Mt. Hood Photos

Snowboarding pictures are here - of our photographer friend Ziggy's trip to the High Cascade Snowboard Camp Photo Workshop at Mt. Hood, Oregon. Shooting snowboarding photos of pros like Leanne Pelosi, and Camp Manager Preston Strout at snowboarding camp has got to be a cool way to spend some of the hot summer.

Ziggy in da' Hood!

by Ziggy Zygarowski

I went to the High Cascade Snowboard Photo Workshop in Mt. Hood, Oregon this past summer 2004 and was totally stoked to ride and take snowboard photos mid-summer. The class was with 20 other photographers there for the same experience, to learn new photo techniques by top industry photographers as well as the ins/outs of what it takes to become a pro snowboard photographer.

Nothing like being at 8000 feet with sunny 80 degrees days, hanging with pro riders hitting rails, kickers and pipe for 4 days with one sunset/evening shoot (a very rad experience). In the classroom my photos were critiqued by the instructors and later, on the mountain, I put that feedback to work and made each dayıs photos better than the day before. So, yeah, the workshop rocked and I would go back just for a mid-summer snowboard/photo fix.

About Ziggy

I have always had a passion for taking a camera with me wherever I go. Photography for me has been my way to express what, where, and how I view the world. In the past few years my love for photography was re-ignited by way of digital technology. Living in Vermont has brought me closer to outdoor sports and nature,

My passion for shooting snowboarding is due to the variety of tricks and styles I can photograph throughout the year. Terrain parks to city rails, backcountry to lifestyle, mid-winter powder to summer rail shots. There's nothing better than shooting a rider sailing off of a kicker and after they land looking back up the hill and snapping a shot of the sun glistening off the mountain top after a fresh snowfall.

I am constantly pursuing local New England sports and racing action photos. If you know of any type of sports competitions in New England, please email me the info about the event. In my travels I will always continue to shoot nature, wildlife, and other visually stimulating scenes in my path. - Ziggy Adventure Photographer
