Last week. North and Fanatic International team rider Victor Fernandez came to sunny Shoreham to hang out with some of the K66 team. Whilst he was here, we took the opportunity to involve Victor in a unique photographic project that K66 are supporting.
In the last couple of weeks, K66 has become involved in an exciting and unusual project with photographer Tomas Januska.
Tomas is a freelance photographer, currently studying photography at London’s UEL.
It is quite apparent that Tomas has a talent and a unique style in this arena which is shown through his work and current project, hence our interest and involvement.
What makes Tomas unique to other photographers is his technique. Instead of using a state of the art digital camera, a more traditional approach is being taken, using film and shooting directly onto glass plates or paper which gives the photo depth, prompting curiosity in the person observing the image.
In his current project, called ‘Freedom’, Tomas is shooting water sports athletes and fanatics. But instead of focusing on the person doing their sport, the project focuses on the person and personality behind the sport, which is what makes this a truly interesting concept. A documentary will also run along side the photographic side too, so the audience can get more of an insight into the person stood in front of the camera.
During 2013 Tomas will be travelling around the UK shooting the K66 team and looking for other subjects.

Due to Victor’s tight schedule, Tomas was unable to shoot using the specific technique for the ‘Freedom’ project, however, we still managed to get a jolly nice shot of Victor, shown on Tomas’s blog. The photograph to be used in the final exhibition will be shown at a later date. Next up, K66’s ION team rider Dan Sweeny and Fanatic team rider Tony Peters. Keep an eye out for up-dates on the K66 website and on Tomas’s Blog.
