Its that time again. WSSF. The world ski and snowboard festival.  Live music and the worlds best skiers and snowboarders decend every year on Whistler for the best end of season party in the world.  It’s always a busy couple of weeks shooting the various events and trying to squeeze in shoots with the skiers between events.  I spent the last couple of days shooting with Jossi Wells who is here to compete in the Big Air event tomorrow night.  Practice for that started this evening (see above photo, 5dMKII , 1/320 f7.1, 15mm).

Tomorrow i’m stoked to be shooting with last years Superpipe winner Tucker Perkins, we always get good shots when we work together.  I should have just enough time to get back home, charge batteries and get back to the village for the big air finals tomorrow night.  Sunday is the Orage Masters team competition and then on Monday I will shoot a bit of the pipe competition before packing up all my gear and heading to Vancouver for a couple of days to work on a catalog shoot for the clothing company Orage. Then straight back up to Whis again for one more day with Tucker before he heads back to the US.  Might take aday off after all that…… but maybe i’ll just shoot the snowboard cometitions too as I can always sell a few of those shots to a couple of snowboard mags I do some work for.  When thats all over and done with I have another cool project on the horizon.  Hope to post more details soon and cover the whole thing with some behind the scenes photos……stay tuned.  Busy busy.
