Ola from Bariloche, Argentina! So this was my first trip to South America! Coming from someone who doesn’t speak any Spanish, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to communicate. I’m thanking myself for going to French immersion, because anytime I has issues ordering food, I would just start speaking french. Its almost the same….actually not really…maybe a few of the same looking words. But it helped regardless.
So, if you’ve been following the blogs, you know that the K2 snowboarding team is down here in Argentina. We’ve been lucky enough to be hosted by the SASS (South American Snow Session) camp, and it has been the trip of a lifetime! Joining us, just two days ago was Leanne Pelosi, along with Shaun Mckay, Eero, Robbie J, Gretchen Bleiler, myslef, Winkel, and the Joel, we have set out to find powder, eat massive amounts of steak, and stack a large amount of lifeys, and product shots. We’ve been shooting on the new products for 2010-2011, and I have to say that the next years graphics are poppin’, and off the chain this year! Here’s a couple shots from my travels…..I can’t release any a grade bangers, but these phots will have to do for now!
The international terminal in LAX, just before jumping on the plane for 20 hours.

Argentinians are known for their love of steak and various meat products

Some times shooting group photos, make the team look like a rock band....Leanne is the lead singer for sure!
Robbie J, traveled from an Australian winter, to a Argentine winter, and now is en route to NZ for more action. Tough life this guy has.
Snowboarding is fun even and well especially in the summer time. Especially at High Cascade Snowboard Camp…and especially at Mt Hood….and especially with the K2 team…and especially when it’s really hot…and especially when you are LIVIN FAST!!!
Heyo from sunny Oregon, k2 house at High Cascade! Just spending some time working on some new tricks, getting old tricks better, and having fun with campers and friends. Tomorrow Christy Chaloux, pro photographer gets to town and we are going to be starting a shoot for Spare Magazine. It’s a euro fashion shoot, so I’m going to try and put together something half fashionable to wear. yeye! It’ll be out next fall/winter. Ok peace out! Going to go for a hike to a cool waterfall soon!
Oh yeah, if you haven’t seen the Hangover, its NUTSO! AMAZING! Best movie of the summer!
