Sebastian Schieck

Schieck is a silent sharpshooter — you probably won’t notice Sebastian too often at events. But, while the man himself keeps a low profile, his images speak for themselves. Sebastian penchant for heading away from the crowd and seeking a different own angle makes his images both unique and memorable.

Schieck works for many of the biggest brands in mountain biking, is a contributor to a number of print and online titles and is one of the main trio of photographers for our downhill and enduro yearbooks, Hurly Burly and The World Stage.

The Final Stage
From £30
In 2018, Cécile Ravanel had won every single race of the Enduro World Series, but before this final stage of the last race she was trailing by 10 seconds. The dominant French woman rose to the challenge, upping the pace and stomping the win in Finale. A perfect eight.
In Between the Tape
From £30
Rachel Atherton caught perfectly, mid-way through her incredible winning streak that spanned 16 consecutive elite race wins, three seasons and two World Championships titles.
Hometown hero
From £30
Greg Minnaar looking tense and focused, contemplating what just happened, surrounded by an ecstatic crowd — his team, friends and family, the one life crew and the media.
Black Snake Rodeo
From £30
Say 2008 Val di Sole and only one person comes to mind. This shot defines Sam Hill in that era: Iron Horse, number one plate, focused eyes, and the Black Snake racecourse.
