Ed Blomfield

Former editor-in-chief Ed Blomfield caught the snowboard bug at a young age – brought up in Yorkshire, he witnessed the Pennine dryslope scene in its 90's heyday and once earned detention at school for dying his hair blonde in an ill-advised tribute to Jamie Lynn. In 2005, after three seasons in Tignes and four years studying English/chasing the snow in Scotland, Ed took the reins at the UK's finest snowboard mag. 13 years later, Ed left his full time role at Whitelines to spend more time behind the lens, shooting in the mountains over the winter and spending the sunnier months working as a wedding photographer in Cornwall.
