It becomes clear pretty quickly that Keegan Rice is both a natural photographer and an experienced snowboarder.
I make that conclusion based on two quotes from this fun little edit: “I think I got addicted to the sound of the shutter,” and also, “All my homies were throwing down.”
Yep! That passes the inspection for “boarder photographer.” More importantly, Rice’s talent gets a well-deserved close-up in this video, made by the always-diverting YouTube channel from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. (Not a shabby place to get some laps in, right?)
Like watching sweaty photographers dangle from big walls in “Free Solo,” it’s thrilling to watch Rice shred the slopes with camera in hand, and see how this sport’s shutterbugs keep up with their subjects. And the results of his stellar photography speak for themselves.
Check it out, snowboarders!
