For the past 12 years, Whistler has played host to the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival, and an integral part of that has grown to be the Pro Photographer Showdown. From their website, "As the pre-eminent action sports photography contest in the world, the Pro Photographer Showdown celebrates still images and the commitment required to build a body of work that captures time and captivates the human spirit."
From the outset of my photography career I had dreamt of entering the event, and last year that is what happened. My show was ultimately voted winner by the panel of judges, to my surprise. It was a really amazing moment and my hat is off to the other photographers who all had amazing shows as well.
