Ski Salt Lake Shootout comes to an end

The awards for the Ski Salt Lake Shootout were handed out last night over dinner, after an amazing slideshow from the previous week. We were competing in 5 categories (powder, air, big mountain, mountain lifestyle, and city lifestyle) plus an extra award for best of show. I am so excited to share the news of winning the best mountain lifestyle! And must give thanks to Phillipa "Pip" Hunt for her amazing heel clicking skills. Ski Salt Lake will be posting the winners in the next couple days, so I will put up a link as soon as it goes live.

I have to say, this was one of the most amazing experiences. The whole week was full of morning to night shooting. I had Molly Baker and Pip Hunt with me for all 4 days, and also had the pleasure of shooting with Chris Collins on days 1 and 2, and Jason West on days 3 and 4. We started with Alta on day one, then moved to Snowbird, then Solitude, and capped it off with Brighton on the final day. Also, to meet and be in the same competition as those photographers whose work I have looked up to for so long is just indescribable.

Many thanks go out to Adam Barker as well for having the vision for the contest, and for executing it so well. It definitely would not have been the same without him.
