Snowboarding Hopefuls Ten Years On

This one goes back more than a decade! The first magazine cover I ever shot was of an Olympic gold medalist sprinter. It won a Best Portrait award at the Western Magazine Awards. Ever since, I have kept my eye open for opportunities do work with athletes even though it’s not my usual field of interest. It ensures a slightly different, more personal approach as I’m completely, blissfully unaware of sports politics and rivalries.

These three young snowboarding hopefuls went on to carve out impressive snowboarding careers with Maelle Ricker winning gold in Vancouver in 2010. If I recall correctly, these were shot on a sunny day in a dining room with the help of something called “Zice”, a snow/ice effects product for photographers and film makers.
