Congrats to highrevs (real this time)!

This one is real, folks -- highrevs got a whole series of photos published in the latest Decline: of this year's Collegiate Nationals at Snowshoe. Way to go, highrevs! The (real, not Photoshopped - - and with apologies for the spotty quality) evidence:








BTW, highrevs, there is also at least one photo by Sterling Lorence in this issue - - didn't I tell you that one day you'd be rubbing elbows (even if it is figuratively) with the likes of him?

Thanks guys!! Honestly this one still feels sort of surreal. A five page spread in Decline magazine is my biggest photography accomplishment (by far) and one heck of a motivator. I was pretty stoked to find out this is a first time the collegiate Nationals was covered for Decline. Scott Hart, editor and chief of Decline, was a former collegiate racer and was pretty excited to the have the article run in the mag. I’ll be stoked on this one for a while.

Again thanks for the support guys!!!

You did say something along those lines... and seeing my name printed next to his feels pretty dang cool.




Here are a couple of other images that did not make it to print, but i really liked them.
