High Cascade Snowboard Photography Workshop – Summertime Snow

Here are a couple snaps from this year’s High Cascade Snowboard Photography Workshop’s Night Shoot.  If I’ve done my math correctly, this is the 12th Annual Workshop.   This program has sprouted a lot of photography talent over the years.   Thank you Andy Wright, Tim Zimmerman and Chris Wellhausen for holding it down and for having me as a guest instructor/lecturer this year.

Portland Travel Guide – Cooler Magazine April/May 2012

If you can get your hands on a copy of Cooler Magazine out of the U.K. it’s well worth a read.  The current issue has beautiful lifestyle photos of Laura Enever shot by Kassia Meador, a Travel Guide of Portland written by Rian Rhoe and photographed by Christy Chaloux (that’s me), a rider profile of one of my favorite snowboarders, Iris Lazzareschi and a motivating article How to do: Salt Printing.  In usual Cooler Magazine form, the issue profiles fashion inspiration and great photography.  If you haven’t check it out, now is the time.

Double Backflip Happy Birthday To Kimmy Fasani and Cheryl Maas

Last Winter I went on a super fun snowboard trip to Southern Colorado with Hana Beaman, Kimmy Fasani and Cheryl Maas.  It was a winning combination at one of my favorite locations, I knew it would be awesome.  And it was, for several reasons but the coolest part was the mind blowing, progressive riding from all three of these female pro snowboarders.  Both Kimmy and Cheryl landed double backflips in the backcountry.  Here are the sequences of the double backflips that went down 1 year ago today.   Good times girls, here’s to flipping out over many more sunny pow days.

Pottery Barn Mural Poster

Snowboarder Natasza Zurek and I worked to make this image one February evening in the Interior British Columbia backcountry.  It is now available as a mural poster through Pottery Barn.

Same Spot, Two Looks

Spend some time at an old hospital in Andorra.  The windows were broken out and snow had drifted in.  It was great light for lifestyles and The One Life Crew had fun shredding in and around the building.

Here are two different looks at the same location in the building.

Things You May Have Seen- Granada

Last season I visited Granada, Spain with the One Life Crew on the way to shred some Euro resorts.  Here are some clicks from the city.

The one, the only, the Alhambra.

I Know What You Did Last Winter- Things You May Have Seen #1

Each Wednesday for the past few months I’ve posted photos that didn’t get published last season under the Series name, “I Know What You Did Last Winter”  I thought I’d freshen up this series by posting photos that did get published somewhere around the globe.   Let the sharing continue.
