Category: New Creativity Category Finalist Credits: Photographer: Jussi Grznar Athlete: Anto Chamberland Location: Montreal, QC , Canada Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Lens: EF85mm f/1.8 USM ISO: 100 F-Stop: 14.0 Shutter Speed: 1/200 Flash Systems: Elinchrom, Paul C. Buff "I'll be chasing that 'next great photo' for the rest of my life." Biography: It all started back in Slovakia (the former Czechoslovakia) at the age of three when my dad strapped a pair of skis to my feet and pushed me down the local hill. From that day on, I pretty much skied every winter until I was about 17 and got my first snowboard. After making the switch to snowboarding, I would then spend my summers parking cars for luxury hotels and my winters coaching snowboarding.After finishing college I moved to NYC to embark on a hotel management internship. That's when I used to steal my roommate's camera and shoot random photos around the city. Halfway through the internship I went to TGR's "High Life" premiere. The movie just blew my mind, so two weeks later I packed my stuff and moved to Whistler, BC. After the first season in Whistler, I joined a few of my buddies on their surf trip down to Mexico. With the first camera I'd ever owned, a Canon 350D and one lens, I documented the trip and sent a few photos to Mat Rendek, the editor of Boardlife. He loved the photos and we ended up getting a 12-page story published from that trip. That was the beginning of it all. Nowadays, I am a senior photographer at Snowboard Canada Magazine. I've worked for a number of great clients, crews and magazines all over the world and I'll be chasing that "next great photo" for the rest of my life. The Shot: I shot this photo in January 2013 with Anto Chamberland, Jody Wachniak, Matt Belzile and Mathieu Gibeault during my annual trip to Quebec. Anto was filming his video segment for the Stairmasters contest and looking for "something big" to finish his part off. Mathieu, Anto's cinemato - Thursday 3rd January 2013 (1 image)
