21 Years of the Yamaha R1

1998 - 2015 Yamaha R1 - Photoshoot

A few years ago private collector and club racer, Richard, contacted me to shoot his collection of Yamaha R1’s. Well fast forward 2 years after that shoot and he has expanded and updated his Yamaha collection. What we have here is his tribute to the original 1998 R1. And what better way to do that than an original 1998 Yamaha R1 and a 2015 R1M with custom paint and graphics in the 1998 R1 colour scheme. We also have his 2015 R1 Race Bike looking very different to the way it did back in 2017.

The images that follow are my tribute to these machines and one of my all time favourite motorcycle manufactures.

R1 Race Bike Photoshoot

This shoot was interesting and a lot of fun. Richard had just finished his R1 Race Bike ( his wet bike) and wanted some photos. These shots were taken just as the sun was setting which created the beautiful backlight coming from the window. I had to move fast setting up my flash's as the light was fading quickly. For the hazy effect i ended up using the bag from a vacuum cleaner which was full of dust, to shoot the dust in the air we used air from an air gun in the workshop.

Motocross at Krusic's Ride Park- Gippsland

Spent an awesome weekend away at a friends holiday house at Golden Beach in Gippsland. Had such a great time away from the city with mates, talking smack, drinking and the best part is that Ride Park was just 5 mins from our house. Ive been wanting to  check out  Krusics Ride Park  for a few years now but the distance was just too far to make a day trip out of. 

I hadn't been on a MX track in 3 years (plus i'm also really bad at MX) but had a heap of fun. After my body couldn't take any more of a beating i parked up the bike and headed out to take some photos of the proper riders. 

Does anyone want to trade MX lessons for some photos? :P
