You may know that in my spare time I’m a bit of a petrol head, especially my love for Hot Rods and Motorbikes. Another hobby of mine is photography which isn’t always ideal as I’m a full-time commercial photographer and after spending all week shooting for clients I probably shouldn’t be shooting in my spare time. The last Bank Holiday weekend in May was no exception, having received my VIP/Press Pass for the Bike Shed Show London 2019 I couldn’t wait to go meet like-minded two-wheel fans and admire the art, craftsmanship and engineering skills which have gone into creating their machines. Of course, I couldn’t resist taking my camera, shoot what you love I always say!
If you have never heard of the Bike Shed Show, it is now, one of the biggest and best custom bike shows in Europe, if not the world, and this year was their 10th year yet again at the incredible Tobacco Dock! It’s billed as an experimental hospitality event, based on community and centered around motorcycle culture. I can’t think of anywhere else where you could talk bikes with strangers, admire art, have a tattoo, visit a barber shop, enjoy live music, meet large motorcycle brands and small independent bike builders, have an afternoon nap on the sofa or watch a film in the cinema, relax outside in the sunshine, have a cup of tea and biscuit or have a few drinks at the bar.
The best thing about The Bike Shed Show for me is the atmosphere which is like no other show I’ve been too. One exhibitor said to me “we’re all part of the Bike Shed family” which I for one felt part of over the entire weekend. Thanks to all those old friends and new who made it such an awesome weekend and to the Bike Shed organisers and crew - congratulations, and thank you for yet another amazing show!
