Every Monday I show a travel photo from some of my journeys around the world including local spots in Australia like Darwin, Townsville, Brisbane and Alice Springs to overseas like Japan, London, Budapest, California, Vienna and the Netherlands.
Today we head off to Niseko, Japan. In o8′ I left Australia to head off to explore the world. We thought it was a great oppotunity to celebrate that and head to Japan and go snowboarding for 2 weeks before I said goodbye to my mates then heading to Europe and England. Snowboard photography is one of the hardest forms of photography. Getting your gear up the mountain on your back, setting up flashes and getting a good shot is extremely hard. I found it very challenging compared to my normal rollerblading. With some long shots, even changing your flash power can be a mission if your in powder. Trekking back up just to increase a flash can take up to 15 minutes. Well I thought I’d take to opportunity to get some photos on one day I was there and here’s one of the best. Here’s my mate Snaz popping off a barrel.
