I believe these two images speak for themselves.
This one hits close to home for me, it was less than two years ago when I took that first photo in Patagonia. The second photo was sent to me by @rmdub, he shot it earlier this week. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. So much has vanished, a few kilometres of ice gone in such a relatively short period of time.
The underlying message here is to be considerate to our planet (our home) and reduce our footprint as much as possible. Earth doesn’t need us, we need it. I just want to share what I am seeing and hopefully inspire change on any level. I’ve learned that until an issue affects you personally no change is going to be made. Get out there and learn, see for yourself and come up with your own answers, solutions and judgments. I’m not exactly the best role model when it comes to living a low carbon output lifestyle but seeing things like this makes me questions my actions more.

The most ideal way to get down a mountain.

Peaks for weeks and rays for days.
I went on my first ever climbing trip in September 2017, and was fortunate enough to have it be in Chamonix, the birthplace of alpinism. I was way out of my comfort zone and admittledy afraid of the exposure and heights. However it didn't take long until I became addicted to the adrenaline and problem solving aspects involved with climbing. In a pursuit to access hard to reach landscapes, become more immersed in the alpine setting and to gain new perspectives I have been constantly humbled. There are a lot of new challenges involved with shooting while attached to a rope and I am beyond grateful for the mentors i’ve had thus far!
If you’re a photographer or just enjoy taking photos there’s a good chance you’ve undergone some challenges at some point. Whether it’s been physical, mental, weather related, or even a language barrier @captureonepro is challenging you to share the stories behind your images. When you tag them with #captureone and #nevercompromise you automatically enter to win a FujiFilm X-T20 camera along with a Capture One Pro 12 license! Sounds pretty good to me, check out their page for more info. at Chamonix, France
Collaboration is important in creative work, being able to work along side other artists and creators helps us grow and learn. Super excited to see the finished 48” X 36” piece that @lucas.kratochwil painted from a photo of mine. It was a memorable sunset over Mount Baker and I’m happy to see it in a new form. Check him out for more incredible mountain art!
If you find yourself in Whistler it’s available at @mountaingalleries. at Vancouver, British Columbia
@vuarnetsunglasses, the iconic sunglasses company from the 50’s recently released a winter outerwear line designed to keep you protected in harsh alpine conditions. It was a pleasure to help create some of the imagery for the launch. It’s always a good time when there’s a heli involved! #owntheday #sponsored at British Columbia
Making graphs in the backcountry. 📈If this was the stock market it would be looking pretty good..but not for long! 📉
From a recent shoot for @vuarnetsunglasses in the Tantalus Range. Grateful for the opportunity to see more of the backyard while bringing some French innovation and style into the coast mountains. #owntheday #sponsored at Coast Mountains
White Sands, New Mexico. I just learned that the gypsum sand there is not actually white, it’s clear. It’s reflected by the sun to make it appear white. It also dissolves in water but since it is so dry there all the grains have been preserved, making this the largest gypsum sand field in the world! #neature at New Mexico
Choosing your line can be an art form. @anttiautti demonstrating his artistry with simplicity. Norway 2018.
