ralphie of Nelson, BC Will Join Roster of World-class Mountain Bike Photographers

WHISTLER, BC August 4, 2009 – After poring over 40 photographic submissions, the Saint Wildcard Photographer for the Saint Deep Summer Photo Challenge has been named. Bryan Ralph, aka ralphie, will join the five confirmed photographers and compete to put together a slideshow, shot over three days in Whistler, BC.

As stoked as ralphie was to hear he was in, he now has the task of calling Mattias Fredriksson to let him know he won’t be available to act as a photographer’s assistant in the competition.

“I really wanted to be a part of this competition regardless of whether I won the Saint Wildcard so I took the time off and offered to help Mattias,” says ralphie. “He was really rooting for me to get into Deep Summer though and I am so excited to compete in this event.”
