BMX photoshoot with strobes

Its always fun to shoot somewhere out of the ordinary. I do shoot a bit of BMX and it’s normally at the local track. With so many riders around I don’t usually bring the strobes out….

This shoot was different as we went to a private track and with only two riders to shoot I was able to bring out the big lights.

Tech details:
Canon 7D
Lens: Tokina 12-24 and Sigma 70-200
Lights: Boling 600 watt fired via PocketWizards

Inspired by Absolute Zero Productions, Liam Mullany and David Peacock

Whenever I watch a video two times in a row I think it’s time to share with others and help promote whoever created the video. I don’t have much info on Absolute Zero productions other than their names…Liam Mullany and David Peacock.
While the intro might not make a ton of sense to the non mountain bike crowd, the balance of the video should stand out no matter who you are.

Of course I think you should watch it large on Vimeo if you can…

Crankworx Deep Summer Photo Challenge-Team Justa

The Crankworx Deep Summer Photo Challenge is best described on it’s website “Now in its fourth year, the Deep Summer Photo Challenge, turns six different lenses on the some of the best mountain bike action and terrain in the world. The Deep Summer Photo Challenge does not ask a career-long body of work from the contenders. It demands a slice of big-scale action captured in a small segment of time. With three days to shoot anywhere in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park or Valley, the constraint of time is as inspiring as it is unforgiving.”

It’s an event I’ve followed the past few years and something that I’ve always wanted to be a part of…there have always been a couple of obstacles in my way….I haven’t been invited and it takes place in Canada.

That changed this year when photographer Justa Jeskova asked me to be a part of her team. No I didn’t get to head to Whistler, but I was able to edit images for Justa after she put in the long days of shooting. I was thrilled to play a very small role in a very big effort and stoked for Justa who’s slide show got third place for 2012. She was in with some very big names in action sports photography.

The final product is below. Watch on Vimeo in HD if you can…

Mountain bike shoot-Beacon Hill-Washington State

Back in February I had the chance to shoot Skye Schillhammer when he visited SoCal for a few days…if you missed those photos you can view them here. When planning a trip to Idaho this summer I found out that I’d be up in Skye’s neck of the woods as he lives in nearby Washington. We were able to find a day to shoot and Skye invited a couple of friends…the results are below. Good times shooting and watching some amazing riding!
