Default Mag/place to share my photos?

Hi all.

I've recently returned from a trip to Khakassia, thats in a Siberia. I was about right here: Khakassia
Google map screenshot:


Yep, that's pretty far away from civilizaton, there's only 300-400 ppl in a village. I was doing a photoshoots for a company that organized a cat skiing service there. There's interesting mountains, and tons of a fresh powder. Fields, steeps, and forests. That was really fun to ride and really interesting experienceю

Now as my work is done and I'm sitting at my home with a coffee. I got an idea of posting an article or a blogging about it. The main question: where?
What is the best option to post a nice article about freeriding in scary Siberia?

I got a contact with Tom Copsey long time ago, even before I started to shoot snowboarding, but I cannot find his email. If you got it - please let me know.

You can ask: heh, guy from a Kazakhstan(know where is it?) looking for a place to post his shots? May be first share something and erase all the gigs?
Ok, here's some:

View on the village. There was a gold mines nearby and you can spot some traces of it while riding. No minig done after 1990x.


The only way to get to the top. I've done a snowshoeing one day, but that's way better.


Sad Girl. She lost her Dupraz D1 board somewhere.


Ripping tons a freshy powder. That guys on shots are about 40 y.o.




Proper tools. Guess which is mine?


Some landscapes on my way back:


Well, that's only a small part of a shots I made there. Originally they're in really good photo quality, for sure.

Let me know, if you got any ideas. Feel free to contact me via PM or to kovyrshin -a-t- google mail.

I opened that image in a separate window to see it larger. It looks like it has a forward angle stance on it, just like the 2 of the other 3 boards. What specifically do you see as odd about it? I thought that was a common stance on POW decks, No?

I'm only curious cuz I don't really know.

(...it isn't readily apparent in the small thumbnail pic tho.)

What's wrong with it?

Well, there's nothing wrong with it, except that it set up with a really big and non-necessary bet back. I don't know whether this guy was riding a swallowtail for a 1st time or not, but his nose was all the time in the air. This resulted in a constant crashes. Like that:



I've tried swallows for a 1st time there and it damn fun!

ps. Looks like image hoster resized images waay to down

Maybe cause it's the most normal lookin' stance out of the four, that somehow its normality has created an optical illusion, making it look out of place

I think that Argo maybe thought that the bindings were pointed backward, because at first glance the heelcups aren't real visible and it almost looks like the backs of the binders are the fronts. Then of course you see them straps and it all makes sense.

Two boards on the right have 45/30 stance. Which works perfect for swallow.
Like this:


Black U198 is mine, so not much shots of mysellf.

Stance on APO(second from a left, red binders) is really werid: almost a duck stance. This is ok when you're riding a park stick, but now a stiffer swallow. That guy looked pretty awkward on all the shots.
Stance one a white prior was really set to the back. It looks like there's no need to set you stance back like that. Swallowtails makes all that magic with a centered stance. On a winterstick I need to set my binders forward(!!) to get a perfect balance.

Ok! Thanks. That's why I dbl clicked it in first place cuz thumb was so small I couldn't tell. Also, still newb enough that I wasn't 100% sure if that was a fairly common stance on POW decks in general or swallowtails specifically.

(...I am aware that it's the preferred angles for hard booted, Euro carvers tho, right? )


-edit-
Lol! Read Kilz reply and realized I should apologize for the "Thread Jack!"
To the OP, Sorry! Mia Culpa! (...cool pics too! Sounds like an awesome experience!)

TGR forums is where you want to start if you are looking for recognition. Be warned, they can be harsh over there, but if you make it through good things can happen. There is at least more than one person who has become a professional snow sports photographer, because in large part of what they contributed on TGR. The industry watches that forum and takes notice if there is quality work.

Otherwise, start a blog and hope people find it.
