Motorcycles aren’t just for riding, that’s right, they make very pretty pictures too. If you’re like me you admire motorcycles not only for the the bad-ass lifestyle that they have epitomized for decades, but for the ascetics of those gorgeous 2 wheeled machines. This concept is certainly not lost on Josiah Myers.
In 2008, Josiah revamped his college love of photography while working for an advertising company in Los Angeles where he was assigned to take photos of the events they hosted. It all started with, as Josiah remembers it, “…a crappy digital camera.” It wasn’t until they finally purchased a Canon 70D with the kit lens that his passion was officially sparked again. During this same period he started to ride, having been influenced by his company’s client, Harley Davidson. As part of his job he worked on the branding and took a safety course to learn how to ride and it was only a matter of time that he became an enthusiast.
“ When I’m riding on the road and see a fellow biker, just with a finger waive or a head nod, we both know we’re on the streets riding with a sense of freedom every time we roll that throttle and feel that engine rumble.”-Josiah Myers
He started www.motocoasthd.com in 2016. It seemed a logical and creative way to share his journeys on the road and maybe inspire others to start riding which he feels emphasizes camaraderie and he hopes his site sheds light on that part of motorcycle culture.
When not riding and snapping shots of bikes you can take advantage of Josiah’s skills for weddings, portraits and events. He’s branching out and offers his talented skills which you can preview on instagram at @josiahmy. Please check out his amazing site and the other links below.
