“I had the extreme pleasure of shooting World Champion and now Olympic Gold Medalist Marielle Thompson while backcountry skiing for a Nikon Canada shoot and then later a fashion shoot with her at my studio.  Marielle transformed in front of the camera and we ended up getting some amazing shots of her and her crystal globe!  A HUGE congratulations on your well deserved Olympic Gold in Sochi Marielle.  Looks like we have a new medal to shoot you with!!  Way to go!!!!!”

 

Congratulations Marielle on your Ski Cross Gold Medal in Sochi

When on a photo/video shoot for Nikon Canada called One Camera Two Perspectives, I had the opportunity to work with Marielle Thompson and her boyfriend and fellow Ski Cross Champion Tristan Tafel out in the backcountry for a ski shoot.  It was a crazy snow day, really tough wet conditions to shoot in but amazing deep snow. We had snowmobiles to tow the athletes around, had a blast and got some great shots!!

After the shoot I had Marielle and Tristan come to my studio for a what was to be a quick fashion shoot…. but as we started to get creative it evolved into something much more amazing.  I loved shooting Marielle with her Crystal Globe trophy and we co-created some really fun ideas.   One of which was to have Marielle’s trophy reflect into her sunglasses as if she was peering into her Crystal Globe.  We used a purple and blue coloured gels on my lights to enhance the effect.  Tristan brought out some antique skiis and poles which made great props as well.   I have included a few of my favs of Marielle in this post!!
