Cheers everyone, some great shouts here. I think a lot of the problem is the mental aspect of getting over feeling that I am in a rut.
SklarI took a quick spin through your gram. You have some solid stuff, my biggest recommendation would be a mix of focusing on the basics and paying attention to every little detail.
There were a handful of shots on there that were underexposed or had edits that could use some work. Similarly, there were a lot of shots that were not "peak action" better skiers make this easier, but they're not 100% needed. You had some cool compositions, but others that were uninspiring, think about what is in your shot and why. In this shot, you need another light for rim lighting, it will make the rider pop of the dark BG. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bot92uhhkvy/?taken-by=boxlord
Once you have the basics nailed, taking things to the next level means being obsessive about every detail. I think this stage is where you can look for more outside inspiration. Some photogs to check out that have a very good clean style are https://www.instagram.com/alric.ljunghager/ and https://www.instagram.com/talroberts/
Yea I do struggle with exposing and getting the correct WB with my snow stuff, such a fine line with so much light in the frame! I think a lot of my more basic compositions are when I overthink a scene and just go with whatever kinda works, definitely still trying to find my style. Love Tal Roberts, he is insanely clean, will check out Alric, his stuff looks nuts! Thanks man, really helpful!
Edit: Just realised who you are! Been following your stuff for years man, the article you wrote somewhere on skiing photog basics really helped me out in the start.
