    Gold in Editorial / sports

This is a study of the possibilities of shooting high performance action sports with powerful studio lights. The whole process begins a long time before the action session. Choosing the right place, that aligns well with the natural light but also allows the athlete to perform at his best. A lot of the times the athlete needs to learn how to work with the flashes, being able to be aware of his/hers surroundings and make sure they don't hit anything. As a photographer is always necessary to not have not a big attachment to your gear. Everything will get sandy and dirty.
