Sometimes, you just need to take a step back, look at everything again and bring everything back to the basics. Location, model, camera, you don't always need more than that. That's exactly what Miles Holden thought when he came up with one of his latest projects.
“Shadows and silhouettes are something I’ve always had a fascination with, though I’ve never had the chance to use them for such an extended period of time,” Miles reveals.
“My plan was to show the athlete in a big-landscape setting, and create beautiful scenic images with an action element to them.”
Together with local mountainbike rider Conor Macfarlane, Miles travelled to New Zealand's South Island to bring his idea to life. Using a long telephoto lens and Conor as a distant subject, Miles captured landscape and rider in unison, as a silhouette, bringing everything back to the core.
“The vibe was high all day and we all took home some big smiles and amazing memories of an epic day, spent in one of the most beautiful places in the world.”
