Primal Wear // 2013-14 Winter Lookbook

As many of you probably know already, in addition to my photography work, I am also finishing a BFA in Communication Design, and as part of my studies I am doing a graphic design internship with a cycling apparel company called Primal Wear. They specialize in high-end cycling apparel and custom jerseys and kits. One of the fun things is that in addition to doing my graphic design work, I also have the opportunity to shoot some fun projects. Below are some select pages which feature my photography work both product and riding. Book design was by Megan Levaque , Art Direction – Tim Baker, and all work ©Primal Wear.

Bicycling Magazine | High School MTB

This month’s issue of Bicycling Magazine (Nov. 12) features a great story written by Tracy Ross, and that I photographed last year on High School mountain bike racing here in Colorado. The story focuses on a prominent female rider, Dominique Fenichell, of Boulder High School, and the new high school mountain bike racing league, NICA. I was also personally featured in the contributors section as well. It was really great to see how much the sport has expanded. I personally rode in a  MTB class at high school in Albuquerque, and I thought it was really great to see  how organized racing has become here in CO. Below are the images from the magazine, as well as a few images that weren’t published.

Bicycling Road Trip

I got back from a week long trip shooting for Bicycling magazine a couple weeks ago, and although I can’t share any of the actual images from the story yet here are a few iphone shots from the trip. I am looking forward to sharing the final images after the story is published.

Denver Cruisers

Last week I decided to go photograph the weekly Denver Cruisers ride. I’ve done the ride several times, but it was always a hassle to bring all my camera equipment, so I never did until last week. So here are a few pictures of the awesome mayhem that is Denver Cruisers.

Bicycling Magazine | Pikes Peak | June 2012

Last year I photographed an assignment for Bicycling Magazine which was just published in this months issue (June 2012). The story was on the Assault on Pikes Peak ride in Colorado Springs in August of 2011. I photographed their writer, Evelyn Spence, on her ascent to the top of the peak, a grueling 7,710 ft. of vertical elevation gain in 24.5 miles. Evelyn was a trooper and climbed the whole thing while I got to ride up in style in the media car documenting her trip to the top. I”ll be honest I wanted to ride that day too, but only down the mountain!

Bicycling Mag. & Lighting

So, among the many things I’ve been busy with this past few months, is a few assignments for Bicycling magazine. I’ve had a lot of fun with these past few jobs, and although I can’t yet share the images from the shoots (the images will be posted after they’ve been published this coming spring), I thought I would share a quick little bit about what I’ve been using to light some of the shots. These past few assignments I have been covering cycling events, instead of doing a portrait or more posed type shot. So my goal has been to travel light, but yet still have enough lighting equipment with me to compete with the strong day light. I used natural light for the majority of the shots, but I do like to have lighting equipment with me when I need it, to really make some of the images pop.

I used an Alien Bee 1600 strobe powered by the Vagabond Mini, and triggered with Pocket Wizards. The new Vagabond Mini, is a life saver when it comes to its weight and versatility, especially compared to its predecessor. I pack all of this into a Domke J-2 bag, which fits the strobe, battery, and cords perfectly. Also, instead of using a light stand for the strobe, I just attach it to a tripod because it can be adjusted much better for rough and uneven terrain. While carrying all this around with my two cameras and lenses may not be considered traveling “light” by some, it does give me a lot of flash power, mobility, and options compared to just carrying around a small speed light.

Urban Cycling Photos with Kevin

I did some photographs of another local cyclist here in Denver in early August. I had envisioned this shot for a while and wanted to find a cyclist to shoot these with underneath I-70 here in Denver. Kevin and his fiance, who just so happened to be looking for a wedding photographer at the time found me, and Kevin volunteered to come out and ride for the photos. We made some great images, and it was definitely a bit of a learning experience shooting out of the back of my car w/ flashes for the first time. Big thanks again to Justin for his help again, totally couldn’t have done this without him.
