In the spring of 2009, the organizers of the World Ski Snowboard Festival snuck me into the oversold Pro Photo Showdown. Sporting a freshly torn meniscus, I sat in the back corner of the tech area, and watched Jordan Manley’s winning show, and knew I wanted to compete.

Six years, hundreds of days shooting, countless kilometers, and 4 camera bodies later, that dream became a reality. Once the judges and crowd had cast their ballots, my show won the People’s Choice award. But, the memory that will stand with me is the terrifyingly beautiful sound of 1400 people reacting to my show.

My show will stay offline until early spring 2016, as specific images are key for upcoming campaigns for my clients. To arrange a private showing, please contact me directly.
Dan Treadway, Whistler BC
Thanks to all of the athletes, friends, family, and supporters who have been part of this incredible journey.

This single image was the inspiration for our entire trip for SBC Skier Magazine
To one’s eye it burns above, but from no fuel
It dances without rhythm, ebbs and flows upon it’s own accord
To one’s skin it offers no warmth
Without warning, it doubles back and surges forward
To one’s year, curtains waving in the wind, a trick of the mind
Wind nor gale can blow the magical flames
To one’s nose and mouth, it pays no notice
Fire of the sky
Thanks to everyone who made this happen. It took a village. Tobin Seagel, Dave Gheriani, Joel Jacques, Tyson Bourgard, Isabel Lindeman, John Irvine, Jason Mousseau, Les Anthony, Jeff Schmuck, and many more.
