A few days in the remote backcountry to silence the voices. 100cm+ fresh, heli access and a solid crew of guides and riders to regain focus.
A big thanks to the Penticton Museum and Library for supporting the imagine change project and hosting the Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School student image gallery show. The show will go from mid December into the new year. Please see the invite image for more details.
Getting back to my happy place to recharge, get a few waves and shoot some aerials. Massive swell hit for most of the trip making for great shots.
Fujifilm has generously offered 6 cameras for the Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School students to use with the imagine change project in Penticton. The students are excited to see what they can create with the cameras and we are looking forward to their work.
We are launching a new imagine change (www.imaginechange.ca) project and will collaborate with the Penticton Indian Band’s Outma Sqilix’w Cultural School to teach 12 year old students about photography, give them the fundamentals and set them free to document their environment and tell their story. Images will be installed around the community and a gallery show put together before Christmas. Looking forward to the results.
One of the hidden gems of the Canadian West Coast. The history of the islands and the rich culture of the Haida people permeate the rugged landscape. Historic totems, first nations art and miles of beaches and surf leave a blissful imprint of a wilder place.
Explorations of the north on mountain bikes, no better way to see it
We were greeted by a pod of Orcas returning from 7 days offshore, a humbling welcome.
Being selected as a contributing Getty Images photographer is an honor. Getty has a reputation as the top photo/image agency in the world and being a contributor is an accomplishment. Looking forward to many engaging projects.
It is a profound experience to be put in a room with 130+ ambassadors from around the world and learn from what everyone brings to the summit. Everyone there makes a difference in their lives and within their community. The passion, ideas and experiences are overwhelming. Documenting the experience, it is always challenging to capture the essence of the summit but the people are what make this a truly great event. As a photographer I can’t help but absorb the energy and come away from the experience charged up and ready to move forward.
The most active volcano on earth is on Hawaii’s big island. “Pele” the goddess of fire, is said to reside in Halemaʻumaʻu crater, at the summit caldera of Kīlauea. These are a few aerial shots of her home. Active lava flows and the expansion of lava flow can be seen daily here.
This fall we headed to the Galapagos partly for work, partly to live out many of the nature shows I watched as a child and continue to get lost in. With family in tow, we swam with sharks, turtles, tuna, iguanas and penguins to name a few. Experiencing this place through the eyes of a 3 year old was enough to set the course for many future projects. Take a look at a few images in the Galapagos gallery here.
Spent the last 7 days floating around the west coast of Vancouver Island shooting a few scenics, paddle boarding, surfing and fishing. The lines between work and pleasure blurred and the result was a few great images while having a time.
Good locations and great a great crew ensured a number of strong ambassadors shots in Kelowna this past week. Every shoot in Kelowna gets better and better, there is such tremendous talent in the interior.
We were up in northern Newfoundland this past week shooting landscapes and icescapes. Frozen water from thousands of years ago flows down from the north every spring to create spectacular icebergs. A few of the best areas for shooting the “bergs” were early Viking settlements.
A few days with some of the best athletes and ambassadors from the lululemon community always yields amazing results. Inspired by stories, activities and insight the share, grow and experience all that is lululemon. A sunrise November project run by Andrew Ference (@Ferknuckle) started the last day out on a high note and after a provocative 3 days everyone parted ways to share their experiences around the world.
Great times in Whistler at the WSSF 2015 State of the Art opening night on Friday. A quick vid of the install - a number of very talented artists showing their work, grateful to be apart of it.
Just finishing up a few resin pours and transfers on images that are going into the State of the Art show in Whistler tonight for the #WSSF. Stoked.
Had the opportunity to work with lululemon Richmond's team as they prep for a new store opening. They have 4 new ambassadors in the community and are off to a strong start with great ambassadors.
