NO. I have had way to many sketchy companies try to rip off my low-res files off of the net. So I no-longer release high-res files untill I have a signed contract for the exact use. I.E. I am dealing with a copyright theft issue with the number 2 energy drink (in sales behind redbull) company in the world at the moment.

HOWEVER, I do ocasionally sell custome prints at very reasonable prices. If you are interested in a shot, send me a pm, tell me wich image and what size.

I only post images on the net after they have been published a few times. Almost all of my images are shot on contract so I cant post them until after the client uses them.

Glad you guys like the pics. Just figured a little stoke could help the place out.

Amazing shots, locations, and skills. I can taste that powder.

Wow, Grant. Thanks for the great shots. I was just thinking about you and wondering if you were still posting here. It's great to see you around and keep the pictures coming. Maybe you'd like to contribute a few for the 'front page' of Epic?

Impressive photography -- but that's what we should expect from such a pro!

As an interested amatuer photog, I'm begging your indulgence on a couple of technique issues -- particularly how you got the skier in these backlight conditions to be so well exposed? Did you composte two images, exposing the skier for his highlights, or ? I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks, but no thanks. That is a bit too much visibility for images that I can still sell.

Shooting two seperate images and then blending the exposure is photoshop is cheating if you ask me. Plus it wont work for action photography since the skier would be in two completly different spots, since he is moving. Finally these images where shot on film so, there difenatly not an exposure blend.

I acheive the exposure by very carefully metering the highlights and shadow ares with an incedent light meter. Than, knowning the exposure latitude that the film is capable of I set my exposure accordingly. Thats a kind of round about answer, but I will tell you this: Snow is an excellent natrual reflector, so it makes it eaiser to keep detail in the shadows than say mtn bike images.

Hopefully that helps.

Do you have a web site to look at some of your photos for offering?

The quality of the shots is very worthy for a frame . Maybe also shots of lines without skiers are available also?

Notreally. I havent updated my site for at least 3, maybe for years. If you are interested in some images send me a PM with what you are looking for and I will let you know if I have anything that might fit the bill.

Stoked that you guys liked the pics. Maybe I'll post a few more in couple of months.

Also for those of you that sent me PM's about custome prints, you should now have a reply. If for some reason I missed your message, PM me again.

Thanks,
Grant.

Just under the rope in the Mt. Baker Ski Area backcountry, on the worst snow year on record.
