Eric Messier Method Magazine Issue 14.1 Gallery

My photo of Eric Messier snagged the opening gallery spread for Method Magazine issue 14.1. I shot this photograph while shooting with Eric and the Warp Wave crew on Mt. Rose early last season. It was near the end of the day and everyone was getting fairly tired. Eric thought it would be cool to get a slash photo so we hiked up the hill for one more run. This frame is near the end of the sequence and is him riding out of the white room snow he had tossed up. Thank you to Method Magazine and Eric Messier. You can read a copy of the magazine here www.methodmag.com/content/141 and don’t forget to Keep up with Eric and his friends by following their adventures on www.warp-wave.com and www.sierrasurfer.tumblr.com.

Ryan Tarbell Flux Bindings Advertisement

Thank you to Flux Bindings for using my photograph of Ryan Tarbell for an ad in Arkade Magazine and Snowboarder Magazine. I shot this photo in South Lake Tahoe at a famous spot during January of 2012 while tagging along with the Markass crew. Ryan is a beast and landed the trick in a few tries. I always love when that happens.

Snowboard Magazine Vol. 10 Issue 1 “Moonlines”

A huge thank you to Tim Peare and the rest of the Snowboard Magazine crew for using my image as the opening spread in their first issue of the year. I shot this image that I call “Moonlines” in Late April under a full moon deep in the Tahoe Backcountry while camping with the Airblaster Crew as they filmed for their movie “Gone Wild” (see teaser/buy the movie here). The riders in the picture are Taylor Carlton, Max Warbington, and Jesse Gouveia. They had to ride this gnarly icy slope two nights in a row for me to get the correct image. Hats off to them. Also a thank you goes out to Cale Meyer for the invite to shoot while the crew was in Tahoe.
