My Scooter Fashion Photos Shoot

You Better WORK!

Being that I am going to be 51, and I have not had a professional photo taken of me since a glamor shot session in the 1990's. I decided to get photos of me on my scooter. 

This all started when we went to a rat racer rally in Morris Illinois. Great old cars and trucks and classic clothes and stuff. There was a "Pin-up" Photographer there, Harlow House. 

I liked her style and her work so I took her card and set up a session. The one caveat was, I wanted to be on my scooter.

I am what is called, "Artistic" so I wanted a more high-fashion photo-shoot vs. her typical pin-up shots. 
Luckily she was game as well as talented. Here are some of the photos.

If you do something like this. Get ready for some extreme hair and make up. Feather eyelashes are surprisingly heavy. Try to keep your eyes open, and natural looking. GOOD LUCK with that.

Also pick out some dramatic outfits. Remember, this is like a fantasy shoot for you. Be whoever you want to be with your scooter. It's all about you.

If you want to do something like this, first you need a good photographer. Second you need your scooter and some nice theme outfits. Have fun with it, pick out some interesting looks. Make it your own scooter fashion shoot. 

Why did I do this, well, like I said before, I haven't had a real photo taken of me since 1992 and If something happens to you and the news picks a photo off the internet, do you want something like this representing you:

Or this:

Hmmm... that's a tough choice.
