Scott Serfas: Illumination Winner
Photograph By Scott Serfas/Red Bull Illume
Athlete: Travis Rice
This photo was taken on the second trip during the making of 'The Art of Flight.' I really wanted to shoot a photo from the helicopter, right above Travis Rice as he was riding a line, but it was very difficult to coordinate because there was another heli in the air shooting with a Cineflex camera.
The sun was setting fast, so the director, Curt Morgan, called for Travis to drop into the line, and as he made his second turn down the mountain, I snapped this shot. This turned out to be the last photo I took during what was the best snowboarding trip of my life. -- Serfas
