Adverts for Spyder clothing

Here’s a couple of cool adverts for Spyder clothing, both were shot at Camp Of Champions on the Horstman Glacier here in Whistler this summer. Thanks to Fabia Gruebler,Matt Sterbenz and the 4FRNT crew for arranging the sunset shoot for Matt Hayward (in the yellow suit) and big thanks to the COC park crew for keeping such an imaculate park and pipe. For the Strobists out there, Matt’s shot was lit with an Elinchrom Ranger RX on full power behind the lip of the jump and shot at 1/200 f9.0 iso 100 and 115mm on a 70-200 at about 8:00pm.

Huge thanks to the New Zealand tourist board for helping us out as well as Air New Zealand, it was a truly memorable trip to a beautiful part of this world.
