A few of my friends convinced me to go up to the 2014 Mt Baker Seshup at Mt Baker last weekend and I do not regret the decision to go in the least bit. It was a beautiful day and a damn good time. Close to 200 people gathered to watch some of the top snowboarders in the region show their stuff at the 2014 Mt. Baker Seshup on Sunday, June 1, on Grandma’s at the base of Mount Herman near Mt. Baker Ski Area. The session featured a gap on the in run and a 10- to 12-foot jump that launched riders 20 to 25 feet in the air and 40 feet out. The event was co-sponsored by Aslan Brewing and Casual Indurstrees. For all of my photos make sure to checkout the full gallery on my Facebook fan page by CLICKING HERE. A few of my photos of Pat McCarthy made it into The Bellingham Herald that you can see below. You can read more about it in the short story I wrote for The Bellingham Herald HERE.
It wasn’t really a snowpocalypse, but the snow is always a story. I spent pretty much 16-hours outside the past two days capturing the snow storm in Bellingham for The Bellingham Herald. Sledding, snowboarding, car accidents, snow men, kayaks and more were some of the images I tried to capture. You can see more of my photos along with fellow photojournalist Philip A. Dwyer’s work in the following to links: Snow photos day 1: Click Here Snow photos photos day 2: Click Here My favorite part is the early morning when the sound is deadened by the snow and there is no one around. These are a few of those “moments” that I captured Monday morning before work. Anyways, snowpocalyse 2014 is coming to a close and it was pretty entertaining.
I had the opportunity to capture the Mt Baker Legendary Banked Slalom for The Bellingham Herald Sunday. It was a pretty good time and a learning experience to say the least. As thankful as I am for Mt Baker Ski area always taking me around on a snow mobile for events I really need to learn how to snowboard, so I can ride with my cameras to get to better locations for photos on the mountain. Anyways, here’s some photos from the event.
The Bellingham Herald sent me up to Mt. Baker Ski Area for opening day on Nov. 21, 2013. It was easily my favorite photo assignment to date. It days like this that put a huge smile on my face. Here’s the photos and video from the day.
