Tim Peare is a US-based photographer who for the past few years has been on the payroll at Forum Snowboards, charged with documenting the team’s antics both on and off the hill. Recently the plug was pulled on Forum but in honour of the good times, Tim’s released this rad slideshow of his photos. You can check out more of Tim’s epic shots in the current issue of Onboard, where we pay tribute to the influence Forum’s had on snowboarding with our Forum Forever gallery…
Here’s what Tim himself had to say on the slideshow. Make yourself a brew, hit full screen and enjoy 9 minutes of epic shred snaps.
I originally created this slideshow for a presentation at the Lake Tahoe Digital Photo Institute in South Lake Tahoe summer of 2012. Ian Ruhter and myself were the head presenters. Since then, Forum Snowboards, my employer, has been shut down and has now become a permanent piece of snowboarding history.
The slideshow is comprised of 3 parts: Part I is my first year on Forum during the making of “Forever”. Part II are portraits and lifestyles with many of the people I have had the pleasure to have worked with. Part III is a closing segment with many of my favorite images. Please take a moment to watch the slideshow and reflect on the fleeting nature of the moment now.
*there is only one non Forum image in the entire slideshow, however, that image, is the true launching point of my career. It’s the first action photo in Part III
