Nick Hamilton was the one running the show over at TRANSWORLD SNOWboarding for the last very long time until it was recently shuttered forever. A sad day for snowboarding. We Look Sideways sat down with Nick and went way way back into the early days and recounted his history in snowboarding and other stories.

Sample:

In this conversation, recorded at Nick’s Cardiff home in April 2019, we delve into the entire story. It’s an epic that takes in Nick’s own extraordinary tale, but also traces the evolution and changing of the media landscape, an ongoing upheaval at which Nick has witnessed first hand. We also dig deep into the recent developments that have seen Transworld shuttered permanently in the wake of a much-publicised takeover by American Media and which has seen Nick finally end his association with the title after almost two decades.

Episode 081 with legendary snowboard photographer and @twsnow lifer @hamiltonick is now live I go way, way back with Nick. We first met in the mid-90s, and subsequently spent a glorious 6 year period putting together @whitelines_snowboarding magazine as part of a team that included friends and colleagues such as @ed__leigh_ , Chris Moran and Tudor ‘Chod’ Thomas. Nick was always destined for greater things, and it was no surprise when in 2001 he was headhunted by Transworld Snowboarding, subsequently moving to Cali to work first as Photo Editor and then as Content Director. His old friends, myself among them, watched on proudly as his career flourished, overseeing Transworld’s expansion into the digital realm, stewarding the most famous title in snowboarding to ever greater heights and becoming one of the most well connected and respected people in the industry. As a photographer, Nick is rightly legendary. And the story of how he carved out one of the most enviable and influential careers in the industry is equally enthralling. There’s also nobody better placed to pass comment on the state of modern action sports media. In this conversation, recorded at Nick’s Cardiff home in April 2019, we delve into the entire story.

In making this show, I’ve been lucky enough to interview some of the biggest names on the planet. But there’s something special about grabbing a couple of beers and sitting down with one of my oldest friends to reminisce about old times and their own extraordinary career. Hope you enjoy the episode. Link in bio to listen. Photos by @owenmadeup #LSCalifornia #snowboardpodcast #lookingsidewayspodcast
