Behind The Photo
Gary Young

After the Baker bike commercial shoot, Krejmas and I brainstormed some Gary-esque spots in the area and this modified jersey barrier met the criteria. Clearly comfortable with the setup, Gary started putting two tires up top after only a few warmup grinds. Zach guessed that a deck manual would be the one and Gary confirmed. It being my first time shooting with him, I didn’t want to take too much time setting up so I used just one flash (Einstein 640 w/ 11” LTR about 9ft high @ 1/2 power). I liked framing him in front of the freeway offramp but cars kept cluttering the background. I was NOT about to ask Gary to wait until there were no cars back there!
