During a training camp held at Skratch Labs, Inc in Boulder, Colorado – I photographed Taylor Phinney for the cover of Pro Cycling Magazine as well as a editorial feature leading up to the 2012 Olympics in London.. Taylor Phinney is a professional cyclist who rides for BMC throughout most of the season outside of the road race and time trial competitions at the summer olympics in which he’ll be riding for Team USA.
Taylor was waiting on the couch at Skratch Labs, along with his father Davis Phinney, for a phone call confirming his selection to the 2012 US Olympic team while we were shooting. A variety of shots from ‘reportage’ unposed images of Taylor being Taylor as well as a more studio-lit series of images to be used for the cover were captured.
