I’ve been working with Bill Bishop on a series of images since early July. This weekend we were supposed to work on the swim images. Recently we did bike and some track running shots with various athletes that he coaches. I don’t get to work with swimmers a lot, but I had some ideas in my head.
Some of the images from the early morning shoot…
I was in St.Paul Minnesota over the weekend for an assignment. Going to Red Bull Crashed Ice, I had no idea what I was getting into. I watched the event countless times before, I knew what it was. I studied the course and athletes, looked at all the photos available from the past. Goal was to capture an action shot of the event without any secondary sponsor logos visible at the same time showing that it is a Red Bull event. For that the best location would be the start chute, where there was a huge Red Bull arch and the start of the event was really cool with St.Paul Cathedral in the background.
Today I had a commercial aerial shoot for a construction firm which turned into a long waiting game. Snow delayed the things a little bit (6 hours to be exact!) but we were able to catch a break and take off just before sunset. Once I shot the images, I asked pilot if we have time to circle around the loop. To add more fun to the shoot, it was 4 degrees and we removed the doors.
