I am from the south suburbs of Chicago and basically grew up on the back of motorcycles riding everywhere with my Dad. Right after finishing high school I took off for the Navy where I ended up serving 10 years in the submarine force. It wasn't until I was off on my own that I was finally able to get a bike of my own, and the rest they say is history. It was my time stationed in San Diego that I started to get into photography. My journey into photography began on an old Olympus OM-1 35mm film camera which I ended up learning on. I later picked up a little micro 4/3 mirror-less camera to document the chopper community for a blog I had ran for a few years. I now run Nick Faught Photography. Two of my favorite things in the world are motorcycles and photography, and I am grateful to be able to merge the two. Check me out on Instagram and Facebook
When you actually operate an event you rarely get to experience it as an attendee. Luckily I surround myself with talented folks who are always willing to help out the cause. ChopCult contributor Nick Faught was one of many photographers on location and he sent in a few of his favorite photos from the Hippy Killer Hoedown. Enjoy! - Lisa
