Blankforce UK Photo Shoot with ExPix

Over the past few months we have been trying to sort out a date with Ian from ExPix  for doing a lifestyle photo shoot arranged by Blankforce Boards!

Sarah doing her best Catalogue pose!

Eventually we had the whole range in...each size and model comes in a different colour so there are lots!
We were up in Mid Wales testing the latest Epic Kites which we had just taken stock of and had to set off early back home to Porthcawl. Ian on the other had was on his way back from the Atlantic Games with Hannah Whitely and Will makinson all the way back up too Manchester.

They had a horrific trip up to us with one traffic accident after another and finally arrived with us at about 4pm. The light was pretty poor and the wind virtually non existant, however this didnt stop Ian cracking on with the job in hand.

Ian setting up another perfect shot!

Ian got a load of sweet lifestyle shots on the rocks over near my favorite wave riding spot. This was with aid of our two resident "models" .....Tom Butler and Sarah Eager (both Blast Kiteboarding Instructors and team riders)

Later we thought it worth checking the wind as it was now looking (slightly) prommising. Tom quickly pumped up his Mutiny 12m P.Series and Sarah her Genetrix Origin2
Ian eventually ended up to his waist in the sea snapping away in what was pretty poor conditions with a very flat light and very light winds too.
However Ian gave us a few sneak peaks at some of his shots, both lifestyles and action...WOW
I cant believe the quality of the shots Ian was able to get..simply awesome.
We'll post some up here once we get permission to use some but believe me they make mine above look simply pants!

Tom & Ian getting close and personal
