Motorcycle Photography

Classic & Vintage Motorcycle Photography from our Mobile Studio

We are professional photographers, a husband and wife team, who were brought up with what are now classic motorcycles and cars. Jack grew up with bikes, from a BSA to Vincent Black Shadow, and still owns the BMW R80/7 which he bought new in 1977.


Our obsession with photography has driven us in lots of directions, one of which is bike and car photography. We see motorbikes as true objects of beauty. They evoke the very essence of power and freedom. When we photograph a bike, we aim to bring out all these qualities, and capture the intricate shape and form, to create a stunning 3-dimensional image of the bike, that is world class.

Using high end professional cameras and lighting, we bring our mobile studio to you, to create brochure quality images that will last a lifetime. Whether you want a photograph of an individual bike, or a full collection, please contact us to see what we can do for you.

BMW Motorbike in a warehouse, before the photo shoot

Here is an example of the kind of situation we find ourselves in. This BMW racing bike was stored in the corner of a warehouse. In the shot on the left, the bike looks a flat 2-dimensional image. We covered up the background, and without moving the bike or camera, we lit the bike to bring out it's shape and contours. The result, on the right, is a stunning 3-dimensional image, which bears little resemblance to the original shot. This bike now looks sleek and powerful, and straight out of a brochure.

Classic Motorcycle Photography

This is what we can achieve by bringing our studio to you.


Of the 2 images above, which bike would you buy?

It has been proven that a photograph can alter the end sales value of a bike. A poor photo gets less attention, and lower sales value.

A stunning photo excites people, attracts more attention, more potential buyers, and therefore a higher price.

We are based in Derbyshire in the UK, and will travel anywhere in the world to get the shots that you want

We use high end Canon or Hasselblad cameras and lenses, with Profoto lighting equipment, regarded as the best in the business.
