This week’s “How I Got the Shot” takes us to British Columbia’s Whistler backcountry, where photographer Mike Yoshida captures a moody image of his favorite volcanic peak.
Name: Mike Yoshida
Hometown: Homer, Alaska
Bio: I grew up loving photography, and have always been a really visual person. Picking up a camera was really exciting for me at a young age, and I guess I really just lucked out being in the right place at the right time. I’ve been shooting professionally for the past 10 years, and haven’t looked back since.
Where: Whistler, British Columbia
Why: This is my favorite peak in Whistler. It’s named Mount Fee, and it’s iconic because of its skinny spire that shoots into the sky.
What the image was shot with: Canon Mark 3. I believe I shot this with a shutter speed of a 500th of a second and an aperture at 8.0
Magazine affiliation: Associate photo editor of Snowboarder magazine
