As the world gets ready for the HD iTunes and DVD release of "The Art of Flight," pros and industry VIPS are trying on their red carpet outfits, and New York City ticket scalpers are gouging snowboard fans for their hard-earned money as the frenzy is on to get tickets to the sold-out world premiere at the Beacon Theater tonight. But on the morning before the (much deserved) celebration of the cinematic achievements of Curt Morgan and his talented, dedicated crew of lensmen, we wanted to give a final shout-out the quiet workhorses laboring behind the scenes on this project: the photographers.
Almost a dozen photographers took tens of thousands of images of Travis Rice and company over the two years of filming for TAOF. Here are some of our favorite photos from one of the main still shooters, TransWorld Snowboarding senior staff photographer Scott Serfas, brought to you in our special zoom gallery format. We invite you to sit back and take a quiet stroll through photo-memory lane. And heads up snowboard-photo fans: as of tomorrow, many of these pictures will be available in for you to hold in your hands -- old-school, analog style -- in the form of a limited-edition book, and in a limited-edition print run of the Art of Flight photo collection on Rice's online art gallery website, asymbolgallery.com.
