Dar Holdsworth, CEO of Darwin Motorcyles, recently won second place at Sturgis with his latest creation, the Brass Balls Brawler. It is the performance version of their wildly popular Bobber motorcycle. He was invited to show the bike in The Ultimate Motorcycle magazine, formerly known as Robb Report Motorcycles. So he brought it into our studio for a six hour photo session, where we encased the bike in lights and snapped the shutter. This is a beatiful motorcycle but because of the highly reflective paint scheme, it is hard to photograph well. The Ultimate Motorcycle had very specific shots they needed for the magazine so we were not able to deviate much as to bike positioning. Dar is very happy with the shots! We included a few of him in the “b-roll” takes so that he could use for their internal marketing.
