Svein Tuft – Tour de Delta 2010

I don’t see myself as a photographer of people, let alone sports, but watching these guys road race is super exciting – more exciting than I ever imagined. The challenge comes from trying to capture the essence of their performance with my 105mm lens, equipment better suited to shooting flowers, an easier and decidedly slower subject. I know my equipment is not of the sports photography type but in the past I’ve elbowed my way in with all the press corps during the Olympics, so why not cover cycling’s BC Super Week?¬†And just so we’re all clear I still don’t shoot people.
