Every year I like to shoot 2 or 3 videos for the fun of it and have full creative freedom over projects I can really thoroughly be proud of. And these videos usually have the best vibes and get the best feedback. They usually do pretty well online seeing as they're 'organic content' and there is no brand/sponsor/website tied to it.
I’ve wanted to shoot something proper with Alex for a while now after seeing the wild shapes and slides he posts on Instagram. After getting to know him on the EWS circuit the past few seasons, we recently slotted in a few days whilst he was home to hit up his local North Wales spots and see what we could put together, armed with the pan-and-zoomer and fisheye, along with some disposable Amazon specials. A passion project on both sides.
The disposable cameras were probably the most fun part of this whole video. 39 shots per day, one small flash and patience were the name of the game. Waiting for, and predicting, the best shape of the rider is quite a skill and one I haven't mastered, but I still got some good shots here and there.
