TR: La Parva, EOTC and Chile!
So it's been a really long time since I posted anything other than a video on here, which is lame -- so I thought I'd post a little photo essay from my recent trip to Chile. Hopefully this provides a moment of stoke, something to get you through the night, because if your at all like me, your counting the days until the snow starts to fall and your local mountain starts spinning its lifts again.
"It's been almost a week since I left Chile and I've only just started to unpack. As I sit here, still unwinding from the intensity of the Eye of the Condor, photo & film competition, hosted by La Parva, I can't help but think I'm holding on to a pipe dream. Maybe I can go back again before the end of their winter? No, I should probably just let it go. As I start to unpack I notice my cloths stink of cigarettes. This may be the only piece of Chilean culture I've inadvertently taken back with me. My pant pocket holds a handful of Chilean Peso's and a folded up "Kamikaze" ticket. A free piscola that got away, but only by accident."
A short photo essay ...
Day 1: Santiago, Chile
After 24 hours of travel I arrived in Santiago, Chile. I was fortunate enough to get almost a full day to hangout and explore the city with new friends Rebecca Selig and Katy-Robin Garton. Fish markets, interesting architecture, river walks and amazing evening lights! One day wasn't enough time to explore such an awesome city.
Day 2: We've arrived, La Parva, Chile for the Eye of the Condor II Film & Photo Competition.
The Eye of the Condor film & photo comp sets the precedent. All competitions should be held to this standard.
Day 3 - 8: We're fully embedded -- Sunset shoots, descents by moonlight, epic meal time and too much PISCO.
Day 4: Epic Sunset Shoot -- Canadian Style -- Photo by Jordan Ingmire
Day 5: Moonlight Ski Descent -- Light Trails -- Photo by Jordan Ingmire
Day 6: One of the awesome parts about being in La Parva was the epic sunsets we had almost every single night. On this early evening we had a particularly spectacular sunset...I took advantage and produced some awesome timelapses.
Story telling, sharing wine, an abundance of laughter and smiles under the stars and above the Santiago lights.
Day 8: Rest.
Day 9: Flash Legs, Champagne, & La Chimenea -- Photos by Jordan Ingmire
Day 10: Last day of shooting...Canadian slash turns, demo team triples & AFROS -- Photos by Jordan Ingmire
Day 11: Pt 1: All good things must come to an end. After an intense week, films and photo portfolio submissions are due, bags are packed and the last of our Pisco is consumed by smiling athletes, photogs and cinematographers. However, the celebration has only just begun. None of us really had any idea what the Eye of the Condor crew had in store for us in Santiago.
Pt 2: Just when we thought we could rest...our transfer arrives and we're off to Santiago, our rooms at the Hyatt, the IF3 Santiago showing of our films/photo portfolios, an amazing dinner and an epic dance party until 530am where pisco flows like the salmon of capistrano. Exhaustion.
Day 12: Taking advantage of late flights -- we set off into the heart of Santiago's downtown!
Until next year!
