I'm a photographer, product designer, brand crafter and entrepreneurial creative in pursuit of froth-worthy experiences. I love documenting fly fishing, exploring the backcountry and taking photographs of people when they’re at their peak stoke levels.
Channelling a brand’s ethos, capturing it in film and sharing that with others inspires me immensely.
Where is home base?
Vancouver, British Columbia (but available —and stoked—for worldwide travel)
When & where do you create:
From my former home —Austin, Texas—to my current neck of the woods in British Columbia, I'm always on the hunt for a story to tell. Sometimes shoots are planned, and sometimes they just happen spontaneously. When I’m not in the field, you can find me on my search for the best cup of coffee in Vancouver.
Originally a Canon guy, I currently shoot primarily on the Sony mirrorless platforms. I also have access to more robust systems like hand-held and vehicle-mounted RED Digital Cinema cameras. And when the job calls for it, water housings.
Maybe I would add a Leica SL into the mix? (Leica—call me).
Smithers, British Columbia. The rivers and mountains of the Skeena watershed are still wonderfully wild. And the anadromous steelhead still thrive there. If you haven’t been—go. It’s a bit hard to get to (15-hour drive north of Vancouver), but that’s what makes it so special.
Who is the lady in the picture?
That’s my better half, Linds. You can often find us chasing steelhead together and camping in our 1988 Toyota Landcruiser, Tom Cruiser.
What does your ideal project look like?
I’m excited about anything that makes people feel thrilled and alive. And I’m a sucker for thoughtfully-designed products. Beyond that, give me a strong cup of coffee and we’ll make it work. Shoot me a note and let’s chat about your project.
What brands support you? Who have you worked with?
I’ve been very fortunate to work with brands that align with me personally like Gerber Gear, YETI, Suunto, Leatherman, Hatch Outdoors, Lululemon, Winston Fly Rods, Dish & DUER, Scientific Anglers, Simms Fishing, Loon Outdoors, Howler Brothers, Zeal Optics, Big Agnes, Arctic Zone, Islander Reels, Honey Stinger, Ciele Athletics, f-stop Gear, Tourism Whistler and others.
