Light Show with James Doerfling by Sven Martin

Light Show
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

Is there ever a bad last-light sunset in Utah? This is from a 2009 photoshoot out near Green River. We shot some big stunts up high and, as the sun dipped down, James Doerfling surfed the ridge back down to the RV. It was a spontaneous and unplanned — I just tracked him on his way down.

Looking at the image on-camera, it looked like I simply captured a sweet silhouette. But on full-screen inspection I saw that the ‘silhouette’ was actually his shadow on the dust kicked up by the rider ahead. If you look closely, you can see the actual rider in the background somewhere. Magical mysterious moments from the desert.

As Boris didn’t have any clients to shoot for, he had the freedom just to play around, so he used the 35mm and hid far away from the jumps. It turned out that he captured this striking silhouette of Kade’s unique style.
From £30
The Welsh Dragon downhill race series really seized the moment, setting the bar pretty high, showing that there was real terrain and big mountains on which to host races in UK.
From £30
When most people had already left the pits, we stayed around and had a beer with the riders. Then we just saw those two chatting in the sunset.

This is Hecklers Rock as Stevie would always want it to be remembered. Course tape down, beers flying, crowd wildly roaring and partying.
From £30
Back in 2003 4X racing was big news. It was fresh and new, and with its elbow-to-elbow dogfights it inspired flashbacks to the early days of BMX racing.
From £30
The end of a long day shooting in Vallnord Bikepark heading back down to town for some beers. Andy Lloyd was ahead, glanced up the mountain as James came into view through the cloud of dust. At that moment he saw the shot.
From £30
Shot during stage two of our epic trek through the Balkans on the Trans Dinarica bike trail. After days of brutal gravel miles, we hit mountain bike gold on the Croatian archipelago.
