Mammut Athlete Kevin Brower Gets The Cover!

     I think this might have been one of the first photo shoots with my new Mammut outerwear.
When Steve said he had an idea for a night shot, I was a little reluctant because like most night shoots they tend to take 3 times longer then you think they should.  That night at Brighton was no different.  The conditions were less than ideal, the feature was pretty challenging and it was dark.  
     After planning out what we wanted to accomplish we built the jump and chopped up the sun crusted landing. It was flat. (A fact that most photographers pay no attention to.) ha.  It took me a few tries to figure out how to hand drag the tree and not get my hand stuck in the stump, it took Steve a few tries to get his shot figured out and for the flashes to all work at the same time.  After a few hours and many more jumps I was tired and beat.  We had gotten a few great shots and we were both pretty stoked on what we had accomplished.  But after review you can alway find something that isn't quite right, so Steve asked for one final shot from a different angle, just to see how it looked.  I did it and we were both right on the money.  
    This shot was actually taken a year or two ago and we have always been amazed that it has not been used. Little did we know it was being saved for a cover.  Most people don't believe it but this is actually how it looks in the camera, no effects were added.  I couldn't be more stoked on how things worked out.
