Chrismas present

Look what I've found under the Christmas tree? A heavy duty boom-stand for flash lights, with a contra-weight and all! Super!! I bet this never blows away like my other stands! (now I only need a trailer and an assistant to move all this stuff. errrrr)

Thanks Santa!

New year's Bigtwin magazine

Wow, time is flying when having fun!! Tomorrow, the januari 2010 issue of Bigtwin magazine will drop in the mail box. Is it allready that far? Oh, happy Christmas then, to you all!!

"Who's that beautiful model on the cover?" I hear you asking... Well, it's professional model Roos van Leent. I photographed her with Onno 'Berserk' Wieringa's Swedish chopper at the Bigtwin Bikeshow in Rosmalen.

Bigtwin Bikeshow part I, next month more about this great event. Also some great photo's of Limpe Iven are used.

And the road-test I dit of the Triumph Rocket III at Triumph's home-base of Hinckley!

Cool cool! Harm's beautiful classic styled Triumph! Shots are made with two studio lights and batteries on location.

About a year ago this xs650 of Wilbert was shot and now he's immortalized at the pages of BeNeLux' best biker magazine!

And last but not least, one of the most extreme bikes of this year: The Codex Gigas, made by Bozzies. This white painted Harley was difficult to photograph without having over- and underexposed bits. Couldn't have done it without strobes :-)

Jekill & Hyde Panhead

Wow! right when I thought this year couldn't be any better, we shot one of the best Panheads around - made by Sjoerd of Jekill & Hyde - in this cold last month of 2009! The wather forecast was about rain, rain and more rain... But it wasn't really that bad though.
Sjoerd is a young and super-enthousiastic bloke. He took care of this great photo-location: an abandoned building with declining roofs and everything... Oh, and the step-ledder wasn't really Arbo-approved too... Photography = dangerous!

Studio lights on location, I love it!

Who says rainy days aren't good for photography? Two bare strobes on tripods were put in the middle of a deep water puddle. I'm really glad they didn't blew away :-)

Bigtwin December

Cool! A action shot of Bianca with her Walz is on the cover of the December issue of Bigtwin!!

A feature of the Looney Tunes xs650 choppers. Look at the burn-out smoke coming out of the shed :-)

Bianca and her Walz

Also this month you can find a feature about making the top-yoke of project 1OFF and two pages about kustomshop K*A*R*S

Road test Sportster Iron

Harley Davidson dealer OIT in Breda loaned us this Sporter Iron for a few hours. It isn't a 100% stock one, as the exhaust & air inlet were replaced with Screaming Eagle items (as it should). The bike handles and sounds great. I hope Sinterklaas (the Dutch Santa) has a surprise for me next weekend :-)

(Photo with two bare off shoe strobes, which give the bike that white glow on the tanks)
