Follow skier Anders Backe through the lens of photographer Vegard Breie as they capture amazing images across Norway this winter.
The BackeBreieTour is first and foremost the story of a friendship of a skier and a photographer who’ve been shooting together for over seven years. “Me and Vegard have shot pretty much everything from park to urban and pow together,” says Anders. “Last year we decided to try something new, and find new spots and features to shoot.” The result is the #BackeBreieTour, which Anders says is “pretty much a season-long photo shoot” with plans to hit several unique locations across Norway.
It’s an interesting take for a project to put the the focus on photography, what with online video and all. For us viewers, it’s a great chance to see some spectacular ski photography online and not just in the pages of the magazines. And if you still need your video fix, have no fear: Field Productions will be along for some of the spots to film for Supervention 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to Supervention scheduled for release in November 2016.
Between the big-time spots, Anders and Vegard will ride some smaller locations, from park to powder, providing regular updates like this one:
“Me and photographer Vegard Breie took a short trip to Geilo to get our BackeBreieTour project going. We got 15cm of fresh pow and grey skies the first day, so playing around in the resort doing pow slashes during the morning hours seemed like a good idea before the park was shaped and ready to go.
They have a set up with two different lines with one kicker line of 2 jumps with a table on around 10m and a rail line with 4 rails with both flat, down, gap to down and rainbow.
And with a short lift you easily get tons of laps and also good lighting that makes room for some visibility even when the days are short here in Norway at this time of year.”
