Category Archives: Hasselblad
Let me preface this by saying the Guest Gallery you’re about to click through (hopefully!) was no easy feat. Photographing macro details in a convention center isn’t easy, especially when you’re toting around a Hasselblad 500cm, equipped with an 80mm lens, an extender tube, a Phase One back and lighting the scene with an LED lamp. It doesn’t matter how much you know about cameras, that last sentence probably made you scratch your head a bit.
Why would any photographer go through that much of a hassle to shoot NAHBS? Well, because the photos produced by such a rig came out stellar, that’s why.
Photographer Atom Moore had the most unique camera setup at NAHBS. When I saw him toting it around, I had to see what he was working on and after flipping through his submissions to PiNP, I gotta say that I’m so stoked on how they came out!
Check out some incredible macro shots from the 2014 NAHBS in the Gallery!

Before this blog takes a nose dive into NAHBS, I wanted to share this portrait of Machew that Brenton Salo took on a sunny afternoon in Portland. Loving the tones here.
Kyle had me playing his private photographer while he was in Texas, directing me to shoot this photo of his new Shifter Bikes tee (that I gave him). These came out great, so hassle Dan on his Twitter to make more!

One of my favorite dudes in Austin, BMX legend / Fairdale mastermind, Taj Mihelich was interviewed by the Albion‘s George Marshall for the Rapha Wayfaring blog. How’s that for a link-heavy opener? Make sure you check this one out!
I was riding down a fairly busy road coming back from the post office one day when I saw this hanging on a utility box. It’ wasn’t the first one that I’ve seen and sure wasn’t the last. Easy target, huh?

I haven’t spent this much time in Austin since last summer, and it’s got me out and about every day with the Hasselblad, shooting rider portraits for the Rapha Survey. Here’s a group of a few recents that I thought turned out great.

Last weekend was the Texas Cyclocross State Championships in Fredericksburg, Texas. Unlike the last cross races I’ve shot, it was bright and sunny outside, so I decided to shoot with my new Leica M7 and Hasselblad, rather than the 5D. I’m digging a lot of these, check them out yourself!
Last weekend was the Texas State Cyclocross Championships. I headed out with my Hasselblad and my Leica to shoot some photos. While I’m in the midst of scanning everything, here’s a shot of Chris Lee, post-wreck. His bars got clipped, on a fast downhill section, sending them sideways and Chris, over the bars onto his chest. He sat there, catching his breath and moments later, his tube exploded from the popped bead. Luckily, the dude is ok.
More photos to come.
A few months back, some friends decided to start up a cycling club called Beat the Clock Cycling. It was started by Jon, the owner of Beat the Clock Messengers. The idea was to create a club that would throw local events, with one thing in mind: fun. Group rides, parties, goof-off races and everything in between.
So far, it’s pretty low-key but on New Years Day, a couple dozen people got together for a little impromptu Alley Cross race on the East Side of Austin. I slept in and missed the actual race, but took my Hasselblad out for a quick roll of film at the finish. Check it out in the Gallery!
