BOXER REBELLION. Matt Hart’s Classic BMW R65 Scrambler

Written by Marlon Slack Matt Hart’s a photographer – and a damn good one at that. Trawling through his drool-worthy Instagram shows his passion for racing old Porsches and other, lesser marques. But when he was young he lived and breathed bikes, belting around on a little 80cc Yamaha. And lately the moto bug has bitten again. So much so he went out and built this, a gorgeous 1984 BMW R65 scrambler. “I’m always looking at classifieds for old cars and bikes just for curiosity,” Matt says. “I...

one from the archives: sometimes people surprise you

A different Southwest Airlines flight, October 2018. A couple of days ago, the lovely Kim brought my attention to a post I wrote 6 years ago, in June of 2013 — a post I don’t remember writing, nor do I remember the event that prompted my writing it in the first place. This is particularly strange because you would’ve thought meeting this person would be someone I’d remember.I lov...

MOTO PHOTOS. 2019 Machine Show, Braidwood, Australia

Gasoline’s ‘The Keeper’ BMW R65, made for our good mate Cam ‘Stories of Bike’ Elkins Written by Andrew Jones The same thing happened every year. I’d promise myself that I’d go to Australia’s Machine Show and then at the very last minute the reality of travelling three hours south of Sydney would kick me in the family jewels. With a six-hour round trip, it’d either be a seriously big day or I’d have to organise accommodation and/or camping gear. And as it was now just a few days before the even...

5 Pro Secrets To Getting Accepted At A Photo Stock Agency

Have you ever thought about selling your images through a photo stock agency? Here are 5 pro secrets to getting accepted. Trying to sell your images can be a very frustrating exercise. Unless you plan to be a full-time photographer, it is unlikely that you will have the time to market yourself and your images. If you don’t market yourself then buyers are not going to find your images.   There is, however, a way to make money without having to go full time. I am talking of course about being a s...

Don't Overbuy When You Buy a Car (OT)

I read a letter in Automobile magazine by a guy who said he had owned sixty cars in his life. Really? Whew. How do you do that? I'm 61, and I've owned a grand total of seven (five new, two used). Using the formula [(current age) – (age at which you were licensed to drive)] ÷ (number of cars you've owned), that's an average of 6.43 years per car for me. My current car is a 2014 model bought new at the end of 2014 for a big discount—2015 was days away and it was probably the only manual transmissi...

More About Variety in the Marketplace

A couple of further points to add to the "Wealth of Choices" arguments. First, check out this article at The Verge, the upshot of which is that Sony has surpassed Canon and Nikon in U.S. sales of full-frame cameras, reportedly in both dollars and units sold. A linked article notes that "Nikon will try to position its [Z-series] cameras head-to-head with Sony’s. (Even the names are kind of similar)," and "from the sound of it, Nikon is going to kick things off by going straight after Sony’s most ...

This Week in Photography Books: M L Casteel

  Last Friday, my dog died, and I sold my car. In the same morning. By Monday, I had a better car, and a profound sense that a new phase in my life had just begun. You can dismiss it as Taos-New-Age-mumbo-jumbo if you like, but in my experience, our lives are almost always divvied up into chapters. You move. Take a new job. Break up with your spouse. Have a falling out with your friends. Sometimes, the delineations between one iteration of our “self” and another are hard to parse. Other times, l...

2019 Bentley Continental GT First Drive: Worth the Wait

The original press drive for the all-new, 2019 Bentley Continental GT was slated for November 2017, in Barcelona, Spain. In an unusual move, Bentley pushed back the launch of the replacement for its new big coupe by six months. Why? The car wasn’t good enough. Bentley engineers wanted a home run, not a double. Rightly so, for even in these SUV-crazed times when the Bentayga is Bentley’s best-seller, the handsome new Continental GT is the heart, soul, and face of the storied brand. Historically s...

We Are Social’s Monday Mashup #378

Snapchat launches Promoted Stories with HBO Black Friday campaign , with a Story containing a simple message telling Black Friday shoppers to stay home and watch Game of Thrones instead. Previously, advertisers could only buy short, interruptive video ads inside stories, but the new “Promoted Story” feature means they are now able to reach everyone in a given country with a single promotion. Of course, the new Stories are still labeled as an ad. BMW launches ‘try-before-you-buy’ with Snapchat...

The 12 stereotypical Californians you’ll undoubtedly meet

1. The male comedian Every month you’ll receive about 10 Facebook invites to his improv shows at IO West. You’ll usually catch him sporting a hip comic logo t-shirt, beard, wild hair, and thick-rimmed glasses. He has always been a fan of Louis C.K., even before it was cool. Do not feel bad if his hellos are quick though — he is probably on his way to print a headshot and resume at Kinkos, before his commercial audition, which he will be bitter about later. 2. The executive Pedestrians beware....

The Daily Promo – Jake Stangel

Jake Stengel Who printed it? We got it printed by Chromatic in beautiful, sunny Glendale, CA.  Who designed it? Julie Johnson designed it in collaboration with Jen Jenkins, my rep at Giant Artists.  Who edited the images? Jen and I edited the images together. My work is pretty wide-ranging, so we wanted to show that aforementioned range, but also keep it feeling cohesive and of one voice. The images are primarily from a campaign I shot for OpenTable last year (the main back image...

Watchlist: The Best Motorcycle Photographers, Part II

We’re often asked what the ‘EXIF’ in Bike EXIF means. If you don’t know, it stands for ‘Exchangeable Image File format,’ referring to the data a digital camera saves when it takes a snap. Basically we care as much about photos as we do about motorcycles. Without good photos, Bike EXIF wouldn’t be half the site it is. So for the second time, we’re profiling three motorcycle photographers to watch. Last time we featured Aaron Brimhall, Jun Song and David Marvier; today we’re chatting to Anthony...

Open Mike: The Rolling Stones, and Why I Probably Won't Be Getting a New Camera

Section IYou're going to have to forgive me in advance. This post is self-indulgent, and might even qualify as "whining"—a word (like "silly") that I almost never allow commenters to apply to each other. But I don't mind applying it to myself. Y'know...if the shoe fits. My very perceptive and wise youngest brother (he's a Ph.D. psychologist and a gifted couples counselor, and he's in the right business) once said that I was great at giving other people purchase advice but terrible at knowing wha...

'638 Supercharged Horses Under The Hood, and 600 of Them Died of Boredom'

[Notice from the Editorial Early Warning Team: Not off-topic, exactly, but contains car content. NO pool, coffee, or pet content.] Ken, Bernard and I had a conversation under the "Milvus!" post speculating about who buys what Ken called "über primes"—very expensive, very heavy prime lenses, the next meant to be even better than the last. Maybe it's the same people who buy these Corvettes. Tom McParland of Jalopnik discovered that some folks buy Corvettes and then...well, never drive them. Puzzli...

TOP Classic: 'The Trough of No Value'

I find this a particularly poignant picture. It's preserved in the George Grantham Bain Collection at the Library of Congress; I found it on page five of Michael L. Carlebach's excellent American Photojournalism Comes of Age (one of my favorite books about photography, by the way). It shows the photography staff of the newspaper The New York World in 1909. Or at least we can assume the man on the left and the man on the stairs are photographers, since they're shown with cameras. I direct your a...
