I little while ago (like several months) I shot some stuff for rider Jason Contreras. Jason rides bikes during the summer and has been bugging me for quite a while to do this shoot, but our schedules never really lined up. The plan was to shoot some stunt riding, but I think we were only like 10 minutes in before a sheriff's deputy showed up and gave us a stern talking to. It was pretty tense for a second, but luckily Jason wasn't on the bike and the officer was cool.

At that point, we switched plans and shot some images of Jason on the bike in his garage and of the bike outside against setting sun.

Here are a few of the heroes from the shoot. The setup was pretty simple, a single 3x4' softbox overhead with a Norman LS500 head in it at -1, and another LS54 on each side with a 5" reflector on each to give a nice angular rim.

The rims were driven by a Norman 808m 800w/s pack and the key was driven another standard Norman 808 pack.

There are a few other interesting images from this shoot, but unfortunately, they will probably never see the light of day.

More to come, check back soon. -J.H.
