I’d be surprised if you have not heard of Chris Burkard, but I’m stoked if you haven’t and I can point you towards him. With a massive social media following and pioneer of the typical inspirational adventure shot (think feet sticking out of an open tent with a view) he has dedicated most awake hours to travel and adventure through self-taught photography. His cold climate surfing is what he is really known for and the side of his photography that is truly outstanding. Combing landscape photography and action sports in these uninviting environments, his influence and social media fame are unquestionably deserved.
Norwegian Action sports and landscape photographer out of the Norwegian capital, Oslo. Emil Sollie has turbo-ed into small fame in the past year or so, he has similarities to Chris Burkard but definitely has is his own twist and style. Using the night landscapes and powerful flashes to capture the action, Emil inspires creative thinking by picking apart an action shot and re-designing it with his own lighting set up.
Making a career from snowboard photography I have added Jerome into the mix here for his artistic approach. Shooting stills with film and processing them in unique ways, he is inspirational in taking the traditional and breaking the boundaries.
As a former pro snowboarder Tom is no stranger to hiking the peaks, now he does it for sunrise and sunset to catch the golden light and the epic views.
We follow Tom for the inspiration to put in the extra yards, because the shot from the top is worth the early mornings and cold nights.
