Stoked this shot of Danny Davis ran in the new issue Slash, staight oot of Canada, eh. It was shot in May of 2011 in Aspen/Snowmass while filming with the Brain Farm guys for their new release, "Art of Flight". If you haven't seen it it yet, your probably dead or something, so I don't need to explain too much there. I have to say though, that this is one of, if not my favorite photo from last season. The combination of the tilt-shift, the clouds and Danny's timeless style, it just equals perfection to me. Maybe you think its crap, and that cool, cause there's that one saying, "opinions are like assholes, everyones got one." Anyways, thanks to Oli for running this one! Stoked....
A few tear sheets from the November 2011 issue of SNOWBOARDER Magazine....
Never a dull moment with Scotty Stevens...
America's Next Top Pro Model. Great contest and great times. Portraits by E-Stone and Mike Yoshida.
I was actually shooting with an Absinthe crew consisting of Bode Merrill and Johnnie Paxson this day but Phil Jacques and Parker Duke had a jump built right next to ours. They didn't have a photog so I literally stepped 15 over from where I was shooting with my crew and snapped this shot of Phil. Sometimes it just that easy...
Colin Spencer cab 9 over the Malay gap on Vail Pass. Really sick...
Over the past two summers I've really fallen in love with biking. Something about, its almost like snowboarding in a weird way. We had a pretty epic Indian Summer here in Colorado for most of September and October and got out quite a bit (not to mention all summer too!). I had never really shot much biking and decided with the fall colors in full swing it was time. Here's a few shots from a little afternoon session in late September.
I can't say I'm really ready for winter, but what can you do when it snows 4 feet? Go shred, right? Well I figured that it would be the best thing to do, and I can't remember an earlier opening day at Wolfy, let alone one this good. I was a bit skeptical even to the point of buying my ticket, but by the first turn any skeptisism turned to pure bliss. To top it off, there was hardly any lift lines, and fresh snow was easy to find all day long. I can't remember a more fun opening day in recent history. Without a doubt I've got that winter itch and can't wait for the next big dump.

Ready to rock
Good to be back on a chairlift

Random dude gettin' some
Chairlift to Heaven
This guy was about to get all Mikey Leblanc up in here.
The sun even poked out for a minute
I think I only hit like 3 things. Not too bad for October 8th.
It was just too fun shredding so I never really wanted to stop and set up any kind of action shot. This is my attempt at capturing some action follow cam style. Cort Blasting through some baby trees.
I'm pleased to announce that I will be working directly with "Snowboard Colorado" as a Staff Photographer. As a bonus I landed the cover of the first issue of the new volume. Judging by the new look, design and general quality it is going to be a great volume and I'm stoked to be involved!
The first Issue of SNOWBOARDER Magazine is now on sale. Go get ya self a copy now and get hyped for the 2011-12 winter season!

The following 4 shots are from a BrainFarm shoot I was lucky enough to be involved in, last May in Aspen, CO. Some next level riding from the Frends Crew, Rice, Seb Toots, McMorris, Willet, and Bode Merrill. See it all in "The Art of Flight" dropping September 2011.

The next two shots were from a story about Minnesota. A place I've been to every year for the past 9 seasons. To the outsider, you might wonder why Minnesota but it truly has become a snowboard destination for both the urban scene but also the private "park sessions", which I've been a part of more and more in recent years.
