Bud Fawcett Sells The Old School

by The Editors on November 15, 2009

Kidwell86 03When it comes to images that capture the very beginning days of snowboarding, no one has a deeper file that photographer Bud Fawcett. Aside from publishing them in the occasional snowboard magazine history story, Fawcett has mostly kept the photos to himself. But according to his blog, that has recently changed.

After many years of avoiding personal requests for many of my snowboarding photos, I finally decided it’s easier to set up an online shop rather than spitting them out one-by-one on my inkjet printer. I just got the 5×7 proofs for a test and the quality is really good. The B&W’s look like the real thing. Check it out, maybe you need a Christmas present for yourself.

Thanks to the online setup some of snowboarding’s most iconic images are now available as t-shirts, mugs, and even 30×40 museum mounted prints. And yes, that includes the photo of Jeff Brushie putting the final nail in the GS coffin at the Op Pro at June Mountain.
