On January 4th to 7th I participated in the Deep Winter Photo Challenge in Whistler (see post below for more info). It was an incredibly intense three days of shooting and one day of panicked editing. I didn't win or even place in the contest but I'm really proud of what my team and I accomplished. I've never done any kind of slideshow before and did not know what to expect or how much time it would really take. All of the other participants are veterans to the slideshow contest format and it showed. They had excellent photos and great shows. They were definitely worthy of being on the podium in my opinion.
My goal was to do something totally different from the 'normal' slideshow format. I had a feeling it might hurt my chances of placing in the top three because it deviated from the judging criteria but at the same time I had an idea that I really wanted to see come through so I just went for it. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to get it online.
With that being said, you will soon be able to judge for yourselves! My slideshow will be posted in the coming weeks on this site and others. I'm working out some details with a snowboard publication which will time the release of the video with an article about the shoot. I will keep you posted.........
In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at some of the photos from the three days.
