To get to this event you had to have a media pass and some credentials. I was freelancing in Calgary at the time and had to talk ultra smooth to get in. That is a skill all photographers have to develop.
They put a half pipe by city hall along with some fake snow. This picture was taken in August on a hot summer day! As you can see the trees are still green.
I was lucky enough to talk my way up to the top of the half pipe. The access I got was amazing. Snowboarders and skiers were literally jumping right over my head.
This is a picture of DV8 contestant going out of control during a jump located in downtown Calgary. This is a 100% real picture.
This picture represents the raw excitement and uncertainty of photography at that time for me. I was fresh out of college jumping into the exciting world of photography not knowing where I was going to land
