Bike Night Promotional Photo Shoot

We are looking for a few photographers to come by and shoot lots of candid shots of bikers enjoying themselves at Gainesville's largest Bike Night.  There are typically over 100 bikes and bikers just love being photographed with their bikes.  The photographs may be used in a promotional slideshow/video and all credit will be given if your photo(s) are used.

This is a unique opportunity and a time to try your hand at various lighting conditions as the sun will set during this event. 

This is a self-organized photo shoot. I will be on-site, but not taking any photographs. Feel free to introduce yourself to me. 

Be sure to get a door prize ticket as we will be giving away a lot of items.

    I thought the event was great. I was a bit nervous because the space between bikes got a bit tight.

    It was nice meeting the Meetup group members and bikers!

    Mike, you did an excellent job organizing the huge event!

    I made 2 Facebook albums with the photos I took.

    I'm glad everyone who came had some differing situations when it came to the lighting. If you arrived at 6:00, the sun was out and it was bright, but as the evening came, there was a wide variety of lighting conditions to create some incredible photos. I can't wait to see them all. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it.

    I'm interested. Mike, does it need to be candid shots? Some non-candid shots could be nice, too.

      No, it does not need to be candid shots. Feel free to introduce yourself to the bikers and ask if they would like you to take their picture. I will be announcing it to the crowd on a microphone throughout the evening.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
