Three Shooters, One Brand of Radio Trigger

Zack Arias and Joey L. shoot it out at the GPP 2011.

Last year’s shootout with Joey L., Zack Arias and David Hobby generated a tremendous amount of PR, and everyone was curious how Joey L. was going to top his performance. Would he be equally or even more outrageous this year? Would there be surprises? Would he shoot it seriously? Who would the audience choose as winner? Watch the video to find out the answers to these and other questions.

What really makes this video worth watching is portrait great Gregory Heisler jumping into the mix, which ramps up the competition into a three-way race. All shooters relied on PocketWizard technology to make their shots happen in the brief time they were permitted in front of a live audience.

After this year’s shoot, Arias wrote a blog post about his thought process. Check it out for greater insight to the entire event.

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles…

photo by Zack Arias

…begins with a single step. Atlanta-based photographer Zack Arias started out to be a photographer but instead ended up heavily in debt, nearly ruining his family. So he took a steady “day job” and two years later, like the Phoenix, rose out of the ashes and made a successful go of it this time.  Besides running a successful photo business centered around the music industry, he runs a unique workshop on “minimalist photography” that’s sold out months in advance. We ran across him on Flickr with an amazing photo, showing his strobe going off (via Pocket Wizard, of course) a looong way off, up in Alaska in the Chugach Range. Check it out!
