Q&A: Jeff Comber

Q: State your name, geographical location and occupation?
 
Jeff Comber. Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Photographer.

Who’s your favorite Canadian?
 
John Candy.

Do you remember the first time you saw a bike? What was so attractive about them?
 
My Dad had a Honda when I was a child. I remember riding on it with him around our property because I’m pretty sure it wasn’t exactly “Street Legal”.

You’re going to a desert island. You can only bring one: Skateboards or Motorcycles?
 
Skateboard for sure…but either way starvation is inevitable.

Do you own/ride a motorcycle?
 
Nope.

Which of the two do you find more challenging to shoot? Why?
 
Motorcycles are definitely more of a challenge for me to shoot because I’m a total outsider to that whole scene.

What do you think attracts skateboarders to motorcycles, motorcycle culture?
 
Definitely the danger/badass factor attracts skateboarders to bikes. They have that in common.

Give a little background to your photo(s) for the Soul Seekers show…
 
After the previous Soul Seekers show myself and Oskar Szydlowski talked about how cool it would be to shoot a photo of myself skitching behind Osks bike. After the right location was found we hooked it up and made it happen. No slams!
