Last night at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, I joined four other photographers for what amounted to a photographer's version of a dance off. The event, which was sponsored by MTBVT.com, was called the Green Mountain Showdown. Each photographer played a five-minute slideshow of mountain biking images shot in the Green Mountain State between mid July and late August of this year. An eight-person panel judged us on originality, technical excellence, and aesthetic quality.
Bear Cieri took home the first-place trophy, with moody images played to a Tom Waits soundtrack. I was close on his heels in second with shots featuring pro rider Kyle Ebbett, daredevil Josh Gee, and female rippers Ali Zimmer and Kim O'Connell. Check out all five entries below.
