Coast Mountain Photography has been the official photography company for Whistler Blackcomb for over 15 years. Three years ago, we decided to expand our business to include photographing the downhill mountain biking scene in Whistler, BC. The program started off with myself shooting a few different trails on the weekends. I'd pick a spot, usually a jump and photograph everyone who hit it. Images would then be uploaded for viewing and purchase online that evening. Within a few weeks, the word spread, and the program became a full time job. All riders, not just the pros, were now able to get great photographs doing what they loved.
Today, Coast Mountain Photography has a team of shooters who are in the park 7 days a week. We photograph on the trails daily as well as offering private action shoots, videos and cover events like Crankworx and WB's annual Crud2Mud race. We're out there getting shots of everyone on trails like Easy Does It and Crank it Up to ALine and In Deep.
So next time you're out ripping in the Whistler Bike Park and see a flash fire as you hit a jump, speed through a berm or bounce through a tech section, it was probably Coast Mountain Photography capturing you doing what you love the most.
