The Outdoor Journal has teamed up with f-stop, to give you the chance to ask internationally acclaimed action photographer Lorenz Holder anything. It might be about his inspiration, or tricks of the trade, so that you can capture that perfect shot.

In his latest project, Lorenz uses some memorable backdrops from Game of Thrones, and his subject Red Bull BMX rider Senad Grosic, to create a stark contrast between the real world action of BMX and the fictional world of Game of Thrones’ Westeros.

Lorenz will be live on the Outdoor Journal Instagram account from his Riding Thones exhibition, to answer your questions, on Friday 28th September, at 12pm EST / 6pm CET.

“About three years ago I was watching the first episode of the first season of Game of Thrones,” said Holder. “I can still remember how it hit me when I saw that first location – what they call the Haunted Forest. My mind just said, “Wow.” The landscapes and the look of the world of Westeros were amazing to see. I was immediately inspired and I knew I wanted to shoot there.”
