Mike Yoshida’s photography career started as a skateboard dirtbag in Alaska and then he made his way down to the Lower 48.  He’s spent seasons riding Baker and getting to know the NW, the snowboard scene and the people involved in it.  His summers at Mt Hood turned into a photo gig at K2 he parlayed that into gigs with Snowboarder and Transworld.  Today, he is the Photo Editor of Snowboarder Magazine, a dream job for anyone who likes to slide sideways.  On the podcast, we talk about the road to his desk.

Scott Gaffney is a Sherpa in the world of elite athletes.  He carries a 40 pound backpack through some of the more remote places in the world all in the name of “getting the shot”.  Like many before him, the ski dream was only achieved through hardships that a lot of us don’t know.  Sleeping in cars, taking showers in local sprinkler systems and doing whatever it takes to make it.  And for Scott, “making it” became a sort of groundhog day of filming, editing and producing rad ski movies.  Hear the whole story on the podcast.
