Winter Event Shoot - Val Thorens, French Alps

My old university club Bath Snowsports invited me to join their annual ski trip to the Alps as their photographer. Conditions were amazing, took a ton of footage and had and amazing time!

Here's a quick video I put together of the event:



This was my first serious video event and I learnt to:

  • CHARGE everything, every night - obvious but crucial
  • Bring plug extensions and correct foreign adaptors - because of all the charging
  • Bring a laptop and hard drives to BACK-UP everything
  • In cold conditions like this have at least three sets of spare BATTERIES
  • Most importantly - PLAN the shoot before hand and know what shots you need to get!

Equipment:
  • Nikon D7000
  • GoPro Hero with waterproof casing
  • Opteka XL Grip
  • Nikon Battery Grip
  • Sandisk Extreme Class 10 SDHC cards
  • Dakine Mission Photo Backpack
