Christmas Eve

The holidays are always a fun time to be up Grouse Mountain. Everyone just seems much happier and today definitely followed that trend. I spent the day shooting with Shayan, Trint and Geoff. The sun was up, and the park was in prime shape, so we got to work and shot all day. The newly put in pole-jam definitely seemed to be 'the feature' for shooting today. Photogenic views and photogenic snowboarders made things behind the lens a lot easier.

But what good are photos without some video footage to back them up? Well thankfully that was also covered today. Trint's friend Wesley Kilpatrick spent the day manning Trint's video camera, and Trint threw this little edit together of the day's work.
