I started shooting a lot of custom bikes in my studio a couple years ago. There are a number of great bike builders in Portland, and Jordan Hufnagel happens to be a BMX guy, who at one point lived in Austin, TX. His shop is right down the road, and he comes into the bakery downstairs all the time. At some point he hit me up to shoot his bikes. This is a custom track bike he built a few years back.
I look at the bikes more as portraits than I do products, because they’re all so unique.
