October Print Sale: Part 4!

Hi friends,

If you've ever met Chris Dufficy and not been moved to become a better person you may have a missing gene. Simply put, he's one of the greatest humans ever to strap into a snowboard. In 2001 we were filming a little movie called True Life for a now defunct snowboard company called Forum. It was the best. Great crew, great riding, good times.

This shot is from a zone called Face Mountain on the hurley river road. We pioneered a lot of new zones in those days and as a result there was a lot of time when we'd be the only crew in an area. Face was like that for a long time.

This print is perfectly sized at 16 x 20 inches on super gloss paper made from butterfly wings. It's all yours for $179 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support friends and family in my life who are battling cancer. My brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. If you don't need a photo for your wall, click through and help them out anyway.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long. Check out all the sold ones here and here and here.

October Print Sale: Part 3!

Hi Friends,

Here we ago again with another well-loved shot of Lukas Huffman! All the Kootenay noboard posse know where this one is taken, but I'll never tell. Let's just say it's in part of British Columbia's massive backcountry playground. In 2006 I spent a couple weeks traveling around BC with Lukas and crew filming for his IR77 project. I have great memories of that trip and some classic images. This shot is a testimony to simple lighting and perseverance, there was a lot of slogging gear through deep snow to make it work.

This print is a MASSIVE 20 x 30 inches on super duper gloss paper and it's simply beautiful. It's all yours for $189 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support friends and family in my life who are battling cancer. My brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long. Check out another one here and here.

Winter work sets in.

Now it can be told...

So I started to work with my old friends at Monster again last week. As longtime followers of the blog know, I've been doing all kinds of different media projects in the last few years as a way to keep myself challenged and to continue to add experiences to my list. After the success of the Grenade Games last spring, Monster was nice enough to have me back to work on through the Olympic year. Which brings me to this event. I'm afraid that I can't give anything away yet because details are being pounded out as we speak, but suffice it to say, for all the people who can't afford, or don't want to attend the Olympics, we're going to make sure that there is an event you can get stoked on at the same time.

Stay tuned for details, this one is going to be good.

Oh ya, and then I'll be working on Grenade Games 6 too. My liver hurts already.

Also. I've been taking pictures of the buildings on my walk to and from the Monster Office for a long time now. Eventually the plan is to have photos of every building on the west side of Main, from Alexander to the viaduct, in all sorts of different media (35mm film, digital, large format, paint, whatever) and line em all up on a white wall somewhere so you can experience my walk to work. I'm hoping to get it done some time in 2010. I've been posting a bunch of stuff on flickr lately too. Weird.

The book. It exists. And folks are talking.

Well! The advance copies of my book "Out West: Snowboarding, Westbeach and a new Canadian dream." have hit some media outlets and all I can say is wow! Great reviews. People are stoked. I'm stoked. Everybody's happy!

I want to talk more about it but I'm swamped in this edit right now. I have a lot of stuff I want to blog about so stay tuned for some recently published shots that I'm stoked of, some of my opinionated rants, and Way more pictures. Until then read the reviews:

the fog



Vancouver is setting a record for the longest stretch of fog ever. I mean, I heard that anyway. It might be true, maybe not. This was taken at noon. (That also may not be true.)

Snowboard Photo Blog: part 3

Hello and welcome to part three of me showing photos from last winter that have yet to find homes in any publication. This particular shot is from the Deep Winter Photo Contest that takes place in January on Whistler and Blackcomb. The idea is that you shoot photos for three days and then make a slideshow and present it on the fourth. To put it bluntly, our team got burned this year. I still have people asking me how we got so ripped off and the answer is, I have no idea, but my team of Dave Short and Shin Campos, with help from Mark Gribbon and Rob Picard, put together a great little slide show. I think the dark mood that I was trying to evoke with the song was maybe a little too "down" for the judges. Dunno. Regardless, this shot of Shin Campos was the last shot in the slideshow.

False Creek at night.

A shot from last night from the new waterfront in front of the Olympic Village construction. I went out to shoot the Symphony of Fire fireworks last night but the shots I took on the way home were way more fun.

fireworks

Well after the Pemberton Festival last week took a day away from work, I have been running around like a chicken with cutoffs on his head trying to catch up. Adding to my is complications is a giant sized rockslide that has closed the road to Whistler and made it very difficult to do a shoot there this weekend. Luckily the clients have pushed back the dates to next week, but it still appears that this monster slide won't be cleared in time and I'll most likely have to fly. Not the worst thing in the world except for the weight restrictions on helicopters and small planes and the fact that I need to travel with a whole bunch of gear. Luckily I have lots of photographer friends in Whistler and have been sourcing gear from them.

In the middle of all this, there were
fireworks on Wednesday so T and Willie and I went for a little walk to watch things that go boom.

The summer. It is come.

As the summer finally hits in all its glory, I am swamped with work. I am convinced though, that I live in the best place in the world. My fascination with Vancouver's old buildings continues, while new ones pop up all over the place.

Here are some shots of the world around me. More coming soon. I love the Canon g9 more every day.

Waiting in the sun = never fun.

My crew for today did a pretty monster drive to get here and shoot in the sun. Unfortunately they didn't make it all the way. It's not a perfect day out there, but it's pretty nice, and I'm waiting. At least it gives me a little time to work on this last minute job that came up for this week. There is quite a bit to get organized in a short period of time so I'm doing a little scrambling. Well, to keep you occupied until then, here are some more G9 shots from around the hood last week.



Tinsletown. Watch your step.

The hood. Pretty stoked that I live here.Except that I'm in Whistler.

Flags and cranes around the Olympic village site.
