Our Friends Dew Athlete Portraits

The last day in Vegas was Sk8 and BMX vert finals.  The only people allowed on the deck during this is the photographers for Dew tour (as opposed to practice and prelims).   I really wanted to get some personal photos of our friends (the Pros) on this day, instead of trying to snap some random action photos.  I dont really see too many up close and personal photos of these events, so I wanted to create some pretty ones that you typically cant get unless you are friends with these guys.

One of the hardest parts of shooting pros is getting portraits.  Unless you know these people an have developed a relationship with them, the chances of getting them to feel comfortable around your camera is pretty slim.

These photos were all captures on a nikon D300s with a 24-70mm and a 10.5mm fisheye lens with only available light.
