The Snow Makers

the_snow_makers_Blog.jpg

At ski areas like Welch Village a dedicated team plays Mother Nature every fall/early winter. When the temps are right these folks go out in the freezing cold to make snow for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy all winter long. People like Perry Eisert are the unsung heroes who make winter happen even if the skies don't make enough snow. 

We spent two days working with the gang at Welch following them around the frozen hills getting blasted with water and snow. We shot with our new camera the Canon C200 which shoots beautiful 4k RAW video as well as a Canon 5dkmiv for 2nd angles. These cameras and lenses are tough and held up well in the harsh conditions.

Next time you are out at your local ski hill be sure to thank the snow makers for all their cold hard work.

In The Streets For Powder Magazine

Last winter I got a call from Powder Magazine about photographing for an article about street skiing. Their request was to capture more of the setup and work that goes into setting up a feature as well as action shots.

There is a ton of work that goes into setting up a feature. Typically between 45 minutes up to a few hours, all while hoping that you don't get busted by security or the cops.  We lucked out with great warm weather which is helpful since the snow is easier to build with. We ended up with a handful of images,  two of which ran in the magazine.
