Fastest Ski Lift in the World ? Real or not, it can only be in Tignes...

This is my new slideshow edit for STGM, the ski lift company in Tignes ski resort, France. Shot entirely on stills, in moderately cold conditions (Minus 16°C, I froze my ___ off !).

Don't know if it's actually the fastest in the world, but it's definitely quick ! It must take about 5 to 6 minutes to climb to the top from the parking lot, and check that crazy view from up there !

See at 00:45, and you'll get further proof it's fast ! Maybe it's a little bit video enhanced, though... Who cares...

How to make a living from the mountains when you actually are from the sea...

I wanted to start this post saying : " Look at what I've been those last 10 days. 3 jobs that can't be more different from one another..."

But, of course, I'm fooling myself... What's the link between covering the opening of a new gondola in Tignes, shooting the next Fall Winter catalogue for a clothing brand, and the delicate job of a ski bootfitter ? The mountains, once again. And I have to admit I love it and all the people I meet there.

Things being equal though, the more time I spend by the sea, the more jobs I get in the Alps. So for once, please guys check the last picture of this post and try to get me a small assignment close to that stuff, just to counter balance a little bit !

Time to shoot again some bikinis, I believe, just to catch some attention...
