So it’s here.. The Spike.. take and support your lighting anywhere..

IMX-1After many requests from photographers due to the Motocross and MTB videos which have been watched by thousands. I thought it was time to put the best of what I had learnt over the last eleven years to use. I have had hundreds of things built and welded over the years, so taking the best from each, I will be releasing products over the near future which will aid photographers like myself who just love using their lighting everywhere…

Today, I am launching the first product of the range, The Spike.. Available in two sizes, 12″ and 24″, both produced from a mixture of steel and aluminium. Giving strength where needed, while keeping it as light as possible, the last thing you need is to be carrying more weight than is required. As shown in the videos and the work I do, I have to cover a lot of different shots, from different positions all with lighting. I needed something quicktht I could shove in the ground, couple of turns and my strobe was supported. The spiral really drives into most grounds, with the addition of the adjustable height it allows me to get my lighting exactly where I want it…

To purchase your spike..

The training courses are designed to cover all aspects of shooting MX the use of Off Camera Flash, both techniques which can be used for any sport.

My love for OCF started about 8 years, ago when I saw some images shot by a surfing IMX036photographer..

The day will cover how to use lighting to make your images even more stunning, for event photographers, this will be a handy tool to make you stand out produce more profits. As I have said, this style of shooting works for all, simple example is the image at the begining of the blog… simple rider bike shot, but something a little special with the lighting, covering a football tournament? stick a kid 45 degrees to a goal, one foot on ball, ask him to give some attitude, take shot, no parent will walk away without that image.. Mountain biking, canoeing, rugby, anything… it all works.

If you wish to see the type of work we will be covering in the training day, please watch the video below..

Now MX… what a sport, fast, exciting, muddy, dramatic… but great fun. this is a great sport to shoot. The day will give you a chance to work on track, feet from the riders. We will cover the safety side of shooting MX, where your safe the definate no no’s of safety. I be showing you how to get 10 shots out of every corner or jumps, leaving you more quality images to sell to your customers. All shot using the OCF system

Later in the day we will have a little time on how to cover an event in a productive effeceint system, showing all aspects of how to make money from your hobby, saves you making all the mistakes I did to start with.
