The latest issue of Whitelines is out! And this month, we’ve got something pretty special for you – a Photo Special. It’s the first we’ve produced for a long time (nearly a decade in fact) and is ram-a-jam full of banger shots from the world’s best snowboard photographers.
But it’s not just about the photo porn, there are a ton of interesting features too. Here’s what’s inside.
urban assault: a gallery of city snowboard shots
This incredible photo is just one of the insane jib shots in our urban gallery… which in turn is just one of the galleries in the January issue. If you’ve got a room that needs decorating, you’ll want to be ripping these out for your wall.
saturation point: has digital photography gone too far?
The digital revolution has had a massive affect on snowboard photography, and the photographers who practise it. While many would say it has improved everything, there are undoubtedly downsides too. We looked at the pros and cons for both pros and ams.
white out, not wash out: riding when it’s snowing
Just because the visibility is bad, doesn’t mean your day needs to be. Inspired by a Jerome Tanon photo essay, Chris Moran considers the joys of riding while the flakes are actually falling.
Matt Georges: in passing
Sometimes the most evocative shots from a snowboard trip are the incidentals, the lifestyle shots, the extras rather than the action. In this photo essay Whitelines’ senior photographer Matt Georges shares some of his favourites from his many years behind the lens.
We review 6 “modern classics” in Decks.
GoPro vs. Contour vs. Drift vs. Ion – we put action cameras to the test
