Dean "Blotto" Gray has been documenting the best riders in snowboarding and the heart of the sport's culture for years. In his current capacity as a Burton Team photographer, Blotto is afforded the opportunity to travel over 300 days per year with one of the top contemporary crews in the game. From Shaun White's final hit in an X-Games gold run to a secret pow stash with Dave Downing and Jake Burton himself, Blotto gets more than just the hype. With his work featured in every major snowboard magazine on the planet, along with representation by one of photography's top sports photo houses, Blotto's images are finding their ways into a lot more than just catalogues and shred magazines these days. Jeff Curtes is the principal photographer for Burton Snowboards and currently resides in Boulder, Colorado with his Australian wife Jess Mooney. He began snowboarding on a Burton Performer in 1985 with his brother, and has been shooting for Burton since 1994. Snowboarding has been a part of Adam Moran for almost his entire life.

He puts his passion together with his job and has been published in every major snowboard magazine in the world and in Burton ads and catalogs. Moran now works full time team managing Shaun White and documenting the life of action sports' first major celebrity. With every rider at every shoot he has the stoke and passion that he had the first time he dropped in 20 years ago.
