I had the opportunity to photograph Mike Flannigan over at Alternative Needs Transportation (ANT). ANT bicycles is a small bicycle fabrication shop in Holliston that builds bikes for transportation that have a great combination of function and style.
We were looking for a photograph that captured the “hand-crafted” part of Mike’s work since all of his bikes are made by hand. The picture below was taken while Mike was welding up a new cargo bike. The workshop has some great frosted windows that filter the daylight, but much of the light had already faded from the day. To boost the natural light we used a shoot-through umbrella with a speedlight attached and it did nice job of draping the light on Mike’s face. We had a lot of fun and got some wonderful pictures!
If you’re ever looking for a great bicycle for commuting or just riding around town, be sure to check out ANT.
