Despite all the rapid development and heartache associated with photography's switch from analog to digital, the feeling you get watching a well thought-out slideshow has never gone away. The Pro Photographer Showdown, part of the World Ski & Snowboard Festival in Whistler, BC each April is a celebration of just that, every year bringing five of the top action shooters in the world in to battle for the title and large cash prize.
This past year, Vancouver-based Scott Serfas, a big-time player in the snowboard photography scene, as well as a Transworld Snowboarding Magazine staff photographer, threw his name into the hat and put together an incredible slideshow. In this short video, we go behind the thought-process that goes into a show like this from one of the most impressive guys in the game.
This is a great little piece and I have to say thanks to Scott and whoever else had a hand in it for sharing.
As a side note: notice Scott's wall of covers above his desk. Impressive to say the least.
Added extreme-super-amazing-kinda-incredible bonus? Here's the full show including some of the best snowboard, surf and skate images ever shot:
