we've all been waiting for the opportunity to shoot and produce our own videos, a thousand dollars can get you enough to make a pro edit, so it is a free for all.
as far as pros and ams blurring together, the technology is letting you see who should really be in the pro spotlight, any skier out there working hard to put something together deserves some respect for whatever they do, thats why everyone posts there edit, cuz it wasnt easy.
i just realized your mentioning of freeskier, and im going to try and hold off on a rant:
the day freeskier starts running am photographers pictures with amskiers, which are just as good as half of the protographers, they may be able to represent the sport in some true light. but the sad fact is, storm mountain or whatever bases there magazine around sponsors buying ads, and if your company doesnt buy ads, then you dont get pictures. thats why every issue has the same skiers doing the same bullshit, in front of the same lens. the mag is paid for before it prints. i personally have been getting it sent to me for 5 years, free with no questions asked, hopefully this rant didnt ruin anything, cuz i do read it.
is this thread a joke??? we would be no where and i mean NOWHERE without vids and photagraphy... how do u think more than half the pros make there money through filming
this post was so stupid and u put up the worst argument
no! it is not ruining skiing, if anything it is helping
no way man filming and photography make this sport nicer!! look at other ''ordinary sport'' like hockey or basket, why would you make a basket edit? I think that filming is important to skiing cause it's kind of a unique part that the sport have
this should answer your question
