    Gold in Editorial/sports, 1st place winner in Editorial

This is a study of the possibilities of shooting high performance action sports with studio lights. I was lucky enough to work with some of the best athletes in the world what allowed me to try all my ideas in a variety of sports like bmx, motocross, surfing and skimboarding. It's a challenge to find the good conditions for these type of shots. It's not always that the light or the waves are ideal around sunset/sunrise. And it's also a challenge for the rider to perform in pretty close to darkness. So it's always rewarding when it all works out!
