Throwback Thursday

This is the result of creativity, deep powder, and some environmentally friendly pigment. Snow sports shooting takes a different feel behind the helm of f-stop Pro Photographer, Jeremy Bernard. The French shooter spent 15 days in Switzerland with the Falquet brothers and Jeremie Heitz on a webisode project called “trip”.

This is what life is about. Going out doing what you love  to do in the most beautiful places on Earth without thinking about anything else but the road ahead. We often don’t think about things that work simply because if it’s working correctly, you often don’t think about it. 

Photos above show f-stop pro, Reuben Krabbe, enjoying the great outdoors in his fully loaded f-stop Tilopa BC.

It is a special time of the year when changing seasons challenge shooters beyond their subjects and equipment. Some move with the weather, chasing dirt and snow, while others stay put and bounce back and forth as the sceneries change. Mattias Frederiksson takes the latter, working through the transition and keeping his cameras on overdrive as the conditions go from dirt to snow and back again. We catch up with Mattias this past November in Åre, Sweden where he shows us how he manages to shoot both mountain bike and ski in the consecutive days.

Over the last year alone, his images have found their way on nearly 30 mag covers. As we are about reach another seasonal transition, it begs the question, what’s the secret to his success? Click play to find out.
