"ferns on ferns on Scott down here in Tasmania" SHIFT feature above
I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Athlete & trail builder Scott Thornhill during his recent stint in Tasmania, where I am lucky enough to live and work from. #stokedTAZ to be in Tas"Tasmanian Squamish, Squamania?"
My concept was to create a visual narrative of our ability to shift & change our state of mind through Scott’s riding sequence. Obviously highlighting his broad skillset & abilities on various bikes, so we spent 2 days shooting 1 trail on both trail & dj bike with the vision of linking the two and displaying how it's possible to achieve amazing things when your able to shift your mindset to overcome obstacles or mental barriers, however big or small they might be."Enduro as can be with that enduro knee"In the air or on the ground its always a Lush rush down here in Van Diemansville Getting turnt & blurnt through the trees
Scott was the right guy for the job, his relentless drive, passion, skills & stubborn but laser focused head made this a lot of fun to shoot and produce. It’s not often you get to work with someone who is quite literally willing to put their safety on the line. Someone who attempts things that they don’t believe are possible within themselves, witnessing someone genuinely pushing themselves to the limits of what they set upon themselves & then breaking through them right there in front of you as you document it. Seeing this is infectious (the good kind of infection), it makes you want to try harder, whatever your personally driven to do it makes you want to do more of it, do better, push further, I think its called inspiration.Our incredible hills not far from home in big city Derby town
As Joe Rogan puts it, “find comfort in uncomfortable situations”, this couldn’t be more true. I love working with people like Scott, their energy is contagious & helps me get perspective on what really is possible if you can create a shift in your mindsetJasper & Scott's socials above if you want to follow their journeys
