Some people are good at whatever they do. Shred on a bike with power, style and finesse, then pick up a camera and produce incredible images that take you right to that place.
BMX photographs that truly capture the feeling of riding aren’t that common – evoking the amazing sensations you get from BMX in a still image is no mean feat. In the case of Matt Cordova, it clearly helps being able to relate to what’s going on in front of the camera.
Just look at the image above: Kris Fox ripping round a bowl corner. Simple enough – but it’s Matt’s use of flash, timing, and tight composition that further purify that moment and make it look so appealing.
Matt Cordova gets it, as I’m sure you’ll agree from looking at his photos. He’s a very talented bike rider, he rides with other very talented bike riders, he’s a very talented photographer… It’s a good system.
