This is definitely the most Canadian production we've worked on. We got a call from Photographer Mark Zibert and SPORTSNET Magazine's Myles McCutcheon to lead up Field Production/Locations on a special assignment for the sports mega brand.
Athletes from the Canadian Olympic Team, Western Canadian parks and mountains, all shot in original scenarios. Here's a look at how Chasing Winter Media helps creative productions like this come to life. Moving people around in a wild mountain environment is a daunting task. Here's a look behind the scenes. Lights, Camera, OUTDOORS!
