Classic pow style from the wizard Shin Campos.
Well now that the holiday’s are over and I have come out of my Turkey/Crown Royal stuppor you will start to see a little more action around the blog. The newest Snowboard Canada just dropped with a feature I put together last spring. We spent a couple nights camping up on the Pemberton Ice Cap with a great crew consisting of Shin Campos, Martin Gallant, Joel Loverin, Tyler Chorlton and Kareem El Rafie.The snow conditions were less then ideal but we managed to put together a couple shots for the story. I think everyone had to buy new skis after this trip as we hit a few km’s of dirt on the access road but it was all worth it in the end. So if you haven’t picked up a copy yet make sure you do but for now you can check out the recent tear sheets from Mark Gribbon Photography below.
Some great news came down the wire the other day, Shin and I won top prize in the Out of Bounds Photo Competition! I went and checked out the opening of the show, and all the entries were top notch, I really am honoured that I was chosen by the judges, Thank’s so much.
I have been on a bit of a contest spree lately. I posted earlier about the PDN contest, and thought I would take a chance with this new one called THE OPEN. Turns out the shot of Shin made photo of the day on their blog. Thanks so much guys, make sure you check out the contest there is such a great variety of shots in it already.
Above is a shot of Shin from the same day, we need some snow I am itching to get out there. Click through the links to see what I have in the contest.
One of my new clients is opening up a exciting new practice in West Vancouver. To kick off her new practice and space ,Dr. Carla Cupido is hosting a fundraiser tonight at the Beach House Restaurant for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Goodtimes. Amongst the impressive list of items up for auction is one of my favorite images of Shin Campos. I know how important camp was in my upbringing. It taught me how to appreciate the outdoors, fishing, hiking, and making-out in the trees. All things I still enjoy doing these days. So if you are in the neighborhood stop by and check out the auction and help send a kid to camp.
Push has started a new series called living legends that they are producing right now. They dropped the first one with Dennis Bannock a little while back, and they just put out another one with Shin Campos recently. They are both packed with interesting interviews from a assortment of characters that have been around the Canadian snowboard scene for a while and are worth checking out. Nice work boys.
I just received my copy of the Playboard photo annual and I am so excited to have the cover. I shot this while out with the 8mile crew in Pemberton last winter, Shin came out for the day and warmed up with this method. As well I just updated my website with a new layout and images, my blog has also changed to Word Press so if you want to keep up with what is going on with me this winter you will have to change it in your blog reader.
See you in the mountains!
