Red Hook Crit No.10 - Focus on the Photographers - Julio Bustamante

During this years RHC I decided to take a look beside me and photograph some of the homies that work hard capturing the red hook crit experience. Some say that the race wouldn't be what it is today without the messengers that competed in the past. Well i believe that the race wouldn't be what it is today without the amazing photographers that have the talent to capture all of red hook crit's special moments with the entire world.

I asked Compton, Los Angeles homie, Julio Bustamante 6 Questions about his experience photographing the 10th Edition of the Red Hook Criterium series. Check out what he has to say below and make sure to check out his take of the race on instagram & his .com.

 Keith Morisson, Julio Bustamante, Mike Dann & Kamal Balgobin - Photo: Cordell Murray    What kind of photographer do you consider yourself?   Fat one... err... i mean... Rad one.. no... I mean..... Ok, Ok ... I consider myself an Action Journalist Photographer.    What Equipment did you shoot with at RHC10?   NIkon D4 & D750, 70-200 2.8, Sigma 35mm 1.4 & Godox Speed Lights.    What were you specifically looking to photograph?   Teams that flew out from the West Coast to compete like State Bike Co, The Heavy Pedal, Throne & Leader FHTN.    How many photos did you shoot in total?   Just under 2k    How many times have you shot at a Red Hook event?   Just the NYC one.    What was your favorite moment of the race day to shoot and why?   I was in love with the idea of shooting at night for the main race. Popping flash and dragging the shutter really gives you a sense of how fast the women and men can go.   Criterium Photos - by: Julio Bustamante
