Cole Barash learned photography by doing it. He started early with the craft: a hungry kid in the darkroom. Shot everything. He had quickly created a language for himself with the camera. Pure expression. Abstract vision. Creative impulse into art.
Documenting the motion and emotion of snowboarding, Cole learned technique. The mountain environment taught him patience and humility. The nonstop travel fueled his fire. And filtered through his youthful vision, a steady stream of images emerged: sharp and electrifying.
The quality of his early work turned Cole from precocious upstart to professional photographer almost overnight. Today, Cole is among action sports’ most sought after photographers and is now continuing his path outside of the split second world. On everything from magazine covers to global ad campaigns, his images speak in honest, universal tones. They invite and engage.
In any environment, from the studio to the streets to the high alpine, Cole’s vision is guided by passion and precision. It reflects both his intensity and his creative vision. Inspired, inspiring: This is Cole Barash.
