Last winter, Missouri photographer Rob Westrich’s dramatic black and white limited edition raptor photos climbed onto the Audi Birds of Prey podium as official trophies for the 2009 event.
This year, they will literally be everywhere during Beaver Creek’s World Cup Weekend as Westrich’s photo of a Golden Eagle serves as the overall creative for the 2010 Audi FIS Birds of Prey World Cup.
Named “Official Artist” for Birds of Prey, his photo graces all collateral materials for Birds of Prey, including posters, credentials, print ads, banners, event packets and signage. He will also be providing a trio of different raptor photos as awards for race winners.
“Mr. Westrich’s photos are incredible,” offered Michael Imhof, Vice President of Sales and Operations for the Vail Valley Foundation, “and I can guarantee his Golden Eagle image truly conveys the drama and intensity of the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup races. It is very striking and very personal.”
Westrich is owner and operator of Westrich Photography, one of St. Louis’ most respected and prolific photo studios. His Raptor Series is a fine art study that captures the majesty, character and arresting personality of 14 different birds of prey in black and white photographic portraiture. The series has won worldwide acclaim and has been delivered to collectors throughout the United States and 20 countries around the world.
In March, Westrich was presented with the Nominee title at the 5th Annual Black and White Spider Awards in the Wildlife category at the prestigious Nomination and Winners Photo Show, “attended” by 35,000 online viewers that logged on live from 154 countries.
In addition to the Audi Birds of Prey trophies, Westrich’s Raptor Series photographs will also be on display in the World Cup registration area on the main level of Beaver Creek’s Gerald R. Ford Hall. He has also donated a framed version of the Golden Eagle print for auction at the annual Black Diamond Ball on Friday evening. The print is number one of a limited edition of just 50 prints offered worldwide.
