To convey the intensity of the participant in scale with the activity is the biggest challenge. A photographic narrative is dependant on keeping the subject as the focus of the image no matter how small in the total scale of the activity. Keeping their personality at the forefront of the image is paramount.
Winter sports photography is challenging on several levels. The obvious harsh conditions presented in the high mountains during the coldest months of the year, combined with high contrast bright sun settings or low contrast blizzard conditions create challenging scenarios under which to portray any activity. The high speed nature of many of the winter sport activities require techniques that are honed on the racetracks of Europe and America, such as Sebring and Le Mans. Those skills are equally applicable on the slopes of Aspen, Steamboat and Vail. Fast panning shots, blurred backgrounds and stop action images all combine to convey the extreme conditions as well as the strength and agility of the participants. Images for resort promotion, events, real estate marketing as well as media assignments are fulfilled on a project schedule to meet your photographic needs.
Cycling is one of the most grueling sports to participate in and portraying the effort and the grace of the cyclist is a creative challenge. The "Peloton" presents layer upon layer of color, motion, pain, strategy and chaos unparalleled in sports. Colorado is the hub of pro cycling in the United States with many of the best riders training here and many premier events being staged here. Events coverage, individual promotional packages and media coverage are available for most cycling venues in the Mountain West.
