Bouldering in the snow

Last week I met up with my good friend Thomas and was shooting him for a small clothing label. We didn't expect to get much climbing done but we found a rock that made for a bit of a scary challenge. Took him longer to get down than it did to get up.

Round Up of a Couple Shots from 2017 Events

I had the chance to shoot a couple of different mountain bike events this year including RedBull Rampage, Enduro World Series / Big Mountain Enduro in Aspen / Snowmass, and also a couple of shoots for bike companies. Here's a couple of the shots from the year. Let me know if you have any tips for some better shots.

Long Exposure Downhill

Hi Guys,

this is a shot of a series I photographed a while ago. It's a long exposure combined with two Profoto B1X to freeze the rider. We shot this image in complete darkness in a german forest.
What do you think?

You can see the whole series over on my website: http://hannespablitschko.de/night-downhill-2017

High contrast lighting issues

Hi Guys,

I would appreciate some input from other experienced photographers. I do quite a lot of event photography. At the weekend I was taking photos of cyclists on an event during the middle of the day in full sun. In these situations I often struggle to get a decent exposure on people's faces. I have been trying to use spot metering,...

Advice for Night cycle photography

The camera I used was a Canon 5Diii with a sigma 35mm 1.4 lens. My settings...

Always trying to be more creative

I've only been shooting sports seriously for about 6 months now, but I'm always trying to do it differently than the last guy, and when possible incorporate more of an artistic feel to the final image. I'm curious to know what everyone thinks about these.

If you want a challenge, try this sometime. Panning is easy; It's a whole new level...

Pocketwizards Help

Hi Guys,

I'm looking to buy a couple of pocket wizards to remote trigger my Canon 5D3. But I'm struggling to find the answer to my question. I would like to use my fuji XT-2 with the PW on it to trigger the Canon. But I cannot find out if this would work anywhere?

Does anyone know if this would work?

Spring Bmx Photos

The spring has been really good to us here, staying nice and dry and usually above freezing so we have been doing lots of riding.
