Cruisin’ the Strand

Raleigh photographer Bryan Regan spends a lot of his time photographing CEOs, doctors, lawyers and people in suits, but he’s always been attracted to fringe groups and the people associated with them. That’s why he recently jumped at the opportunity to shoot a personal project during Myrtle Beach Bike Week, a bi-annual motorcycle rally that is anything but ordinary.

After approval from his wife and a 12-mile, 1 ½ hour drive in heavy traffic, Bryan arrived at Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, where most of the Bike Week action takes place.

Locals have cracked down on the infamous event since it first began, but things can still get crazy:

Myrtle Beach is a strange place by itself — even without the bikers. At night the bikers would cruise up and down the strand, and people would sit in front of their motels and cheer and holler as they drove by.

Although he came prepared with two lights, stands and battery packs, the lack of space to set up and the commotion of the event rendered his lighting equipment useless, so he ended up shooting with available light. The final images showcase the colorful characters and scenes that are synonymous with Bike Week. So far, Bryan has had a positive response to the images, and has even inspired some friends to plan a trip to Bike Week next year.

Gotham Greens

Mark Weinberg has been buying Gotham Greens products at his Brooklyn local grocery store for quite some time, as it’s not only the best, but also the least expensive.

As it turns out, Gotham Greens has provided Mark with a lot more than lettuce. It gave him the inspiration for a personal project, which would eventually turn into paid work for three different publications, the first being Whole Foods’ online magazine, Dark Rye.

Gotham Greens isn’t your ordinary greenhouse. It lives on the roof of an old bowling alley in Brooklyn, with the tagline “extraordinarily fresh produce, grown in extraordinarily fresh places.”

Mark headed to the rooftop on a day when the founders could be there and he wouldn’t be too much of an interruption to the greenhouse’s production schedule. The photos were shot on a cold winter day, so naturally he had to let his equipment acclimate to avoid condensation from the warm and humid greenhouse.

Since Whole Foods picked up the project, they have partnered up with Gotham Greens to build a brand new grocery store with a large new greenhouse on the roof, which Mark photographed for them just a few months ago.

In addition to Dark Rye, the images were published by Audi Magazine in both Brazil and Italy. Mark was happy with how the project turned out:

I am grateful that the projects turned out the way it did. I know I can’t always count on three publications publishing my personal projects in the future, but it did make me think how pursuing meaningful projects can attract interest.
