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. :)

BIKE Mag | Cam McCaul

National Geographic | Extreme Photo of the Week

National Geographic extreme photo of the week, mountain bike in snow, backflip, Carson Storch.
Excited to see pro-biker and good friend Carson Storch flipping his way into National Geographic, "Extreme Photo of the Week." We shot this on Thanksgiving Day in Redmond, Oregon. It was set up perfectly for us where we shoveled the snow off and Carson was jumping in not time.  

Check out the article (HERE).

Bicycling Magazine | Carl Decker

Carl Decker plows through a icy puddle with his Subaru rally car.
Bicycling Magazine sent me out with professional mountain biker Carl Deckerto photograph his side project, rally racing. The backstory with Carl is that he has raced this car in the X-Games competing with the big dogs of the sport. For Carl it's basically a cool hobby when he is not biking.

I thought I knew cars; I don't. Seriously, I haven't been this frightened or car sick in a while, Carl drove us down single one lane snowy road and I thought we were going to wrap around a tree at 70mph and die. I had no clue that you could drive that fast in snow in such sketchy conditions.

(Pictured above) Carl Decker blasts though an icy puddle with his rally car.
