Lucas Beaufort x Ben Birk Collaboration

Lucas Beaufort hit me up out of the blue one day and asked me if I was down to let him paint on a few of my images. I had already seen some of the paintings he had done on the covers of TransWorld Snowboarding Magazine and Snowboarder Magazine so naturally I was really excited to have him paint on my images. He selected two images that I then had printed and mailed to France. A few days after the prints arrived he hit me up and told me that he was all done and sent me over some low res previews which you can see below. I’m now awaiting for the originals to be mailed back and I can’t wait to see them in person. Thank you Lucas Beaufort for contacting me. It was an honor to have you paint on my two photos.

TransWorld Snowboarding Magazine Gear Guide 2014

A few weeks ago TransWorld SNOWboarding released their first issue of the year and inside were a number of my photographs that made it to print. Portraits of Jamie Anderson and Chas Guldemond for the Pro Setups section. A portrait of Smokin Jay in his Smokin Snowboards factory for a one page article on Smokin Snowboards. Followed by 7 product arraignments and ending with the Good Wood Board Test which I shot in the spring of this year on location at Woodward-At-Tahoe and Sierra-At-Tahoe. A fun fact to look for if you get a copy of this issue is my arm on the cover of the magazine holding a shovel.

Chris Bradshaw, Ryan Tarbell, Will Bateman, Mark Reznikov, and myself did some jibbing and filming around Lake Tahoe in late January of last year. This is one of a few photos that ended up being published from the short trip. This specific photograph was shot at a famous spot in South Lake Tahoe that has been hit for over 10 years. It’s fun to shoot a spot that is old, and still see it published in a magazine. Thank you TWSJapan.
