Motorcycle Portrait Photography – As a passionate automotive and portrait photographer in London, I had the privilege of embarking on a thrilling photography project called Moto Photo Shoot.
Fuelled by my desire to fuse the world of motorcycling with urban art, I gathered motorcycle enthusiasts from London and its surrounding areas for a weekly photo shoot in the iconic Fleet St. Hill graffiti underpass in Shoreditch.
Armed with my trusted Canon EOS R camera and the Canon RF 24-105 f4L IS USM lens, along with Neewer equipment, I set out to create mesmerising urban portraits that celebrate the raw power and resilience of these riders against the backdrop of London’s vibrant street art.
Exploring the Intersection of Motorcycle Portrait Photography
As an automotive and portrait photographer and a motorcyclist myself, motorcycle photography has always intrigued me.
Through my lens, I seize the raw exhilaration, limitless liberty, and deep camaraderie that come with every motorcycle ride in a single powerful snapshot.
With an eye for the vibrant energy of this art form, I took it upon myself to capture London’s bikers in a light that genuinely radiates their zeal.
Moto Photo Shoot became my canvas to blend their love for two wheels with the vibrant street art of Fleet St. Hill underpass.
Bringing Motorcycle Portraits to Life
As the visionary behind “Moto Photo Shoot,” I have always been fascinated by the art of portraiture. My innate ability to capture the essence of my subjects allows me to portray these motorcyclists in their element – fierce, determined, and full of life.
Armed with my Canon EOS R camera, known for its remarkable capabilities, and the versatile Canon RF 24-105 f4L IS USM lens, I aimed to create images that tell stories of strength and passion.
The Vibrant Canvas of Shoreditch
The underpass at Fleet St. Hill in Shoreditch served as the perfect backdrop for my motorcycle portraits. The colourful graffiti brought the portraits to life with the vibrant spirit of London.
Every paint stroke I applied not only added more depth but also catapulted those portraits into a whole new realm of creativity and self-expression.
Adding Drama and Intensity
To add drama and intensity to the portraits, I incorporated smoke machines and smoke grenades into the photo shoots.
This created an ambiance that perfectly reflected the daring spirit of the motorcyclists.
Using Neewer’s tools, such as lights and stands, I turned my creative concepts into tangible reality, with each shot standing out as its own piece of art.

Week after week, as the clock struck 9 pm, the Fleet St. Hill underpass came alive with the roaring sounds of motorcycles. Around 5-6 motorcycle enthusiasts arrived on their cherished bikes, and I eagerly captured their essence through my lens.
Guiding them into poses that showcased their personalities and passions, I immortalised their love for motorcycling against the vibrant urban backdrop.
The end game? Eye-catching portraits capturing their shared love for the thrill of motorcycling.
