The Curvy Riders is an all female motorcycle club and I was fortunate to find out about them when I photographed one of it’s members family. I always wanted to do some more motorbike shots after I took the ones of Gareth and his Ducati Diavel in the Castlefield area on Manchester. We arranged to go back to Castlefield early on a Sunday morning and of course, being Manchester, it was raining just like the last time. Liz looked at me a few times with a ‘You’re kidding’ look on her face when I suggested we try and get the bikes up onto a somewhat slippery metal footbridge and down a steep cobblestone ramp to the canal tow-path. However ‘Up for anything’ Debbie convinced her it would be OK and we got some great shots that we were all happy with.
We have arranged to do a ‘Bikes and Buns’ shoot in a couple of weeks time when the girls from the North West region will have a tea party with vintage china and loads of wonderful cake. Fingers crossed that the weather will be kind. Although the shoot may take a lot longer than predicted depending on the amount of ‘Helmut Hair’ that has to be sorted out 😀
Great news…. I’ve just arranged to photograph some bikers at Dark Hedges, one of the locations for ‘Game of Thrones’ in Northern Ireland next week when I’m there photographing a wedding. Can’t wait 😀
