Paris Gore is a thorough, experienced and creative photographer. His work regularly graces the pages of Bike, be it timeless images within “Buzz,” sweeping landscapes in a destination feature, portraits for a personality profile or an image for an ad like this one for Dakine. Regardless of where it ends up, creating a truly inspiring photo takes a lot more effort and behind-the-scenes work than it might appear. Elinchrom Flash Systems recently went on location with Gore in his hometown of Bellingham, Washington, to see how a shoot comes together. From climbing trees to setting up flashes, Gore is clearly in his element shooting in the woods.
