At the time of our meeting, Dave was an officer with California Highway Patrol for eight years, and started motorcycle patrol duty about six years prior.
Dave always had a loved motorcycles and had been riding motorcycles since he was ten years old, “I have a passion for riding motorcycles…I absolutely love my job and the fact that I can drive a motorcycle all day is a cherry on top.”
Dave was originally from Central Valley/Bakersfield area.
When I was shooting his portrait, I noticed that Dave didn’t have his helmet. His helmet was attached via a safety lock on to the frame of his motorcycle. Below is a picture of that lock. I thought it was robust looking, and very pragmatic.
