A few photographs from the recent kayak workshop in Addy, WA, just north of Spokane. Since it’s the only workshop we regularly do away from the sea, the participants of this workshop mostly opted to build the new 12′ Inlander kayak, designed by Seawolf collaborator Patrick Farneman. Hosted in the giant shop at the Woodworker Network.
One of our highlights last year was building kayaks in wintry Cumbria, England. This year we’ll have less sheep but more brave men and women working on boats, and conveniently near London! Here are a few photos from last year’s workshop, as well as details for this coming one.
Dates Offered: August, 2014
Location: John’s Boathouse, London, UK
Maximum Class Size: 8 People
Costs: £1600 with £800 deposit to reserve. Includes: All kayak building materials. All large and group tools (you will be required to bring a small amount of hand tools). More information at www.seawolfkayak.com, for registration and London details please email email@example.com.
Au Magazine is Aurora Photo‘s quarterly publication, an amazing collection of shots by the best in adventure and stock photography. This quarter I’m humbled to be among the featured photographers alongside some amazing talents, covering combat photography to fine art. I’m also sad to say goodbye to longtime Aurora Director of Photography Peter Dennen, who has with this final issue moved into photo consulting with Pedro+Jackie.
The last three months of shooting and gathering elements for the photographic ALIVE series have been an absolute blast. I wanted to bring you along for the ride, so check out this 4 minute behind-the-scenes video of the campaign!
Hey all, just returned from Hawaii to discover my interview with Mike Williams of Deadpoint Magazine, or DPM. This issue covers some great climbers (Ashima and Jimmy Webb), as well as four glorious double spreads of my photos from the ROCK series.
If you want a great inside look at how those images were made and don’t mind me rambling about artistic vision, then take a look inside! I talk about technical ability vs vision, production, and compositing adventure images. Oh, and you must excuse the Papyrus font– like adventure, sometimes it just happens.
Interview with Deadpoint Magazine
Hey friends, it’s been a intense few days! My assistant Dalton and I were up at 8500 ft in the Enchantment Lakes shooting a new campaign about wilderness survival. More on that later, but I thought I’d share with you some of the gear preparations it takes to go up and shoot at elevation in the mountains in the winter. Shooting up there can be really challenging but the landscapes are truly mind-blowing and the mountain goats unbelievably persistent. Makes me miss my days running survival courses in Oregon. So what did we pack and how the hell did we get our packs down to 35lbs each while carrying all our camera gear and delicious food? Continue reading
Hey folks, my new commercial photo studio
is opening next weekend in Seattle, on November 9th. Also opening is the exhibition for the ROCK series. If you are local, time to step away from the computer or off the crag and stop by for some wine and cheese!

FStoppers interviewed me about my recent series on rock climbing, called ROCK.
It made me think hard about the the vision and production behind my favorite work to date. I also talk about the struggle between the limitations of documentary photography and the necessity of artistic invention.
