    My passion in photography is action. I love stopping movements when they are at their most extended. Here is some of my BMX work...

    Great set of images.

    I'd have probably cloned out the writing on the 4th image though lol :D

    What a great set of images Craig. The last 2 especially, for me.

    These are the sort of action shots I aspire to

    Great set of images - they look almost unreal - and I think that is what made me look at them more.
    (I am not saying they are unreal - it's that you seem to have captured the moment that moves past so fast).

    Thanks for all your nice comments guys. Really appreciated.

    Wezza I didn't actually see that until you pointed it out haha!

    Thanks Ian. I would love to see your action shots

    Meeten yes I do love the unreal look where flash is so prominent in an image. I just love capturing these fast moments in time and believe me I must take quite a few before I get one I'm happy with

    Thanks Tom. I would love to see some of your mtb work too

    Not popped in this section before. Only did today because the words BMX caught my eye and I had being playing squash today, right next door to the National Cycle centre here in Manchester. There were a BMX event on this morning the place was teaming with people.

    Your images look great the last being my pick of the bunch.

    Awesome pics.
    Couple of questions: do you have the flash mounted on camera and pointing straight at the subject?
    In photo 2 , you are shooting straight into the sun. Did you struggle with flare or anything in this shot?

    Hi Jason. I used 2 flashes for these shots and try to sandwich the rider with light. I try not to put any of the flashes directly on the focal plane of the camera viewpoint. The easiest way to show this is a behind the scenes shot from 2 weekends ago...

    And this was the final image...

    As you can see I got a little flare from the actual flash being too close to the edge of my frame but I tend not to get any problems with flare. If I do though I will incorporate it into the final shot. Hope this answers your questions a bit better. Thanks.
