There’s deep days and then there’s what happened to us on Monday. A staff shred session turned into one of the deepest days of the last 8 seasons… with no real snow in Niseko we went for a little drive and scored big time! Here’s a sneak peek.
A huge feature article on Japan by our European friends. PanetSNOW published this 8 page feature with images from the shooting with the Shades of Winter crew last season… Always so stoked to see our images in print!!
Nice to see a collection of our images featuring in Renaissanace – the in-flight mag for Transasia Airways. With widening interest in Niseko the request for images are now coming more frequently from further parts of the globe. This publication is based out of Taiwan.

The anticipation building up to this evening has been growing over the 2 year project of putting the book together and finally last night we saw the book as a reality. The party […]
In between backcountry excursions and shooting with professional ski teams we had the pleasure of working with Chris and Krystle for a portrait shoot for them before their wedding later this year… It was without question one of the most enjoyable and fun shoots I’ve ever done and certainly a great departure from the ‘norm’ of […]
We all love a cover and this year is no different. We all work incredibly hard every year to produce images we hope may make a cover shot somewhere in the world. It’s an unspoken competition we have running in the office. The good news is that this shot is photographed by Aaron and credited […]
