Dust and flashes
DESCRIPTIONShooting motocross is one of my favorite things to do. The thrill of watching these guys go too many feet above the ground is quite insane. Shooting motocross with studio flashes brings a lot of challenges. All the jumps are huge so it's quite tricky to light up the whole set up so it's always a good feeling when I get something the rider and I are stoked on.
AUTHORMy interest in photography began during a time I was also really into mountain biking. So I was mainly shooting the landscape of the places I got to go on my bike. Since biking is a sport that teaches you the importance of waking up early, I’ve also learnt to appreciate the beauty of that early morning light.
Since I’ve always been into sports it was a natural step to start shooting my friends doing sports. I quickly noticed that shooting during “the golden hour” led to shots I liked more. But then I started shooting sports like skateboarding and it’s very hard to talk skateboarders into walking up at 5am to get that good light. That was when I started studying artificial light.
Nowadays I travel with a pretty big amount of gear and place flashes where I probably shouldn’t be placing to get the shots you see here.
