Client: Team Jumbo-Visma
As Team Jumbo-Visma’s photographer, I joined the team for their Alicante training camp.
These camps involve a mix of shooting the action during training, and planned shots for sponsors where I can direct the riders. In addition, I document the lifestyle during the camp.
The final images are used by a host of stakeholders: the team uses them for their own media channels, riders use them on their social media, sponsors use them for campaigns and content, and due to COVID we also supplied third party media who couldn’t attend with these images.
I sometimes need to remind myself how special it is to be able to attend these behind the scenes training sessions. Having a first row seat when Wout van Aert, one of the top sprinters in the world, practices all out efforts is a unique thing to experience.
