Salomon Poster – Matt Walker

Matt Walker - Salomon Sports Poster

Another shot that came out of the Poor Boyz Production urban shoot in Montana last season.  This one ended up being a poster of Matt Walker for Salomon Sports.  This was another D40 shot from last season.  I shot the 6mp D40 on this one to achieve full frame flash sync at 1/1250 sec.  Not much time right now to expand on the description of what went down on this photo any more than that but wanted to put an update out.

Just pics this time around.  Hope you all like em!

I’m back on the road again for a few weeks so it may be quiet on the front here. Follow me on Twitter to hear random entertaining antics from urban ski trips.

What’s in the bag

05Jan11

inside the camera_pack

One of the things I do get requests for is a “what’s in the bag” post.  So, here it is.  This is a pretty full kit, it would be what I’d bring to an urban shoot where I’m driving to the location, or for a park shoot where it’s easy to get around and carrying 40+ lbs on my back isn’t that big of a deal.

The camera backpack is a Clik Elite Contrejour 35 L

Camera Compartment:

  • Canon Powershot S95
  • Filters
  • Cokin P ND Filter Holder
  • Adhesive Backed Body Warmer (To keep batteries warm and functional in extreme cold)
  • US Customs form 4457 (Proof of ownership forms.  I keep these in the pack since I’ll probably forget to pack them when I actually need them)
  • Pocket Wizard N90M3 Nikon Motor Drive Cable (Connects Nikon camera bodies to a Pocket Wizard for remote firing)
  • Nikon MC-12B cable release

  • PS3 controller (Most times when I’m shooting with Tom Wallisch, he makes really tech tricks look too easy so I’ll plug him into Amped 3 get him started on the next impossible trick)
  • Balsa wood plane (Sometimes shooting urban can get really really really slow after I’ve gotten all my shots I can get)
