I fell in love with photography as far back as I can remember. I can remember being 10 years old and being in awe of photos from magazines and starting to collect them. By my early teens my bedroom walls were covered with a collage of photographs I was inspired by. I started to show a real personal interest in photography in college when my father gave me my first camera, his film camera Canon FT/QL which I still own and continue to shoot with. From there I ended up starting to take photography more seriously and got my BFA in Art History and Photography.  After college I knew I wanted to be behind a camera, somewhere in the arena of fashion, but life unpredictably pushed me into another direction, the styling and wardrobe part of shoots. I ended up working as a wardrobe stylist for over a decade. I then segued into becoming a Photo and Style Editor for a music magazine which gave me the opportunity to combine a handful of my interests: photography, fashion and music. I handled all the imagery in the magazine, as I produced all the shoots from the cover to 8 pages of fashion.  During that time in my career, I put my camera down for awhile and focused on the production side of photo shoots. However since then I started freelancing in the commercial photo world, started shooting again and simultaneously developed a huge love for the world of two wheels, one of my favorite subcultures to shoot. In the past 6 years, I’ve been lucky enough to submerge myself in the aspects of the moto culture, the community that surrounds it and capture people, especially women doing what they love. I’m so grateful I get to be a part of such an incredible community of inspiring badass women; the friendships and bonds I’ve created because of this community has been beyond priceless. 

 

 

Photography Collaboration | Jenny Linquist

Jenny Linquist is a photographer who grew up in Colorado, but now lives in Seattle, Washington. She got started in photography at a young age when she was gifted a Polaroid camera and went on to spend much of her free time in high school developing photos in the dark room. After moving to Seattle she became obsessed with the idea of getting licensed in all sorts of skills — sailing, flying, scuba diving, semi truck driving...she started with her motorcycle license and that's where the obsession has paused for now, she's hooked. 

Motorcycles and photography combined naturally for her. When she's not road tripping on her bike, you can find Jenny in Seattle working at Pack Animal, a motorcycle travel goods company she started with her husband. For the record, she's still interested in that sailing license, but has her eyes set on some big motorcycle trips around the world first

As thousands of women on motorcycle converge in the desert for the annual Babes Ride Out campout, the desert transforms into a playground. Some women have been riding for decades but have never been able to meet so many female riders in one place. Some have only been riding for a couple years and this is the farthest road trip they have taken on their machine. Women from all walks of life and on all different bikes come together for an unforgettable weekend that is just that..”unforgettable”. 

It brings us so much joy to be able to provide a destination for so many women to create their own adventure. Whether it's a scenic ride through the national park or sharing stories and cracking beers at camp, the weekend is filled with amazing moments and interesting people. In an effort to capture some part of that, we have partnered with 9 different photographers that are sharing the experience through their lens in our 2016 Zine: Heidi Zumbrun, Geneveive Davis, Lindsay Lohden, Jenny Linquist, Kristina Fender, Andrea Dosouto, Monica Semergiu, Cindy Dulong and Yve Assad. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to these talented women so stay tuned on the blog.

We have printed a limited run of the Babes Ride Out Volume 2 Zine and hand numbered each one. As you turn the pages you are pulled right back into the memories. One of our favorite things is transitioning between each photographer's section to see their unique style. Volume 2 is absolutely beautiful and we hope you enjoy it. You can pick one up by clicking HERE.
