Smokin Snowboards in Japan

In January I traveled to Japan with the Smokin Snowboards team consisting of Deadlung, Lane Knaack, Kyle Clancy, Will Bateman, and Jake Rose to snowboard street and powder. The trip was a lot of fun and I got to meet a bunch of cool new people. Click on the following link to see all the photos I shot and a video that was made by Matt Mead http://snowboarding.transworld.net/1000219679/photos/smokin-japan/.

Niko Cioffi Snowboard Mag Issue 10.3

Niko and the Gremlinz hit me up early last season to go out and shoot on the train tunnels which are a popular spot in Lake Tahoe. Niko was redirecting into this wall and I really wanted a base shot because he was riding one of the new GBP snowboards so I stuck my self under him and in the corner. I only got two frames from this angle but it looks like it was worth it.
