The end of a long day shooting for Dirt Magazine in Vallnord Bikepark, heading back down to the town of La Massana for some beers. For once, I was leading friend and colleague James McKnight on (what is now) a fun blue run back to the valley floor.
As I flew out into a clearing about halfway down, I looked back to see the evening sunlight streaming through the trees and my recently kicked up dust. James came into view through the cloud of dust and at that moment I saw the shot. Grabbing my camera from my bag, I sent him back up, but with the lack of a lead rider to create the dust I improvised, lobbing handfuls of dust up into the trees to create the same effect.

Technical information: Our display prints are printed on Epson Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper using archival inks. We use Epson UltraChrome water based HDR ink-jet technology to ensure fantastic final print.
Framing options: You can take your print to your local framing store, and they will be able to help you with getting your print framed.
For a cheaper DIY option Ikea have plenty of frame options. We would recommend buying the RIBBA frame.
Books: Our books are stored and posted from the UK.
Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
