Deven Hickingbotham has been skiing even longer than he has been making pictures (49 seasons and 39 years, respectively), which may explain his passion and success with ski-racing photography. His winning photo is emblematic of his work: a tight shot, technically excellent, great action, and, in this case, a wonderful expression that really sets it apart.
