Shooting a moving subject can be tricky as it is. But how do you give the speed of a professional cyclist justice in a photograph and at the same time capture the beautiful surroundings? Sports photographer Mark Dadswell mounted two Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flashes on the back of his car and let the light shine the way.

However, when he started thinking about doing a shooting with Australian cyclist Alex Morgan he wanted to recreate the feeling of movement, but also capture the natural beauty of the south-eastern coast roads of Australia.

In this first article we meet Casey Jade who is a Photography Major at the College of Southern Nevada. Casey used Pro-B4 Battery Generators to freeze splashes of milk. Here is how she did it.

Casey Jade chose the College of Southern Nevada because, unlike most other colleges that focus on the fine art aspects of photography, it actually offers a real-deal commercial photography program.

Considering the fact most artsy types her age make little of the business end of making art – Casey ‘gets it’. She especially appreciates the fact her teachers actually earn their livings as photographers, they don’t just teach it.
