Andrew Strain's Slide Show from the 2011 Deep Winter Photo Challenge | 3rd Place

By

Last January an oversold crowd packed the Fairmont Chateau Whistler to watch six pro photographers battle it out for the sought-after deep winter title, “The King of Storms”. In the end Blake Jorgenson took home the title, Robin O’Neill came in second and underdog Andrew Strain rounded out the podium in third. (Andrew just released his slideshow to the public after a year of password/select only viewing privileges on Vimeo. We hope you enjoy)

A message from Andrew’s blog:

It’s been almost a year since I managed to steal third prize in Whistler Blackcomb’s Deep Winter Photo Challenge. Today, I was out on the mountain scouting some stuff with Jussi Grznar, who is making his own run for the title of “King of Storms” next week, bringing back all kinds of wonderful memories like shooting in such heavy snowfall that my camera completely iced over. Or, sitting in the Glacier Creek bathroom for an hour trying to de-fog my lenses with a hand dryer (a more detailed re-cap here). -To see the full post visit www.andrewstrain.com 

Thanks to Twitter and other social networking methods the 2011 Deep Winter Photo Challenge was all over the internet. You can expect the same volume of tweets (#deepwinter) for the comp this year.  The big show takes place at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler on January 14th! For tickets* go to www.deepwinterphoto.com
