After much toiling and trouble, the Scooter Cannonball Run 2012 Rider Portraits are finally up and available for purchase. Much like the Cannonball Run itself, these portraits were a labor of love. As a two time participant, I remember the sense of adventure, excitement, anxiety, and nervousness that came with the moments leading up to that starting line. It was a fascinating adventure being on the other end of that, as an observer of the rolling carnival that is Cannonball (and this was the largest SCBR since its inception in 2004).
You can find the whole set here.
Along with those, you will also find some candids available here. These were taken on the way to Cannonball, and in the preceding days. I am in progress of doing a pass through on these, including some starting line pictures that will also be available.
If you're curious about the making of these shots, you can see some "on the clock" shots here.
Thank you once again to everyone who supported this effort, and to the riders who put up with my jury-rigged light setup and complete lack of individual time. Over 30 riders came by to get their portraits taken, and we fought a variety of bad lighting conditions, bad backgrounds, goofy weather (e.g., sudden rain!), etc, to churn these out. This was an epic trip and I was glad to share my time with you all to provide you with a keepsake to remember your epic adventure.
