This project was a special one for me personally. When I approached Jimmy Schaffrath with the idea, he immediately said yes. Can't thank him enough for his hard work! He killed it on all fronts. The initial concept has changed dramatically, but the essence is still the same. Great shots of the city, supported with some basic riding to deliver the story I wanted to tell. Bad weather and our schedules made it hard to get the content we were looking for but I think we managed to get a great result!
