2014 Muscle Milk TWMX Spring Cup,

_GB_7558

had a recent gig of motocross with the famous rider Sayaka Kaneshiro. I was stoked to see her take off the ramp literally 6ft away from me. it was such a pleasure to shoot.

最近モトクロスを撮影する機会がありました。業界では有名な金城さやかちゃん。1mちょっとの距離でランプから飛んでくのを見てるのは圧巻です。良い経験を有り難うございました。

when the bikes were taking off the ramp high in the air, it reminded me of the Masked Rider series where the super hero rides a motorcycle running over the villains. By the way the bikes were sponsored and probably still is sponsored by Honda. Anyways, popped my virginity of shooting a motocross this day. i’ve shot mainly cars (shooting motorsports was my roots to begin photography), running girl (i made her run), and revolving sushi. but not motocross. not knowing the rules and course was pretty difficult for me. i like it. rocks and dirts flying every corners, you get that tension from the rider, and simply they fly.

バイクが飛ぶ時にふと思い出したのが仮面ライダー。ライダーがバイクでショッカーを轢きまくる様を。そういえばあれって、多分今もかもしれないけどホンダがスポンサーしてるらしいねバイク。まぁそんなんは置いといて、この日はモトクロス撮影初体験です。大概は車(元々モータースポーツ撮りたくてカメラ始めた)ばっか撮ってて、走る女の子(俺が走らせた)とか回転寿司。しかしながらモトクロスは初めて。コースもルールもよくわからんくて難しかったけど。楽しかった。石やら砂埃巻き上げてコーナー曲がるし、ライダーさんの緊張感がわかりやすいし、あと飛ぶ。
