SEB’s favourite shots

NPhoto - - Mountain Biking Masterclass -

Seb has been shoot­ing bikes for a liv­ing since 1996. Here are some of his best shots from his port­fo­lio…

Make a splash

Pho­tograph­ing moun­tain bik­ing doesn’t have to mean pho­tos of moun­tain bikes. Keep your eyes open for de­tails that will set your pic­tures apart, like this wa­ter splash, which was frozen with a pair of re­mote flashes.

Take the high ground

Most pho­tos are taken at a height be­tween five and six feet from the ground. By seek­ing out a dif­fer­ent view­point you’ll im­me­di­ately grab the viewer’s at­ten­tion. Climb­ing a tree along­side the trail is just one op­tion that I have used.

Up close and per­sonal

Get­ting in re­ally close with a wide lens – here a 16mm full-frame fish­eye – puts the viewer right in there with the ac­tion, and shows the scenery. Moun­tain bik­ing is one of the few sports that al­lows you to get this close in rel­a­tive safety.
