Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival

I recently found out that I made it into the finals of the Telus Pro Photographer showdown. If you'll be in the area the 23rd of April stop by for the show.

Thursday, April 23
Doors 8pm | Show 9pm

Action sports photographers hold time still.

Out in the field, the mountains, the surf, they lug gear and lenses to capture the most dynamic moments in action sports, pushing back the passage of time with their shutter-fingers, and an eye for the extraordinary.

At the twelfth annual Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown, these freeze frames are curated into 9 minute digital slide-shows by a half dozen of the best lifestyle and action photographers in the world, competing for the title of Best in Show and a $10,000 grand prize.

Dubbed the “Sundance Festival of Action Photography”, the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival’s Pro Photographer Showdown is a visual feast and the preeminent action sports photography event in the world.

The Call for Photographers is Out. Submission deadline is Thursday, February 26th.

The 2000-seat Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown sells out every year. Tickets will go on sale late February.

 This photo was taken in Whistler Canada. John Jackson is one of my favorite snowboarder to shoot. Seeing him snowboard in real life is one of the most amazing things i have ever seen.
