The Big Picture- Blotto and Shaun White’s Tight Crop

Gracing the pages of the December issue of Transworld Snowboarding is a Burton ad of Shaun White doing a textbook handplant. The photo was shot by legendary photog Blotto, and is a throwback to the old days when ads were shot in a “tight crop” format. Burton recently released a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the ad and it’s pretty dang interesting. Blotto and crew spent the day at Northstar-at-Tahoe getting shot after shot of Shaun head-banging and hand-planting on a quarterpipe.

Tight crop, tight pants, tight handplant- What could be better?
