When approached by Myles Williamson and Cole Hooper, leaders of the Thompson Rivers University Ski and Snowboard Club to shoot photos for the organization, I was incredibly excited. Capturing media for a growing group of passionate athletes to promote a university club? I’M IN. What got me even more pumped, however, was their request. I was tasked with content not just of the action events, but also lifestyle photography for the club’s apparel line. As more of a landscape photographer, these requests were just outside my comfort zone, which is exactly why I said yes. Not just in photography, taking risks and stepping out of your usual pattern is critical for progression. (click here to see what I did to step out of my comfort zone).
Over the course of this year, this partnership has produced some incredible work. From club ski days to live music fundraisers, OutHere has done it all. In fact, Thompson Rivers University played host to the first on-campus big air invitational ski competition. Riders from British Columbia and beyond came to TRU to show off their skills on skis and boards. Though issues arose the morning of the event, dedicated volunteers managed to fix the glitches and pull off a memorable event for all. Following are some of my favourite photos from the year’s collaboration with Myles, Cole, and the whole OutHere team.
