New Snowmass ad in Outside Magazine

Snowmass, Colorado has always had a special place for me. Growing up in Western Colorado and going to college in Glenwood Springs, the Snowmass area has long been a place to play and enjoy the outdoors. It has also been a place of countless bike races that I have been to photograph.

Last summer, Big Mountain Enduro had their first stop of the season at Snowmass. For two days racers descended upon Snowmass and the surrounding trails to test their skills and speed. The flowers were popping and the peaks were still nicely coated in white making for amazing photo opportunities.

Snowmass Tourism contacted me this spring, in hunt for a striking image for their upcoming ad in Outside Magazine. I have yet to have work within the pages of Outside Magazine, but this ad marks my first image to appear in the magazine. Super excited!
