I’d never call myself a sports photographer. I shot my fair share of sportscar and rally racing images but that was many many years ago. But sports photography is a completely different world which I hardly know anything about.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to get out of my comfort zone and shoot a cycling classic when the chance presents itself. I was shooting a corporate event at the side of a piece cobblestone road know as the “Pavé de la Roseé”. I loved getting out there in the dust and try to get some decent shots. It was pretty hard because these cyclist flash by immensely fast and even with a camera which has a great autofocusing system I had a hard time getting the cyclist tacksharp in focus.
It might not be the best work I’ve ever shot but I had good fun doing it.
These are just my 3 favorite shots but you can see the entire gallery on the FHP facebook page (likes are always welcome ;-))
