Claire and Max – A big adventure every month

Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others just go and do them. This interview is about Claire and Max, a lovely and funny couple that fell in love and shared the same passion: images and travel. They travel around the world once a month since 2008.

Interview with cinematographer Taylor Loughran

Over the past year Canadian cinematographer Taylor Loughran had been working on developing, planning, shooting and editing a 25 minute mountain bike film called “You Like This”.

I discovered the film and was amazed by the quality of the images and the diversity of the shots including aerial shots, dolly/crane shots, etc…a Mountain Bike Film done with passion and hard work. As Taylor says:

Good things come to those who work. So, work hard, know what you want, and don’t let anyone tell you different!
