For the fourth season now I’ve had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to document the Winter X Games for the fine folks over at ESPN.com/action. It’s here where I discover, explore and push my visual style to the edge. The crew. I cannot say enough about the group of talented and passionate folks we encounter along the way. Thank you. Thank you all for letting this happen each and every year. Twice a year in fact. More specifically I have the opportunity to work closely with good friends such as Trevor Brown Jr., Mark Kohlman and Brett Wilhelm.
This is it. I promise. There’s just so much to share and quite frankly I, like so many photographers, am admittedly a terrible self editor. Back to your regular scheduled programming. Oh yeah, for the record I did photograph Mr. Shaun White more but the dude has some serious issues with showing his true emotions at this event. He just thanks the crowd after taking gold and is shuffled out of the venue by his handlers and security.
Sometimes digital files are completely overwhelming. I managed to make 95 gigs of raw images in 5 short days. I’ve narrowed that down to just a couple more blog posts. Here’s number two. Thank you for looking.
A big thanks to the crew at http://www.espn.com/action for another amazing Winter X Games at Buttermilk Mountain. After a long and eventful week of activity it’s nice to decompress a little and soak up all the fantastic images that were made by friends and fellow photographers Mark Kohlman and Dave Lehl. Here’s part one of several updates I plan on making from my take at the annual games. Enjoy.
This week I make the annual voyage to Aspen,Colorado to document Winter X Games Fourteen. Check back throughout the week on the blog and on http://www.espn.com/actionsports for regular updates. Today’s update on the front of the site is a shot of snowmobiler Levi Lavallee from last year prior to the first ever double backflip.
