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...
In search of an image for Photo of The Day, I came across this shot featuring Destin Cantrell from an evening shooting at Jimmy Fitzpatrick's FMX playground Fitzland. By now, many of you may recognize this particular location from the pages of TransWorld Motocross Magazine, as we've rattled off thousands and thousands of photos at the Temecula, CA facility over the years. I came across this particular shot on accident as I searched for another photo, but had a change of heart and went with this image for the simple fact that I like it more!
Shooting at Fitzland is a surreal experience for me at times since I grew up drooling over the photographs in the SCAN section of TWMX. The images that Garth Milan, Chris Kinman, Chris Tedesco and Brendan Lutes produced for the pages of SCAN were unmatched by any other photographer in my opinion, so I always try to keep their "photographic eye" in mind; especially when I'm shooting or filming at Fitzland.
