Photography is integral to what we do here at Australian Mountain Bike magazine. We rely on photos that do more than just show a bike, a rider or a trail. We need photos that tell a story, that create an emotional response, and leave us wanting to find out more about the location, or ride our bikes, or get on the phone to call some mates and plan an epic day on the trail. The right photos make us more stoked on our sport, and we need to make sure that’s exactly what we put in our magazine.

This Is Now

Fifty years ago, a set of protesters opposed to the rampant objectification of women disrupted the Miss America pageant to become part of the misnomer called the Bra Burners. It became one of the many upheavals that are part of the modern women’s movement, which has today morphed into viral revolutions such as the #MeToo movement.
Over the years, these movements have changed the narrative and challenged patriarchal norms that stigmatised women for centuries now. Today, we need to opt out and re-evaluate the pressure society puts on us—on how to look, talk, behave, dress and live.
It’s time for us to not just challenge but also create our own narrative, our way.

DITCH THE LABELS

My hands-on experience with the new Nikon Z7 by Fabio Marciano

First of all, I would like to introduce myself: I am an Italian wedding photographer based in Padua who has used Nikon cameras for the past 8 years; and like many others, I was thrilled when Nikon announced their new mirrorless camera system. I could not wait to get one of the new models into my hands. When I was offered the chance to test the Nikon Z7 with the new 24-70mm f4 Z, I did not hesitate. I immediately organized a small photo shoot at a nearby lake and later also tested it during an actual wedding for a whole day.
Here I want to share my experience and the insights I gained: Where I see the strengths and the weaknesses of the camera, and for which kind of photography I believe it works best.
