For the second year running, photographer Jordan Manley has taken the title of “King of Storms” during the annual Deep Winter Photo Challenge. The competition, which is presented by Arc’Teryx, was held last weekend, featuring the work of five professional photographers, who spent 72 hours shooting around Whistler Blackcomb.
“Of course the weather is always a challenge at this time of year, but that is the point after all. It pushed us to be as creative as possible and keep our heads down, plugging away, trying to pull together a compelling show,” Manley said in a recent press release. “I tried to tell the story about not just skiing in Whistler at this time of year, but also about the work that Whistler Blackcomb Ski Patrol has been doing to keep the resort safe during a season when Mother Nature has shown us who’s boss, not just in Whistler, but throughout North America.”
Manley won $3,000, and runners-up Crispin Cannon and Brian Hockenstein walked away with a combined winning of $3,000 for their efforts.
