I was there with an all-star crew: Travis Rice, John Jackson, Mark Landvik and the Brain Farm Cinema production crew. We were filming a segment for "The Art of FLIGHT". We were anxious to get on the snow after arriving to a week of bad weather. We didn't know that the mountains were going to welcome us with incredible conditions for the following two weeks, but something seemed pretty special on this initial evening. This was literally the first drop of the trip. After putting the boys on the ridge, I shot this image from the heli as they were scoping their lines.BiographyI found a passion with photography at an early age when I was gifted my first SLR camera at the age of ten. Nearly 30 years later, the passion has only intensified. I feel lucky to have been introduced during the era of film and darkrooms. Early on in my life, I realized I was going to be spending a lot of time in the mountains. I was born at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah and started skiing and climbing at a very early age.I am fortunate to have a profession that takes me to the corners of the planet. To the summits of the highest mountain peaks, to below the surface of the sea, I am dedicated to capture these moments to make them live forever.
