To capture Canadian mountain biker Graham Agassiz’s ride off an 8,000-foot peak in British Columbia’s Coast Range, Jorgen­son relied on his experience as a ski photographer. That and a heli­copter. “Shooting mountain biking is becoming a lot like shooting heli-skiing,” says the Whistler-based lensman. The chopper dropped Agassiz onto a ridge above a scree field, then followed the rider downhill while Jorgenson snapped photos from 300 feet above. He didn’t have much time—Agassiz descended 1,500 feet in less than a minute. THE TOOLS: Nikon D3S, 80-200mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 250, f/5.6, 1/1,250 second
