Lee’s Ducati 1299 Panigale S

My friend Lee picked up a new Ducati motorcycle, but when he contacted me to take some shots of it, I wasn’t prepared for the awesomeness that I would soon behold.

The EP3 Kings

Last month, together my NWMotiv.com partner in crime, Josh Mackey, photographed a set of features for NWMotiv that we called “theKings,” comprised of some of the best Hondas that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Mackey took the majority of the workload, while staff photographers Vinnie Nguyen and Ken Arnold II assisted with lighting and staff videographer James Whelan recorded this behind-the-scenes video:
