|Oz Lang, Aaron Hiatt, Scooter Cannonball Run 2010|
As my inaugural blog post on Oz Lang Photography, I wanted to to let you all know about a personal photography assignment I've taken up for the month of April. This one's got a bit of history.
As you may have noticed, a lot of my motorsports photography involves scooters (primarily Vespas). I have had a passion for motorscooters - I started riding in 2004 and found myself in a vibrant community of people from a wide array of backgrounds and interests. I've twice participated in a cross-country endurance rally called the Scooter Cannonball Run, once in 2008 and again in 2010. For a variety of reasons, I cannot participate in this year's bi-annual event, but I still want to be part of it: this time as a documentarian.
For this year's event, Oz Lang Photography will be at the starting line of the SCR2012, and taking rider portraits. I want to capture the excitement, anticipation, and sense of impending adventure that I know I had myself. It'll be a trip, seeing this and not participating, but there's always 2014. I look forward to sharing this personal assignment with you all, and until then, you know where to find us.
Due to this assignment, Oz Lang Photography will be unavailable for bookings the weekend of 4/20-4/22, 2012.
