I went out to US 129 this past weekend to photograph cyclist, Jon Crowson. What an amazing athlete! I love working with athletes, just seeing there amazing talent and athleticism never ceases to amaze me. I wanted to get some shots of Jon riding. My assistant for the day ,Gil Downey, and I rode in the back of my truck while my buddy Rick drove. We made a couple passes through the straights and went inside the "Dragon". I then took some simple single light shots of him standing in the road (I dont know why I love to put people in the road?).
The photo of him standing in the middle of the road turned out to be my favorite.w why I love to put people in the road?) Even though it wasn't my first choice the shot of him standing in the road turned out to be my favorite of the day.
More photos and behind the scenes information after the jump.....
