Erick Runyon, Photographer – www.choppershotz.blogspot.com
Having taken his first photo as a professional, of a motorcycle, it’s obvious with his work where Erick’s passion lies. In the art of the machine. Combine that with a full-time day job as photographer for the likes of Maxim Magazine and Playboy and you’ve got a photographer who knows to accent the curves of a motorcycle much like that of a woman. Eric laughs when he says “Honestly, I like shooting the bikes because that’s what I’m passionate about. The gorgeous chicks just pay the bills.” What a hard life… You can checkout Eric’s motorcycle related work at the link above or just watch Season 2 of Café Racer!
