As an action photographer, the most important part of my work is the environment. Choosing the locations well is one of the most decisive facets when it comes to undertaking a good job.
This time we will talk about my vision of snowboarding…
I live in a town in the Pyrenees where every winter I patiently wait for the arrival of snow to go out to enjoy and work; I alternate my work as a Lifeguard Pistero at the Cerler ski resort and as an extreme action photographer.
I could say without fear of being wrong that during the winter season I am doing winter activities every day and this allows me to be able to work in almost all the disciplines that are included in winter sports.
Focusing on Snowboarding, I will tell you that having a high level of skiing (I don't do Snow) allows me to get close to the places where the true pros do their jump, trick or descent
But I don't get involved anymore and I leave you some more of my images from these seasons, working the action with my riders in my mountains….
See you in action.
