Dust Devil Mt. Bike race at McDowell Mountain Park

It is difficult to shoot cycle racing because the action moves quickly and for the most part the light is mid-day, which washes out all the colors and takes away the quality of the images. Developing the skills to capture editorial images during, less than optimal lighting conditions takes practice and patience. I try to capture images that tell stories and help the reader “live the story.”
