We spent a glorious Austin afternoon with Jacob Cope of Lone Star Wake Rentals for some high speed lifestyle sports photography. Lone Star Wake rentals provides rentals and wakeboard lessons for athletes of all skill level. Jacob brought some friends and we got to watch the pros in action during our shoot.
Lifestyle Sports Photography: Wakeboarding
Sports photography is exciting because of the speed. You never know exactly where your subject will be at any given time, and there are many unknowns to deal with. A steady hand and quick reflexes are necessary to capture the action as it happens. We shot from the boat as the athletes surfed behind.
Lake Austin is the perfect location for wakeboarding. The calm waters make it easy and predictable for the rider and driver alike. The weather was gorgeous and the entertainment was amazing. The wakeboarders showcased their skill with ease, and we showcased our photographic talent capturing the moments.
Jacob’s friends were incredible wakeboarders. They flipped, surfed, and rode with ease and finesse. We love how the water looks like it has a mind of its own in the next picture.
What better way to spend a gorgeous Austin afternoon, than on a boat snapping pictures of awesome athletes? We’ll go anywhere to capture an amazing photo.
