The Photo Annuals – 2013

This is the time of year when I get really excited, then really disappointed at the same time.  The photo annuals carry some of the best images of the year and every year my anticipation for what I could have in these issues grows as things get closer.  I see my shots, I don’t see shots I hoped I’d have in there, and then there’s everyone else’s work, typically from Mattias Fredriksson, Jordan Manley, Blake Jorgenson, Nate Abbott, Bryn Hughes, Christian PondellaAlex O’Brien, Adam Clark, Grant Gunderson, Steve LloydTero Repo, and with the new blood with guys like Darcy Bacha, Garrett Grove and Jim Harris.  I see everyone else’s shots thinking how the hell did they pull that off, why the hell did I never think of that, those crazy bastards, or the one that gets me the most, I tried that, and I couldn’t pull it off.  Regardless of seeing others pull off what I couldn’t figure out I’m always stoked to see great work, shots that make me think about how they pulled it off, where they had to go to get the shots, and of course the ones that drive me to try and come up with new ideas as well.  This year’s images in the Photo Annuals were the same in those ways, but this season was especially a great collection of images as Powder Magazine’s photo annual was simply massive.  Seeing all that great work in one place, it’s pretty rad and I’m glad to be a part of it.

Below are my images in the Photo Annual’s of both Powder and Freeskier Magazines.  Thanks for looking!

November Freeskier – Scott USA – Tom Walisch ad campaign, ad 3 of 3

November Freeskier - Scott Ad - Tom Wallisch

Nikon D3, Nikon 70-200 f2.8 ED VR, Elinchrom Ranger RX AS Speed, Alien Bees 800, 400, Nikon SB80 DX’s, Pocket Wizard Plus 2 and MultiMaxTranscievers

This is the final ad in the Tom Wallisch Scott Sports advertising campaign in the November issue of Freeskier Magazine.  The Olympus quad kink in Salt Lake City, Utah is a rail I’ve been to three times since I’ve been shooting skiing, all pretty well failed attempts for me for various reasons and I’ve avoided shooting this rail in the past due to that.  Of course with Tom, it became a different story as the disaster on made it very much worthwhile.  The weather also came together for us on this one as well since my favorite thing to do is shooting strobed photos while it’s snowing.  It just fills the frame so much better and gives a feel of winter to the scene.

The previous attempts failed mostly because of speed and my ignorance at the time to how much speed is required for such a mellow, long rail.  With the 4Bi9 crew though, we had a ton of people to help, and that included some people to drive a car for a tow-in so we had all the speed in the world here.

The road to Idaho is full of stops.  This one happened to be a redneck’s dream full of bad taste in Twin Falls, ID.

Level 1 Productions ad – 2010 Freeskier Magazine Buyer’s Guide

This is the first of the shots coming out of the Montreal/Quebec City, Canada urban trip I did back in March with Level 1 Productions with Tom Wallisch, Phil Casabon, Corey Vanular and Level 1 filmer Freedle Coty.  The Pyramids, as we called it was one of the must do features on this trip and in the end we really couldn’t have asked for much more on this feature.  These weird objects are actually skylights for some sort of building underneath the walkway that we were on top of.  The weather had crapped out on us earlier and dropped a lot of rain on us in true Eastern Canada fashion and melted out a lot of the snow we had.  Fortunately we are good at shoveling and were able to dig a (huge) in-run to jib and air out of the pyramids.  With the glass on the pyramids, it was pretty impossible for me to avoid using gels on this one, as you can see.  So aside from the extra time spent digging in rotten snow, and almost getting kicked out this turned out as good as we could have hoped.  This shot is Tom Wallisch, shifty 180’ing over the blue pyramid in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on the inside back cover of the 2010 Freeskier Magazine Buyer’s Guide.
