Jake McBride. Jake is one of Aus­tralia’s best and most pro­lific snow pho­tog­ra­phers and has been for years. While his other pho­tog­ra­phy work means he stays at his sea­side base in Syd­ney, Jake’s al­ways keen to jump in the car for some hit and run mis­sions when the snow is on. He nailed some great pho­tos last win­ter. Jake’s also pretty good on skis and as a ju­nior was a mem­ber of the Thredbo Freestyle Squad where he was renowned for ski­ing in builders’ over­alls and a flanno shirt. This shot of Jake ski­ing was taken by his 10-year-old son Asher.

Luke Kneller. Luke has spent the past 12 months rid­ing a mo­tor­bike from Lon­don to his home in Jind­abyne, the route tak­ing him through Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pak­istan and Myan­mar. It’s the kind of trip that makes you ap­pre­ci­ate your own place in the world, but Luke said it also re­in­forced his view that Jind­abyne is, “The best place in the world to live.” When Luke was a ju­nior skier he was dis­qual­i­fied from the In­ter­school moguls comp for do­ing a back-flip.

Teddy Lay­cock. At the time of writ­ing Teddy was in Ice­land on a hik­ing, ski­ing, camp­ing trip with Chris Booth. It’s the kind of trip Teddy lives for and over the past few years he has built a rep­u­ta­tion as a pho­tog­ra­pher and ski guide, spend­ing weeks in the Aus­tralian back­coun­try each win­ter and he pho­tographed our Shadow of Town­shend story with the Se­gal sis­ters. Not sure if Teddy has any claims to fame as a ju­nior skier.
