As part of the Telus World Ski and Snowboard festival in Whistler, photographers from around the world submitted their ski, surf, mountain bike, and skate photos for inclusion in the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown. The finalists were invited to submit a nine minute slideshow, set to music, of the best images from their life's work. These are a few images from the finalists, as well as Blake Jorgenson's winning presentation.
Team DubSatch came out on top in both the photo and video categories at the Eye of the Condor. Against all odds (a young team, a last minute bail by the photog) they put together the best photos and videos of the week. Check them, and the rest of the teams' shots here.
