HCSC Photo Workshop – Andy Wright

Class started today with the seasons bounty of images shot by Andy Wright. The Q&A that proceeded had many surprises. Wish you were here for that one. Andy referenced his shots and went into detail about the use of strobes. Pocket Wizards are the magic ingredient to off camera strobe effects. The class moved up the hill to put the learnings into practice with a nite shoot. As a random note, Jesse Csincsak and his soon to be bride, Deanna Pappas showed up to ride. The shoot went down and everyone was exhausted and stoked! Thanks High Cascade for making it happen.

HCSC Photo Workshop- Day #2 – Christy Chaloux

The weather was a little less that helpful today. The campers got on the hill and still managed to come back with a few keepers. Christy Chaloux presented her images from the season and wowed the crew. Tim Zimmerman jumped in at the end of the day and started in on digital workflow.


HCSC Photo Workshop- Day One, Bud Fawcett Video


HCSC Photo Workshop 2008- Bud Fawcett from Dave Allen on Vimeo.

Each year we open up the workshop with a historical slide show from Bud Fawcett. Bud was one of the original ganstas of snowboard photography. The historical sense of snowboarding isn’t as well established as surf and skate. It’s a shame. Bud keeps those authentic real moments alive in his stills. 

 


HCSC Photo workshop – Day one

 

Day one-

Arrival Day. The camp was sold out 2 months in advance and had a waiting list of 10. The lucky 24 that were able to attend this years session at Mt. Hood and High Cascade Snowboard camp were witness to snowboard history. Snowboarding photog and icon, Bud Fawcett gave the class a history lesson and set the foundation for how snowboarding as we know it today actual started. In many ways, the surf and skateboard industries embrace their heritage. Snowboarding is less historical so it is nice to have Bud to remind us all where we came form as snowboarders. Studionemo is stoked to be a sponsor of the event!


The Bachelorette…the reality of reality TV

So this morning I was sent this image with the tag line “remember this guy?”

Since I don’t really watch TV I was pretty confused. But he looked really familiar so I did my homework and now I’ve got it….

his name is Jesse Csincsak and he has been working hard killing it for the High Cascade photo camp for the past two years. I’m not sure if him winning the bachelorette deserves a firm “Congratulations” or a “Really?! You actually signed up for that shit!”

Either way he deserves a pat on the back for tearing up the half pipe every year.


High Cascade

Now that it’s spring break, my plans to snowboard in the sun are becoming a reality! The thing that comes to mind when snow and sun roll off the tongue in a single sentence… High Cascade Snowboard Camp. If you don’t already know, they have these rad workshops for both photo and video. Plus, you may get a chance to see an exploding RV! This is real! Mr. Mertz and I saw this thing blow up on our way out of govy!Exploding RV by Kari Rowe When you enroll for the photo workshop you get an opportunity to work with Trevor Graves, Tim Zimmerman, Christy Chaloux, Andy Wright and Nick Hamilton, Transworld’s photo editior. There always ends up being a few surprise guests, as well. These guys help you figure out what gear to use, composition, angles, digital workflow, the business side of photography, as well as networking with riders in the industry. Basically, there’s not much they miss as far as setting you up for success. Not to mention, you get a private night shoot where they not only feed you, they assist you in experimenting with strobe flashes (to be lugged around the hill by yours truly). Check it out for yourself. If you can’t make it this year I’m sure I’ll see you next year!


Canon G9- In Review

Canon G9- In Review I have never written a review about a piece of hardware, ever. This Camera has me stoked to shoot and has become an accessory to my persona. By no means is this a replacement for the big guns, but as the cliché goes: “the right tool for the job”. A point and shoot that saves Raw filesI like to call point and shoot cameras, the “drunk cam”. The idea being that some great personality shots, lifestyle, the real deal images happen while you are out there living life. Point and shoots are convienient cameras and non-intrusive means to capture these moments, however, the average 5meg jpeg leaves a lot to be desired for professional use. I am sure you have all been in that situation where something amazing has happened in front of you, a sunset, car crash, crazy lady at the bus stop, that warrants a shot and there you are without a camera. If you were going to shoot it, wouldn’t it make sense to shoot at a high enough resolution to be included in your quiver of professional work? 12.1 mega pixel RAW seems plenty for reproduction. ISO The 12.1 (why .1 I have no idea, marketing?) mega pixel RAW function of this camera made it interesting to me. As with many point and shoots it has its limitations on the ISO setting. The noise is fine at ISO 200 and less, but gets noisier as you roll up the dial, (the manual dial on the left side is killer). Nothing new here. I world argue that when locking down for a time exposure at night, it isn’t the worse quality image on the market. Add a little Noise Ninja and BAM, all better. I hope in the next evolution they increase the size of the sensor to help minimize the noise. For $500, it’s fine! Hawthorne Bridge at Night   (more…)
