I had been immersed in a swimwear shoot and building more imagery was the last thing on my list of things to do. But Hans call came on the heels of a 16 hour day on the computer and the passage of a cold front which left a rather dramatic sky.
So I made my way out to Chez Rathje, and their private custom BMX track which somehow, had not only survived the torrential rains here on the coast, but now had a couple new ramps as well. With Spring in full bloom we managed a quick shoot with the Canon5D M2 on a boom with the strobe set to high speed synch and had a little fun.
Hans was wearing a Liquid Militia shirt. Always thinking. Liquid Militia is an apparel company which is action sport centric. As the other guys were hurriedly packing up the car for a road trip Hans got to do laps for the camera. No crashes in spite of oxygen debt.
Life is what occurs in the short strokes as we are busy making other plans. I love spontaneity and talented people.
Here is a Red Bull production of the amazing Danny MacAskill in, “The way back home.”
