Brian is a decade-long veteran shooter, with images to prove it. I meant to highlight his work immediately after he took Best in Show and People’s Choice awards at the action-sports-focused “Pro Photographer Showdown” which went down in Whistler, BC a while back, but got a little sidetracked. Regardless, here is the work now. Above are some of my favorite from Brian’s portfolio. Click through the image tabs above – the last one is Brian’s slideshow video from the Pro Photographer Showdown. Spectacular.

Having cut my teeth in action sports photography for nearly a decade before broadening my focus as an artist I can say that capturing these images–images where you’re forced to work with mother nature, in her element, on her timeline–is among the most rewarding work IMHO…but is certainly also the most difficult work one can do. Kudos to you, Brian.

    That first shot is just a “killer” photo. Wow. That is the kind of stuff that keeps me committed to photography. I looked at the other photos and I am always amazed by artist who can turn anything into a photo, like the shot of the snow. Who would have guessed? I think it’s time for me to dwell on my landscape skills after seeing these. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome shots!! Love the action in all of them. First photo has got to be my fave…a difficult capture – and the photographer nailed it. Sweet!

    Amazing stuff, but I suspect that one of Brian’s strongest characteristics is patience. Hate to think how cold his fingers must have been hanging around those freezing beaches waiting for the moment.

    Great set of images!

    One thing though…most Rss readers are only displaying the first image so it is not enitrely obvious there are more too see. I use Google Reader which must be pretty popular and it’s unfortunate that I can’t read the blob post and see all the images without clicking through to the blog.chasejarvis.com site.

    I just did my very first skateboarding photoshoot this weekend and I love it so much, so I can agree with your statement about the rewardingness of shooting these kind of photos :)

    None of these images did anything for me – I’ve seen far better images from other photographers.
