Michael here — a passionate automotive photographer based in London, and one of the best motorcycle photographers according to BikeExif (and my mom).
I moved to the UK from my lovely city of Riga (Latvia) to study at the UCA (Rochester) and gained my BA in contemporary photography in 2010. After a few years of trial and error within different photographic genres I realised that automotive was what truly excites me. I’ve always been a petrolhead, and finally I found a way to combine my two greatest passions.
My adventures have taken me far and wide — from the galleries of Tobacco Dock, where I’ve covered the Bike Shed custom motorcycle shows, to the picturesque roads of the Basque country for the annual Wheels and Waves motorcycle festival. My lens has been covered in burnt rubber at Goodwood Festival of Speed and the dust of the Kentish hills while shooting the Malle Mile. Even cow herding in the beautiful Welsh countryside had to be done by a pair of Triumph motorcycles.
I love shooting bikes in their natural habitat and in the studio, where I can highlight their best features and angles with creative studio lighting techniques. I will find the best visual solutions for your brand whether a small independent builder, a craftsman of motorcycle accessories or a major manufacturer.
Apart from bikes, cars have also played a major role in my life. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some exciting brands including Porsche Club GB, Atalanta Motors, Luftgekühlt and Bicester Heritage. I can’t wait to collaborate with some more great people in the car industry!
