Show me amazing XC photography
I’ve gone and got myself a job this weekend covering an XC race. Something which is totally new to me. I’ve done loads of DH but mostly motorsports.
Where should I look for inspiration? i.e. what can you show me to get my imagination going while I’m sitting at work all day? I can’t really spend too long Googling stuff!
Any tips or pointers? It’s the NPS in Essex this weekend so if you know the area that’s good.

Nope, no racing on the Olympic track this year while they turn it into a trail centre, back again next year.
There are vids on YouTube, have a look at those. I’d suggest you’re as well to place yourself on an interesting looking ‘feature’ – be that a jump, drop, corner etc, so context on the area may not help that much, they’ve not done much racing there, and it’s never hosted a national. As I said, I’d probably aim for the BMX track.
I’ve heard the area is flat and grassy if that helps.Posted 3 years agomark88Member
I love any shots that show the pain on the face on tough climbs.Posted 3 years ago
But failing that, something along these lines…

Do we get to see the fruits of your labour?
They’ve been submitted to the company that wants them. They’re doing a press release, if I spot it online I’ll share it here.
I did alright I think. Cool track full of features plus blazing sunshine. It’s hard shooting a race when you’re only looking for 4 or 5 riders! Some of the best pics I got were practice shots of people I don’t know.Posted 3 years ago
