Jim Gianatsis
A Lifetime of Motorcycle and Glamour Photography
MySpace.com/JimGianatsis

Jim was born in 1949 at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington DC, the son of US Air Force Colonel James A. Gianatsis, a decorated World War II B26 bomber pilot. Jim's childhood was spent living around the world and across America on military bases: from Germany Hawaii and Phillipines, to Virgina, Illinois and Mississippi.

Jim's passion for wheeled motorsports developed early from just 6 years old with building model cars and trains, to stripping down and modifying his bicycles for "racing" when he was just 8 years old. By age 12 Jim had his first camera and was taking candid shots of pets and friends. In 1962 when his family was stationed in Hawai, Jim's career in photographing beautiful girls began at age 12 as he'd approach vacationing college girls in bikini's on Waikiki Beach and he'd asked them if he could take their pictures with his twin reflex camera.

Please note that Jim Gianatsis is a professional photographer, and his archival Motocross and Stock Calendar and Model photography is valuable. Requests for custom photo prints and mural prints are expensive and very time consuming to discuss, research and then produce a custom lab order, package and ship it to you safely. You are not only paying for the cost of the custom photo prints, but our time to work with you and a per image artist's fee to cover Jim's lifetime of work and dedication.

Please note, many vintage motocross bike collectors contact us for pictures, static and action with the factory riders, of their origional bikes from the 1970s, but we can not profitably provide the photo(s) wanted from our negative archives at the inexpensive prices you'ld like to pay. A typical custom order takes 3-4 hours to process and handle at a professional rate of $125/hr, plus the cost of the custom prints and shipping.
