Last season, our photographer Geoff Holman took his photography to new heights and it shows. John really liked Geoff's ability to use remote flashes to light up the darker days skiing in the trees. This first photo is taken on Lightning Ridge at Selkirk Wilderness Skiing near Meadow Creek BC. Shooting in the trees can be tricky to shoot and on this particular day it was snowing so hard that natural light was hard to come by. So Geoff brought out his very portable strobe rig that he built himself to give us way more opportunities for shooting in the forest. This shot of me (Todd Avison) is what resulted.
The second shot featured is during a trip to Big Red Catskiing in Rossland BC. We left for Rossland later in the evening and this particular photo was taken around 10pm on the Paulson Pass. It was just us, the moon and truckers on the road. The black ice was pretty bad so we took our time when all of the sudden we got above the clouds and saw this awesome shooting opportunity.
Thanks to John and Ski Canada for publishing our pics! We are stoked to shot more and see what we come up this year.
