Championnats québécois de cyclocross – St-Augustin

Les Championnats québécois de cyclocross – St-Augustin was one of those races where you really want to avoid the use of the word “Epic” because holy am I fed up with that word. But really, it was. It really was. (See? I managed to use it without actually using it) 😉 Two huge bonfires to […]

Série de cyclocross Ekoï #10 – Superprestige – Laval

The final Ekoï Cyclocross race of 2013 did not follow the usual playbook from the previous Ekoi races. Série de cyclocross Ekoï #10 – Superprestige in Laval was the most exciting of the series. Raphaël Gagné of Rocky Mountain Bicycles who has really torn up the North East this year was the winner with his […]

Série de cyclocross Ekoï #8 – Boucherville

Looking at Google Maps before this race and I could tell from the Satellite imagery that this was going to be bleak. Picture a High School wrapped in tape. No hills, maybe 1 tree and nothing but wind: A photographer’s nightmare. When I arrived at Série de cyclocross Ekoï #8 – Boucherville, it looked as […]

Série de cyclocross Ekoï #6 / CX Specialized de Sherbrooke

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and you cannot believe the weather we are having. It’s been shorts and T-shirts all around. Turkey, fall colours and shorts! Who could ask for more ? I made the trip down to Sherbrooke to shoot the Série de cyclocross Ekoï #6 / CX Specialized de Sherbrooke partly because […]

Série de cyclocross Ekoï #1 – Bromont

I love shooting Cyclocross. It’s a mix of three great things any photographer loves. Action, fall colours and light, and a predictable course. It’s like shooting a crit, only with mud. Série de cyclocross Ekoï #1 – Bromont is the first in the Ekoi series and in Bromont hosted by Nicolas Legault who has absolutely done wonders […]

Grand Prix Cyclistes de Montréal

I dragged most of my equipment including a new Paul C Buff Einstein strobe that I hoped would give the riders some pop. It worked flawlessly. If you are looking for a strobe, I highly recommend it. The weather was coolish, with some sun, but we really enjoyed ourselves. Peter Sagan of Cannondale won it, […]

Quebec Criterium Championships 2013

The Quebec Criterium Championships (Championnat Québécois de critérium) is the last real race of 2013 for the road season. Gorgeous day of blazing sun. Generally not the best day for photography. I had however, learned a new trick with my flashes that would allow me to use any shutter speed I wanted all the while […]

Mardis Cyclistes July 23 2013

  I arrived late to the Mardis Cyclistes July 23 as I have sold my car and we took one of those Nissan Leaf electric cars. But idiot me took a street I rarely take and got stuck in traffic thus missing the first part right up until the first prime. A little humid out, […]
