, aren’t some quality images worth spending a few quid on?
