You're quite right. He rode in 123. I checked my program. . . And i remember now we spoke to him as he was an Aussie like Chad and so was of interest to Aussie journos. I probably have quite a few shots of him in my file - but my mission was to shoot Chad wherever possible so he was my main focus.
I actually got paid to go to the U.S. (from Australia) and photograph him for a week - and then got shots published in mags over here. . . I also took lots of shots of Ricky Carmichael and a lot of the others. It was a great experience.
really arent u got any of thems contact detail, or special pics, believe me im really crazy about motocross, if i say u how much crazy, i sold everything i had and bought a damen old motocrossbike, and now no money to repair it
Classic hero shot.
The positioning on the crest of the jump works well, still shows enough of the ground to make the assumed connection obvious, and yet no clutter and bustle behind the rider to confuse the focus of the shot.
Great work on the Motocross lot - I am sure that the client appreciated your work.
Thanks a lot, Luke. . . This was the hero shot! . . . I think it's the position you see Steve McQueen shot in during The Great Escape just before he tries to jump the stalag fence on his bike. . . I'm sure Mel as Mad Max is shot this way a few times.
