Limited Edition Poster #6 features Teamlab skier Chad Engle. This image was shot last week in Appleton. This was actually the first time I shot with Chad but we both grew up riding at The Nord and have known each other a long time. This was sort of a difficult shot because it was a tow in with a really short runway and a really flat concrete landing. I few guys "got" shots this night but Chad really laid it down. Look for more to come.
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 Sarah 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.
