Motorcycling has always given off an air of romanticism . Whether it's a lust for freedom, the open road, rebellion by harnessing a machine deemed dangerous by society, or the comradery of fellow riders. There’s no shortage of reasons that explain our draw to motorcycling.

For nearly all of us, there is a defining moment that began our love affair with motorcycles. For some it could have been a photograph, a scene in a movie, a moment in life where a motorcycle left an indelible mark.

The advent of social media has given many talented commercial and lifestyle photographers an instant outlet and ability to showcase their work while influencing and shaping the modern image of motorcycling. It's important to recognize these talented creatives and the impact their contribution of art has on our industry.

Austin King's story is more about the regular man who finds comfort and expression in photography. An Aerospace Manufacturing Engineer by day, Austin awaits the weekend to create his rich and dynamic images of dual sport and overland photography.

Austin has always had a prepencity to explore the outdoors and pretty much anything with wheels and a motor. Automobiles and motorcycles have always been a love of his, and in recent years, motorcycle riding, overlanding, and camping have allowed him to experience some incredible places. Those experiences in recent years led him to pick up a camera and begin documenting his travels and sharing those moments with others.
