Christophe Launay shows off more of the inventive lighting we see so much of from him, this time shooting the top French Olympic 29er team of Manu Dyen and Stephane Christidis during the final week of winter training camp in Marseilles. And this time, Christophe gives us poetry to go along with it!
Words: Alan Block

A sense of achievement at mastering skills,
A sense of joy and exhilaration at the beauty of nature,
The stimulus and adrenalin rush in moments of speed,
The satisfaction of redefining performance boundaries,
And, above all, a sense of fun.
