What the Aussie pro’s are rockin’

Ryan Tiene corks out a frontside 5 on the gap jump, Style Wars, Falls Creek, Australia

This past August while shooting one of the bigger snowboard competitions on the Australian calendar, Style Wars, I decided it would be fun to shoot photos of the other photographers.It was one of those events where I knew only a couple of my shots would get a run in the magazine, and it was also the first comp I had covered in that season where I wasn’t being paid to shoot for the event organisers or sponsors, So I decided to have a bit of fun and shoot the other guys shooting!

Here are a few shots from the three day event.

  • Dude, nice pics but you really need to get some spam protection for your comments section, i don’t think missouri health insurance really did have a good time reading this ;)

  • Thanks Matt. I haven’t had much time to moderate the comments section lately, and you’re right I do need to get some better spam protection, It’s getting unbearable! Thanks for picking it up though, you motivated me to go through and clean out the garbage comments! Cheers.
