Femme et vélo is back!

The photography project, Femme et vélo is back! I initially started this project with Mike Andrick in 2011, but it has been on hiatus since early 2012. Recently, I decided it was time to give the project another shot.

The project celebrates the liberating relationship between a woman and a bicycle, as well as the style that goes along with it. Inspired by vintage images of ladies on two wheels, I work with different models and bikes for each photo shoot.

Also, I plan to feature different photography projects within the project itself. I can’t wait to share more details about it. Until then, I will leave you with this photo of Olivia taken last Sunday as well as a link to the project’s new website here!

Femme et vélo | Photo Project

Earlier this year I started a photography project called Femme et vélo with my second shooter Mike Andrick. FEV is essentially a fashion editorial project that brings together women and bicycles. The idea for the project came about when Mike and I were discussing old photographs we had seen of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn on bikes and thought how great it would be to recreate similar moments with models and vintage bicycles. We ended up meeting Shari who signed on as our wonderfully talented stylist. Without her I feel this project would have ended after only a few shoots. Shari owns a beautiful vintage clothing store called Charm School Vintage on Cesar Chavez. If you live in Austin, you should definitely check it out.

As for working on this project, I’m excited to be learning about a different approach and style to photography while having the opportunity to use several film cameras I’ve acquired over the past year including a Mamiya C330 and a Canon AE-1. Together we’ve been kicked out of a golf course and abandoned parking lot, I ripped a good pair of jeans hopping over fences, and we’ve had a couple of fantastic post-photo shoot soirees together. And it’s all been incredibly fun! This prompted me to post a collection of photos I’ve taken to celebrate what we’ve accomplished so far together. Don’t forget to check out Mike’s photos as well on the tumblr site!
