Almost Too Much Vintage

Jeff and his 1967 Shoveled inside his dad's (still operating as a car shop) 1920's gas station.

That is Jeff. He's sitting on his custom 1967 Shovelhead. Inside his dad's 1920's gas station.

We've been talking about shooting him and his bike for almost a year. He always wanted to do a couple of shots in his dad's shop, but that was always going to be secondary to other shots. Until he sent me photos of the place. It would take a set stylist months to create this look. And it's just sitting there. Looking unbelievably awesome. All. The. Time.

I had the fortune of walking into it, setting up a couple of lights and taking a photo. All while trying to capture the layers of texture and history and story. My only regret was that Jeff's father wasn't there. Would have loved to get him in there for a frame or two.
