Freeride World Tour

About This Project

Each winter the Freeride World Tour gathers many of the world’s best big mountain skiers and snowboarders – epic competitions in Japan, Europe and North America ensue. I’ve photographed competitions for FWT at Brévent in Chamonix, and at Kicking Horse in Golden, British Columbia. This series was created in Golden. Many skiers sat for me and these are my favourite portraits from that session: The young world champion Léo Slemett from France, Sam (Ibex) Lee from New Zealand, big cliff master Yu Sasaki from Japan, the young legend Elisabeth Gerritzen from Switzerland, Two-time world champion Drew Tabke from USA, and German powder slayer Felix Wiemers.
