Northern BC continues to draw me back. Vast wilderness with very few people, backyards full of wildlife, little towns dwarfed by open spaces and thousands of miles of skiable mountains. Really–what’s not to like?
Jackson Hole F19 Lookbook We chose to do this particular photoshoot in Jackson Hole following the Arc’teryx Academy in February. An annual gala within our product and creative team to pull together a big project in a few short days to launch of the new products for the ski collection. The goal for the outdoor portion has always been to shoot real people, doing real adventures in the real world. I used to shoot one outfit per week but as […]
Question: What do you look for in a camera?
Answer: While I value the tools that I need to create I am not a pixel peeper.
Live Like Laura Kos I consider it my great fortune to have known Laura Kosakoski. Even more grateful to have been able to share time in the mountains with her. Thanks to my long time friend and Arc athlete Adam Campbell, who brought Laura into the Arc’teryx family a few years ago. Laura – May we all live more in line with the values you embraced and lived by. A list so beautifully articulated by your Hockey Girls who have […]
Iceland We had a layover in Iceland on our way to Greenland to shoot climbing, hiking and trail running all based from a boat. Boats in Greenland book out years in advance. As my vision for the art direction was Moving Cabin, a boat was pretty key. The only available boat we could find came with one condition — we had to sail it from Iceland. I flew in 24 hours before the rest of my crew to pick up some gear we direct shipped, and […]
For most skiers Bella Coola will be high on their ‘go ski’ list. It’s a mountain mecca perched mid-way up the British Columbian coast loaded with skiable terrain amongst jaw dropping mountains.
How I Got My Job Senior Photographer ARC’TERYX EQUIPMENT I get asked this question often and I try to respond to everyone personally if I can because I’ve always loved to dispel any myths of a secret sauce. This is my story: I have my job as the only full time Arc’teryx Photographer not because I am a genius photographer or a high performance athlete. I’m not hyper talented like some of my peers and I am far from being […]
Canmore Ice Alberta, Canada Confession – ice climbing is not my first choice of sport. It’s cold, sketchy and winter/life is just too short to spend it hanging in a harness freezing my ass off in the shade. Especially when I could be out skiing powder. However, it’s one of my favourite things to shoot as it’s so visually interesting. This ice climbing shoot was for a product launch for an insulated climbing jacket in Canmore, Alberta.

The Tombstones Yukon Barely heard of the Yukon? You aren’t alone. Even after my second visit here I have barely scratched the surface of this wild place. What I do know – it’s huge, it’s wild and for such a small population it has so much heart. The scenery of the Yukon is rugged in a rolling tundra plain kind of way. It’s unique and lonely in a way that it’s kind of impossible to visually connect it to its […]
Mount Weart Coast Range, BC Mount Weart (2835m) is located 14km Northeast of Whistler. This shoot was part of bigger photography project for the Spring Lookbook. The theme for the season was ‘Who We Are’. The idea was to celebrate the people behind the brand and our backyard here in BC – such a joy to bring my camera back home to my hometown. It was also an amazing opportunity work with the people behind the brand as everyone we […]
