Making its rounds on the viral circuit is this latest work from Nelson’s talented photographer Kari Medig. Kari won the 2008 Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival’s Pro Photographer showdown. It is great to see he is keeping up the great work.
Here’s a show I put together for the 2010 Coldsmoke photo competition that happens every year here in Nelson BC. It was inspired by an amazing stop motion concept and technique used by Tel Aviv-based photographer Eyal Landesman. I took it a step in a different direction that gave me a chance to show the world of skiing in a different way.
The stop motion piece is getting rave reviews from the snow and art crowds for a number of reasons:
- While we all love faceshots and classic jaw dropping action photography we also enjoy creative work that embodies the spirit of playing outdoors. Even if it is shot inside.
- With video camera ubiquity, I have a good one on my iPhone, it is nice to see something a little different than what we see with our own eyes or on the screens all around us.
- It is really appreciated when someone has spent the time to plan and produce a 4-minute piece of video that painstakingly took a helluva lot longer.
- Catchy little piece of audio.
- and that the pillows are actually pillows.
