RANDY BOVERMAN:

It started with his first darkroom class in high school when he saw those first enlargements coming to life. Then he bought an enlarger and setup his own darkroom, from that point on Randy Boverman was hooked for life. He shot ski photos early on, but was most influenced by a term studying in Europe that started and finished in the Alps. Eventually that led to gigs for ski areas and magazines, and commercial shoots for the snowsport industry.

Randy spent a couple of years assisting photographers in the early 90’s, and that led to a career shooting fashion advertising. Boverman spent 12 years as Meier and Frank’s staff fashion photographer, going freelance when they merged in 2002. Now he enjoys working for a variety of clients and has a studio near the Rose Quarter in Portland, but still loves shooting in the mountains the best!

TREVOR GRAVES:

Photographer Trevor Graves’ first photo was published in ISM, one of the sport‘s early publications, when he was barely twenty years old—it was a 1987 shot of Noah Brandon and John Gerndt riding on his home turf at Nashoba Valley, Massachusetts. Since then, Trevor has been a crucial part of telling snowboarding’s story—traveling the world in search of snow; following the storm for as long as it takes; capturing the spirit of progression; and speaking in a language of images. He’s widely respected for bringing an element of true creativity to snowboard photography.

In 1998, Trevor founded Nemo Design a Millennial brand design agency here in Portland. His contribution to the team today is to find partnerships with potential clients, creatives and causes.

TIM ZIMMERMAN:

Zimmerman’s path into snowboard photography started in the early 90‘s in Killington, Vermont, as a mountain staff photographer. He invested the money he made snapping pics of tourists smiling on the top of the mountain to buy his own slide film and shoot the riding of local talents in his spare time. This determination eventually lead to the position of photo editor for Eastern Edge Magazine, where he honed in his eye and photographic style. Looking to increase his vertical and diversity of subject, Zim soon made the pilgrimage out west to Portland and began framing the likes of Eric Jackson, Danny Kass, Sketchy D, Kyle Clanc and more.

Zim’s career highlights include: #1 most published snowboard photographer in 2009, 17 career covers, winning a free snowboard back in 1999 in a photography competition at Mountain Creek, and clocking 305,000 miles on a single V8 engine in his 2003 Dodge Dakota.
