Another Cover

I’ve been working at this photographic next chapter for over 8 years now and I measure it by time invested and treasures uncovered. Getting a magazine cover is certainly something to be treasured. And with the latest issue of Pedal Magazine I now have my 4th cover. One was for a trade show magazine, the other three have been for Pedal. And each is unique…

 

#1 – 2012

The first went along with a major article about doping and the state of cycling in Canada. This was a long and involved combination of photographic and written journalism. 2012, midway into this adventure. It was put together through a couple of Skype interviews with Michael and supplemented with assorted photos (some mine and some from others).

#2 – 2015

The next was to celebrate how significant the organizers behind the Mont-Sainte-Anne MTB events are in the grand scheme of mountain bike racing. The cover features Marie-Helene Premont and again there was a significant written piece… this time about how MSA is the last venue from the originals and is the only one to celebrate 25 years (now heading to 27!).

I also did a video for the 25th anniversary… the interviews are from 2014 so it was a year in the making. The video features a few athletes but the story is really told through Patrice & Chantal.

 

 

#3 – 2016

And the latest is a product shot… it’s been years since I’ve done staged photos and I’ll admit I prefer event photography. No written content from me this time, I’ll have to make a point of getting back into writing.

Still.. it was a fun change of pace and I enjoyed the challenge. And hanging out with Tim for an afternoon was a treat… we’ve known each other casually since 2004 so it was nice to have time to get caught up.
