Photo Spotlight: South America

With the mid-summer heat in full effect and fires raging across the western US, everyone and their mother wishes they were skiing below the equator right now.  South America had a slow start but now the powder is dumping and the shutters are clicking away! Luckily, there’s a handful of powderhounds who have ventured down south that we can vicariously live through.  Here’s a collection of our favorite shots that will be sure to jump start your daydreaming!

When I first found out that I was heading south with Warren Miller, I thought I would be riding big lines and pushing it. I mean, it’s a freakin’ snowboard movie and I want to look good and represent snowboarding and instructing to the public with style. Yet, the snow is a little shallow and I have found out that producing a movie is a different than freeriding with your buddies or crushing fast laps in the backcountry. It’s a team effort and a production – with filmers and athletes collaborating to capture short and sweet moments. Capturing these moments is what tells a story and builds depth and rich content. These moments are what provide an audience with the dimensions and sensations of the skiing and snowboarding experience. I’m grateful to have been wrong about what working on this project would be like, because it’s proven an entirely new and rewarding experience, and one that I’m confident will produce an awesome final edit. #thehonesttruth #storytelling #warrenmiller #snowboarding #faceofwinter #freeriding #andes
