Night Rider
Tomonori "rip" Tanaka


These photo were taken in Niseko, Hokkaido.
Snowboard night riding shoot.
I am riding with them and trying to capture the intensity around riders when they are carving at high speed.
It looks little bit different from the typical photos you normally see with blue sky and white powder.
This is the moment when riders are focusing on their own turns.
White snow surface and dark black night sky in Black and White film.
The gear they are wearing makes it look like they are in space or something.
Kind of fantastic and wonderful I think.
