We're back!! And since winter is in the air, we thought it would be appropriate to kick off Season 2 of the podcast with someone who is definitely familiar with winter, and has been providing us with some inspirational snowboard photos for years. On this episode of the podcast we talk to Snowboard and Action Sports Photographer Scott Serfas. He tells us about growing up in the suburbs of Vancouver and the event that would have him trading in his dreams of being a proffesional skier for a snowboard and never looking back. It was his love of the mountains, and his desire to figure out a way to stay in them, that finally led him to try his hand at photography after walking away from a job in the trades as a plumber. Although his parents weren't too excited about seeing their son leave a good paying job, it wasn't long before he had landed several publications and started getting some of the validation he needed to think maybe it might work. Since those early published photos, Scott has gone on to be one of Transworld Snow's most veteran senior photographers and has had the opportunity to shoot all over the world for companies like Red Bull and Brain Farm Media. During our conversation we got the chance to ask Scott how he stays motivated to keep shooting, how he balances his family life with a professional life of travel, how he stays relevant in the world of action sports, what it's like to have to be the old guy in the room surrounded by young athletes, and what motivated him to partner up in other ventures like his own snowboard company. It was a fun conversation that we think you'll enjoy and hopefully have you out there looking for adventures of your own.
