Paraiso Lindo | Riviera Maya, Mexico

I recently had the pleasure of shooting a gorgeous wedding on the Riveria Maya – just north of Cancun on the gulf coast of Mexico. I can’t say enough about the quality of Iberostar resorts and the amenities. If you are looking for a beautiful destination wedding, look no further – Iberostar has a dozen resorts around the world. We had an amazing time and it couldn’t have been a better week. Congrats to Meaghan and Anthony, thanks for the memories!

This Weeks Photo Dump

A record 80 degrees in Bridgeport, CT yesterday! It was beautiful up on the Seacoast as well – I’ve been getting into the bad habit of coming home after a shoot and putting my camera bag down without importing to the computer. I guess the weather is just too nice to stay inside.
Here’s this weeks take. Sorry, no sports this time. Spring skiing is in full effect and it looks like the next few weeks could be incredible up on Mount Washington. Remember, if you decide to travel up to Tuckerman’s and surrounding terrain, check the Avalanche Advisory and stay safe. After all – summer, bikinis and 80 degree weather are right around the corner.

The Yakovleff Project | Fall Update

Well, as some of you may know we’ve been working on a mountain biking film with Sasha Yakovleff. We planned on making it a short project and having the edit out by the end of July but as we got more filming done it became apparent that we could make it into a much more in depth film about Sasha and his lifestyle. We packed the car up and headed for Highland Mountain Bike Park today and had a blast, we filmed from bell to bell, mixed it up and scored some really solid shots. Thanks to Sasha for showing us around the mountain, Highland is mental!

Here’s a few frame grabs from the day.

On another note, we’ve been busy working on the Music Hall Gala video and a new :30 second spot for SNAP Infusion

Take a look at the final products:


Down Days: PNW

Well, in the past 3 days I’ve gotten more face shots than I did all season, but almost zero visibility and wind gusts over 75mph, the camera didn’t make it out of the bag. With the prospects of clear skies over the next few days the season norm kicked into gear thismorning with high temps and of course, rain. Instead of staring at my board all day, I decided to sort through some of the shots I’ve taken on the down days from the past few months. <


Mittersill | January 22 & 24, 2012

Snow cover in NH isn’t quite as solid as Northern Vermont right now but it’s still skiable. We spent a few days skinning the Mittersill at Cannon this weekend in search of their reported 12″ of snow. Well, they didn’t get 12″ inches but what they did get was as dry as it gets and it skied extremely well.



House of Blues | Jan. 16, 2012

Went to Boston earlier this week to photograph an event at the House of Blues with a few buddies. Audible Events provided the setup & Chris the bartender supplied the free booze. Good night with friends & some good photos too.

On a very very sad sidenote, Professional Freeskier Sarah Burke passed away this morning from injuries sustained during a practice in Park City. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Rory & Sarah’s family. She will be truely missed in the skiing community.


Late Week Snowstorm

This my best rendition I could muster from my Utah Trip during the holidays. 5 Resorts in 5 Days; Park City, Canyons, Deer Valley, Snowbasin & of course the almighty Alta.

Looks like a moderate snowstorm is shaping up for the mountains later this week. It’s still a little sketchy as to whether or not it will fall as RA*N or the white stuff but seriously, what a winter we’ve had so far…..this one is long overdue.

Some forecasters are predicting 15″+ for VT and ME….right now the Loaf looks like the sweet spot but we’ve got our hopes up for some green mountain shredding. Famous Internet Skiers weather desk has this one dialed – Check their report on the link below. Hoping to head up to northern VT on Friday or Saturday!

Snowbasin | Dec. 26, 2011

The search for snow continued today at Snowbasin, but one member short. My sister caught a flight to Costa Rica this morning to make the most of her vacation, while ma dukes and I hit up Snowbasin to poach some powder & catch some core shots from the rocky backcountry. While on the gondola I spoke with a Vermont native, who is working as a ski patrolman at the resort, he told me that this has been the slowest winter for snowfall in the last twenty years; insert sad face. One thing that did make me smile, was this hyperactive dog constantly running circles in the truck ahead of us. The short 40 minute ride to the mountain (compared to the usual 3hr hike to VT) was a welcome change & full of surreal mountain scenery. Today was sick, but I’m stoking for Alta tomorrow!


Finally!

Flew into Salt Lake City last night, just in time for one of SLC’s fabled sunsets was a pretty damn good start to my Utah trip. Today we hit Park City Resort – but with the lack of snow Utah’s seeing this season, and no storms in sight, we stuck to the groomers and ducked a few ropes to find some real snow. Either way I was just stoked to see some snow, get to ride, and of course some Apres. My sister and mom both have a twinge of altitude sickness; needless to say I went out solo and have a ton of footage from the first day alone, so an edit will be a little farther out – but here’s some shots & shenanigans from my first couple days in Ootah.


Fall Riding


With my recent escape from the cubicle trenches of the sales industry and the foliage popping all over New England, I took the rockhopper across the boarder to Maine & did a few fun summit laps with some of the camera gear. Still just awaiting the winter weather of La Nina 2.0 to kick in & bring in some of that glorious cold smoke. (Make sure to set the video to 1080p)

Ruffin’ It – Rangeley, Maine

With winter rapidly approaching & all this crazy hurricane weather lately, got me thinking thinking back to last winter and the absurd amount of snow that fell in the North East. I was lucky enough to get invited up to my good friend Eric’s camp, in Rangeley, ME – that was absolutely amazing. Views of Rangeley Lake right off the back deck & thousands of miles of trail to ride just outside the front door. Definitely one of the highlights of the winter – can’t wait for round two this season!


Aggie | 8.6.11

While waiting for Hurricane Emily & with ski season rapidly approaching, I decided it was a good idea to actually get my ass in shape this year. Mainly due to the mild-strokes I experienced filming last year while hiking & climbing lines (not to mention falling down several). So lately, I’ve been rolling up to Mt. Agamenticus in Maine to put some vertical into my running – granted it is just shy of 1,000 vertical ft. but its a great spot on a nice day. I’ve brought my camera with me every time in a backpack to try and catch a series of sunsets, long exposures & other lifestyle shots that include the infamous White Mountains – our winter playground in less than 150 days. Stay tuned for some swells.


July 20 | 2011

Headed north to Bathe, Maine a couple weekends ago to visit my good friend Matt & his family. Brought the camera around with me for the day – here’s what I came up with.


West Coast Update: 7/10

Found some work in Bend Oregon, and its still top to bottom snow cover at Mt. Bachelor 25min. down the road. Heres a few shots from a trip up on the Olympic Peninsula a week or two ago. Just stumbled upon an indoor skate park here in Bend, we’ll see what that has to offer.


‘Cane Season | 6.28.11


The last big swell that rolled through was a couple weeks ago – and I have been scouring through my HD for the rest of the footage from that weekend. These were some of the better shots & clips that the search produced. I’m also currently working on some new sticker & tshirt designs as well so keep an eye for those and STAY TUNED!


6.20.2011


Here’s a few photos from Newburyport, MA the other day – super fun and some sunshine never hurts. This was my first try with some of the sequencing – which is a work in progress.



theGRANITEskate

Usually, when a beer distribution plant is closed down, it’s a sad day. Not so for skaters in Nashua – the old Budweiser distribution warehouse has recently been renovated and turned into a 25,000 square foot indoor park. This place has everything from a “kids” section to some Danny Way style drops. Having seen the other skate parks around the area – it was refreshing to see a professional indoor setup for everyone – for once, that wasn’t made entirely of sand piles and “QuikCrete.” It’s a couple bucks to skate and the cost is well worth it. That same weekend back on the Seacoast, I met up with Ryan and Andrew down at the Salisbury park for a mellow session after work. A couple other kids came out and just dismantled this little park, and quite honestly showed the rest of us up with ease. Here is a taste of what The Granite Skate has to offer.

Gelande

Last year I got the opportunity to watch Swift. Silent. Deep., it’s a documentary based on the first backcountry skiing culture in Jackson Hole. It’s one of the best ski docs I’ve ever seen. During the movie they showcase this “Gelande Quaffing”…check ‘er out.
