Go get your dream (shot)!

“My hands are faaaarking cold!!! …but look at this shot” is probably the most used sentence for winter-loving photographers during winter. The adventure and the results outweigh the pain. A little frost bite wont kill you and you’ve locked in some sweet frames on your SD card.

In spite of “cool war marks”… at Vallerret we thought that taking away the frost bite bit would be a nice adjustment to our winter. (Stay tuned here on the blog for updates on glove manufacturing progress)

At Vallerret we celebrate the ambition behind every single photo mission and encourage the adventure. If you want it, make it happen. In life as well as with photography. You probably have a particular shot in mind that you would like to go shoot, but just haven’t gotten around to for some reason.

Team Shooters Carl van den Boom and Lukas Riedl had that particular shot in mind this winter. Being in the Arctic will inspire just about any photographer to chase the northern lights. Carl and Lukas wanted a shot of a snowboarder in motion with the northern lights in the background. Faced with shutter speed dilemmas and hours of waiting for the green lights – they succeeded. Good on ya fellas!

Inspired by our determined Team Shooters, we’d like to load you up with encouragement to go for the mission and keep trucking until you get the shot you want:

  1. Picture it
    Antarctica or the neighbor’s husky, whatever you have in mind.
  2. Plan it
    If planning is required set a day, get the gear ready and get your mates involved and all that jazz. Or preferably go get it right now!
  3. Stick to the plan
    Don’t give in now. If the weather changes, it’ll just be a different mission. We’ve often set out on a mission that ended out being something completely different with some quite unexpected.
  4. Get it!
    Who’s stoked now?

We hope you like our gloves. But more importantly, we hope you’ll go get those crisp shots!

If you liked this post, you’ll love these too!

Winter is no joke! Keep warm and shop our range of Vallerret Photography Gloves.

Covid has dominated the news cycle this year again, while the Climate Change has been quietly sitting in the background, ticking away and getting worse every day. Vallerret Photography Gloves was built around a love of winter.
