Fox Racing Photoshoot

I just did a photoshoot with Kirt Voreis for Fox Racing. I can't really show you any shots from the shoot but here is a shot of Kirt's mechanic Travis railing the 50 through a corner as I test the lights.

2009 Sea Otter Downhill

So I haven't posted in a while, been pretty crazy with being a dad. I've been working on refining the high speed "hypersync" with my pocket wizard multimax's, and it's been working fairly well. I can't wait for them to come out with the Nikon version of the Flex TT5 though, firing with the camera in one hand and a pocket wizard in the other is a little tiring. I find a good solution at the Sea Otter downhill though. I started shooting normally at 1/250th sync and I was really not happy with the amount of blur I was getting so I switched to the high speed and started shooting at 1/1000th. Then I realized that every shot was pretty much going to be the same so I put my camera on a tripod and just stood there pocket wizard in hand. I realized that if I had planned ahead I could of brought a lawnchair and and icy glass of lemonade. You can see the rest of the shots here
