Photographed the RBC GranFondo bike race that goes from Vancouver to Whistler here in BC, Canada. Brendan and I picked a spot along the scenic sea-to-sky highway at around 6am, set up a single light with a reflector and just waited for the action to reach us. I had decided long before when we were scouting our spot that I would focus more on portraits of the cyclists instead of trying to capture wide shots of the whole pack.
Here’s a quick video of me at work.
And here are a few of the images.
The final selects for the project can be seen in the “Projects” section of my site here
Would love to here which shots you guys prefer – the tighter portraits or the wider shots of the riders. If you have an opinion I’d love to here it in the comments.
