Assisting – 2010 Olympics

So I signed up about 2 years ago to be up on Cypress Mountain as a Photo Assistant and now my time has come. I had my first shift and it was sweet. I spent a majority of my day on the halfpipe getting it ready for the photographers from Getty, Reuters, Sports Illustrated and other news sources. Here’s a shot of what it ended up looking like in the end.

See those blue fences on either side? That’s my masterpiece myself and a ton of other assistants lugged 54 pieces of fence up either side. After we were all done with that I was able to go up and supervise the halfpipe training where as you can see I got a little up close and personal with a man named Shaun White.

For those of you who don’t know of him he is the top Snowboarder in the world. He’s sponsored by Burton and Redbull. Redbull actually went and built him his own halfpipe in Colorado at a super secret location to practice for the 2010 Olympics.Overall a sweet freaking day.
