Volovo Ocean Race in China

A bit of sailingemotions from my last project in China Sanya with Team Alvimedica in Volvo Ocean Race.

VOLVO MATCH RACE CUP First event is over. What a cool feeling parking the RIB in on the lake where I live in Küsnacht and go the the shooting by boat.

The event wasn’t that easy to shoot, gray weather, white boats and not much wind. At the end we got some. The final was quite an interesting series of 4 match…lucky we decided to to the video for that.

Enjoy it

It’s quite some time ago since the last cover on Skippers magazine, and finally with a bit of a surprise here we have one. The magazine is the December – March issue. Took the photo in Zurich during the 2012 Volvo Match Race Cup. Right before the start of the race a was on-board with the CicaCER team. A few maneuvers to warm up every body in the crew was a great chance to get some really close action photos.
The surprise is right during the event I didn’t realized the power of this photo. Back home several weeks after when Brice the chief editor called me that he is looking for a cover image with the girls team I finally found it. As always selection of the photos is as difficult as shooting, it’s so easy to miss a good photo.
