December 2nd - 6th, 2015
Once again, the time has come for the worlds best technical and speed skiers to arrive in Beaver Creek, Colorado and face the challenging Birds of Prey World Cup race course. I was fortunate enough to shoot this event for the Vail Daily and watch as my favorite Norwegian downhiller Aksel Lund Svindel conquered the speed race taking home a gold and his third consecutive World Cup win.
Check out the gallery of published images for the Vail Daily that I captured during the five days of Beaver Creek ski racing which included the downhill, super-G, giant slalom, and two days of downhill training.
While on assignment for the Vail Daily on July 25, 2014, I received a hot tip that Marine Corporal Jason Hallett, while visiting the Vail Valley with the Vail Veterans Wounded Warriors program, popped the question to his childhood girlfriend Rachel MacVean the previous night. They decided to do the deed the next day at the Eagle County court house. When the community heard this they would not have it be so simple and rallied to put on a magical ceremony at the Sonnenalp Hotel along side the beautiful Gore Creek. Here are the photos of the impromptu Hallett wedding.
