Harley documentary

I had the pleasure of shooting Harley Davidson’s European events last year and I’m really pleased to say that I’ll be shooting for them again in 2010. On top of the event work I’m also going to be riding my KTM from the UK to St Tropez with a group of Harley riders covering the trip for a small documentary. Over the next couple of months I’m going to be putting together a shooting kit thats suitable to be carried on the bike.

I’m quite interested in shooting the trip on my 5D if canon release the 25p firmware in time, either that or get a 7D for the project. I’ll be testing out some options over the next few weeks and experimenting with various bits of kit that and workflow solutions so stay tuned and I’ll post my findings as the project progresses.

    I look forward to stealing any good ideas you may discover, my friend and co pilot Chris is about to dive into the 5D experience. It’s great to find out we both share a passion for bikes and travel.

    • Hi Darren.

      I’ve got a few ideas already but the first thing I need to do is get the bike sorted. I currently own a KTM 950 Supermoto but that’s not going to be at all suitable so I’m trying to decide between trading it in for an adventure as shown above or hiring a bike for the job.

      Kit wise I need to do a few practical tests with the 5D, I like the way the images look but I haven’t used it enough to be confident that it is suitable for the rigours of event work.

      It’s going to be fun experimenting though!

        A year ago I had a 950 Supermoto before my 1200 and I thought it was an absolute screamer of a bike. I traded both the supermoto and my 950 Adventure for my Beemer. If you want a good bike for travelling and everything else in fact, you won’t go far wrong with the GSA.

    Hi Paul,
    Your trip to St.Tropez sounds like fun. I too will be riding down at the same time. I was there last year and loved it.
    I own a mobile home in Port Grimaud a mile from the site. If you need any information,that may help you…please mail me.
    Cheers, Sam

    • Hi Sam, if you see me wandering around the event please give me a shout. Maybe I’ll see you on the road, I should be easy to spot as I’ll have a GoPro camera stuck on top of my helmet :)
