Unless this is your first time here and this podcast happens to be the very first thing you've clicked on, there's a pretty good chance you've seen something shot by either Max Barron or Tom Richards. Field Test videos and photos? Yup. First Look videos, Budget vs Baller, Daily Drivers, Explainers, reviews, and everything Tom and Christina? All of the above, as well as shooting Crankworx and mountain biking's own Big Wave Event, the Red Bull Rampage.
Max and Tom, new hire Stefan Licko, previous videographers like Jason Lucas (who we miss dearly) and Devin Francis, and a handful of hardworking hired hands, have delivered some incredible imagery over the years. Episode 121 sees Henry and I talk to them about what happens behind the scenes, their typical Field Test workdays, what they're looking for in a location, and the challenges of shooting Rampage... like the time Max camped out on a cliff all day but still missed the shot.
Got a question for the PB video and photo team? Put it in the comment section below.
