PRESS RELEASE:Ã‚Â Sit back and let images take you to beautiful places around the globe with your mountain bike. Supernatural is a slideshow presented by Big Mountain Bike Adventures and features the art of three professional photographers. Firstly, WhistlerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s own Blake Jorgenson will transport you to SwitzerlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s highest peaks on a downhill trip. JorgensonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s surreal images often convey a sense of dark emotion and awe and his images shine in the big mountains. Vancouver-based photographer Harookz, has moved up the ranks of mountain bike photography to become a household name, mostly in the new-school genre of riding. Harookz has cornered this style, from crazy man-made stunts in dank Squamish to loose urban jib sessions in gritty LA. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also got a knack for comical athlete portraits. In his words, Ã¢â‚¬Å“mountain biking in the solitude of the mountains, trying to ride another wave, earning my ethereal powder turnsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I dig life in the elements. Life as a photographer helps me maintain a happy distance away from the routine 9 to 5.Ã¢â‚¬Â Finally, West-VancouverÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Sterling Lorence, who is known as one of the premiere mountain bike photographers in the world. LorenceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s iconic images are graced in ads and magazines across the globe. The show will wrap up with photos from Big Mountain Bike AdventureÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s owner Chris Winter, an amateur photographer whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been exploring the planet for a decade with his mountain bike.
Select framed photos from each photographer will be auctioned off with proceeds to local Whistler charity Zero Ceiling. Ã‚Â More info here.
