Limited Edition Poster #7 features O2 Team Rider Sarah Bergman! I have been fortunate to be working with a bunch of super talented guys from O2 this year. Unfortunately there have been a few riders that I hardly ever see do to work/school conflicts and Sarah is one of those people. She is one a few really talented ladies from the area that can keep up with the boys and we're lucky to have her. This show came from the third session at this location. The first time we came away with a relatively good shot. Session two was a complete bust. I knew that there was a shot somewhere at this place, so we came back for a third week to try and get it done. Right after we got set up the police rolled up, I kind of explained what we were doing and they were on their way. Got half a dozen tries at this before this banger. Sarahs riding speaks for it self.
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.
