Q&A with roller derby photographer James McDaniel

Roller derby is an unconventional sport, so it's fitting that James McDaniel uses a somewhat unconventional system to photograph the action. He's been shooting roller derby in the Pacific Northwest with Micro Four Thirds camera bodies and lenses for the past couple of years.

With no formal training in sports photography, he found himself with some exciting new equipment and an opportunity to photograph a fast-paced sport up close. He hasn't looked back since - see his work and find out more about his gear in our Q&A.
