Earlier in the spring, prior to the onslaught of busy race schedules, I was fortunate enough to get out with the Dingo, Dylan Wolsky, and proper Whistler local (born and raised), Jesse Melamed. Not knowing the trails in Whistler as well as home, it was totally left up to these two where we would go. This resulted in some fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants photography, having to check out sections as we rode down them—challenging in a good way.
The boys had just finished a rather large session in the Whistler Bike Park the day previous, and with it being opening of the park a bunch of riders being in town for it meant the evening turned into quite an event. Despite the late night good times and big day prior, both Dylan and Jesse proceeded to put in work for the camera, hitting sections many times over as I hollered, “again” from the comfort (*cough*) of my mossy mattress. We had some challenging light, but in the end still came away with a number of shots that we’re pretty happy with.
Below is a selection of images from the shoot showcasing the different riding styles of the two, despite riding the same type of trails and together a solid amount too. Both Jesse and Dylan are off galavanting the globe for the majority of the summer, but we look forward to getting some more shoots together in the autumn, once the schedule dies down and the hectic Whistler lifestyle begins to slow a little.
