You can plan, get ideas, and come in to the shoot ready, but often everything changes on the day of the actual event. Being able to adapt and think quickly are the keys to shooting a fast moving sporting event. In this behind the scenes video, several photographers who worked the Crankworx MTB event share their thoughts about shooting successfully. Sven Martin starts things off with his backstory on how he came to do this kind of work.
Considered by many in his field to be one of the best mountain biking photographers in the world, Sven Martin carries a big kit and understands the subject matter that he shoots, as seen in a sampling of his images below.
