Photography has become quite a thing on a bike. There are often the times when I’ll be panting up some remote road when I’ll see another cyclist coming by caring a giant SLR along.
A little self reporting here: I’ve tried my hand in it as well, but partially under the guise of running this website. As much as I try to rip it out there, I try to take in my environment on my rides and it’s fun to share photos of where your bike can take you. I guess you could do that on a motorcycle too, but then I’d feel like these guys.
Here are a few pics from people I follow and who do it very well.

Jeff Fox has a marvelous eye that catches more than just two wheels. Whether it’s landscapes, sunsets or the built environment, Jeff is always able to capture images from a unique perspective. We’re just lucky he likes bikes too.

Ryan Wilson is another local who does fantastic work with shots from around the globe. I have yet to meet him, but I would definitely say his photos are masterful. What’s even better that he uses his bike to take these shots.
Since I didn’t photograph our #goldenhour tonight, here’s one from a few weekends ago! | #LASucksForCycling #rideyourbike A photo posted by Natalie (@natalierstarr) on
From Colorado, Natalie was recently out here to explore the hills and take some great non-wintery photos of our landscapes. All of her shots from back home definitely makes you think there should be no offseason for cycling.

Although we want John Watson to continue his adventures around the globe, we’re glad that he landed in Los Angeles to mix in some local flair. The Radavist is a daily must read and if it isn’t at the top of your bookmarks, leave this page now!

Young Daniel is the student that I could never be in architecture school. Able to find the proper balance of composition and minimalism, I would love to have an empty room in my house just to frame one shot.
