Kurt Scott

PUBLISHED: CORRIDOR MAGAZINE

I am pretty stoked to be able to share this post today. Several of my images were published in (and on the cover of!) the December 2011 issue of Corridor Magazine, an Arts & Culture publication that covers Western Montana. The photos were used to illustrate a story on Snowbowl Ski Area turning 50 years old this year. While I am very happy with how the images look - and how BIG they ran - I am especially pleased with how the cover came out. This particular drop and the chute below it are roped off during the regular season, and thus only available (legally) after the mountain has closed ... if there is enough snow. It's great to see that this unique image caught the eye of the art director at Corridor. With a new winter upon us the timing of this article couldn't have been better, as i am now extra fired up to get out and experience more days like this one.

Many thanks to the fellas for allowing me to shoot these photos when the powder was calling our names. Ross Peterson (cover and inset on first spread), Chris Bacon (first spread-left side), and Kurt Scott (B&W full spread).

 

PUBLISHED: GVSA CALENDAR

Pretty stoked to share this today.  I just received a package in the mail from a buddy in Bozeman who has been working with the Gallatin Valley Skatepark Association (GVSA) for a while.  The GVSA is the organization trying to get a bigger, better, awesomer skatepark built in Bozeman. One of their fundraising efforts was has been to produce a 2011 calendar full of shots of (mostly) local skaters, bikers, shredders, skiers, etc. taken by (mostly) local photographers.  I was excited when Brian Koenig asked if I wanted to be involved, and I am even more excited to see the finished result. The GVSA used my shot of Kurt Scott riding the Montana sign in the Bitterroot Valley for September. I am proud to be amongst such other great photogs like Dan Armstrong, Derik Olsen, Reid Morth to name a few. I am perhaps even more proud to now be able to call Kurt by his rightful title...Mr. September.
