Fred, Jon, and Sébastien are the photographers behind True Biker Spirit. The passion pours through their photos.
Who we are:
3 no brainer passionate motorcycle riders, we love the machines, the open roads, the freedom.
Between the 3 of us we own enough bikes to ride a different one every day (almost kidding)
Jon is a professional interior designer and designer, he also teaches and is behind art direction and design for all our visual stories.
Seb is moving from computer programming to photography, we initially started TBS together a bit more than three years ago.
As for me, Fred, I have been a professional freelance photographer since 1993.
What we do:
Apart from jobs paying for our steaks, we concentrate and put all our efforts into TBS.
We started this adventure as a Belgian french speaking blog about the universe of motorcycling.
Back then we felt there was nothing interesting available in our language and where highly dissapointed by the photography, missing all the “glamour, sex and rock n’ roll” side of it.
It became rapidly obvious that we were no big writers and cared more about the visuals.
That is how we decided to skip the blog thing and focus on film and photography.
We also aimed at a more international audience, Belgium and France were our two major visitors and now our audience counts 57 countries.
Jon joined the team and brought new ideas and worked on our “portfolio magazine” -> Stay True
In a word, we shoot and film bikes and bikers :)
Cagiva Elefant 900 ie
Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO
2 Ducati Monster 600 carbs
Yamaha XS 360 “street machine” in the making
What we like:
We like the freedom that biking gives us
We love the machines, but especially the unique ones, the ones that riders put
their heart and guts into
We love the free spirit, “Stay True” stand as our everyday motto, because we think it should be THE life philosophy, never cheat.
Whatever people do, whatever they ride, as long as it’s true.
We always try to seek new path and picture this with a different point of view, also trying to put the “unknown” riders and their machines on the front scene.
And of course we are passionate about image, film, culture, travel, the world.
What the future holds for us:
Quit our other jobs, travel the world, shoot bikes and never look back ! ;)
