Snow Blind

http://snowblind.michaelpyoung.com
"Capturing the Coolness of Kids"...it's an alternate tagline of mine for my pursuit in photography to help teen's share the amazing fire of personality, style, and grace with which they light up this world of ours...and the latest Teen Fire project, Snow Blind, brings to the forefront a fabulous high school youth's talent as a freeride skier.

In both the Titanium project, and this new project, Snow Blind, my goal is to capture teens doing what they love in a way that is exciting and timeless....where their coolness is the center of attention....

The Snow Blind project was not originally a scheduled project.  It came about by way of a high school teenager, Steven.  He is the younger brother of a young man for whom I shot his senior portraits in October 2011.
