Wigs don’t wear wigs…
Andy Wigan works in the same offices where my dingy little studio is situated. He is Managing Editor of what is to become Australia’s premier motocross magazine, Transmoto. We have been working together a little lately as my new film company was involved in a project that Transmoto had collaborated on with JDR Motorsports. The project spanned a few different mediums and has just recently run it’s course with the latest instalment of the magazine.
I met Andy whilst he was working at Emap or Mason Stewart Publishing, one of the two, some 18 years ago. I had always wanted to get involved in shooting more bike action as it seemed like a very dynamic sport with endless lighting situations and set ups. I never really got around to any of it until recently and it’s been great. Working with Andy has been great, he’s always enthusiastic to get things happening, and he even ran one of my shots in the mag from a first attempt a few months back.
He spends a fair bit of time dedicated to making Transmoto what it is and it shows in the quality that he and his team (his dog included) are releasing every month. Hopefully I get more opportunities in the future to contribute to what he has created. Time will tell.
