There’s an art to Instagramming, and this kid’s got it dialed

Jackson, Wyoming native Aiden Ulrich is more than a super talented skier. He’s one hell of a cameraman, too, and the combination of his passions led to a Marketing Photographer role at Windells this summer (a.k.a. your dream job). Since he arrived at Mt. Hood, he’s been absolutely crushing it, as shown by his impressive Instagram page full of beautiful shots that truly capture the essence of American summer skiing.

“Working as a marketing photographer for Windells Camp was initially a means for me to do as much of my own skiing in the lane as I could, but I became much more enthralled with shooting on the glacier than I would have thought,” Ulrich explains. “Coming into the summer, I felt I might be out of my element because, as of late, I have been exclusively shooting video and making edits for Troupe. But that was a fleeting feeling; I’ve been having the best time taking pictures with old and new friends up here.”

“Taking pictures” on Mt. Hood is not as easy as it may seem, though; you don’t have a ton of physical space, which can make the content repetitive, and there are countless other people up there with cameras that only add to the probability of that repetitiveness. In light of this, Ulrich has made a conscious effort to go off the beaten path.

“I’m hoping to take as few cliché Mt. Hood pictures as possible and showcase a more behind-the-scenes, accessible side of Windells Camp,” he says. “I’m working on accomplishing this in part with my portrait series, ranging from diggers to ams to pros. And, through my photography this summer, I want to give a full scope of how genuinely positive and life-changing Windells can be to its campers, and even its staff.”

Ulrich says he’s trying, but what he may not realize is that he’s already accomplished his goal. Below, find the evidence: A collection of his work listed in chronological order that features a stacked crew of skiers, including Magnus Granér, Jonah Williams, Alex Hackel and Keegan Kilbride.

Each shot is crazy cool, and the craziest thing of all, here, is that they were all captured and posted within the past week. So, as for the weeks to come, we’ve got high expections out of Mr. Ulrich because clearly he does not mess around.
