3. Ben Giradi



Why we think you’ll love him:

As a pro photographer and passionate snowboarder, it makes sense that Ben would put down roots in somewhere as awe-inspiring as Salt Lake City, Utah.

His strong dedication to the art and craft of photography is always pushing Ben to produce images that will influence the viewers opinion.

4. Tal Roberts



Why we think you’ll love him:

Tal Roberts got his start in the world of photography like many people did in the 90’s…by hitting the pause button on skateboard videos when the tricks looked just right. He’s clearly a very resourceful guy. We like him, already!

You’ll find him on:

5. Mike Helfrich



Why we think you’ll love him:

Growing up skateboarding in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles, “sk8 or die” quickly changed to “snowboard or die” once Mike was exposed to the beauty of the mountains. There was a flood of passion to be a part of this creation, and his camera became the key to working with major publications like Act, SBC Media, and Snowboard.
