Aomori Spring Media Shoot 2018

Pro Athlete Photography and Filming

As part of an on-going relationship with Aomori Spring in Japan, we spent the first two weeks of February 2018 on a contracted shoot at the resort, working with numerous professional freeskiers and snowboarders.

With the 2018 Winter Olympics being within one short flight from Aomori Airport, a number of teams chose Aomori Spring as their pre-Olympic “wellness” camp location. This included the Finnish and German Snowboard Teams, the US Freeski Halfpipe Team and a few other American athletes like Louie Vito and Chloe Kim.

With so much talent riding at the resort at the same time, Aomori Spring’s management chose to enlist our services to shoot on-spec action photography and videography with the available athletes. We also shot portraits of every visiting athlete to be printed and hung in the lobby at the Rockwood Hotel.

The majority of digitally published content was used throughout both the resort’s and athlete’s social media streams, with a big focus on Instagram. As a result, most of the produced edits were less than one minute in length, with the exception of the video below.
