PDN 30 & Wallis Annenberg Prize & Exhibit

I'm honored to be among PDN's 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch of 2015.


Also announced was the inaugural Wallis Annenberg Prize, a partnership between The Annenberg Foundation and PDN that rewards a winner and four finalists with generous support, and I'm honored to be among the finalists.


The Annenberg Space for Photography and PDN will present Emerging, an exhibit comprised of the 2015 PDN 30 photographers as well as more than 60 others from previous years. Emerging will be held June 6 - September 2015 at the Annenberg Space for Photography in LA.

Van Isle 360

I love Canadian Geographic's interactive iPad edition--check out June's VanIsle 360 story. I spent two weeks hopping from boat to boat during this amazing race in the wild waters around Vancouver Island. Huge thanks to the crews for squeezing me into the already tight boats.

Roy Henry Vickers Collaboration

I'm honoured to be collaborating with renowned artist, Roy Henry Vickers. Roy is creating a series of three prints based on my conservation work in northern BC, a place he calls home. The first print was just released: the limited edition screen print, "Our Mother Earth" based on a photograph from the Sacred Headwaters. Only 80 prints were made, and Roy donated 20 of them to support the Salvation Fish project.

For more information and to purchase a print, please visit the Raincoast Conservation Foundation.

Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival will host the Sacred Headwaters film and exhibit, and I will present "Our Home and Native Land", a project that explores the current seismic shift in core national values in Canada—one that reduces the vast northern wilderness that has long been a celebrated part of national identity to a stockpile of natural resources. Wild & Scenic Film Festival is in Nevada City, CA on January 9th- 12th, 2014. Tickets and information

Exhibit and presentation made possible by Patagonia and iLCP.

Van Isle 360

The epic Van Isle 360 International Yacht Race around Vancouver Island was an intense two weeks of racing the fastest boats in the Pacific Northwest in the most challenging waters on the coast. I had to work hard not to become known as a bad luck charm after one boat I was on crashed into rocks and another collided with a boat. Look for this story in Canadian Geographic summer 2014. 2013 Van Isle 360 sailing race around Vancouver Island.

BC Magazine Cover

Beautiful beaches, beautiful people, and close to home. Shooting the cover for British Columbia Magazine's Best of Vancouver Beaches story wasn't a bad way to start the summer. 2013-06-01 BC Mag - Beaches
