Chase Garvis took this photo during a sunrise photo shoot last year at Snowmass, CO. Myself, Aidan Sheahan, Alex Ferriera and Blake Axelson were shooting for Aspen’s new ad campaign titled “Before Aspen.” Blog about the campaign HERE n HERE. This photo will run in the December, 2012 Photo Annual issue of Freeskier. Chase’s idea for the shoot was to fly the heli above the jump and get a unique perspective shooting down on the riders. He was super excited about the shadows this angle showed. He claimed he got the shot within the first two minutes, but wanted to keep flying around for the next 58 minutes.
