This month I’m proud to see one of my favorite shots from last year begin to run as an ad for Nike in various magazines.  The image was shot in the backcountry around Whistler, BC as so many of my images are these days.  Sammy had an incredible year last year winning X-Games and putting together one of the best ski movie segments I’ve ever seen in The Grand Bizarre from Poor Boyz Productions.   The beautiful blue sky comes as usual from the last hour of sunlight in the day, you just can’t beat it, especially when you have to even out the huge amount of reflected light from the snow.
