Another awesome summer event has come and gone. Crankworx made it's annual stop in Whistler, Canada this August and as like years before, it was a huge success with great weather, an awesome setting, wicked tracks, and record crowds to take in all the incredible action. I was up there for just one day this year and although it was only one day, I managed to be up there on the day the Fox Air DH was on, so I snapped some photos and shot some videos of that, along with getting some content from the guys practicing for the Redbull Joyride Slopestyle event. This whole event gives me a chance to revel in one of my favourite pastimes, mountain biking, and allows me to hone my skills as a photographer shooting the fast moving and high flying action. A win win for me!
All of these were shot with my Pentax K-30, and most were shot with either a Sigma 70-300, a Pentax 18-55DA, or a Pentax 50mm 1.8. In most cases, and just the way I like to shoot, the majority of these were shot wide open, and usually at an ISO of 400...maybe 800, depending on the light available.
Here are a few of my photos from the day, and of course, there are more in the Sports gallery section of my Portfolio.
