Below are a few sports images from a shoot for Magellan GPS that were photographed at locations in the Santa Cruz area. The campaign will be used for advertising and promotion of a new fitness product line by Magellan called Switch. Five Bay Area triathletes were the talent for this lifestyle shoot that mainly included running and cycling at some terrific spots. These athletes really made the difference for the action shots and were patient enough to let us light them and try various options for each scene. Thanks to the amazing Judi Oyama from Maximum Impact for taking care of the location scouting, styling, casting, and excellent production work! My assistant on this gig was Nils Carlson who did a great job tracking subjects with the strobe and for handling the long day like a champ.
Fact or Fiction?
Did two seagulls really steal our sandwiches while Nils and I were working during our lunch break? Yeah it really happened. Those birds are like wolverines with wings and a license to do whatever they want. It was kind of sad, but very funny. “There goes our lunch!”
