Paris Brest Paris Preparation
It's been a pretty wild week getting ready to dash off to Europe to shoot the Paris Brest and the Swiss Alps piece. My floor is covered with photo-gear, wireless transmission devices, course information, and other logistical stuff. There are 5,000 competitors in the race and over 600 are from the States.
I've also been practicing shooting while tied into the back of a motorcycle with Stephan. We've been tearing up the streets of Seattle during the past few days. Key piece of gear...the helmet. Only a few will give you adequate coverage yet allow for a camera to be held up to your eye for shooting. Stephan and I spent a few hours at the local moto-shop trying on helmets with various lens and camera configurations to make sure that they will all work out.
