Talented French photography and film-making team, Epaillard and Machado, bring us a very interesting project they recently lensed. During the 31st International Motorcycling Meeting in Faro, Portugal, they approached bikers to make non-traditional portraits of them. This event attracts some 80,000 people each year so they weren’t short on subjects to photograph!
Doing away with makeup, fashion and possibly every hint of conventional fashion beauty, they photograph some tough-looking bikers.
In fact they were all very kind and very interested in our project…so we plan to go back next year (with our Mola for sure :))
They photographed these unconventional portraits with a white 22″ mola demi and white flxGrid.
Here’s a bts video of them in action…
