We continue with the serie, THIS PICTURE, this time it’s the turn of Canadian snowboard photographer, Oli Gagnon and this amazing shot of Travice Rice, the occasion to discover more about his work.
From what i remember this was a crazy hectic day. two helicopters flying around and burning mad money up in the clouds. Travis and Eero niemela were riding together and we had a bunch of jumps lined up so we all knew that it was gona be a productive day to start with. I was stressing big time cause i chose to go on the ground and run around to get the shots since everything was kinda close in the same zone. luckily i had snowshoes haha! This was just a « in between two sessions » shot, Travis saw this gap and just went for it super quick. Probably the most lucrative day of my winter haha!! thanks Travis, you’re the man!!!!
