I’ve been working on a story for next year … but no idea if the weather it’s going to be on my side or not. Waiting for that weather got me thinking about the places and situations we got in sometimes … so deep, hahaha!. Anyway, here’s some cropped photos , can’t show more than that now.
World Heli Challenge 2011 done and dusted!. Great day at a sick spot, snow was good but the clouds rolled in at the end. Ted Davenport sent it over some rocks and got hurt, big down of the day but he doing OK now. Overall it was an awesome experience and even got the chance to ride some fine pow!. Good times indeed.
So the day has come, World Heli Challenge Extreme Day was awesome, great venue and weather too. Riders got 1 set up run plus 2 judged runs, media got 1 lift to the top and then everybody had to choose from there. I ended up shooting 80% with the 70-200 mm … what a surprise. Here’s a couple of photos of the first day of comp.
Every time we go out, I wonder what new features the wind has shaped for us. I don’t like been on the wind or what the wind does to the snow, but I have to admit sometimes comes up with some pretty interesting surprises. Anyway, good fun plus at the end watched a sick Snow Dice session at Snow Park.
I got ask to help on this catalog photo session for an European brand. It was really mainstream but a good experience overall. Here’s some behind the scenes photos.
Slightly better luck on the next mission, a lot of waiting for the clouds and some really crazy wind on the way back … gnarly!.
Another day out, we made it a little bit further this time but not for too long, weather rolled in again and we stayed in the lower zones … still fun.
2nd day back in New Zealand and the storm just gave us a little window to get the sleds out for a small play … nice!.
