My specialization? Being in the right place at the right time. My home base is Calgary, Alberta, but I’ve covered every snowy corner of the globe in the past twenty years. It all started by shooting skiing on backcountry adventures. Seven Powder magazine covers early in my career launched a lifetime of photographing firsts: First photo crews to use cats, snowmobiles, and helis in British Columbia’s backcountry. First to document snowboarding and skiing in Valdez (Alaska), Nepal, Greenland, and Bella Coola. As senior photographer for Transworld Snowboarding magazine over sixteen years, I clocked endless global trips, countless images, and one badly abused liver!
The words I live by? Don’t take things too seriously. (Sometimes this gets me in trouble because I’ll crack a joke, usually at the wrong time.) But don’t lose the ability to laugh at yourself and see the humor in hard times. Also, I appreciate all the opportunities I have had and all the crazy places my camera has taken me. I’ll never take these for granted.
