Two years, two covers with Powderhound Magazine.  This year it’s Anna Segal at The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah.  I’ve been working with Powderhound Magazine for 4 seasons now, since I started shooting with the Aussies, mainly Anna Segal and Davina Williams.  This photo was one I had completely planned out before shooting it.  From the angle to the weather, skier, lighting, even the trick I wanted on it.  It didn’t completely work out to design, the natural light wasn’t quite as dark as I wanted it to be, however the two inches an hour of snowfall we were getting did work to make the shot look cold and wintry.

This was actually one of the mellower shoots of the season.  No film crew, no crew of skiers, just myself and Anna and we were in and out in about an hour.  I don’t get to do that very often, to be on a shoot with no film crew, just myself and being able to go wherever I want in order to get the shot I want.  It makes work so much easier when I get to do this!

This time of year is always a good pick me up as the magazine publication schedule in Australia and New Zealand is quite a bit earlier with the opposite seasons so I get to see shots published while I’m still shooting during the spring terrain park shoots!
