Stevens Pass Session Day 2 and 3: Bring in the Bird

Things have been going well. We got one of our main jumps dialed in and got a solid session on it.  We were able to bring in the heli and get some really good shots. Classic Washington, you never know what the weather is going to do.  A typical day is a mix of sun, clouds, rain,  more sun, some snow, etc. The crew at Stevens Pass has been amazing to work with. During footage review Brian Stanford, who is the Stevens Pass Park Manager, showed me some photos he took with his point and shoot. They were so sick I asked if he could email them to me, so I could put them up on the site. My camera assistant and P2 shooter Josh Brom also crushed some great stills. It is tough to get photos when you are shooting motion footage out of the bird, so these guys were key in making this happen. As always these projects are full team efforts.

Here he is setting up to crush multiple formats of madness. photo: Josh Brom**
