Some of Crispin’s many images
The Deep Winter Photo Challenge is just that, a challenge, not to mention and one hell of a 3 day bender. 5 invited photogs had 3 days to shoot a 4 minute slide show on Whistler Blackcomb. Throw in horribly dangerous snow conditions and rain, and folks we be partying on the bad side of luck. But prevail yee must. Crispin knew he had to come up with something a little unique to get noticed so he turned his efforts to a cinematic angle and crafted a common yet beautiful tale of the average day in the life of a shred dog meeting up with a homie to bust some moves. Crispin’s team consisted David “Nalu” Aubry and Chris Rasman doing the Snowboarding, David Rouleau and Gerhard Gross working as his Photo Assistants and filmaker Benny Stoddard as the Editor. Gerhard also doubled as their lovely model.

…and now for some behind the scenes photos sent in from our favorite behind-the-scenester David Rouleau, thanks dude.
When your hiking a steep slope in nipple-high bottomless powder during a rain shower, you can’t help but feel like Rocky when you reach the top of that shit. Crispin Cannon day 1.
David had verbal diarrhea the whole contest, Rouleau flash whore, photo assistant and color commentator.
Gerhard the actor. The camera ads a chin or two i swear.
Chris “Rasmutant-hungry-balls” Rasman and David ”Nalu” Aubry. I think this was a good choice for riders, a young keen one and an older wise one. Nalu would watch as Chris would send it into rocky flat landings wich earned him the nick name hungry balls. Nalu easy-styled it and picked his battles a little more cautiously, landing clean airs and perfect pow turns and Chris dropped the gnar all contest.
Gross does Rasman. Gerhard dresses up in Rasmutants kit for the non shred shots.
Chris scoping the first shot “is that a rock? i dunno ahh fuck it”
Gerhard says fuck raising the roof i’m raising the bubble bitch….ok that was bad.
Is that a shot? i think thats a shot, its a shot.
Gerhard day 3, feeling the lag.
