Does this photograph need a description?
This is downhill.
Friends. Mountains. Truckies calling the cops.
The air is special at this time at the top. It gives you energy. Eyes on the road, don't look at the view. Soon your legs are burning. You can't let the crew down, don't break tuck.
How Max took this photo defies logic. Can a photographer reveal how the magic was done? Next time you see Max, ask him how he did it, it is as amazing as the result.
Buy this art, look at every day, you will never grow old.

What are you getting?
Each photo has been picked by Max as a standout from its series. It has been printed on quality A3 stock at a professional print laboratory. The size of the print is 297mm x 420mm. These have not been printed on Daddow's thermal transfer printer. It is a heavy grade of paper, similar to a printed photograph. It is shipped in a cardboard cylinder. Here is the process:
It is a team effort. That big stomping push by Mitch, holding your photo like a relay baton, launching himself off Mt Panorama. He hands it to Zak, that easy lanky tuck through the esses, handed to Jev tucking the back straight, passed off to Jacko, going too fast through Forest, sliding into the bales but holding your photo in the air! It is not damaged. Grabbed by Harry, who tucks down Conrod for the win. Ten ASRA mum's carefully roll the photo and put it in a cardboard cylinder lined with hay. It is given to the bus driver, not put in the trailer with the luges, but it rides up front. You will know it has been delivered, there are thane lines near your letterbox. The cylinder is next to a shoe full of beer, you know what to do. Don't you love downhill? This photo will remind you every day why you love downhill.
