And then there’s this.
Oh yes, we took photographer Emily Maye to team camp in Portugal. And oh hells yes, she took fantastic photographs. And hells to the yeah, I love this team! When they have a little incident - like Ina a few weeks back and Evie this past weekend - I have an attack of the ‘oh noes!’ and rend my garments and feel like a side-line mom.
Anyway, when Emily was at the mother ship a few weeks back, we had a chat about her experience at team camp and her approach to shooting cycling. She very graciously answered all my probing questions. And then we went out to sushi, at which point I discovered she doesn’t eat the raw fish. More sashimi tacos for me!
Disclosure: I work for Specialized. But I don’t think that makes me biased about the SLULUs. They’re just awesome ladies who are passionate about cycling and a kick ass team. If you don’t follow women’s cycling, you should.
Our wonderful friend @thenoodleator produced this awesome interview/video for Specialized with our sponsored photographer, the most badass Emily Maye (@Emily_Maye).
As usual, Emily’s photographs of the Specialized Lululemon training camp from Portugal are dope. It’s great to hear her approach to photographing what goes on at a training camp. Cycling is a massive team effort (more on this later today). Emily captures those moments that tell the story.
Emily Maye is a badass.
So is our friend Janeen McCrae.
