NEWS: Heavenly Mountain Resort – Behind the Scenes

by Corey Rich


Every photo shoot takes careful thought and planning. Add a helicopter to the mix and that effort doubles. Timing becomes even more critical and clear communication is essential. Once I’m on the ground and look through the set of images, it becomes immediately apparent that it’s well worth the effort.

In the hopes of continually pushing the limits of my work for Heavenly Mountain Resort, my team just pulled together another beautifully executed heli shoot. With the cooperation of Mountain Ops, a seasoned pilot on hold and 12 amazing athletes geared up and ready to rip, we watched the weather, waited for the perfect moment and went for it. We were treated to blue skies above and fresh snow below. The winds picked up later in the morning, forcing an early landing, but not before we captured some amazing images.

You’ll have to wait until next season to see any of the images, but in the mean time, check out this behind the scenes video shot by Heavenly videographer, Dane Henry. A talented eye and a great friend, Dane and I have many opportunities to work together on some great projects. Check out more of his video work on the Heavenly site.
