I met Jeremy Hutch on a ride out at Gorman, CA where we instantly connected over our love for bikes and the outdoors.
Originally from Durban, South Africa, Hutchbilt opened its workshop doors in Inglewood, California focusing on Industrial Design and High-End Dual Sport Adventure bikes and products.
The first time I got to lay my eyes on one of his builds, specifically the Husqvarna 501 featured in this film, I was excited to see it in action. Simply one of the most desirable builds one could possibly get their hands on.
His story and passion for the craft didn’t let me go and I knew I had to film a story about him.
Fortunately META, now VAHNA (link www.vahna.com) was as interested in this project as I was so we decided to partner up and make this an exclusive editorial for the magazine.
We shot both on location at his workshop and at one of the most scenic Public Lands in California, Alabama Hills.
Playground for many Hollywood movies, we camped overnight and shot first light.
The landscape is breathtaking and unlike anything I've seen before and will have me come back to visit many more times.
