 copilot series
a photographic odyssey by chris brunkhart in honor of craig kelly

Near Cataldo, Idaho
1997

On a trip through the West, Craig and I stopped to visit Steve Matthews and his cat operation. Waking up early the next morning, getting in the 4x4, a cat, and then a little hiking, Steve got us to the powder. 

Not very many people can throw up a big spray of powder and make it look as good as Craig Kelly. This photo gives me goose bumps. Beautiful.

My first shot that ran in a magazine was one of Craig. I happened to be in the right place at the right time. We never actually met on that day, he was just hitting a jump in Whistler. Craig called me one day years later and invited me to Alaska. Little did I know the adventures that lay ahead. 

He influenced my life, my way of thinking, and how I saw the world. We traveled all over the globe, spending a lot of our time in AK and Chile. For years we bonded, becoming friends and compatriots. I grew as a snowboarder, a photographer and a person knowing him. I’ll never forget these journeys, and my time with a great friend.
