Today is Day 2. I have some images from Rock Climbing and BMX.

7:30 am until 2am is not leaving much time for sleep but you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do.

Here are a few shots:

I am in Colorado Springs this week at The Summit Series Sports Photography Workshop.
I will try to do a little post everyday but we’re working about 12-14 hours a day so it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time.
Most of this afternoon was spent at a local skatepark with a few local rippers.
The use of remote flashes and great clouds made for some interesting photographs.
All photos were made using 2 off camera remote flashes triggered by radio poppers.
