Snowboarder Josh Dirksen | Patagonia Clothing

This past winter season Josh Dirksen and a crew of us searched high and low for good snow where we split-boarded and camped deep in the backcountry, eating dehydrated meals that sucked the water from us, waking up early to get after the limited winter light. Usually, we were extremely excited when it snowed one to two inches and satisfied when we could keep an edge... but hey, those are the cards that we were dealt with this past winter and we had a lot of fun making the most out of it.

Red Bulletin | Lower Lewis Falls

Kayaker Drew Eastman drops off of the 43 foot tall Lower Lewis Falls in Washington.
The August issue of The Red Bulletin just hit the shelves with this double page spread of kayaker Drew Eastman bombing off of Lower Lewis Falls in Washington. I shot this years ago, I waded in knee deep cold water waiting in anticipation for Drew and his wife Cristina Eastman to spill over the falls. The both of them made it over the falls unscathed but Christina's brother on the other hand ended up bashing his arm and breaking his paddle in two. In the end he was fine, just a little worked over. 

 Drew and Cristina both made a small appearance in Patagonia's movie Damnation, worth the watch for sure.

Basin & Range National Monument

Basin and Range National Monument, Barack Obama, The white house
This past Friday President Barack Obama announced that he is making the Basin and Range land in Nevada into a National Monument. Basin and Range National Monument will be over 700,000 acres for the public to enjoy, it was an honor to help protect and photograph these important lands with support from Conservation Lands Foundation. This monument was selected along with two other national monuments on Friday to protect American landscape, native artwork and heritage.

Crazy to think that these photos made it to the President and the White House.

Two covers, one legend: Dean Potter

Rock and Ice magazine with Dean Potter on the cover. Issue 228 August 2015.
Well I always wanted to get the cover of Rock and Ice magazine but not with these unfortunate circumstances. Dean Potter as most of you know lost his life wing-suit flying in Yosemite National Park off of Taft Point with Graham Hunt on May 16th 2015, he was 43 years old. I always viewed Dean as the black sheep of the outdoor climbing world, not caving into other's world views. He truly did what he wanted to do in life, I didn't know Dean well but his actions spoke louder than words. Dean made a lot of people upset with his outdoor antics by scoffing at rules and regulations and by doing so he aroused conversation about what you should and shouldn't do in the outdoors, making him a controversial outdoor athlete figure.

(Above) Dean Potter in the August 2015 issue of Rock and Ice with a tribute to Graham Hunt and his life. I really enjoyed reading the 'Editors Note' where Jeff Jackson called out one of New York Times authors for not knowing what he was writing about. Journalistic integrity or op-ed piece from the NYT's?  I will let you be the judge of that one (here).

FREERIDE Magazine | Jamie Goldman

FREERIDE Magazine out of Germany went to print with this image of Jamie Goldman styling it out. Jamie has had one crazy year, he broke his neck in Mexico in a downhill competition, had a beautiful daughter and started fabricating high quality bike ramps. He is now back on his bike after his injury and is really doing well, with plans on coaching biking this summer the future is bright for this one.

Dean Potter | Men's Journal

Men's Journal article on Dean Potter's final flight.
     A tribute piece on the late Dean Potter found in July issue of Men’s Journal.

     I didn’t know Dean well, I think there are only a handful of people that truly did know him. From the short time that I hung out with Dean I found him to be relaxed, cool, calm, and calculated. 

    This image was shot with an old Polaroid of Dean in 2012 at Smith Rock in Oregon. At the time he insisted that his dog Whisper be in the shot, when the camera was pulled up his dog posed like a she was on a senior portrait shoot. Out of the multiple shots taken that day this image stood out to me because of Dean’s genuine smile and look of contentment.

Competitor Magazine | Bend, Oregon

Trail runners along the Deschutes River, Bend Oregon.
Competitor Magazine sent writer Mario Frailoi and me out to capture and speak about Bend's cult running culture for their June issue. Seems like we hit all types of weather on this assignment, snow, wind, rain and the occasional sunshine blast.

Mountain Outlaw Magazine | Mexico

Carson Storch bikes in the small town of Real de Catorce, Mexico found in the new issue of Mountain Outlaw MagazineThis photo has been locked away for a while now so it's nice to it surface. Carson had so many flat tires from the cactus and the rugged landscape on this trip that I thought we were going to run out of spares.

Spectacle - Backcountry Magazine

Colby Richards makes a turn with his snowboard below a sulfur cloud in Hokkaido Japan.
In Japan it is common to eat fish for breakfast, which I found hard to do especially if the fish still has it's head on it. Colby Richards (pictured here) ate his fishy power breakfast by landing a double binder in the February issue of Backcountry Magazine. This was photographed in Hokkaido Japan's slackcountry/backcountry.

The Cleanest Line - Patagonia - Basin & Range

Proposed Basin and Range National Monument in Nevada - Patagonia Cleanest Line
The landscape of Nevada's Great Basin country is one of those places that I have grown to love. At first site these huge basins come across as dusty and desolate harsh areas with a feeling of nothingness. I still think there is a lot of nothing in these huge landscapes and they are harsh as hell but I also think that there are a lot of hidden gems in them as well.

The Conservation Lands Foundation sent us out to photograph this area for a week, their goal was to capture the vastness of the area and propose it as a future Monument. Ultimately, these photos are to be seen by politicians and the president who signs off on National Monuments. 

There were times on the trip where we thought we were going to get the rig stuck on the rugged roads and have to walk 100 plus miles to civilization. Obviously, we made it out but if you plan on making a journey out here make sure you are prepared for anything, Nevada will throw you some curve balls at you.

[ FRAMES ] SUP the Mag

Jacq Smith stand up paddle boards next to a dock around the Yucatan Peninsula in Sup the Mag.
Excited to see this image run in the Spring issue of SUP the MAG. This image of Jacq Smith was shot on the east coast of Mexico where the crocodiles lurk. We didn't see any crocs but that doesn't mean they are not lurking around the area. Give the caption a read, personally I think it says quite a bit about the Yucatan.
