STUDIO CITY, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — It’s not even Thanksgiving, but motocross fans and followers will be glad to hear that veteran “motojournalist” Charlie Morey has just made available his highly-anticipated 2006 Legends of American Motocross Calendar is now available at the print-on-demand website, Lulu.com.
These classic photographs were captured by Morey, the founding editor at Dirt Rider Magazine, during the formative years of professional motocross in the United States. Morey also worked as a photographer and in editorial positions for Cycle News Newspaper (1974-1981).
“Looking back on it now, motojournalism provided me with the opportunity to travel the world, to become acquainted with the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, and to express my visual creativity through a thrilling, dynamic medium.”
Fourteen of the Morey’s classic black-and-white pictures are in the 26-page 8-1/2″ x 11″ calendar. On two of the months, vertical format is used with two side-by-side images per page.
Hall Of Fame Images Included
One of Charlie’s legendary images, The Jammer, which depicts “Jammin’ Jimmy” Weinert slamming into “Tony D” DiStefano at the 1974 Highland Hills AMA 500cc National Championship event, was honored in 2004 by Racer X Illustrated Magazine.
Racer X inducted the image into the Racer X Hall of Fame and presented the picture on its February 2004 cover and in posters. Today, the image graces the calendar’s cover and month of January.
These days, Morey’s photography is riding high on a different track: He creates fine art photography, illuminating a wide variety of subjects/fields, and he is a resident artist at the Infusion Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. His prints are on sale at his website (www.digitalphotography.tv).
