It is a bit tricky to be on top of a mountain to shoot sports photography at sunrise with a whole production team.
Lucky for us, this was a place which we were (almost) able to reach by cable car. Lucky for me, everyone did their bit to make it work.
The cable car gave us one super early ride up and as the others were setting up base camp, the models, assistants, and I hiked to the top. I hoped the sunrise would look something like it was supposed to – and it did!
In sports photography shootings, not only the models but the whole team needs to be pretty fit. These guys were running up and down the mountain, carrying clothes, food, and equipment back and forth all day. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to hike the 3h descent with the models after the shoot – insurance issues. Would have been nice though!
We were lucky to have a great client, producing fair and sustainable active wear without the use of plastic materials. It is a great motivator to feel we are making a small difference in the World.
