Chasing the America’s Cup

August 22nd, 2013 By Jennifer Isenhart Featured, Field Production | Comments 2

Wide Eye Photographer Bill Krumm is on a wild ride. He’s chasing the world’s fastest sailboats around San Francisco Bay on assignment at the America’s Cup. Bill’s text after one day on the water: “Woo hoo! Imagine shooting from a wild bull in a thunderstorm and you’ll know what it’s like to ride a souped up 600hp chase boat at 40 mph thru ocean chop! The AC72’s sail faster than most any power boat can motor. We’re having to be flexible because it’s a whole new style of shooting.”

Our talented friends at Micron Digital Imagery Group invited Bill to join the shoot. Eric Barth from Micron is the other photographer on board for the adventure.

Bill and Eric are shooting the America’s Cup for Lexar, a maker of digital memory cards for the cameras we all use and rely upon in every kind of condition.

The America’s Cup is the oldest active trophy in international sport.

    What a rough life you life you live Bill. That day would be like a dream come true for me. I wish I were with you. I can’t wait to here your stories and see your pics.

      Thanks for the comment, John. I was thinking of you the whole time I was shooting…I knew you should have been there. Here’s the profile we did on Onne. Shooting the AC-72s was much tougher than he makes it look. Thank goodness for some calm water on the bay one afternoon….
