Spent a couple days with some hard hitting ladies in the backcountry last winter. Great to see the images make it to print. Thanks Annie & Marie!
I have more images published of Martin then any other snowboarder I have ever shot with. Here is one that never found a home.
I first met Dave years ago working in a restaurant together in Whistler. You could tell right away he wasn’t cut out for the service industry, I mean he could do the job but he just wasn’t into it. After about a month of working there he just didn’t show up one day. Of course working in a mountain town your mind starts to think the worst but it turns out Dave just packed up his truck and sled and headed north with a crew because he heard the snow was good. I think he has been chasing the snow ever since then and hasn’t looked back. He just dropped his last edit of his web series Short Stories, and it is filled with some great riding.
With the amount of time I have been spending on the computer lately you would think a blog post or two would have made it out. Lets get things back up and running with a Light of Day from one of my all time favorite riders Brian McClatchy. Brian was one of the O.G. Stepchild riders and one of the first riders I started venturing into the backcountry with. I even had my first photo published in SBC of him. Last I heard he was in Vancouver riding his skateboard and living the good life.
I have never really shot much of the urban side of snowboarding although when I was younger it was how I started out riding, in the mean streets of Pembroke Ontario. After hitting the big slopes of the local convent and golf course we would poach as many handrails as we could around town. These days it blows my mind what they are getting up to in the streets after watching the Real Snow videos that have been making the rounds. I haven’t seen Chris in a while but I always liked to shoot with him because his riding was so skate influenced and he was always down to try and find a different spot around town when the snow was bad.
