Outdoor Product Photography Project

The stoke was high as two exceptional athletes, Whitney and Thomas, committed to joining me on an outdoor product photography venture. Renowned as adept ski guides with a wealth of backcountry expertise, their enthusiasm set the stage for a dynamic collaboration.

We met at the trailhead at dawn. The thermometer plunged to a bone-chilling 0°F – a frigid backdrop that perfectly aligned with the focus of our shoot: heated gloves and base layers. Alas, the photographer, found himself without the comforting embrace of the heated clothing.

Slow wins the race

In outdoor product photography, the challenges are as unpredictable as the elements themselves. Unlike the controlled environment of a studio, the team was totally dependent on the weather. Thorough preparation was key – weather forecasting and cloud coverage is one of those things on the list. High cirrus clouds graced the sky, giving it texture and diffusing the morning light, especially after the clock struck 10 am.

We didn't end up going too far that morning, it was a slow paced environment with focus on the small details capturing nuanced shots that would seamlessly align with the company's vision. As I reflect back, I recognize that sometimes, in the pursuit of the perfect shot, it's the slow, deliberate approach that triumphs. I the snow shredding will be next time!
