Earlier this year in the dim dark recesses of my office I found a box of old DVDs & CDs. I thought I should probably at least check them while I still had an optical drive and archive anything I hadn’t already, onto hard drives
That’s what I found, in the form of a long forgotten behind the scenes video of a shoot some 6 1/2 years ago for the UCI held in Geelong, Victoria, Australia in 2010.
Andrew from Agent Creative called me just after Christmas 2009 and said “Can you shoot some cyclists for us in the next few days?”
Sure, of course, nobody is busy over New Years ......... Right?!?
Find studios, one in Geelong and one in Ballarat for 04 & 07 January.
What could be hard about that?
Nobody answers their phone or returns calls, that’s what! On holiday!
Australia closes down between Christmas and mid-Jan. Photographic producers, assistants hair and make-up all Missing On Holiday!
Try buying or processing film, thankfully we had digital.
Then I found out who was to be photographed;
Jack Bobridge (winner of several Team & Individual Pursuit Championships including Mens under-23 time trial at the UCI World Championships 2009)
Bridie O’Donnell (represented Australia at the UCI in 2008 & 2009, current World record holder for 1 hour)
Some guy called Cadel Evans (UCI Pro Tour 2007, UCI World Road Race Champion 2009, amongst other accomplishments and soon Tour De France 2011 winner)
no great shakes!
Producer Rachael Travis, Agent Creative.
Art Director Andrew Gill, Agent Creative.
Hair & make-up Bernadette Fisers.

Jodie Gallacher worked her magic on the video and came up with this behind the scene piece.
