The perfect jobe

That the third time I am following for Mavic an epic long ride with a road cyclist. I can say it’s the perfect jobe, we cross amazing landsacape we have time to work and you can feel the passion every minute. Those cyclists like Mike Cotty Zack Vestal and Nico Roux they are doing it not because it’s cool or hype or to win something they do it because they love it so much.

Here is the full movie of Mike Cotty and here is the Colorado loop by Zack Vestal

And find below the Tour du Mont Blanc by Nico Roux music by Solex

Music better to do it in the right way

In this digital world when everything is free specially music it better to do it right other way your hard work can be ruin in a few second.

I just experiment that yesterday. Our video Mandela day has been removed by vimeo without telling me and any warning, in place of the video we had this lovely message  “Vimeo has removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Kirbyko Music LLC claiming that this material is infringing: Mandela Day »

Both music used in our project has been licensed via the web site gettyimages Musique.

After asking Vimeo what’s going on and what to do they reply quickly what to do and who to contact.

I thought it would take ever to solve the problem so I emailed directly to the artist and his music agent who ask vimeo to shut down the video including in the email the contract for gettyimage.

What a surprise a few hour later I get an email fro the agent let me know that they were their mistakes and tell me that Vimeo will put back the video soon.

I must say the vimeo staff was extremely efficient

Back to paper

As an image lover holding a print it’s something special. When I started to be a pro photographer I spent nights and nights in the heat of a dark room printing my black and white photography. Time has changed tool are different from negative film to 4k redcode raw. I really love the texture of still image pull for the red footage, and those days I had finally some time to calibrate and working with some good paper and the result is just amazing.

My digital dark room is composed by

Screen :  Eizo ch243 calibrate by Eye one display device

Print : Canon Pro 9500 mark II

Paper : Hahnemühle Fine art Baryta with profile icc

Also I am really happy to share finally the English version of my first climbing video and with great athlete Fred Moix we will definitely produce some more episode this year for the Swiss TV.
