WIN­NER OF SKILL CAT­E­GORY ‘ SU­PER­MAN SEAT GRAB’

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

“We’d just spent a day at the trails – it’s sort of a secret lo­ca­tion in Syd­ney - and this is Tom Wrigley who was do­ing some seat­grabs and I man­aged to get a photo of him. “I think this was taken last Au­gust and I wasn’t su­per good at tak­ing photos at that time, so I was su­per-stoked the way it came out – it was prob­a­bly my best ever pho­to­graph at that time. “When I was a kid I used to do stuff on GoPro cam­eras and it’s just pro­gressed from there. This pic­ture was taken with a Nikon D7000 and a Samyang 8mm fish­eye lens. “I’m pretty much self-taught in terms of pho­tog­ra­phy, but I’ve also been get­ting some good ad­vice from other peo­ple. “I’ve just fin­ished school and have been do­ing a gap year. I’ve done a bit of trav­el­ling and went to the Fort Wil­liam World Cup round which was sick and also got some good photos there as well.”
