Patagonia | 2017 Mountain Catalog


Snowboarder Josh Driksen story in the 2017 Patagonia Catalog.
Just when I thought I knew snowboarding Josh Dirksen came in and showed me that I had a lot to learn. Dirksen showed me different ways to ride, travel safely and smoothly in the mountains using natural contours instead of forcing snowboarding into a weird state of big jumps, huge airs and violent landings that it's so known for. I think we all need mentors in life, I feel it should be a life long journey to learn new things and find people that inspire you. I certainly look up to this guy here, he is positive as all hell, a goofy footer like I am,  an encyclopedia when it comes to snowboard history/trivia and a person that has been in the sport for a long, long time.

This is a story that Patagonia put together on how Josh Dirksen spent this past season close to home and in the local hills. It is a multipage story written by Colin Wiseman and I am excited to see it come to print. It is also proof that you don't need to go to exotic places to get good snow or to have fun.

cloud, women iceland,
I'm a sucker for print, it's becoming more and more rare to see it in this digital world. Here's a couple tear sheets from Patagonia's  winter catalog and from their snow campaign. (above) Jacq Smith facing the winds head on in Iceland.

FREEMEN's World Magazine | December Issue

Hiking in the fog Freemans world magazine cover.
FREEMAN's World Magazine which is published out of Germany chose this image for their December cover art, the photo is of one of my best friends Noah Sellers hiking around in the fog a couple years back.  Freeman's is a quality magazine with some great content in there, that is if you can read ze German... 

1859 | Oregon's Magazine | December Issue

Night image of a glowing tent at the base of South Sister in Oregon.
Excited to see this image on the cover of 1859 Magazine of the December issue. This shot was up on South Sister, sometimes snow camping can be so easy and other times it can be a real test of your temperament with winds and snow flying everywhere. Other than minor frost bite on my toes (don't wear tight boots) this time camping was fairly straight forward.

Wiley X Eyewear | Visionaries | Tyler Roemer



When my friend who works on the creative department for Wiley X Eyewear approached me about doing a slice of life video I was a little hesitant. For me being behind the lens seems natural and being in front of it..well, seems awkward. Nonetheless, he basically said we can do whatever we want, so that got me thinking about all the possibilities (within reason).  Here is what we came up with, it's a behind the scenes look and a bit of a modus operandi if you will. I'm really happy with how it all came out. 

For the record, I don't see myself as a visionary, I view myself as a person who loves the outdoors with a need to create. Maybe one day when I'm 90 years old I'll be there but not today my friends.

Transworld SNOWboarding | Josh Driksen Interview

Snowboarder Josh Drikrsen.

--> Josh Dirksen makes snowboarding obtainable by finding his own rhythm in the mountains. This past season instead of going overseas to exotic locations like most of the other pros he decided to stay close to home to be near family and friends and to explore pockets of the Northwest that he has never seen or snowboarded before. In his 20+ years as a pro-snowboarder he found a sustainable way to ride and he still has his knees to prove it. Because of Dirksen’s positive attitude and surf style he is truly the snowboarders favorite snowboarder, that’s for sure. 
Below is the full interview on Dirksen's process in the November 2016 issue of Transworld SNOWboarding.

Dartmouth Alumni Magazine | Tiger Shaw

Dartmouth Alumni Magazine put me on assignment to cover Tiger Shaw who is the CEO of the US Ski and Snowboard Association and of course an Alumni of Dartmouth. We had a short time to shoot up on Timberline Resort but during that time I  got to know Tiger a little and he comes across as a driven individual with a positive outlook on life. It was interesting to get his take on the Olympics and training regiments with the athletes that he and his team work with.

You can read the full article on Tiger (here).

Transworld SNOWboarding 'Insight' Book

Every year Transworld SNOWboarding comes out with a movie highlighting some of the worlds best snowboarders, this year their movie was called 'Insight'.  I had the opportunity to chase and photograph Josh Dirksen while he filmed for his full part. His focus was on Oregon backcountry chasing down snowy windlips. Here's a look inside the 'Insight' hardcover book that Josh Dirksen and I photographed last season.

Saucony | RUNAWAYS

Photo essay saucony bend oregon.
After this past summer of tourist armageddon here in Bend I cringe at the idea of another piece on Central Oregon and "all it has to offer."  But I feel that this photo essay serves Bend well and touches on the community that lives here and not the visitors take on the town. Linsey Corbin is a sponsored athlete with Saucony and she kills it, she is an Ironman Champion and an all around great athlete. Check out the full story which includes Linsey, her husband Chris, their dog Madison and a little bit on me  (HERE).

Portland Monthly | Wallowas Opener

Portland Monthly summer issue is out now with places to backpack around the PNW. This photo of Allison K. relaxing after a long day of hiking next to Mirror Lake made the cut for the opener. Seeing this image again makes me want to get back up there to the Wallowas, it's definitely one of my favorite places in Oregon.

Transworld SNOWboarding | Insight Movie Official Trailer


Transworld snowboarding magazine movie josh dirksen.
For over 25 years Transworld SNOWboarding Magazine has been bringing us the best content in the snowboard world hands down. I remember flipping through TWS Photo Annual over 20 years ago drooling over the photos. I always dreamed about shooting with them, well this past year TWS, Josh Dirksen and myself have been working closely together for his part in the new movie called, "Insight". I have been shooting stills alongside the filmers and it has been a wild ride that's for sure. The photo above was shot around the Oregon Cascades where Dirksen and the crew discovered this rock portal where the sun was beaming though, it was definitely a surreal moment. I'm so happy to see this image make the cut for the Insight Movie.

Departures Magazine | Oregon's Old-Growth

Picnic table dining up in an old growth tree, Departures Magazine.
When Departures Magazine approached me about having a picnic and a camp 150 feet up in an old growth tree my immediate thought was, "Well, that sounds pretty hippyish." Turns out it was far from that. Writer and mountaineer Sandy Hill joined in with a few of her friends to dine and campout in a massive tree. We all met up in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in Oregon and ascended up the massive tree with some help with a group of arborist. It was good times for sure. You can read the full article written by Sandy Hill (here).

National Geographic | Extreme Photo of the Week

Christie Eastman kayaks off of White River Falls in Oregon.
Well this kayak series from 2009 always seems to make its way back in some form or another. National Geographic photo team chose this image for their, "Extreme Photo of the Week" of Christie G. Eastman kayaking around Celestial Falls on the White River in Oregon.  It's always exciting to get the National Geographic nod of approval.

Travel Oregon guide

Hiker in the Eagle Cap Wilderness area in the Wallowas next to Joseph Oregon.
Always love seeing the annual Travel Oregon visitor guide come to life. Here are a couple images that made the cut, I like the new look that Travel Oregon is going with in their travel guide. I found that Travel Oregon isn't afraid to take chances and I think the majority of the tourism industry can learn a thing or two from these guys.

BEND Magazine

Flyfishing Mckenzie River Bend Oregon.
Happy to see this photo land on the cover of Bend Magazine. I shot this years ago when we were flyfishing on the McKenzie River. The Mckenzie holds some pretty stellar clear water but the water clarity means that fish can see you too, so fishing can be a a bit of a challenge. No one likes to eat trout anyways, so it's all good. :)
