Ok so at the start of the season I thought it would be a great idea to blog about every opportunity I had to accompany snowboarders into the backcountry via snowmobile. Much to my surprise these days kind of started to stack together and I ran into a small problem of not enough hours in a day to find time to sit down and write a new post or two. Being a snowboard photographer is amazing, I get to watch first hand these amazing athletes riding in some of the most incredible terrain around. Every now and again I catch myself kind of standing there in amazement, and have to quickly pull it back together as I am there to do a job. I have heard a handful of times from people envious of the path I have chosen, but want to make it very clear that as rewarding as it is to be up in the mountains taking these amazing photographs that it is extremely hard work. Think about all the planning that goes into a studio shot, the time and effort to get you’re lighting just right, camera angle, your model to stand were you want, now add Freezing conditions, avalanches, ever changing weather, snowboarders flying thru the air, and sometimes you only get one or two chances to capture what is happening, there is often not an opportunity to re-shoot so you have to make every shot count. I would not change the path I have chosen for anything. The handful of people I have gotten to go and shoot with are incredible and are very good at what they do, which in turn is pushing me each time I go and shoot to be the best photographer I can. Here are some images from the last month or so of some trips to the backcountry! These are mostly just shots take through out the day not the real bangers!
