Michael Lichter – Professional Motorcycle Photographer
I was really happy to meet a legend in motorcycle photography among his other accomplishments. I met Mr. Michael Lichter at the rally after noticing an exhibit of his work in the arena at the Rally. His work was exceptional and the images held a certain essence from a riders perspective with a ruggedness and purity in his work. There was an emotion and a story in each capture that sparks a sense of adventure in a bikers heart and a rush of adrenaline.
As I walked deeper into his exhibit; engrossed into the details of the work, I noticed the man himself. He was taking a few collections of his work out to add to the exhibit. I introduced myself and I asked him about himself and his work. Mr. Lichter has been a lead photographer for Easyriders magazine for roughly 20 years and capturing biker and motorcycle moments for over 35 years. We talked for a little while and then I asked to take his photo. It was an honor to meet him and to discover that he was friendly and down to earth made the experience even more memorable.
