Hitting the X Games Slopes with Kareem Black
Kareem Black traveled to Aspen, Colorado for ESPN's Winter X Games, which is known around the world for its daredevil displays of athleticism. Over the course of seven days Kareem shot portraits of almost 30 Red Bull sponsored athletes all over Buttermilk Mountain. Though it was only Kareem's first time in Aspen, he got a good idea of what the X Games were about after riding snowmobiles and ski lifts up and down the slopes.
The goal of the shoot was to capture portraits of the professional snowboarders and skiers in front of sparse backgrounds that somehow incorporated the Red Bull logo. Look closely and you can spot the iconic two bulls on the athletes' scarves, hats, and snowboards.
