Focal Point: The photography of Dean Blotto Gray

Please expand gallery for full experience.

At Snowboard Magazine it is our mission to shine light on the many dimensions of snowboarding. The highs, lows, down days, powder days, the travel, the countless moments before and after getting “the shot” that are rarely seen outside of those who experience it. As the Principal Photographer for Burton, Dean Blotto Gray has captured 14 years of these moments with the best snowboarders in the world. For nearly 300 days of the year he can be found in a helicopter with Nicolas Müller, on street missions with Jeremy Jones, or pinning a snowmobile in the Whistler Backcountry with Jussi Oksanen. He is a master of his craft. It was an easy decision to feature Blotto’s work in the inaugural photo essay for Focal Point, as there are few photographers more deserving of being called the best.

About Focal Point:

This photo essay series was designed to exhibit the countless photos that do not make it into the incredibly competitive pages of snowboarding magazines. Photos can be published or unpublished, taken 10 years ago or last season. Photographers are given 17 photographic categories to meet, each with the goal of showing a different aspect of life in snowboarding. All captions are written by the photographer.
