Having been on a bazillion photo shoots, I can assure you that the behind the scenes usually isn’t all that interesting. But when it comes to adventure shoots they almost always take place in cool, beautiful locations.
Such is the case with this mission with Matt Hunter and all-star photog Sterling Lorence: As they leave Green River, Utah, to scout, the land unfolds with harsh drama and dusty opportunity.
The going really gets good about three-quarters of the way through, when Matt gets on his bike and starts dropping gravity bombs, which Sterling captures for posterity. See how many of them you’d ride yourself.
