Cleveland Metroparks Centennial - Bradley Woods Reservation

The year 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the Cleveland Metroparks. With that in mind, I am going to be attempting to visit as many of the reservations which make up the Emerald Necklace.

The first on the list of reservations I visited was Bradley Woods. This is the first time I have gone out to photograph in the year 2017. The weather outside did not make for great photographs so I decided to focus on detail shots and textures on the ground floor of the forest. 

I hiked two trails within the reservation, Bunn's Lake Loop within the Bunn's Lake Wildlife Area as well as the Pin Oak Loop.

We have been published!

It is with great pleasure I am proud to say that RDBloomfield Photography LLC - Piston Powered Division has been published for the first time. Dani Pajak from Disowned Customs, and Brian Schaffran, owner of Skidmark Garage were interviewed by an online magazine, bikerMetric. The website is based around the lifestyle of building and modifying metric based motorcycles. Both men were featured in the Custom Motorcycle Interviews section of the website. The pictures which I took are scattered in amongst the articles along with the couple pictures which Brian's girlfriend Molly Vaughan took.

Thanks again goes out to Tana Kidwell and Bethany Capasso for coming out and posing with Dani and the bikes for the shoot. It was a great time, I look forward to what the future brings for Disowned Customs and Skidmark Garage.

Disowned Customs Photo Shoot July 2015

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph an up and coming motorcycle builder in Cleveland, Ohio.  His name, Dani (DB) Pajak. Dani is the owner of Disowned Customs. He recently joined forces with Brian Schaffran, owner of Skidmark Garage. After building motorcycles for the past few years out of his garage, Disowned Customs was voted as the "Best Motorcycle Shop" on the Cleveland Hot List this past January.

I would like to personally thank Bethany Capasso and Tana Kidwell for coming out and posing with "El Chapo" and the "Shazukee". Bethany and Tana were great to work with, this made for a relaxed, fun, no-pressure shooting environment. Toward the end of the shoot Dani broke out his Lincoln Electric welding coat and helmet. This lead to some sexy shots representing the sponsorship which Lincoln provides to the Disowned crew.
