… If I think of the definition of sports photos, I define it as the freezing of an athletic movement at its best. It’s at this point that most people lose, or don’t really consider, what it means to photograph an “athletic movement at its best.” The commitment begins with the choice of the spot, and if it can propose a workable starting point for practicing a trick worthy of note, you start thinking about the light position, and, probably after days or months, to the choice of the ideal weather and snow conditions. This doesn’t depend on the will of the photographer and even athletes, so you live in constant expectation of the arrival of generic perfect condition! If you can get to this point, the real work begins! The climb, which is not always facilitated by snowmobiles, the positioning of lights and photographic equipment, the trials, leading to long waits often immersed in deep snow, meters high. All efforts are paid, not with the final picture, but from what the mountain and the situation has been able to give back: the muffled silence, the sound of animals hidden behind some rock covered with snow, the solitude in a natural silence, already noisy in our ear saturated by artificial and underground noises …
A necessary clarification: the images below are adapted to the layout of the website, so they may differ in cut and quality to the original photographs.
