Dreamy Dust with James Mcknight by Andy Lloyd

Dreamy Dust
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

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.

This was the very first Dirt Magazine cover Sven Martin landed. It was a huge honour for him because Dirt was the gravity bible at the time and also because it was THE legendary Chris Kovarik.

Is there ever a bad last-light sunset in Utah? This is from a 2009 photoshoot out near Green River. The crew shot some big stunts up high and, as the sun dipped down, James Doerfling surfed the ridge back down to the RV.

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.
