I've been working on this for a while but I've also been actually working so it took a little longer than I thought. I know you've all been waiting for this so here it is. Well. PART 1 anyway. I've got a few more sllideshows from my 2011 photography done as well but one at a time..........damn!
Here it is. 2011 condensed into about 2.5 minutes. That's a year of my life crushed into a internet friendly timespace and size.
PLEASE, if you have Apple TV or a big screen watch it in HD it's so much better than this pinner version (Don't just click enlarge because it will look pixelated and you will think my photos suck!). Respect.
Riders include: Devun Walsh, Iikka Backstrom, Ryan Tiene, Aaron Biittner, Jody Wachniak, Andrew Geeves, Kimmy Fasani, Jonas Carlsson and a few others.............Music is by David Bowie.
If you like that you can watch the slideshows from 2010 here:
It's been a while since I posted anything and I only have summer to blame. Lots of roadtrips and summer adventures have kept me out of doors and away from the computer. When I saw this slideshow it made me realize I wasn't spending enough time outdoors this summer!
If only we could all jump in a camper van and hit the road for almost 3 months. I know, I know, I can't complain because I get to travel all over but when I see stuff like this I get really envious and really stoked at the same time.
Chris Burkhard is an amazing photographer. Last year he won the Red Bull Illume photo contest. His shot was chosen best overall photo. There were close to 25,000 photos entered. No big deal.
Check out his slideshow about a trip he did for 50 days up and down the west coast. My only complaint is that it's too short!
April is almost gone. It was a very busy one for me with a lot of really good days up in the Whistler backcountry under sunny skies. The silence of the landscape up there directly influencing the silence of this blog over the last several weeks.
Well this post has nothing to do with silence or snowboarding but it does have a sunny side to it. There's little project I have been wanting to post for a long time. Back in July 2010, during the dog days of summer, a local band named SUN WIZARD was recording an album at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver. I had the opportunity to get in the studio with them and shoot photos and video over the course of a few nights. It was an amazing experience to see how an album gets produced and to witness the creative process that takes place.
Last night in Vancouver Sun Wizard had the album release party for this album which is called "Positively 4th Street". Now that the album has been released I can present to you a slideshow of the photos I took during the recording sessions with the song "Buildings" from the new record. It's a great song which is adequately long to let me show a good stack of the photos I took. I encourage you to check out the band and the new album.
2010 is but a vague memory at this point. Like a night after too many adult beverages. A whirlwind of blurry images mixed with some random recollections and not a whole lot in between.
Thankfully for me, most of my life gets caught by my camera so I can look back and remember it. The winter is a non stop roadtrip and my bags usually stay packed waiting to head to the next shoot.
Before things get really busy for me this year I decided to put 2010 back on the burner and throw together a couple slideshows. 2010 was kind of an unusual year in terms of snow and shooting conditions. The weather was all over the place and so was I. Whistler, Utah, California, Alaska, back to Whistler, down to Chile and call it a season!
When I started making this slideshow I thought I had the photos edited down to a good showcase of my winter. Once I had it into the Slideshow module in Lightroom with some music and I got the timing to my liking, it was a 9 minute epic that I thought might bore the shit out of the general population. So I went back to the drawing board, bit the bullet and edited it down to about 4 1/2 minutes with different music.
So here you go, the long and the short of it. I'm heading to Japan on Monday for almost two weeks so I'll hopefully have some good images and stories to share.
I posted both versions. The short version from my YouTube account and the long version from my Vimeo account. Different music, different vibe and the long version obviously has a lot more photos so if you have time, watch them both. YouTube took the music off my Long version for some reason. The photos look like shit in fullscreen mode. Sorry. I also posted the short version link to my Vimeo page in case you like Vimeo better.
As I get ready to head to Costa Rica in two weeks all I can think about is surfing, waves, the beach, beer.............
Surfing in Canada involves serious commitment and a major tolerance
for the cold. When it comes to surf photography in Canada there is one
name that stands way out on top. Jeremy Koreski. As much as he probably
hates the term, he is 'The Man'.
Last month Jeremy participated in the Pro Photographer Showdown in
Whistler during the World Ski and Snowboard festival. It's a slideshow
competition featuring the worlds best action sports photographers. They
each get 9 minutes to show their life's work set to music. It is an
insane event. Jeremy's show can be seen on his blog HERE.
Jeremy has a unique vision and style based around his upbringing on the
west coast and the surf culture that exists on Vancouver Island.
