Having worked with Powderlife magazine for 6 years it still gets my heart going to see the cover each time it comes out. In this seasons special edition I was very happy to see the combined work of two of my staff making it on the cover. Yasu doing the photography and Joey doing the skiing – a unique working pair but always deliver the results. Well done guys!
Powderlife also featured dozens of our images from all seasons and in particular ran a lovely architectural piece from images I shots of one of Hirafu’s most iconic homes – ECO 260. They also printed two of my favourite shots from the previous season; A good friend Bevan and his dog skiing into Mt Youtei’s volcanic crater and a shot of one of my best friends Tatsumi with a surf turn on one of Niseko’s most renowned and steep avalanche gullies. A great magazine this season – one of the best!
