Features of the location

The shot was taken in the Indian Himalayas, in the Himachal area Pradesh. In February 2015. Our company Helipro has been organizing skiing in this area for many years. Usually the main season in this region is February-early March. Skiing in the largest mountains of the planet - the Himalayas is an event in itself. Large elevation changes, continental dry snow, variable relief, highlands, alpine meadows. Plus, the unique flavor of India and especially the Manali region.

Technical side

Now I use SONY A7RII, A99II cameras, also LEICA SL and GOPRO 5 BLACK.

Photo trick

In this photo, J.P. makes a frontside turn with a spectacular train on the very first descent of this ride. In a split second, his train will fly into me, falling asleep including the camera. Sometimes for the sake of a good shot you have to make sacrifices (smiles). I love filming turns, especially by people who can do it. Despite the seeming simplicity, not all professional riders do it well.

How to make a photo perfect. Experimenting with angles

Get ready to shoot, have spare batteries and memory cards, keep optics and sensors cleanand. While shooting, try to experiment with camera angles, discuss the planned trick with the rider in advance.
