CrossJunkie — Portrait for Cycling Active


CrossJunkie, originally uploaded by Andy Waterman. 
It's not often I get to shoot portraits, so when the opportunity came along to shoot Alan Dorrignton for a Cycling Active Magazine interview, I jumped at the chance. Alan is a huge cyclocross fan/racer/collector/enthusiast, and increasingly well known and respected internationally for his blog To show that, we shot this portrait in his basement, where he stores his huge collection of wheels and tyres. We'd just got back from riding the Ronde Van Oost Lancashire, the Classics inspired ride Alan organised, thus the cycling clothing. It also meant we were pushed for time — Alan's wife was preparing lunch so we only had a couple of minutes to grab the shot.
Here's the end result
