One day post race, Dan McDonald and I got to chatting about some local trails of his and I suggested that we should head out for a photo session. Whilst we can’t give too much away about these trails as they are a little of a best kept secret, I can say they are beautifully handcrafted and better than well looked after. Not to mention they are graciously flowy.

Apart from checking out these awesome trails, it was a great chance to hang out with Dan McDonald. As a rider Dan is the kind of guy that completely flies under the radar. He has an awesome style on the bike, he’s always positive and in general is just an all round good guy. At race’s he’s the sort of rider that has that natural aggressive style, that is the surprise photo in your haul. Unfortunately for this shoot timing was tight, with just over an hour to get some shots in before the sun truly went down it was to be a race against time. Thankfully the natural Australian bush offers many hidden angles and opportunities and it was absolute breeze to shoot Dan. In fact the only thing I lament, is that I didn’t have enough time to truly discover the local loop.I will be back
