Jeff Fehr in Calgary

I just finished shooting a Red Bull X-Fighters preview event in downtown Calgary with Canadian FMX rider Jeff Fehr. It was a bright day and I only brought a bunch of SB800's so I used what is quickly becoming my current go to technique for action in daylight and shot at 1/1000th f7.1 to bring down the sky and still keep some light on Jeff and the ground. For those of you new to my blog you can read about me technique here. Check out the rest of the photos on Flickr by clicking on the image or going here.

Fluidride Pro GRT

Last weekend I was at the Fluidride Cup #2 and Pro GRT race #1 in Port Angeles Washington. I hung out with Kevin and Gabe from Evil Bikes and took a bunch of photos of practice and qualifying. Unfortunately I had to leave before the final to catch a ferry to Victoria so no photos of that. Next on my schedule is an FMX Shoot in Calgary next week as a prequel to the Red Bull X-Fighters event at the end of the month. Oh, and I can't forget about tomorrow's SRAM sponsored Fresh Air Jam at Jordy Lunn's mom's house in Victoria. I checked out the course yesterday and the event should be awesome!
