Life in Focus: Jeff Curtes

Episode Six of the Life in Focus Mini Series teaches us about the evolution of awesome. Staff Pro Jeff Curtes made his name and went big time as a Snowboard photographer spending a big chunk of his career as the principal shooter at Burton. In the last few years Jeff has relocated to Sydney, Australia with his family, where he now has the freedom to shoot all of the things that he is passionate about. While he still gets sick gigs shooting on snow, we get the chance to tag along while Jeff works with Vanilla Bicycles in Portland to shoot their 2014 Speedvagen Road Lookbook. Keep in mind, no matter you shoot, in Jeff's words: "successes come from really knowing my subject matter and really caring about it". Word.
Jeff Curtes: visionary, snow shooter, cyclist, lover of life.

Life in Focus takes us behind the scenes with our Staff Pro Team to capture them in their element, and to show the world their story of how they became the pro's they are. The series will present a different f-stop Staff Pro in each episode exploring their world along with the techniques and skills that distinguish them from the rest.
Our collaborative effort with the team is an essential cog in the f-stop product development process. Working with industry leading professionals to design and build the ultimate camera packs and bags is an ongoing endeavor that has helped us to become the brand and company that we are today.
