A personal Project

After 2 years away from my homeland, France, I had the crazy idea to go back there for a month and do a tour de France with my old Honda Cafe Racer CB750 of 1982.The goal of this project was not to participate the Moto Tour but to imitate a Tour de France in motorcycle independently. I aim to visit the country from north to south, west to east and concurrently using my skills as a photographer and designer to share my adventure online.The concept is simple: Ride, Shoot and Share. A unique experience, one in a life time…

Mixing Work & Hobbies

From a biker family, I discovered the pleasure of the 2 wheel lifesyle from a very early age. My first kms experienced was behind my dad as a pillion at age 6 before getting my first motorbike at age 14 to ride to school. Curious and versatile, I found very quickly my career as a teenager by creating visual content and sharing it online. Also, I used my skills as a photographer during my work for different events (e.g Harley Davidson shooting).My goal with this project was to combine my two hobbies and to improve myself as a designer, photographer and also rider.

I RIDE

The ride is an old Honda CB750 bold d\’or of 1982, customized as a Laverda look alike Cafe Racer. This motorbike was sleeping in my parent\’s garage while I was living in Sydney Australia. I couldn\’t sell the CB when I left France for Sydney.

I SHOOT

As a photographer, I used my experience and skills to document my road trip. A GoPro, an iPhone and a Nikon D600 with a 24-70 F2.8 lens helped me catch my adventure.

I SHARE

Social Network platforms like Facebook, instagram or Google+ helped me documenting the road trip in live for my family and friends, in France but also in Australia.
