This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing Team Jowetts Cycles, a team I myself belong to. Photographing a photoshoot that I needed to be part of brought up some interesting challenges. But, luckily thanks to some helping hands and the advancement in wireless technology, we managed to get the job done.
After the formalities were complete; where we all received new kit and gear for the new season, we set out in search for a place to have a photoshoot of the entire team. Luckily we were blessed to be in an area with many options to choose from. The team elected to ride to the location of choice,I however, had all my camera gear, so I took the wise move to drive there, being a cool 38 degrees I thought it was a wise move as well.
The team for 2018 is mainly split into 2 categories.The athletes in the black Jowetts attire are a full on racing team with members achieving victories and podiums on a regular basis. Natalie Bergstrom is a former Masters World Champion, giving great inspiration to everyone in the entire team. The athletes in the white gear are more up and coming stars or ambassadors to Jowetts cycles; such as myself. Both teams are immensely talented and passionate about cycling and the brand they represent.
The team is a perfect mixture of youth and experience. Where the 'youngsters' of the sport can learn and gain experiences from the more experienced athletes. Overall it is one big happy Jowetts Cycles family. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Ingrid and Wally Flint from Jowetts Cycles for all the support and effort the have done for all of us in the team. We are all excited for 2018.
