Photographer & Director Tyler Stableford continues his personal project The Athlete Series, with a shoot photographing ski racers with the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club (AVSC). His goal was to capture a singular and unique ski racing shot, in a way that he hadn’t seen done before: shooting at dusk at the apex of the skier’s arc around the gate, using high-speed strobes.
This photo features AJ Chabot racing the Super G course at Aspen Highlands.
AJ was one of the athletes who kindly did multiple laps for our shoot into the evening; AJ is a 19-year-old skier competing with AVSC on his gap year before starting a Division 1 ski racing program at college next year.
