Quick Pic 5 – Joe Schuster at Mt. Bachelor – Bend, Oregon


Joe Schuster jumping a 90 foot step over jump at Mt. Bachelor, Oregon

A few weeks before this shot was taken, I was at the exact same spot, shooting on a larger version of this jump with Poor Boyz Productions at Mt. Bachelor in Bend, Oregon.  We waited around for about a week for the weather to improve and it just never seemed to get the way we wanted so I bailed out for a few days down to Mammoth Mountain, CA to shoot with Level 1 Productions.  A few days later I came back up to Mt. Bachelor to shoot with Rage Films for another park shoot and I got the weather I was hoping for and the shoot went off.  It was one of those shoots where I got photos every day that ended up running in a mag somewhere.  Needless to say it was a good couple of days with a really fun crew of young up and coming kids.

After shooting on this jump in the morning we took a big break and came back just around 6pm to get going on this again to shoot around sunset.  Joe Schuster was one of the only ones that stuck it out about an hour after the last light was on the jump to wait and ski for the sunset photos.   I shot this scene with a pretty standard kit of lighting for me on a jump with an Elinchrom Ranger RX AS Speed with an A-Head, Alien Bees 800, Alien Bees 1600 along with my DIY battery packs with Pocket Wizard Plus 2 transcivers and a Nikon D3 with a Tamron 28-75 f2.8 LD XR Di SP lens.

Quick Pic 4 – Tom Wallisch at Windell’s Camp

I just rolled into Mt. Hood, OR to shoot the Sammy Carlson Invitational. It’s been a few years since I was last here at Mt. Hood, the last time being when I took this photo of Tom Wallisch with Level 1 Productions while shooting for the movie “Turbo”. This shot was taken with a Nikon D70s, Nikon 18-200 f3.5-5.6, Pocket Wizard Plus 2 Transcievers, and Elinchrom Ranger RX AS Speed pack with an A-head at 1/1000 sec, f5.6, at 60mm.

For those of you wondering how I was able to sync my strobes at 1/1000 of a second, the Nikon D70s’s CCD sensor and electronic shutter allow for this to work at up to 1/1250 of a second using Pocket Wizard Plus, Plus 2, and Multimax transcievers without any adjustments in settings.

Quick Pic 3 – Anna Segal at El Colorado Resort, Chile

In an effort to keep myself posting more often I’ve started a category of posts on my blog called Quick Pics.  I don’t always have time to make a blog post when I’m in the middle of travelling or a really busy cycle of work so I’ve added this section.  Just a photo, maybe with a little bit about the photo if I have time.  Judging by the traffic response so far, it seems like it’s what everyone wants to see.  These photos are going to be completely random personal work, or maybe just a photo I’ve taken in the past that has been published, or maybe one that didn’t get published but I just liked it a lot.

This photo is of Anna Segal about two years ago during a trip we went on to Chile.  This shot in particular was at a sunset session in the terrain park in El Colorado, Chile.  There are amazing sunsets almost every day out there with all the pollution in the valley of Santiago.  Shot at 1/125 sec, f5.6, ISO 100 on a Canon EOS-1D MKII, Canon 70-200 2.8 L IS lens with Alien Bees 800, Alien Bees 400,  3 Nikon SB-80DX speedlights, Pocket Wizard Plus 2 transcivers.

Nothing else, just this photo.  Shot it a few weeks ago out in the garages at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, UT because it just looked cool.
