Faction rider, Eric Norman has been very busy down in New Zealand this summer/winter.

.

First off, Eric was invited to work with New Zealand Broadcastings, Matty Walker, as part of an action sports/animation film.  Eric got to go to all sorts of weird locations, including a photoshoot in an old abandoned warehouse, where they had to obtain permission from the police, property owners and neighbours as the warehouse is due to be demolished in the next couple of weeks.

After trucking in snow from the nearest ski field, 100km away, Eric et all got to do a couple of day and night shoots, jumping through windows and jibbing walls.

Whilst in Canterbury it proceeded to dump with snow, so they hit up the small club fields, with the kiwi favourite, nutcracker tows.  After a couple of days bad weather it cleared, bluebird with 3ft of fresh.  Mark Bridgewater, photographer and ex world cup ski racer, joined the group shooting them slashing powder and dropping cliffs.

As if that isn’t enough Eric is back on the road, down to Snowpark to shoot some sunrise and sunsets shots.
