We’ve covered Dan Bailey several times on the PocketWizard blog. One of his most recent posts is a great behind-the-scenes look at how to execute flash photography with snow biking as the subject.

Hoping to catch the sunset through a spot of second-growth trees, yet have the rider and bike properly illuminated, Bailey triggered a TritonFlash with two PocketWizard PlusX radios.

Boom! Dan Bailey on the PlusX

“The PlusX is a trigger,” adventure photographer Dan Bailey writes, “No more, no less. One button, knob. Connect to flash/camera, turn it on, set the channel and boom. You’re ready to fire. Boundless creative options.”

Dan recommends our newest trigger for two types of photographers. “At $99 each,” he writes, “the new PlusX is by far the best value for a radio trigger. It’s the perfect choice for photographers who are just entering the world of radio remotes, as well as shooters who just need more triggers because they keep getting more lights.”

Dan Bailey’s Mountain Biking Self-Portrait

Dan BaileyWe’ve profiled photographer and adventurer Dan Bailey before, and now he’s back with a post about the creation and inspiration behind his recent mountain biking self-portrait.

Inspired by a photo he saw by Australian photographer Tim Arch, Dan set out to try to make his own. After finding the perfect spot, Dan set up his camera and lights on the side of the trail and used his PocketWizard Plus III triggers to remotely fire the camera. That way he could carry one unit with him on his bike and, with some luck, fire the camera at exactly the right moment.

In under 30 minutes, Dan had gotten himself an awesome shot and probably plenty of bug bites.

Read the full post and check out his site for more adventure photography. Nice job, Dan!

Dan Bailey’s Big Adventures

While attending Berklee College of Music, Dan Bailey bought a camera. That was all it took. “I got really enamored with photography and I transitioned my mindset out of trying to get a job in the music business,” he says.

After getting a degree in Music Production and Engineering, he became an assistant editor at a stock agency in Boston for a year, then moved back to his native Colorado to pursue a career shooting. That was 14 years ago in Fort Collins. He has since moved to Alaska, where he’s been based in Anchorage for almost three years. “I’m trying to establish myself as a local photographer but also take advantage of what Alaska offers in terms of its photographic opportunities,” he explains.
