he art of capturing something through the lens of a camera is something that is as individual as the person holding the camera is. We all see things differently. We all have a different “lens” that we see the world through, and that is what makes us special.
I’ve spent the better part of the last two decades surrounding myself with people that I thought “must see things like I do,” but the older I get, the more I realize that everyone sees what they want to see. Everyone has a very different take-away from the same situation. This is what makes something like the photography of an artist like Chopskee so unique.
This year, I learned about Chopskee from Jace Hudson (Fast Life Visuals / Fast Life Podcast) and John O’Brien (Hardcore Cycles / TORQUE Television). I asked both of them to share their thoughts on Chopskee’s work, and then I sat down for a quick interview in our new segment focused on influencers we call “Five For Fighting.”
Jace Hudson: “Chop brought a fresh flavor to our Instagram feeds with his moody yet vibrant style! For me, as a fan, I’m most inspired by the composition he finds for his photography! Chop is relatively young in his photography career, and he has already produced images we will be looking back on for many years to come!”
John O’Brien: “Chopskee has a distinct style that is easily distinguished, and that makes the bikes he shoots pop!”
TORQUE: So tell us about yourself
CHOPSKEE: I’m a photographer based out of Buffalo, New York
TORQUE: How long have you been shooting images?
CHOPSKEE: I’ve been traveling and shooting images for 5 years now
TORQUE: What is your favorite subject to shoot?
CHOPSKEE: I love shooting motorcycle action shots
TORQUE: What camera set up do you use?
CHOPSKEE: My go-to set up is a Sony A7III with a Sony 16-35 GM 2.8
TORQUE:How can people find you besides here?
CHOPSKEE: Right now, at the moment, just my Instagram @chopskee. I’ll have a website this winter.
