Choose Your Adventure || Cy Whitling
This week, we're featuring Cy Whitling for the #ChooseYourAdventure project!
For me I started out taking photos because I wanted to remember all the stupid stuff my friends and I loved to do. I never saw it progressing past that, so being able to shoot as much as I do now is incredible.
It’s gotten to a point where photography has become more of a vehicle that allows me to do the things I want to do, visit the places I want to go, and experience incredible things. However, while I now shoot for many different reasons, that underlying desire to remember all this fun stuff I’m blessed enough to get to do is still driving me. So no matter what the photos I take are going to be used for, I still want them to motivate people to get out there and make some memories.
What initially inspired you to start skiing or snowboarding?
My mom bought the family-sized box of granola bars at Costco and it came with a Warren Miller DVD. I watched that and decided that’s what I wanted to do.
What inspired you to blend your photography skills with skiing or snowboarding?
I was already skiing a little when I got my first camera. Initially I just shot everything my friends did, cliff jumping, mountain biking, and eventually skiing. Those were most definitely my most poplar photos, and I ended up just picking up momentum from there.
How do you want people to react to the photos you take?
I want them to be motivated to better use their time, and take advantage of every opportunity to get outside they are given
Where were your Choose Your Own Adventure photos taken?
Grand Targhee Resort
Why did you choose to shoot at that location above all others?
Targhee has great snow, and an awesome laid back vibe
What motivates you to get up, and get outside to adventure?
Anything that allows me to tell stories that get other people excited about making the most of their lives
