Jamaican Winter Sports Hero

Just a quick post with some of the shots from my Errol Kerr shoot. These images were all shot at Lake Donner in Truckee, CA.
You can read the story behind the shoot here.

Errol is the sole member of the Jamaican Ski Team, living in Reno, and training in Tahoe. He is also a successful X-Games competitor.

He made his World Cup debut in January 2008 with a twelfth place in Les Contamines, then in March followed up with an eighth place in Meiringen-Hasliberg . In the 2008–09 season he was thirtieth place in St. Johann in Tirol and fifteenth place in Lake Placid, going on to tenth place worldwide at the Skicross World Championships 2009 in Japan.

Errol finished ninth overall at the 2010 Winter Olympics. This is the best placing by a Caribbean athlete at any Winter Olympics.
At the recent X-Games he finished fifth in Ski Cross at Winter X Games XV.

We had beautiful weather the whole weekend we were there for the shoot which in itself was lots of fun to do!
