Action Sports

I believe when it comes to shooting action sports, the closer to the action the better. While this might put me in a bit of danger, it forces me to develop a strong relationship with the athletes. My background in competitive snowboarding and mountain biking gives me an in-depth understanding of action sports and helps me connect with athletes. Establishing this relationship with athletes helps me break down the pressure associated with action sports photo shoots, balancing the restraints of the athletes and required photographs. This creates a team dynamic and builds trust, adding up to better photos. Trust enables me to place myself directly in the action to get the shot, removing layers between the viewer and the sports. Combining my experience with extreme sports and my knowledge as a photographer I capture the intensity of an action-filled moment.
