Fred Mortagne_Slideshow.

Congrats to Fred Mortagne for winning the Olympus Pro Photographer Showdown 2018 happening in Whistler, Canada, on April 12th. For the second year in a row, skateboarding was shinning bright, after Jake Darwen won the competition last year.”On top of being very honoured with this win, I am also very proud of the slideshow I put together. As both a photographer and a videographer, it was really fun for me to build up an audio-visual piece sublimating my photographic works. Yet it was really challenging to create something strong and enjoyable to watch that last nearly 10 minutes. Early tests were not so convincing, and finally, I decided to not worry so much about gathering potentially winning ingredients, but to create something I would just be happy about and proud of, attempting to bring something different, fresh and hopefully exciting. If it wasn’t for that competition, I would never have created this slideshow and I am now happy to share it with everyone“.
