I did a big project for Sherco Racing for their 2016 bike models. Sherco is a French and Spanish motorcycle manufacturer, specializing in off-road motorbikes. They are best known for their extremely popular trials bikes.
We decided to do the project in Slovenia which is my home country. From the snowy Alps to the seaside of the Adriatic, it's only two hours of driving, so it was the best choice for this project because we needed to do as many different locations in only two days.
The Sherco team, consisting of three different bikes, three riders, two mechanics and a team manager, came to Slovenia directly from France on Friday evening, and the plan was to shoot on Saturday and Sunday. I am always wanting to catch the first light early in the morning, so we needed to go to the location at 3:00 am. My goal was to shoot the sunrise on the top of the mountain. The Sherco team probably wasn't very happy about waking up that early, but I insisted!
It was definitely worth getting up early because we had a stunning sunrise that day!
Practically all of the photos I made were with the help of my VEO 265CB, which is my favorite tripod because of its lightweight and compact usability. All photos were made with my Sony A7R II.
"Sherco's presence in the US has been growing since its inception in 1999. In 10 years, Sherco went from an unknown new trials manufacturer to taking its team to the #1 and #2 spots three years in a row in the 2007, 2008 & 2009 US Pro class." (excerpt from Sherco website)
