Kevin Sansalone Photo- TWS December Issue

Kevin Sansalone was one of the first guys I ever took photos of. We worked together for years during his long pro snowboarding career with Santa Cruz and Option snowboards, mostly in the Mt. Seymour backcountry. Kevin faded from professional snowboarding a few years ago to take a bigger role in his production company Sandbox.
This past winter, Vancouver received abnormal amounts of snow, which created new oportunities for snowboarding in downtown Vancouver. Kevin called me up and told me he wanted to shoot a photo. The idea was to build a tiny transition at the bottom an art sculpture in a park downtown. He showed up with a twenty foot ladder, to get on top and video camera for his buddy to use. From the top of this feature, Kevin told me it looked like he would miss the transition all together and crumble in the flats. Even still, he stepped up at knocked it out.

Outside Magazine BG Winter 2010

Outside Magazine just dropped their Buyer's Guide issue on the newstands this month. Inside you will find a photo I took of Mads Jonsson from a Standard Films shoot as well a photo of Kale Stephens playing in his backyard, Whistler BC.

Because it's socked in so often, British Columbia can be difficult to shoot. So when the sun came out for Serfas in the remote backcountry of Terrace, BC, the 36-year-old Vancouver native took full advantage, stretching the four-day shoot as long as the weather held. It paid off. On the tenth and final day of the trip, Serfas caught this image of pro rider Mads Jonsson, 26, pulling a frontside 360 as he raced down pillows of powder-covered, corniced rocks. The best part? Serfas got to go first. "There was a point riding down when I was just laughing at my good luck," he says. -Lisa Lombardi
