October Print Sale: Part 9!

Hi friends,

Sorry about the radio silence, the day job has been keeping me away from keeping up with the print sale. Which is guess is ok since October is over anyway. I'm going to cut myself some slack and finish strong. I have one last print.

This one has probably sold by the time you read this. There are a couple folks who have been waiting for it and I suspect that it will go fast. I actually rode more days with Craig Kelly than I shot with him and on some level that makes me very happy. We had a day at Mike Wiegles Heli with Ken Ach and friends, an awesome day at Baker with my brother and Alex, and I tagged along on some runs here and there, but this day was the one I remember most. Mostly because my memory sucks and pictures do a better job. I've spoken about this shot a bunch, so I'll leave it at this; watching Craig ride this face was a highlight of my snowboard life. He approached it mostly blind and just flowed down it like water.

This 16 x 24 inch print is on super duper gloss paper. It's all yours for $179 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support my brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart who are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. Please take a moment and click through and lend a hand.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long.

UPDATE: This one sold quick, but there has been enough interest for me to consider a small additional print run. If you are interested, drop me a note before Monday and we can add it on. Same price, same size.

There are still 2 other prints left! Here and here!

THANK YOU!

Dano.

PS: I'm shipping everything today too, so all the folks who are waiting for prints, watch your mailboxes.

October Print Sale: Part 8!

Hi friends,

So the last print only lasted about 5 minutes as well, so here we go again!

In true throwback thursday fashion, we're going back to 1997 or so with Marc Morisset. Back in those days we spent as much time in helicopters as we did on snowmobiles. The morning we shot this there was a classic valley fog layer, but up above the sky was blue giving us the sea of clouds that you see in Whistler so often.

This 20 x 30 inch print is on super duper gloss paper and these little jpegs do not do it justice. It's all yours for $189 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support my brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart who are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. Please take a moment and click through and lend a hand.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long.

THANK YOU!

Here's another shot from the same morning. KY was there and I think sluggo? Or maybe Roan? or both?

October Print Sale: Part 7!

Hi friends,

What a week. Your response has been amazing and I am super appreciative. A couple of the prints went from posting to payment in less than 5 minutes. It's totally remarkable. Thank you sincerely. We just keep stacking up the donations.

This evening i have a shat that I absolutely love. It's Matt Beardmore from Revelstoke Mountain Resort. He dropped the best looking diving board I'd ever seen and put his board right onto the micro transition. The whole scene was right at the fog line so the air was full of suspended crystals. I'll always remember it.

October Print Sale: Part 6!


Hi Friends,

Can anyone say MADS JONSSON!!! What a charger. So versatile, such a powerful rider. Always a pleasure to shoot and to hang out with. This shot is from Northern Escape Heli. It's from an awesome zone that has a fluted face right next to an opposing ridge line giving access to shots that in Alaska would be impossible to get in most cases.

This print is a MASSIVE 20 x 30 inches on super duper gloss paper and it's simply beautiful Black and White with a slight tone. It's all yours for $189 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support my brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart who are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. Please take a moment and click through and lend a hand.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long. There are still a couple available here and here.

Thanks for dropping by folks!

October Print Sale: Part 5!

Hi Friends,

First of all, thanks so much for buying these things. It's really making me stoked and every little thing that goes towards helping my friend and family deal with the costs that come with fighting cancer, helps.

I LOVE this photo of Mark Landvik. This was shot in a remote zone in the Kootenays while filming with Standard Films. We spent a couple years exploring this zone without anyone else ever putting another track on it and I literally spent a week shooting within 100 yards of this. The pillow field of all pillow fields. Totally perfect. And what better than a Lando method to complete the picture. I think it's a perfect little snowboard scene.

This print is appropriately sized at 16 x 24 inches on super gloss paper made from high tech molecules. It's all yours for $179 plus actual shipping.

UPDATE: the 16 x 24 has a new owner but I have a MASSIVE 20" x 30" print that is available for ten bucks more. $189. Hit me up!

Second update: both sold!

October Print Sale: Part 4!

Hi friends,

If you've ever met Chris Dufficy and not been moved to become a better person you may have a missing gene. Simply put, he's one of the greatest humans ever to strap into a snowboard. In 2001 we were filming a little movie called True Life for a now defunct snowboard company called Forum. It was the best. Great crew, great riding, good times.

This shot is from a zone called Face Mountain on the hurley river road. We pioneered a lot of new zones in those days and as a result there was a lot of time when we'd be the only crew in an area. Face was like that for a long time.

This print is perfectly sized at 16 x 20 inches on super gloss paper made from butterfly wings. It's all yours for $179 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support friends and family in my life who are battling cancer. My brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. If you don't need a photo for your wall, click through and help them out anyway.

October Print Sale: Part 3!

Hi Friends,

Here we ago again with another well-loved shot of Lukas Huffman! All the Kootenay noboard posse know where this one is taken, but I'll never tell. Let's just say it's in part of British Columbia's massive backcountry playground. In 2006 I spent a couple weeks traveling around BC with Lukas and crew filming for his IR77 project. I have great memories of that trip and some classic images. This shot is a testimony to simple lighting and perseverance, there was a lot of slogging gear through deep snow to make it work.

This print is a MASSIVE 20 x 30 inches on super duper gloss paper and it's simply beautiful. It's all yours for $189 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support friends and family in my life who are battling cancer. My brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver.

October Print Sale: Part 2!

Hi Friends,

I learned this week that if you have a really busy schedule at work, you maybe should think twice about launching a print sale. So the entries have not been as hot and heavy as I would have liked, but here we are with part 2. I'm going to stockpile some posts today so I will have more prints this week.

Another thing I learned this week is that my old friend Chris Brunkhart has been diagnosed with the exact same form of Cancer that my brother has. It's been 2 years since cancer stuck its unwelcome little head into my brother's life and the impact that it has had is impossible to understate. Garry continues to undergo chemotherapy every two weeks. It takes away much of his freedom and his ability to work. He has faced this business with strength and dignity and a positive attitude, but it's a hard road.

So, from this point forward, for every print we sell, I'm donating 20 bucks to Brunkhart's fundraising drive and $20 to my brother's (through paypal, use gpendygr@hotmail.com). It's not a lot, but everything helps. If you don't particularly like my pictures but you fucking hate Cancer, feel free to donate directly. Chris is in for a fight and he'll need the support.

So, on to the print! This is one of my most well-known shots. Lukas Huffman on the legendary "Perfect Jump" in the Whistler backcountry from 2003. It has run in a couple different magazines over the years and of all the photos people ask about, this one is probably top of the list. I was trying to find a new angle on this heavily documented feature when I saw the shadow of the riders racing through the foreground. I moved in and set up with a wide lens and caught the shadow.

This one is 16"x24" on some super gloss paper and it's yours for $179 (plus actual shipping costs.)

First email in my inbox gets it.

Thanks for dropping by. More prints all week long! Check out another one here.

Update: This sucker is sold.

October Print Sale!

Hi friends,

Christmas is coming and you know what that means! I need room in my house for all the presents I'm going to get! Speaking of presents, here's an idea for all the snowboarders in your life: how about a gallery quality print for the wall?

I have a few prints left from various sales over the years. I need the room and you need the images, so I'm going to put them up, one at a time, until they sell. First come, first to get that bad boy. Most of these are an edition of 1. Some of them may never be printed again.

So let's start here: Mark Landvik getting a fresh slasher while filming with Standard Films back in 2005. Mark is on my top 5 list of people that I shot with over the years and this was the first day we worked together. The photo ran in Transworld Snowboarding Magazine and was the image I chose to promote a gallery show at the Blake Jorgensen Gallery way back when. When it came time to hang the show, there wasn't enough room for this image so it has stayed in the tube ever since!

This one is 16"x24" on some super gloss paper and should bring you years of joy. It's obviously a bargain at $179 (plus actual shipping costs.)

First email in my inbox and prompt payment gets it. No tire kickers, no deadbeats.

As soon as it sells, I'm putting up the next one. And I'll keep doing it until they're all gone. There are some great images coming so stay tuned!

Happy Thanksgiving Canucks!

D.

September Wallpaper -Canvas

Hi friends,

I was so stoked on the response to the free wallpaper calendar that we did this month that I decided to go ahead and offer it up as a 36x24 inch canvas! First of all I had to order one myself to make sure that it was going to be up to a high enough standard for all of you all. It looks even better than I imagined so I’m very proud to bring it to you now.

I made a sales page up HERE so take a look and remember, Christmas is coming soon!

Here is how it looks on my wall:



And this is the original image.
