One of the added benefits of shooting with Byron Wells is since he’s from New Zealand and their ski magazines come out in June I get to see my photos in print a lot earlier than waiting 6 months for the photos to run in the ski magazines up in the Northern Hemisphere.  This year is no different except Byron’s a bit more prominent in the magazine this time!  Apparently the cover has some pretty good detail treatment with a bunch of foil print on the text so I’m pretty excited to see it in person.  This is a shot from 2010 in Park City in this little backcountry urban zone as I like to call it that crews have been milking for the past few seasons.  The old mining buildings in this zone make for some pretty unique shooting opportunities.  This shot has was actually a horizontal shot and was cropped quite a bit to fit the vertical cover.  Just about every time I’ve shot urban with Byron, it’s something he hasn’t tried before, but we always end up getting shots.  He’s one hard working kid that wants to get shots.  Glad Byron finally has a cover shot down there.  Check out the original below.
