quick snap: nikki o

This is Nikki Ormerod in what was our office today (yes, I love what I do).

After the shoot was done, the location was a little too nice to pass up, so I took some quick shots of her in the setting sun.

tom nesbitt and CX

Meet Tom Nesbitt.  For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting Tom in real life, he's the incredibly talented producer for Chris Gordaneer.  He also has a vast knowledge of bikes, and has helped me out on countless occasions as I needed to upgrade or fix my own ride.

He invited me out to one of his cyclocross races, and so I decided to shoot some apres race portraits.  I don't even know how he could stand, seeing as the course was over an hour long and involved going up and down a ski hill, jumping over obstacles and sprinting past other cyclists...

I got there mid race, so I snapped some shots of Mr. Nesbitt in action.

...there were injuries...

...and a fellow morning glory teammate Kevin Higgins going ridiculously fast.

I've also included some extra snaps for some context about how epic this sport is.

quick snap: peter

I had some free time yesterday, so I decided to bike around with Peter Olson.  He's a fellow assistant/photographer, and he allowed me to quickly photograph him with my 4x5.

I also rode around with a small film cam loaded with some colour neg.  It was a beautiful day with some great light.  

and some "bts" now...

I mounted the small 35mm to my bike for fun.  

I'm trying to decide if this was quick thinking, or lazy thinking.  Here's a shot by Peter of me using my bike, a super clamp, and a tripod head as a tripod for the 4x5.
