Always nice to see a new shot in print as that hasn’t been my focus for a while and this one was in the SNOWBOARD magazine exposure competition, it was a finalist for the abstract section and just one of those shots that turned out. This was a plan B after hiking up Squaw in the late summer, I had to get my twelve calendar months and Garrett Cygan is just always keen to ride. We we’re making a short video for Snowledge when I figured this would like better as a still and well I’m really happy that it did and really happy with how well the DJI Mavic Pro turns out in print.
My shots have just been used on a new post on For The Ride Motorcycle magazine in the For The Friendships section about the Quake City Rumblers, check the article Here and have a read of all that Gal has to say.
A little while back the Quake City Rumblers had the annual dirt masters, Earnest has a selection of my shots and some rambling words. Earnest co blogs/ dirt masters 2015 through the eyes of riley
The real ski bum dream life, waking up in the parking lot with fresh snow on the roof and the lifts beginning to turn in your backyard.
Alpine starts is a euphemism of waking up way too early so that you can get up a mountain at the time you need to, this is generally well before day break but it can make for some amazing images with the soft morning light.
Turning and burning the days away as the sun falls away for another day.
The season had only just finished and there was plenty of snow still in the mountains giving us the chance to use the ski field in a way that we normally would just cruise on by and some of the best images are really just under your nose the whole time. This image was published […]
I was asked to put together a new piece for the rumblers right around the time Mad Max Fury Road was released and this couldn’t not have an impact on the gang as well as what I would do with the design so I grabbed a few old shots I had and clicked around a bit in photoshop.
I’ve always thought fashion is the best use of a camera, thankfully I get the chance to work on a few projects here and there when I’m out of the mountains.
After shooting a couple things for a friends last year, she’s got her site up and running with a few of my photos sophie-jo.com
