Ski Photography?

I’ve never really given ski or snowboard photography a lot of effort. I guess I have never really been strongly attracted to it. Being a photographer here in Vail for the last five years, I’ve focused strongly on photojournalism instead. From time to time I was given a chance to do some mountain features, but nothing set up. I’ve never used any killer ski models, just random people. So this year I have decided to finally give this sort of photography a shot…… besides the creative direction of action sports photography seems to be skipping in my direction. Nowadays it can be more moody, well lit with strobes, etc. Heck! I just grabbed my new PDN in the mail and on the cover there is a snowboarder all lit up at night slashing the top of a halfpipe! Anyway, this all has me amped up a bit. Here are a few photos of Matt a tele skier on Vail Mountain today. Remember, baby steps.
