Exposure Contest Winning Photographs

Thanks to everybody who made the effort to browse through the Snowboard Magazine photo entries and cast a vote for those special images. My abstract image of a park jump at Keystone Resort in Colorado was tagged as an Honorable Mention, stoked on that! Until next year’s contest announcement, thanks again y’all! You can see all the winning photographs HERE. Blotto

Prime Mixtape

Prime Snowboarding asked for a current playlist from the vinyl collection in Basement Jamz, so I offered up these tracks you can listen to through the modern marvel of digital transmission in their write up HERE. In addition, a nice plug on the Blotto X Family Tree collection along with the Blotto X Declan collaboration. Check it out! Thanks for reading and listening, Blotto

Black Eye Twister and Travel Kit

Received a couple of units yesterday from the Black Eye Lens squad, the Twister Super Fisheye Lens and the Pro Kit, both look really cool! The Twister is an iPhone case with a screw on fisheye lens, super easy, super convenient, see more information HERE. The Travel Kit features three lenses secured inside a nice leather case, exactly what I need for the bumps and lumps of traveling with planes, trains and automobiles. Hit up Black Eye products HERE to progress your smartphone filming and photo game! Blotto

Black Eye Lenses x EyeEm

A few weeks ago I did a BLOG POST about my trusty iPhone clip on lenses produced by the good crew at Black Eye, they’ve now teamed up with the gang at EyeEm for a Snow Sports photo mission. I have long taken part in EyeEm’s photography and social media community so it’s good to see these two get together and offer up some product for the simple task of taking pictures and posting them, good stuff!

If you haven’t participated in EyeEm’s social media network, hit them up HERE for a look around, lots to see and do. You can view my page HERE, and once you register and start posting click the Photo Mission tab and submit, easy. Blotto
