Bo Bridges, Photographer


Bo Bridges’ amazing photography career started with the “new-school” movement in skiing. Back then, Bo was just out of college, moved to Vail, and did whatever he could to break into the world of photography…. his drive, combined with his all-important hustle and business savvy created the path to being one of, if not the most, successful action sports photographer of our time. On the podcast we talk about photography, Seth Morrison, Tom Cruise, Dr. Dre, Freeze Magazine, and a whole lot more. Another do not miss episode.
