Ben Watts Shooting “Girls on Bikes” for Treats Magazine [NSFW]

Benjamin Oliver Anthony “Ben” Watts, born 1967 in London, is an English photographer based in New York, whose work has been seen in various international fashion magazines, such as Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and Condé Nast Traveller. He is the brother of actress Naomi Watts. Their father was Peter Watts, a road manager for Pink Floyd. Watts studied at the Sydney College of Arts in Australia, where he started his photographic career as a photographer’s assistant. He first came to New York in 1990, where he started documenting urban youth and was especially fascinated by American Hip Hop culture. He finally moved to New York in 1995. His work was shown in Vibe and Rolling Stone and in advertisements for Nike, Reebok and Gap. Besides his work for fashion magazines, Watts has shot advertising campaigns for famous labels, such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Kodak, Sony Music and Apple Computers.

With someone having that big of a portfolio, you can bet that his photoshoots are going to be a blast. A few months ago, I posted some BTS videos of him shooting “girls on roller skates” on their Issue 1. Recently, Watts did another photoshoot for their Issue 2, featuring “girls on bikes”. Below are some BTS videos of the shoot. Aside from backdrops for car commercial shoot, this is one of the biggest backdrops I’ve seen. He had both hot lights and strobes incorporated, so everything look cleanly lit and massive. Of course, these videos below will have some nudity, so watch at your own discretion.
