|| The final installment in my behind-the-scenes series of photos from Stan Evan’s commercial shoot at Powder Mountain, Utah. This last batch was shot near the end of the day, after we rode sleds to the top of the Cat drop off. We filmed a few shots on the cat and around the cat just before it left for the afternoon. The terrain at PowMow seems endless once you reach a peak high enough to start really looking around. Stan and I grabbed our gear once the crew loaded up and left the drop off point, and with a little bit of coaching into some sweet spots I started the descent back to the base area… on a snowboard. Admittedly the last time I was on a snowboard was my first year here in Utah, so it was an adventure. Once back in the parking lot (all in one piece) we traded some high-fives, set the rest of the afternoon in motion and finally returned home around 8pm. 5am-8pm on a weekend makes Monday a little challenging. ||
|| Another round of behind-the-scenes photos from Stan Evan’s commercial shoot at Powder Mountain, Utah. Most of these were candids from shooting in the parking lot around midday, and all of these were captured on my beat up Canon point-and-shoot. Two fun facts for the day: 1. I stood in for a snowboarder 2. The half-moon shaped auger seen above was actually the FIRST mechanized ‘pipe’ (halfpipe) cutter in the country according to the PowMow guys. A little history just hanging out in the parking lot. ||
|| Another grip of behind-the-scenes photos from Stan Evan’s commercial shoot at Powder Mountain. Also pictured above is cinematographer Jeremy Miller who was onsite with Stan. All of these photos were pulled from my rinky Canon point-and-shoot that I’ve put through the ringer over the past couple of years. Check out some of the other photos in the series to see more of the day, and if you’re in Utah I would highly suggest checking out Powder Mountain, terrain and untouched lines for days. Anyone who says the same about Little Cottonwood or Park City is lying, Big Cottonwood would be the exception. ||
Jeremy and I rolled over to Farmington, UT to shoot some portraits and video with dirt bike climber Jason Smith. The bike you see in the shot below was custom-built by Jason and his father. Just imagine the man hours that go into a production bike, then try to fathom how you would build this yourself. Impressive to say the least.
