Just wanted to post a quick note to share our excitement and pride at one of Scott’s images being chosen as one of the top 50 images in Red Bull’s Illume Image Quest 2013. This contest hasn’t happened since 2010 and the caliber of photographers and athletes featured is staggering.

Aerial view of stand up paddlesurfing the Turnagain Arm boretide in Cook Inlet, Alaska. Eric Newberry, Dave Calkins, and Mike McCune rode the wave caused by the incoming tide for up to five miles on their standup paddleboards.

This photo was the result of Scott’s passion for surfing, aerial perspectives and pioneering surf in Alaska coming together on a magically beautiful morning to be photographing from his paramotor.

The top 50 images will be featured in Red Bull’s unique nighttime exhibition for the next 2 years, beginning with 2 weeks in Hong Kong, then to the U.S. and finally around the world. The images are shown on 2m x 2m lightboxes.

We also want to express congratulations to all the photographers who had images selected, including our friends and surfing buddies Clark Fyans and Chris Burkard.
