In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
A few weeks ago, Jimmy Fitzpatrick extended us an invite to his free-riding playground Fitzland in Temecula, CA for a quick riding session before the sun went down, and that's an invite that we never like to turn down. Images from Fitzland and other free-riding spots are what really caught attention when I first got into photography, so having the opportunity to go there myself and shoot with those guys has been a dream come true of sorts.
On this day, several top FMX athletes were in So.Cal from all over the world for a short period of time following the 2017 Nitro World Games including Australia's Pat Bowden. If you ask me, Bowden is one of the more technical and stylish FMXers competing today, so naturally I was stoked to see him there. I came home with a good pretty good amount of shots that I was happy with including this one of Bowden as he catches the very last of light with a Kiss of Death.
