Pistol

To get the perfect shot of Pistol Pete Loncarevich’s Vans with SPD cleats/pedals, I was laying on the ground with my head wedged between two rocks, a few flashes around me and an assistant holding a softbox over to the side to capture the sunset and his motion. He was inches over my fisheye lens, and he did the jump about 25 times. You HAVE to trust the rider. But it was Pete, a consummate professional, I knew I was safe.
