A few weeks ago I had the privilege of shooting the brand new Niner Bikes MCR 9 RDO Full Suspension gravel bike. The first painted sample frames had just come in and Niner wanted some imagery to accompany the bikes launch at Sea Otter. Engineer Peter Field and I headed out early to catch first light on some of my favorite roads. I’ve shot these roads before, but every time I go back I see new things, it’s all part of the process I guess. Shooting with my Sony A9 and assisted by an Elinchrom Quadra for fill light we made quick work of the morning. Here are a few shots from that.
We finished up the morning with a coffee and headed to Niner to pick up Reese Ruland, our assistant for part two. As we arrived at the trailhead to shoot Peter riding some sweet rooty singletrack the sky hazed over giving us perfect bright even light. No flash needed!
