National Champion, World’s medalist, USA Olympian… Criag Schommer was a successful and influential professional cyclist through the eighties and early nineties. A track rider turned road professional with a stellar kick to the line, Criag has been a part of the US cycling community for a generation.
I recently had the honor of partnering with Bell Bike Helmets, a long-time sponsor of Craig and many of his teams over the years, to provide still photography in support of a short documentary series Bell is doing on historical figures in US cycling: Bell All Stars. I shadowed the film production for the day, photographing Craig riding around his home city of Portland.
Here is the video Bell Bike Helmets produced from the day of shooting:
