Who is Pierre Augier ? We let PA introduce himself…:
I’m a 26 years old french guy, fond of skiing, who discovered photography 4 years ago when moving from south of france to Chambery and the French alps for university. I’ve met there the thc73.com local crew and started shooting them. Then i’ve quickly met others riders, most of whom the Amplid French Connection guys: Xavier Favre, Mati Imbert, Jerome Chanal, the Lebrun Bro’ and Lao Chazelas … .
The consequence is simple : I became crazy about action photography, started working for mags, bought strobes and started running the french alps in order to produce the best shots with friends ! Last season, i’ve quit my engineering job to spend the whole winters with my DSLR around my neck on the slope or the backcountry. Luckily this season we had a lot pow here so It was huge ! I’ve met a lot of great guys and spend so many goods session through skiing photography, so i’cant stop now, i’mÃÂ addicted ! The only thing i can do is wainting patiently for the next winter, praying for huge snowfalls !
