Wicked Day Shooting Ski Cross World Cup and Snowmobile BIG AIR Freestyle

March 3, 2013

Had a wonderful day shooting Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup and the Monster Energy Snowmobile Freestyle at the Nakiska Snowdown in Kananaskis today.  We had some blue skies, good snow and fantastic athletes to photograph!  I found ski cross required mored depth of field to capture several racers in sharpness and shot most of my images at around 800 ISO f/8 at 1/3200 of a second to freeze the action with my Nikon D4 and D800e cameras.   The BIG AIR Snowmobile event was so visually exciting with the epic stunts and mountain backdrop.  I shot this primarily on my D800E so that I could record all 36 megapixels of crushing detail to illustrate this sport.  I was crazy impressed by the mental toughness and fearlessness of the athletes to preform such gravity-defying feats!

Check out a few of the images below.  More to come soon!!!
