X-Games Photo & Video Recap

I have spent the past week in Aspen, Colorado working on the Winter X-Games for Atomic. X-Games is the biggest event in action sports and it’s always an incredible experience. I was working on a variety of roles, from PR & key visual photos to video coverage – being the true new age digi journo! This rather large post contains a bunch of my favorite images and some video updates that I helped out with. I’m in the states for two more days and then head back to NZ.

I managed to upgrade to business premiere using my airpoints on the way over. Definitely worth it!

Jossi Wells threw down claiming 3rd in the Big Air. So good to see Joss back on the X Podium

When I was shooting Joss on the podium, he threw his helmet into the crowd. Somehow it landed at my feet. Win Win!

  1. you seem to have a lot of fun in the snow at the same time i can imagine the work load. I do have one question for you, how do you carry longer lenses with you out in the field whether its shooting mtb or snow sports ?

  2. Hi O’nev – I don’t own any lenses larger than the 70-200mm which fits nicely in my Fstop Satori with all my gear when in the field. I would love some bigger glass, will invest in some soon!
