During the summer of 2017, Joel Grimes began his travel across the country for 300 days to photograph Harley-Davidson motorcycles and their riders. His goal was to capture the essence of the biker culture within each portrait. During a stop in Anaconda, Montana, Joel took some time to record one of his motorcycle shoots as well as his retouching workflow to show you how he did it.
Joel will go over his platography technique and how by shooting multiple frames, he can create an ad campaign quality image with just one light and a remote trigger.
Joel graduated from the University of Arizona in 1984 with a BFA in Photography, and soon established a commercial studio in Denver, Colorado. Joel has been selected as one of Canon’s exclusive Explorer Of Light photographers and a Westcott Top Pro Elite photographer. He has also been selected by Adobe as one of their Photoshop Feature Artists.
For over 30 years Joel has worked for many of the top advertising agencies and corporations across the globe. His assignments have taken him to every state across the USA and fifty countries around the globe. Joel currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
