The newest edition of Mountain Life just hit the stands, and as always the team did a bang up job on it. A couple tear sheets from the newest issue, I didn’t shoot them all but stoked to share pages with some talented people, thanks for the support guys!
We all know a snowboarders career can be over before it even starts. My idea for this feature was to show what the riders might look like after years of chasing pow, girls, and the general lifestyle of a snowboarder. The talented Feet Banks penned the words, Amy Diedrich came out and did a stellar job on the makeup.
Thanks to the riders that made this happen and putting up with my crazy ideas,SBC for supporting the vision, the Squamish SPCA for the feline rental and if you are looking for a cat go see them they’ve got you covered.
The hardest working lady in snowboarding is at it again. Helen just dropped her first episode in her new web series that is airing this year. The intro is nice and of course has some sweet riding in it. I got to work with Helen on a project last year that I can’t wait to come to print, as well she got me out of a sticky situation last season that I will forever be grateful for. She is a hell of a rider and a fine lady, I can’t wait to see the other episodes. She recently dropped a new website that you can check out and keep up to date with her awesomeness.
I recently took place in the Coast Mountian Culture Backyard Booty Show that was making the rounds. It was a fun night and great to see so much inspiring work. I put together a little show of snow porn for everyone to check out. Thanks for putting on the show CMC it was a lot of fun.
It is great to see when hard work pays off for someone and all the hard work is paying off for Helen. She just signed a deal with Adidas Snowboarding, has an interview in Snowboard Magazine as well she landed the cover of the SBC Women’s Annual with a great interview inside, and from what I hear has another great part in YES Snowboardsnew movie. It really is a pleasure to see her getting the recognition she deserves.
There is a new mag out floating around the stands as well as the internet. The crew at Mountain Sledder came out strong with a couple great features from the snowmobile community and I was fortunate enough to get some images in their premier issue. If you can’t find it on the stands click through and check it out on line.
Push.ca just dropped the next video in their Living Legends series. This time around it is on Martin Gallant. They really did a great job on his interview, like always Martin is truthful and entertaining in it and it shows some great footage from over the years. Don’t miss out on it it really is worth the watch. Above is a slideshow that I put together in 2009 for the Island Lake Lodge Photo Shoot Out, where along with Helen Schettini and Justin Van Der Poelen and Martin we won best overall portfolio.
Thanks for all the good times Martin!
