The Process Films crew was filming in NZ for their upcoming movie and I was lucky to shoot their session at the Monster Jump at Cardrona. Can’t show much but the session was amazing. Thanks to Tore Holvik, Ulrik Badertscher and Petter Kristiansen for the riding and to Matt Pain for putting things together.
Last week I was lucky enough to be part of the first episode of Home Grounds with Will Jackways, invited by Tim Pierce. I shooted a few stills, help out with randoms tasks and have a really good time.
That time of the year has finally arrived, the snow has fallen and resorts are opening. It’s looking like it’s going to be a great season for Cardrona, especially with their new chairlift and half pipe opening soon. See you there.
Everything changes with a sled, freshly groomed jumps and nobody around doesn’t it?. I was packing when I got a txt. “Come up to Cardis now! it’s on!!!” And it was.
JJ, Abby, Will and Joram waiting to drop.
We finished quite late, sun was going down and the dust was getting in the car. Thanks Crispin!
Under a burning sun, L.P.R., Joram and I went up to Cardies to shoot a few things that need to be done without people around. Snow was awesome, but the sun was eating us.
And that’s the second feature … it didn’t work the way I thought but anyway …
Probably it just me, but this year Junior Nationals it was quite boring. Not because of the comps or the riding, because of all the time wasted waiting for something to happen or waiting to know WTF it going to happen or not. So I ended up looking up to the sky a lot a there was some really cool clouds.
I teamed up with Crispin to get some shots at sunrise in the pipe. It was so icy!!!. It was so hard to even walk, I kept slidind down the deck of the pipe but it was totally worth it, light was pretty good.
It feels kind of wierd to be done by 8:30 AM. Everybody was just getting to Cardrona and we were on the way back with shots in the bag.
Beautiful sunny day at Cardies, we showed up a bit late and everything was slushy as … so we started a mini session at the mini pipe. All good until Ben got a bit hurt trying the trick above. Glad he got a helmet.
