Behind The Scenes On A Big-Budget Bike Shoot

On Location with Commercial NYC Photographer Gregor Halenda

It’s difficult not to get jealous watching this video, combining as it does 3 of my favourite things – Photography, Motorbikes and New York City – so I guess what I really need to do is to take inspiration from it instead.

Documenting the behind-the-scenes of a location shoot for a French helmet manufacturer, on the streets, bridges and wasteland of ‘The Big Apple’, it shows commercial photographer and Hasselblad Master Gregor Halenda working hard to “get the shot” as the bikers wheelie and burn-out around town.

Now I just need to figure out how I can reproduce similar images around Henley-On-Thames, with no budget, no crew, no equipment (well, some equipment but no Hasselblad!) and a shortage of bikers willing to ride in the Winter months.
