Hello all! I know I haven’t posted in a while. Sometimes it’s just nice to take a break from everything.
I’ve been going through some photos and I always find it amazing how your feelings towards a photograph can change over time. Most of the time I look at a photo and instantly know I’m going to love it, but sometimes I’ll take a photo and it gets overlooked at the time. Then when I look through the archives I stumble across it again and I have a totally different view.
Here is one of those photos. One of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve seen over the jungles of Chitwan National Park in Nepal. We had big hopes of spotting a tiger from a distance the next day, but we saw some amazing scenery instead.
I can’t wait for our next big trip!
Happy international women’s day to all of you amazing women out there.
And a thank you to @happy_lifestyles who has been a pretty awesome woman in my life. Thank you for always being there, for chasing your dreams, for adventuring by my side and for so much more. Don’t ever stop being you.
Great times were had @redresort this weekend. We got the trail end of a storm and skied fresh lines all weekend. The terrain there is pretty incredible and it is definitely a hidden gem often overlooked. It was great catching up with old friends and making new ones. Thanks for the stellar weekend everyone!
I love coming back to some of my old photos when I’ve improved my editing process and giving them a different style. I think a photographer should always be adapting, improving and trying new things. It’s so important to keep learning no matter what you do. Here’s one of my favourite shots I’ve ever taken from Japan last year.
Sometimes it feels really good to be humbled by what’s around you. It lets you put into perspective how much bigger this planet is than you and just how beautiful it is. Our time here is just a blink of an eye compared to the grand scale of time. So enjoy every moment you are given, do what you love and don’t settle for anything less.
Even though this night was -30 degrees the Elizabeth Parker hut was so nice and cozy. Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, the views from here were hard to beat. I can’t wait to spend another night under the stars soon.
Spent an amazing two nights at the Elizabeth Parker hut with @happy_lifestyles. We got lucky with the weather and even though it was -30 we got two bluebird days in the Rockies. The hut was cozy, we met some awesome people and the views were stunning. Got a little bit of skiing in, but just getting away from everything and disconnecting for two days was wonderful. The hut is very well maintained and has anything you could need. If you’ve never been to Lake O’Hara I highly recommend checking it out and in the Winter it’s not nearly as busy!
It’s been an awesome Winter so far! After weeks of snow it’s nice to see the Sun and blue skies again. A big thanks to everyone who has made this season so great. Super excited to be heading off on a hut trip with @happy_lifestyles tomorrow to get away from everything for a few days! Will be back next week, stay safe out there everyone and enjoy the mountains. 😊🏔✌️
I’ve never posted a video before so I guess it’s better late then never! Unfortunately with photography and filming you don’t always get the shot you’re looking for. Whether it’s the light, the conditions, the weather, etc. Sometimes you have to make the best of what you’re given that day. This shot may not have turned out the way we wanted, but there is always next time! So here is a short clip of me riding a chute in the slackcountry. Thanks again for filming and yet another good day, @purcelljesse @johncantor_adventurer @awiklund349 @happy_lifestyles
I love Winter. I love that the mountains get so covered in snow that you can take two sticks or a board up them and ride down. I love how the trees get frosty and weighed down by snow, they truly look magical. I love dressing in warm cozy clothes. I love sitting around the fire after a long cold day. I love a deep pow turn. I love sharing these experiences with good friends, family and even strangers. This is my ode to Winter.
What’s your favourite season and why?
Being behind the camera I don’t often get shots of myself. Sometimes it’s nice to hand the lens over to someone else so I can enjoy doing my favourite thing. Here’s me having some fun after an awesome day touring in the slackcountry.
Thank you @johncantor_adventurer for the 📷 and everyone for the great company. @happy_lifestyles @purcelljesse @awiklund349
Japan last season was amazing. I can’t help but think about this photogenic volcano from time to time. I could definitely go for a day of overhead pow, with a bowl of hot ramen for lunch, followed by an onsen and finished off with a night of karaoke. If you ever get the opportunity to visit Hokkaido I would highly recommend it, you’ll have the time of your life!
Throwing it back to a few months ago in Nepal. The three passes was up there with one of the most amazing treks I have done so far. The food was delightful, the people were friendly and the scenery was out of this World. This was taken the evening we finished the last pass. We were all exhausted, but super high in spirits as we had accomplished what we set out to do. It was awesome to enjoy one last night above 4500m watching the icy rivers run through the rugged valleys beneath the towering mountains.
Where should my next adventure be? I would love to hear suggestions to places you’ve travelled or have heard amazing things about.
Not all missions go as planned and this photo turned out a little noisier then I would have liked, but we still had an awesome time. With intentions to photograph some skiers and snowboarders under the full moon, we got skunked with the weather and had roughly a 20 minute period where it cleared up enough. Sleeping in my first ever snow cave was in my eyes a success and a big thanks to @johncantor_adventurer for showing us the ropes. Here’s one of the shots I managed to get of Mac face looking magical in the moonlight.
Awesome day in the slackcountry showing good friends some of my old favourite spots. It’s been an amazing season so far and I feel like it’s only going to continue being awesome. @johncantor_adventurer @purcelljesse
