Feature Shoot: The Girl on a Bike

I had the fantastic opportunity to shoot with Vanessa, aka, The Girl on a Bike just as she launched her campaign. https://www.instagram.com/thegirlonabike


Vanessa is a travel writer, speaker & columnist for Motorcycle News and with over 50 thousand followers on instagram alone, it’s fair to say she has a real influence in the world of biking.


Vanessa is great to work with and knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. Her shoots are always fun and she is a complete natural in front of the camera. What makes her stand out as a biker is that she is an extremely tall, attractive woman with an intelligent mind and most importanty, is a survivor of trauma.






Vanessa's life changed dramatically in March 2014 when she was hit by a car on her way home from work. While the initial injuries were not life-threatening, they were life-changing. During her recovery from multiple surgeries she came up with the idea to start a campaign and thus, #thegirlonabike was born.




Each shoot included her beloved #HarleyDavidson and ultimately needed to portray the sense of freedom and adventure she encounters when on the road. Since the birth of @thegirlonabike, Vanessa is always on the road, travelling the world and positively motivating others.
