MOTO PHOTOS: 2018 Motor Bike Expo, Verona, Italy

Posted on April 10, 2018 by Andrew in Other. No Comments

After you’ve been to more than your fair share of bike shows, it’s easy to become a little jaded about the whole shebang. But within 30 minutes of arriving at the MBE show, I was rethinking my convictions quicker than a televangelist at a jelly wrestling contest. There is a better way, and I think MBE has found it…

MOTO PHOTOS: Germany’s Christine Gabler

Posted on February 4, 2018 by Andrew in Event, Other, Racer. 11 comments

It’s with a little embarrassment and an apology to 50% of the world’s population that we admit to not having ever featured a female photographer in our Moto Photos weekend specials. Well, not until now that is. On our recent trip to Italy’s MBE Show…

MOTO PHOTOS: 2017 Kustomfest Show, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Posted on October 29, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 19 comments

In our second big South-East Asian event for 2017, and easily one of the best shows all year, October saw us in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, for two days of custom motorcycle wet dreams, beers and sate sticks all wrapped up in a very cool hoedown called ‘Kustomfest’. We came, we saw, we wandered. And at the end of it, we were glad we did.

MOTO PHOTOS: California’s Shaik Ridzwan

Posted on October 21, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 14 comments

Time for a quick confession. Shaik Ridzwan was probably the first photographer featured on Pipeburn who really made us sit up and take notice. Yes, the fact that he also shot Max Hazan’s bikes can’t have hurt things – but in my mind Shaik was the one who opened our eyes to the fact that shooting bikes could be a whole lot more than wheeling it out on the driveway and telling the local kids to get out of the shot. Here’s a collection of his best ever photos, assembled by the man himself.

Time for another instalment of our regular ‘Moto Photos’ stories. Tonight it’s South Africa’s turn in the spotlight; specifically Cape Town’s crack lensman, Devin Paisley. His recent shoot for local shop Hutchbilt really impressed us. So much so, we wanted to see what other goodies he had in his camera case. So here they are. Enjoy.

In this, the latest installment of our series on the world’s best moto photographers, we spoke to Californian Stan Evans on his work shooting some of the world’s best customisers, riders and bikes. While you couldn’t hope to find a more down-to-earth guys, his work speaks for itself; his black and white shots of Max Hazan are some of the best we’ve ever seen. We hope you agree.

MOTO PHOTOS: Australia’s Jason Lau

Posted on September 9, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 13 comments

On our recent trip across the Rajasthan Desert on Royal Enfields, we were lucky enough to have all the action, all the spills and all the general lunatic hi jinx captured by Melbourne photographer Jason Lau. His take on the journey and the impressive shots he managed to capture really piqued our interest. And looking through his back catalogue is an eye-opening experience, too. The sheer number of photos in there that we’d admired before but never connected back to him is seriously impressive. Talk about a quiet achiever. So we asked him for his best 15 shots.

MOTO PHOTOS: Australia’s Dean Walters

Posted on September 2, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 8 comments

During our recent trip to Australia’s Broken Hill on Triumph’s Bobber, we were lucky enough to be able to work with Dean Walters, a local Melbourne photographer who seems to have quite the knack with cameras and motorcycles. We got to spend the week with him while bashing around the Aussie desert and trying not to crash bikes we didn’t own. After seeing him in action, we can say that the guy’s definitely ‘got the gift’. Watching him turn two idiots messing around in the dirt into jaw-dropping shots was a sheer pleasure to behold. So we asked him to give us his best-ever shots and a quick interview; this is what we got.

We were lucky enough to be able to attend Malaysia’s 6th annual Art of Speed show in Kuala Lumpur last month. Rumour suggested that it was up their with the best Asian shows. After a long weekend full of local custom culture, food, beer, bona fide moto celebs and even a decent ride into the Malaysian countryside, we were just about ready to open a new Kuala Lumpur office.

MOTO PHOTOS: Erick Runyon from Gears+Glory

Posted on August 12, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 10 comments

It’s 2011 and the custom bike world is beside itself with the Yamaha-based creations of one Greg Hageman, a.k.a. ‘Doc’s Chops’. From what was previously a laughably bad Yamaha Virago, Greg had built a custom that seemed to have somehow made the bike look very, very cool. At around the same time, a young New Yorker called Maxwell Hazan wheeled his very first custom bike out of a small Brooklyn shop and we all know how that turned out – mainly due to the fact that a certain photographer had the wherewithal to recognise genius when they saw it. And the person responsible for taking the photos of these bikes that changed the custom scene for ever? Meet Florida’s Erick Runyon.
