The single most influential element outside of other people’s photography in my own work has been seeing the mountain bike movie “The Collective” by, The Collective back in the summer of 2004.  A co-worker, Kendall Card who was the guy that was keying me into what was cool within skiing at the time was putting on the premiere of the film so I went by to go check it out.  My mind was blown and after I got a copy of the DVD, watched it over and over and over again.  The way the movie was filmed, put together, it was very different from what I had seen in other action sports films at the time.  It had given me a completely different perspective into the way I look at shooting my own realm of skiing.

The second round of that same influence and inspiration has begun for me and FINALLY, the teaser for Life Cycles is live.  Back in April, I got to see one of the rough cuts of this teaser at The Gathering (very different than the current one BTW) and my mind was blown again and then, my creative juices were flowing.  It’s very different, very creative, and for me, very inspiring.  It just oozes creativity.  I can’t wait to see the film and I hope you feel the same after checking out the teaser.  Enjoy, and go pre-order your copy on their website.
