(Not really, but living in NY it always feels like it )
As of three (restful) days ago I have returned from my two week trip to Oregon; more specifically my hometown Portland. My days spent at The One Moto Show were beyond fantastic, were full of stimulation and personal enrichment which I hope in the future will serve to propel my marque as a photographer (and unofficial PR person for Black sheep Screen & Sign) forward in more professional circles... all good things willing.
I talked to countless bike builders, business representatives, and bumped into more than a few personalities representing the creme de la creme of the resurgent independent motorcycling scene. Gorging myself on Portland's own Sizzle-Pie pizza and Stumptown coffee certainly helped me to keep going through the long hours of back and forth shooting of photography throughout the two story industrial building in which SeeSee Motorcycles decided to host this year's event. I consider the treasure trove of business cards, free mags, Instagram & FB friends made, and merch I brought back with me to be a lasting souvineer of this incredible time I had, and hopefully an invaluable tool for helping me plan my way forward as I attempt to further embed myself in this community.
Aside of enjoying the pure awesomeness that was the one show, I shared the pleasure of plenty of beers and good conversations with old friends and acquaintances of mine and of my late father's... and as always it was very nice to dwell for a time in the only place I really call home.
Expect a diverse selection new photography from what I took at the one show to be uploaded here in the coming few days or so. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed being there to take it!
