Bike Tours

"Sometimes its a little better to travel than to arrive”

map_1.png Overview

 The thrill of cutting through the wind; calm cruising through through forests - our Biking Adventure Tours deliver an unforgettable experience that will leave you dreaming of a new life on the road.

We ride with you as part of the group on a motorbike. All you need to bring is a love of the open road and a free spirit.
Option of hotels pre booked, or just book as we go, wherever we end up.

Unplug and step away from day to day life. This ride is designed to change your life. It is about life on the road, meeting people, and exploring your own mind as you do something you love — ride. Our guided tours are designed to allow you to touch upon the freedom bikers feel while on the road.

This is your chance to unplug, and live in the moment. Live in the present, on the road. When do you ever get to do that?

You might know how ride a cruiser or motorbike around town, but when you hit the road with a group of other bikers & photographers  the whole atmosphere is different. Being on the road. Out for adventure. See what comes our way. Our tours are well planned trips, but not so regimented that there is no adventure. There is nothing like being on the open road out for adventure. Let’s hit the road, and leave it all behind.

All you have to do is choose to make your dream of riding on the highways or offtrack. We leave from one place and stay in a different city, town, or oasis every night. This is the real thing, life on the road, without as many dangers that follow a solo rider.

Just Ride Free! Anyone can ride a bike, but there is more out there.

Come join us for your motorbike holiday. We will have a blast. We handle it all, and answer any questions or concerns you might have. All you have to do is show up.

Conservation Photography

“the typical nature photograph shows a butterfly on a pretty flower. The conservation photograph shows the same thing, but with a bulldozer coming at it in the background. This doesn’t mean there’s no room for beautiful pictures, in fact we need beautiful images just as much as the issues. It does mean that the images exist for a reason; to save the Earth while we still can.” - Joel Sartore

 

Portraits, beyond painting a pretty visual, should give the viewer an abstracted facet of your personality.

    Creating Images that Sell !

    Do you sell, manufacture or promote products, and need professional photos to showcase them at their best? If so, allow us to help you !

    Unlike brick'n'mortar stores where the customer is able to touch and examine goods, products showcased in catalogues on web, print, and other such media need two parameters to sell : A good description of the product, and a great picture for customers to visualise. 

    The quality of the product visuals could make the difference between a high and low bid; between a sale and non-sale.

    Regardless of the kind of goods or the size of your project/firm, our product photography services can become the essential visual connection between you and your clients.

    We provide affordable solutions for your product photography needs, beginning with the photography workflows customised to suit your need, time-scale and budget, and ending with the delivery of optimally edited, high resolution images of your products.

    Services

    To suit your requirements, we can conduct creative concept-shoots with/without live models, or just plain product-shoots in appropriate table-top or mannequin setting.

    The following is a sample of the kind of products for which we undertake photography projects :  

    • Clothing, Fashion accessories, Jewellery, Watches, Costmetics & Skincare 
    • Computers, Electronics, industrial products ..
    • Furniture, Homeware, Interior decoration & furnishing
    • Raw and prepared food  
    • Packshots
