I spent the 2010/2011 winter season in the Canadian Rockies and this short film is the result. I spent the majority of the time in my spiritual home of Fernie, BC with footage also being shot in Red Mountain, Revelstoke and Kicking Horse. Check out the blog posts and photo galleries from the season on my website at RossFairgrieve.com and, if you enjoy the video, I'll love you forever if you "Like" my facebook page at facebook.com/RossFairgrieveDotCom.
As a still photographer, this was my second 'proper' attempt at videography and I like to think that I've learned a thing or two since then. I guess I'll have to prove that next season!
The Music is:
