No Cheating!

There’s a golden rule that any action sport photographers should follow: if a trick isn’t landed, it doesn’t count as a photo. Professionals don’t try and lie about the validity of their shots and the same goes for riders. They’d get a bad rep and what’s the point in claiming a trick that you know you didn’t get? Your mother should have taught you these rules, but just in case she forgot, don’t do it on video either! It might be tempting to do one of those shortcuts just before your buddy looses his balance in the run out, but if a trick isn’t landed right then it’ll look wrong in the air anyway. Plus bails and scorpions are hilarious, more of these please!
