Winter X Games
Client: OtterBox Project: ESPN Winter X Games photography
Having a Media badge, VIP badge, and Vendor badge at the ESPN Winter X Games 15 was an amazing opportunity for me. Breezing past the spectators and behind roped off areas was an experience all its own.
I was only packing a Zeiss 16-35mm lens and 135mm f/1.8, which didn’t leave me with as many options as I would have liked, but I had to make the best of them. If I photograph this an event like this in the future, a longer lens between 200-400mm would be ideal. However, the wide angle worked especially well for capturing the enormity of the event and catching the athletes launch over the deck of the SuperPipe, within inches of my face.
