Being an amateur photographer and currently enrolled in a photography class at my school, naturally I love taking pictures of one of the most amazing sports on this planet. My mission was to tell the epic story of a mountain biker and his life. My location of choice, the Aptos Post Office. I requested the help of an amazing rider who goes by the name Jack Fogelquist.
Read on for the story of how mountain biking is "Not Just A Sport, It's A Lifestyle."
The project was to tell a story using pictures. So instead of me describing it, here is the full visual story "Not Just A Sport, It's A Lifestyle."
This picture helps show how mountain bikers are not invincible and they live normal lives too
The term "No Dig No Ride" means even if you did not initially build what you are riding, you still need to maintain the trail or jumps you are riding. If people see you respecting what they have built, they will respect you more.
Jack is a very fun guy and he is always smiling when he is riding
This is a more artistic side of mountain biking
Jack got very hungry while riding, I really don't think his tire would taste very good
Jack getting into a three, he has such a nice style
For anybody that has never seen the entire Post Office, this jump here
is about a 4 foot hip I was also 3 feet away from getting
kicked in the face
It was amazing to work with Jack, he has such an amazing style that never ceases to amaze me. He would continually throw down the nastiest tricks where ever I moved to.
