We’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.

I come from a background in action photography, especially BMX riding, so when my brother-in-law showed up for a visit with his energetic Weimaraner, Charlotte, I thought it would be fun to shoot her in the same style I use for my BMX work.
Just because you’re 1500’ off the ground is no reason not to use flash and at this altitude wires could be a problem. Here’s how outdoor photographer Tim Kemple lights up El Capitan…
