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 | 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.

10 Tips for BMX Photography

When I first started with photography, it was about one thing – BMX. An avid BMX rider myself, all I wanted to do was take pictures that would give the average person an idea about the action and lifestyle of a BMX rider. Now, 7 years down the road, I have a bit more experience and insight behind shooting BMX.  I am sharing what I consider to be 10 important tips for photographing BMX and the lifestyle that surrounds this great sport.

I wrote these 10 tips as a base guide for the many people who have written in the past with interest in BMX photography. The first three tips are relatively fundamental and basic to photography in general, the last 6 are a bit more specific to BMX photography. I hope these tips are helpful to many of you and, if your interested in seeing more of my BMX photography and the many other different types of photographs I take please visit my main website.

Fixed Gear Cycling Photos with Devon

I am working this summer to rebuild and expand my cycling portfolio to include all types of cyclist and cycling lifestyle. Colorado is such an active state for cyclists of all types, so I am trying to get out and photograph all the different disciplines of the sport. I’ve been asking local cyclist of all types to volunteer to come out and shoot, and this was the first of what I hope will be a long run of cyclist this summer. The first person I photographed on this project is Devon, a local fixed gear rider. We photographed these images on the north side of downtown Denver in a bit more industrial district, and ended up getting some great light and clouds.
