The seeds for Dylan VanWeelden’s life-long passion for bikes and cycling were planted growing up in Michigan. His continuing quest to live the cycling life brought him to Portland, Oregon about ten years ago to fulfill the dream of finding work within the bicycle industry, and to be part of a larger cycling community. Going to school for design, with a minor in photography, it didn’t take long for VanWeelden to combine his passion of always looking to combine the beauty of art with cycling. VanWeelden comments on his photography by stating, “My work is more about composition and emotion, rather than the technical aspects. Communicating an idea or emotion feels better to me than taking a photo of a guy coming across the finish line with his arms up.”
