For the past ten years, SKI Magazine's Director of Photography Keri Bascetta has worked hard in the studio and on mountainsides all over the world to capture many of the stunning photos you see in our magazine and on our website. Keri is normally pretty quiet, but she stepped into the limelight for this short film from KGB Productions that provides a look at what it takes to have this title. We're super thankful to have her working hard around the office and in the field everyday, and this short video is a great testament to the incredible amount of work she puts in to get each amazing shot.

Presented by Flylow, the Westward Series looks into the lives of influencers in the ski industry that work too hard to garner much attention. Now it it's third season, you can find out more about the series and see more episodes on the Westward landing page.

FLYING HIGH With the fog-shrouded Alps as his backdrop, Italian pro freeskier Christof Schenk catches big air off a kicker built for the Fabian Bösch Invitational late last spring on the Titlis Glacier near Engelberg, Switzerland. The FBI was conceived by Engelberg native Bösch, an X Games Aspen big-air gold medalist, after a long season sidelined due to a heel bruise. He convened some of the top names in freeskiing for the less-thanformal get-together. Oskar Enander caught this shot. “I had just got home from Bali, Indonesia, that morning but knew the weather was good and an evening session was planned,” he says. “I went up on the mountain around 4 p.m. and got this image just after 8 p.m.” Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens @ f/5.6, 1/1250sec, ISO 160
