Team Oregon – 2011 Official Photos

Just being in Portland, you can’t help but get excited about cycling. We’re pretty famous for it now. It’s no secret I’m a fan of cycling and I get kick out of shooting races. It’s fun to capture action and the lifestyle surrounding the sport. Also, cyclist are really into gear and, as a photographer, I can totally relate.

When Team Oregon approached me to be there official photographer this year, I was flattered and immediately said yes. These folks are a great bunch and they are one of the biggest teams in the state. As part of my sponsorship, I did this first shoot of their Category 1 and 2 Riders. These guys are the Best of the Best. In addtion to portraits of the riders, I photographed them doing a team ride shooting from inside the trunk of hatchback on Sauvie Island. Cool stuff indeed. Here are some of my favorites:

2010 Cyclo-Cross Nationals – Bend, OR

It’s snowing in Portland today and that reminded me of the time I went to Bend in December to see the 2010 USA Cyclo-Cross Nationals. Cold, wet, mud, all combined with fierce competition to make this a truly exciting event to watch and shoot. I shot it for fun, but I like how these shots came out.  I use to BMX when I was a kid and then mountain bike in my early 20s. I never did anything competitive, but I could see myself totally getting into Cyclo-Cross. Maybe I’ll try out some of amateur races this next fall. Maybe…

Speaking of cycling and racing, I’m sponsoring the Team Oregon this year with donations of photography and discounts on prints/downloads. I’ll be shooting some documentary work of the Elite team as well as shooting some of the races. Stay tuned for more cycling action!

Finish Line (Redo) | OBRA at PIR

Doh! This was suppose to post today, not yesterday. Mea culpa. Anyway, I love the very warm tones from the last shots of the day. Nothing better than a late summer sun. Sad to see it go.

And so concludes my little photo series of OBRA bike racing at PIR. If you’d like to see all the shots I took, click here to go to the LB Archive gallery.
