GoPro Diary #1
We finally made it into Germany after a bit of a delay which did result in us getting money off flights, free food, the KLM Lounge and unlimited beer. Wonderful.
Yesterday was the first day of practice and gave Rab a good chance to ride in his new Trek Factory Racing Superfly. We are really lucky to be staying near some amazing hills and scenery with a great hotel, unfortunately we have no WIFI which goes to show how wrapped up in our phones we get!
Today is the first race with Rab who is in a good position on the start line and ready to compete. With the temperature finally rising almost to 20 it should be a rad day of shooting and riding.
Here is a preview of my new series “At The Shore”. Hopefully I wont be getting covered by a wave this weekend when I am out shooting as it has happened once already.
This series has definitely been inspired through my following of the surf world especially viewing the works of Chris Burkard and Mickey Smith. Without getting into the water or on a board I can see why they love the ocean.
I have never been one to get up early unless I absolutely must! When I I stayed with Richie (View his work here) I was usually the last one up in the morning while he was shooting photos or working on something creative. I never really had the motivation to get up early but then always found I had wasted part of my day.
This morning I managed to be out on the road to the coast by 630am and found some amazing spots to shoot. Having started early in the day I managed to shoot, have a cooked breakfast, edit, clean the flat and print my photos from this morning.
I would suggest taking something hot to drink on these early mornings.
Took a trip down to Balmedie Beach and managed to get a sunrise effect from the boats. A good evening!
Went on a little adventure with my friend this evening to capture the stars around Aberdeen. We probably looked a bit odd to the dog walkers doing this but it came out well!
