Merla Moto spoke with Lucia Braham, a Sydney-based photographer and motorcycle rider about her creative background, what she loves about photography, and her biker lifestyle.

With a background as an interior and photographic stylist for 10 years, Lucia altered her career to concentrate on photography.
“Photography has been a great transition for me over the last 4 years and [is] now my main focus with work.”
Lucia’s edgy photography style perfectly captured the mood we needed to convey with the photography of our two new bold jackets, the Isla and Fly By Night.
Capturing friends through the lens brings Lucia the most joy. This is evident in the portrait photography on her creative profile
As well as portraits, Lucia finds pleasure in photographing travel adventures and events. “The Boogaloo Invitational is most definitely my favourite place to shoot.”
Lucia began riding bikes over a decade ago after growing tired of being on the back of her brother’s and friend’s bikes.
Lucia has now been riding for over a decade and her machine of choice is a 1993 Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster (pictured below). But her creative talents don’t stop at photography; Lucia has performed some custom mods on her own bike.
“It’s very far from stock and I’ve done most of the work myself.”
Impressed? So are we.
Lucia wears Merla Moto's Fly By Night jacket. As a self-assured and spirited woman building her own professional portfolio, we couldn’t have picked a better jacket for her ourselves. The wearability of the jacket off the bike is particularly important for Lucia, as she mainly rides on long trips, and can’t carry a lot of clothing. “I love the FBN jacket because it looks like a fashion jacket but has all the armour and safety you could want… It’s the perfect two in one.”
