Limited Edition Poster #5 Features Nordic Mountain Park Manager Scott McCune. You could say that Scott has had a sort of quite year due to a knee injury, but I think this shot proves the kind of riding that he is capable of. In addition to being the featured rider here, he also designed and built the feature he is riding. I had previously shot this jump from a similar angle with Travis Truesdale, but Scott ended up rebuilding the the table a little bigger so, of course we shot it again.
I truly love to shoot this kind of stuff, in fact, it is the reason that I picked up a camera in the first place. The reality is that I spend most of my time shooting other (non-snowboarding) things. Don't get me wrong, any time I have a camera in my hand I am more than happy, but sometimes I do wish that I could spend all my time on stuff like this. Almost all of the work that I do with snowboarding and skiing is funded out of my own pocket and I only occasionally see a financial return on it. Often I use my ability (notice, I did not say talent) with a camera to benefit up-and-comers like Scott and to promote the Midwest Shred Community. By purchasing one of these prints you can help me help the Community even more, I am not out to get rich, almost all of the proceeds from these prints will go directly to cover the expenses that come from shooting this stuff. The more exposure our local riders get, the stronger our scene will become; and that benefits anyone who enjoys our sports, no matter who they are. The best part is that you get a sweet piece of "art" (sorta) to put on your wall, and the satisfaction of supporting you local scene as well.
