The directive, from owner of the Bussa (my workmate) to me was to do a send up of “The Stig” from Top Gear, but motorcycle style … only too pleased to have a go! :-)


Canon 50D, 50mm f1.8

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    You both got the tilt of the head and the posture just right Ell – a real Road Warrior feel to it.

  • Hehee, thank you Rhoufi :-) … maybe I should have titled it ‘Arrogance!’ ;-) … because the image does convey that for me … but as I know the owner and know he adores his ‘Bussa’, it is true pride that he has for his machine :-) … only a few directions from me (body position, head to me) but the rest of the stance is all from my workmate :-)

    wonderful image, so expressive!

  • Thank you Charmiene, it was fun to do! We’re both nuts about motorcycles (he even more so) and of course The Stig, so the achieving the idea of the shoot was easy … not so easy was trying to avoid background distractions like street lights! ;-)
