Nick Goepper is On Top of the World!
You would be too if you were 19, just won a gold medal at the Winter X Games for slopestyle skiing and were travelling the world to ski. I always love shooting athletes for Red Bull because they are always up for a good time, down to try something new and the shoots always end up in laughter.
Nick was no different and the only time he got stressed was when I asked him to launch off a jump with my camera while I triggered it from below. He didn’t think my jokes about “that’s what insurance is for!” were very funny but once he saw the results he was pumped and even threw a few laid out backflips to make things more interesting.
All in all a fun day on the slopes with one of the nicest people I’ve shot in a while. Nick will be defending his title in Tignes France for Euro X games so check him out on ESPN soon! Spinning and flipping on a TV screen near you!
