Photographers: Brett Winter Lemon

In this series we're spotlighting some of the amazing photographers we've worked with over the last seven years.

Based out of Roanoke, Brett Winter Lemon is a well-known commercial photographer who also happens to be one of my main riding partners. Brett's versatility and interest in cycling has made him a perfect partner when we really need to get a message across.

The first shoot we did with him was a collaboration with Roanoke Outside. This shoot was meant to promote both Starlight and the outdoor amenities of the Roanoke Region so we chose Roanoke Mountain and with the VeloRiot team as subjects.

Roanoke Mountain is a 4 mile loop that is half strenuous climb, half technical descent. This was done at dusk in the Summer of 2013.

In 2014 we took some ideas to do a studio shot using then sponsored rider and future employee Corey Davis. This was experimental and we didn't have an end goal but it came out really well.

Corey was riding on rollers with a ring of light shining up around them.

The photos were also meant to show off the line of frames we had that year.

In 2015 we sponsored the UCI Lupus Racing Team and hosted their training camp. Then-team member Tim Rugg came in early and was kind enough to model the new kit in the studio.

Our Road Suit was brand new at that point so we wanted to show it off. The team went on to wear it at the world TTT championship in Richmond.

Brett also did a quick team profile shoot in the banquet room of Blue 5 Restaurant. I've always thought that these were the best team pictures of the year in the US.
