About the MotoInsider

Editorial – Images by Alfonse Palaima

As an experienced motorcyclist, traveler and journalist with a bachelors degree in Photography, I meld my two passions into one as a photographer and journalist in the motorcycle industry. Shooting for both print and web publications, manufacturers and publications directly, I’m ready and willing to shoot it all. Ride with me as I ride the world one country at a time! Given my father’s name of Alfonse and growing up as a child of the 70s, I’ve become known as Fonzie inside the circle.

This website is a collection of my latest projects, photoshoots and commentaries in the old brag book style. Each post includes links to photos in use online or in publications on the newsstand, rebroadcast stories from editorial days at Motorcycle.com and photo galleries connected to my MotoPhotography.com portfolio website.

Considered ‘one of the best in the industry’ by a leading motorcycle manufacturer’s head of PR, I’m here to help you and your products look great. Check my full LinkedIn profile for more recommendations. Working in the motorcycle industry since 2003, I began as a programmer-slash-photographer for Motorcycle.com, eventually climbing the ranks to become Executive Editor for the same magazine. In 2010, stepped away from the shackles of one publication to work for many. Now shooting for whole industry – press introductions to catalogs –  I’ve amassed a client list that includes Bell, Buell, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Kymco, Yamaha and Victory as well as bylines in nearly every print and online motorcycle (and ATV) publication out there. Look for the name and you’ll find it. Thanks for your time!
