PETR DRABEK

WIN­NER OF LIFE­STYLE CAT­E­GORY ‘ SUN RAYS TRACK PREP’

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

“This photo was taken at Boomerang Farm bike park in Mud­greeba, which is a fun place, us­ing my Sony A7 cam­era. “The sun­rays com­ing through the trees looked amaz­ing, but it was also re­ally dusty and that’s what has made the photo stand out with the con­trast. The pic­ture was taken early in the morn­ing when the light was re­ally great and I think that helps as well make it a good photo. “But I looked at the other en­tries and didn’t think I was go­ing to win. I ac­tu­ally didn’t know much about the com­pe­ti­tion. My friend Si­mon Drum­mond is the guy in the photo and he’d asked me to take it and then en­tered it into the com­pe­ti­tion and I only found out once we’d got into the fi­nal vot­ing. “I work for Mit­subishi and just take photos as a hobby. I moved to Aus­tralia from the Czech Repub­lic five years ago and I had no-one to take pic­tures of me, so that’s when I bought my first cam­era and started learn­ing from YouTube.”
