Paris Gore is among mountain biking's most dedicated photographers. Based in Bellingham, Washington, Paris graduated from the Commercial Photography Program at Seattle Central and has pursued his passion of documenting the characters and culture of mountain biking. First as a rider, then a photographer, Paris has long studied the interplay of movement, light and landscape in the mountains. From behind the lens, he translates those stories for his audience through images crisp with authenticity. His work is routinely featured in major publications commercial ad campaigns. Shooting a wide variety of disciplines, Paris' work grasps the raw emotion in World Cup Downhill Racing to big mountain freeriding, trail riding and dirt jumping. His work has been on the top steps of contests such as second place in the 2014 Crankworx Deep Summer Photo Challenge and Top 250 in the 2013 Red Bull Illume Photo Quest.
