Knack recently created this profile video on Australian freestyle skier Russ Henshaw for REDBULL – The guy shreds! Born in Sydney, Henshaw strapped on his first pair of skis when he was three. A dozen years later, encouraged by national under-12 slalom titles, his parents moved to Jindabyne, the golden gateway to the NSW snowfields. Now he spends most of the year with his passport in his pocket on a world dream snowfields tour; home maybe for 10 days for Christmas in the northern winter, anywhere from his beloved Perisher to New Zealand or even South America during the southern winter.
So Stoked to be invited onto Corbin Harris’ show Pop Gun on Fuel TV… We talked Skate Photography, The Camera Club and Knack Studios.
