A new image in Germany’s Skiing magazine. The shot is of Candide Thovex, taken while skiing around the Rendl side of St. Anton in Austria. The rest of the mountain was a complete whiteout and even down below the tree line the light was very flat, but such good snow. This is a secret little location tucked away in amongst a few trees. When the visibility is poor you need to head to the trees for some definition and contrast.

Chalets Companies in Austria

Chalets Companies in Austria

Kaluma TravelI have been shooting some chalets here in St. Anton for the English chalet companies. The photos are destined for the websites of the respective companies and for use on Ultimate-ski.com. I have only done a few hotels and chalets before so I still find them a challenge to shoot. Not my usual type of photography but I do enjoy it. 🙂

I also have a selection of prints going into some of the chalets where they will also be available for purchase.

Matthieu Perez photographed for Canadian ski clothing company Arson

Canadian clothing company Arson  is using one of my shots of Matthieu Perez for a poster. It is also being used by them for a lightbox to go in one of their local shops out in Canada. This was one of those wonderful days snow wise, deep powder. It was shot at Rendl as you descend from Schimmelegg into Hinter Rendl, one of my favourite runs. To do this run conditions need to be just right and stable. Too many people push it each year and almost without fail trigger an avalanche. The danger lies not only for them but also any one traversing the valley underneath.
