    A while ago I snagged some sweet Dura Ace brakes from Rudy Napolitano on craigslist. During our short talk he mentioned he is a pro cyclist, with Rock Racing on his resume :eek3: Very cool. And at the time I offered him a photoshoot since I'm trying to break into the action sports world.

    Once all of our ducks were in a row we did a shoot, and I'm quite pleased with the results :)

    i really like 4 & 5.
    5 is a little bright on his left side, but overall i really like the whole set.

    btw i had BICYCLING magazine in mind during the shoot.
    I notice their covers use a similar lighting technique, where the wheels are slightly blurred
