Grant Gunderson’s epic ski photography comes from a passion for the sport

Mount Shuksan, North Cascades National Park, Washington. “My personal motto has always been, ‘If I can create images that make myself or the general public want to spend time in the mountains or want to go ski or mountain bike, I’m going to be successful.’ That’s the kind of stuff we’re always looking for. What’s going to entice a skier or mountain biker to want to go do it? Most of the brands that I work with really understand that.”
It could be argued that Grant Gunderson’s photographic philosophy boils down quite simply: His goal is to have fun while making never-before-seen images. Seemingly born with a deep love for snow skiing and mountain biking, he has turned these passions into a thriving career. Still, he’s careful not to let the hard work outweigh the adventure.
