Today it all went down, cliff diving with a massive amount of boat people watching it all. Only 32 dives with to many angles to choose from. Here is one of my favorite shots, Orlando Duque about to leave the lip of the 27meter high diving board. Its just an odd position and it looks like he is just giving his life away.
Boatpeople, well, they are just chilling..
Eyjafjallajökull is the name of the Volcano that is going off on Iceland right now. Hopefully I can go there this summer and shoot it, at least that is my plan.
I shoot this snowboard photo of Ståle up in Mammoth end of April where I tried to get a volcanic feel to it. It worked out how I wanted, and I am amped to get more of this going.
Winter is coming to an end for me. Couple more weeks with shooting and a tone of editing left, but I can see summer around the corner. I guess it is a good and bad thing, and I will definitely enjoy the last time of snow and make it happen (big shot coming up next week).
Today I had my first bit of summer in my shooting this year. Norwegian production company "Siesta" was making commercials of Paradise hotel people (Reality show about party, games and sex), and I was there to shot stills of them. Film production with tight schedule where I got a little time in between the sets.
Here is a snap of one of the girls..
Short edit captured on the road with my phone camera, from the last couple weeks in the US. Moments, friends, some people I met and traveling feelings.. All filmed with Sony Ericsson Vivaz. Technology moves fast and phones are getting good for snapshots. Nice to always have a small cam in the pocket and catch the moments of life.
Spent a week in Tahoe with Torstein Horgmo and the Standard films crew. Late season powder conditions, Northstar park riding, back country snowmobiling and double flips. Torstein got some sweet tricks going and will have a banger part in the upcoming movie ( www.standardfilms.com ).
Just got back after a week with Gigi, shooting at his homemountain Schoppernau and Damuls in Austria. We experienced powder, hard rain and worm sun that you only get in summertime over there. I guess something is happening with the world we live inn. Anyways, always a pleasure to shoot with Gigi and we got some really nice stuff done.
Next stop is US with Torstein Horgmo and Eiki Helgason. Should be an interesting upcoming week as well.
Been at home in Oslo for a week shooting the 10th Arctic Challenge. Only slopestyle this year which Peetu won (at the same time he won the TTR title for 2010). Contests are getting harder to shoot as the TV production is getting bigger. As a still photographer we need to stay out of the way. So that was the last contest for me this season. Time to search for powder again :)
Eiki Helgasson on the cover of the last TWS issue of the season. This one was shot at windells/MtHood last July, and is part of my close-up serie where rider is holding the camera. All three of these I did last year made it up as international covers. (got a couple new ones coming from this season as well)..
Here they are side by side.
