Presenting our new experimental photo series, "Stories of Bike | RIDERS", featuring Erik Askin in Episode 1.
RIDERS is a new short-form series which came about from a conversation between Cam Elkins from Stories of Bike (based in Sydney, Australia) and Erik Jutras aka Mr. Pixelhead (based in San Francisco, USA). We both really enjoyed each others' work and came up with the idea to combine Erik's iconic black and white photography with Stories of Bike-style story-telling.
The RIDERS series is aiming to be a little experimental. By combining a unique photographic style, immersive sound design and minimalist synthesizer soundtrack we hope to create a different kind of moto photo essay.
Rest assured, the full Stories of Bike feature episodes are still coming mid this, along with new ROADS WE RIDE mini-series episodes also.
This series will certainly be the most collaborative Stories of Bike video to date with Erik Jutras (aka Mr. Pixelhead) contributing beautiful photography and insightful interviews with everyday riders from across the USA. In addition to Erik's images, Andrew Jones (better known as one half of world renown custom moto blog, Pipeburn.com) will be contributing original synthesizer-based underscore. My longtime partner in crime and brother Jack will be flexing his foley skills and providing an immersive soundscape.
We hope you enjoyed the first of this new series and look forward to your feedback!
