Cole Barash! This kid is 20 years old, and became a member of the Nutopia Forum after meeting Platon in Santa Fe. He's never been to photography school, starting taking pictures when he was 13, and has traveled to more countries than you've clicked your shutter. He regularly finds himself in helicopters, driving snow machines at night with 100lbs of equipment, shoveling snow, scaling treacherous mountains and even contemplating doing a snowboard photo shoots in Hawaii.
We just saw Cole last night, and he dropped off this amazing cover shot he did for Transworld Snowboarding! We thinks it's pretty amazing. Look out for this guy in the future and also his work in one of the upcoming issues of Nutopia Magazine...Keep ripping it up Cole!
