Sprint! is one image from a series called The Riders that was exhibited at The Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide (March 2008) and twice in 2009 – at the Epson Gallery at Photographic Wholesalers in Hutt Street, Adelaide and in at the Nexus Gallery in Bellingen NSW as part of the Sibling Rivalry show.

The Riders series was shot at the Tour Down Under in Adelaide, South Australia.

The series was shot on Kodak color infrared film. The distinctive colours and grain are characteristic of the film. The motion blur was captured in-camera by using camera panning and slow shutter speeds – ranging between 1/15th and 1/2 second. A 28mm wide angle lens further added to the distortion and impression of speed. The camera was a vintage (early ’80s) Pentax K1000. Digital manipulation was limited to minor contrast correction and dust removal post scanning.

Sprint! passed the 500 views mark on 21 March 2011 and 1000 on 28 May 2012.
