Majestic Mountain Photos Taken by a Backcountry Skier


You could say that photographer Scott Rinckenberger was training for his job long before he ever picked up a camera. He’s been skiing his whole life but it was just a few years ago that he decided to leave ski resorts behind to concentrate on what he calls “the wilderness.”

“It’s the place that I’ve been able to get to on my skis since then that has inspired this project,” he says. Called An Elevated State, the series consists of incredibly majestic photos of Washington’s mountains. Taken during a 12 month period while he’s backcountry skiing, Rinckenberger shows us Washington as we’ve never seen it before. Love how he purposefully captures man as just a small silhouette against the grandeur of nature.

“My photographic method is immersive and minimal,” he writes on his website. “I incorporate photography into adventures. I carry a very small kit and try to cover as much ground as possible on foot, skis and bikes. It is through this kinetic mode that I find my images, or they find me.”

An Elevated State is showing at Evo’s Seattle store for the month of January. Click here or watch the video, below, to learn more.
