The stark beauty of the white bark, the symmetry of the vertical trunks, and the depth of what one can see.This led to the inspiration to find a section of trail that would let me shoot long lens into the depths to create an image like this. i have shot cornering through aspen before with success, but nothing as stealthily striking as this one of matt Hunter weaving his way through the airspace of an aspen grove in Kamloops, BC.BiographyI grew up on Vancouver's North Shore and continue to live here with my wife and daughters. Mountain biking in the moody forests of the North Shore inspired me to become a photographer and I have been lucky to call it my career for more than seventeen years.I feel fortunate to have been able to shoot the evolution of freeride mountain biking alongside some of the sport's greatest athletes, for the most progressive brands, in locations all over the planet.My motivation as a photographer is similar to that of why I chose to ride. The trails that exist on our planet will take you to incredible places with breath-taking scenery and striking light. They will take a lifetime to discover, session, and photograph.I find photography at an incredible place these days, for the digital evolution has made it more accessible and successful for more people. Furthermore, action sports are blossoming across the world and as a result, we are seeing such incredibly progressive accomplishments in the photographic arts and it leaves me constantly inspired and stoked to keep trying out new techniques and ideas.
