Before moving to Jackson, Wyoming, outdoor photographer Stephen Shelesky struggled with his sexuality and identity. It was only when he moved out west that he began to truly accept himself, become part of a supportive community, and hone his craft in one of the best ski towns in the country. Out West, directed by Susie Theis and produced by Shelesky and Sofia Jaramillo, shares his story. The film features colorful smoke bombs from Shutter Bombs that bring a rainbow to the slopes.
