Chicago Athlete Magazine July issue.
It’s been a little cold in Chicago recently.
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.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. In other words my 2015 US Cyclocross Nationals images. Coming to Austin my goal was different, work on the location, get familiar with the course on Saturday and be ready for Sunday. I planned everything; I will be flying back to Chicago Monday morning and still make my afternoon meeting with McHugh for the upcoming shoot. Things don’t go as planned always. Race cancelled, then postponed to Monday afternoon due to logistics related issues. Unfortunately I will be back to Chicago in the morning when the re-scheduled races start. So I sit down and started to review my images from Saturday.
Here some images from Saturday after editing.
