Portrait of Justin-1


To say that Justin was an impressive Motocross rider would be a failed understatement. He was absolutely amazing for his age. He also rode very safely among adult stunt riders and knew exactly what he was doing.

Justin was seven years old and lived with his four sisters, his single dad, and his grandma and grandpa. He was in the first grade and was passionate about Motocross. He also liked baseball and football. Justin was the first boy I met, since I started this portrait project, that did not like Legos. He only liked motorized bikes, bicycles and american team sports.

Justin got all A’s in school and was mechanically oriented. There was a good chance that when Justin grew up he would become a mechanical engineer.

Portrait of Michael

Michael was seventeen and went to Legacy High School in Bismarck, North Dakota, USA. His father, however, lived in Rosamond, California, USA.

Michael had been doing Motocross since a very young age and his only other interests were participating in BMX and skateboarding. Michael was also mechanical, and wanted to be either a welder or a mechanic when he completed High School.

Michael was a really great guy. I was making action shots of his incredible stunts (see below) and was amazed to see that he was so young when he took his helmet off. It was just such a pleasure being around someone who was so stable and knew exactly what he wanted in life.
