Ride the Black Line was a great track bicycle race series at the Velodrome in Encino, CA. I photographed the race series over 6 events and produced this time lapse. Check it out below:
Attitude Is Everything when it comes to the BicycleDotNet Racing Team, an amateur cycling team from Los Angeles. The team races road, track/velodrome, cyclocross, gravel grinders, mountain bikes and "un-sactioned fixie races". What makes this team different from others is that it has no director or board. It has team founders who give it a direction, but mostly the team governs and manages itself collectively. The character of this team is pure fun and has a great passion for all things in cycling. All racers are amateurs; they develop their own training plan, and are highly self-driven and ambitious to perform well; nevertheless, they don't take themselves too seriously. As a result of this environment, team members can grow under less pressure and learn at their own pace, which has so far proven pretty successful.
Apart from their popular social media accounts, this team really needed a website that portraits its brand and character, and informs fans and sponsors, as well. Check out what we've built for them at http://www.hashtagstudfarm.com
Finally, I can now proudly say that my book "Light and Shadows of Chicago - A Metropolis in Black and White Photographs" is now available. Follow this link or click on the image above to go to the online store.
Inspired by the photographs of "Feininger's Chicago, 1941", Light & Shadows of Chicago - A Metropolis in Black & White Photographs" celebrates the timeless beauty of downtown Chicago, The Loop. These contemporary photographs show Chicago's architectural mix of its industrial past and modern present.
I'm following this awesome book with another one very soon: "Light and Shadows of Los Angeles". Currently, I'm out photographing and got some amazing images already. Hopefully, the book will be available at the beginning of 2016.
This year's Amgen Tour of California was truly a thrilling race. We saw a solid sprinters' battle between two of the greatest, Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan, an epic solo break away by that new kid on the block Toms Skujins and an incredible climbing effort on Mt. Baldy by the French featherlight-weight-mountain-goat Julian Alaphilippe. Peter Sagan won the overall tour by literally one inch! See you next year!
