After 25 years as an advertising photographer, the pressures, deadlines and long hours left me a bit fried. I set aside my pro gear for a pocket camera and set out to experience the wonder of our world from the seat of an adventure motorcycle.
Solo travel by motorcycle has been an open door to stunning scenery, interesting people and amazing moments. On a bike, all one's senses are heightened and engaged, each new day opening a new world. The experience and the rush of riding are a rich backdrop for the restoration of the soul.
I hope you enjoy some of the images and stories here, but more than that I hope it inspires you to set aside fear and go forth to see God's amazing creation.
Most of the gallery images were shot with pocket or travel camera systems such as Panasonic's LX series, Sony's E-mount cameras and Fuji's X systems. The Lumix GM-5, the world's smallest interchangeable lens camera. is my current travel system. The search for smaller. lighter and better will never end...
I've chosen the BMW R1100GS and R1200GS Adventure as my travel motorcycles. They are proven, world class motorcycles specifically designed to carry riders and exploration gear in difficult terrain around the world. I load camping gear, cameras and technology on the bike and head out for adventure!
