Rider of the year awards

Patrick Camberlain of formerly YGP and more recently the Tribe riders has come up with the ‘Rider of the year awards’ . This is a yearly competition to celebrate whitewater kayaking in all it’s forms and recognize some of the key players in the progression of our sport.There are a variety of different awards from the best freestyle move, which will be a video submission to the more subjective rider of the year which will be peer voted.

Hopefully this concept will grow for Pat and will gain the support required to become an annual event that grows and continues for years to come. Working in Whistler I often get to go to all the contests and similar set ups in the snowsports industry and often wish kayaking had some sort of similar platform. Well here it is….. Great idea Pat….

On a personal level , I was pretty excited because I got invited to submit photos to the ‘photographer of the year’ section. This is super exciting as it is an opportunity for all the amazing whitewater photogs to showcase their work next to each other. Great to see the talent pool of photography that exists within our fringe sport that in reality has little to no financial potential for a photographer.

Seasons web tv series

Bryan Smith of Reel Water Productions and Fitz Cahall began this Spring to produce a Web TV series chronicaling the Lives of five Adventure Athletes through the ups and downs of an adventure lifestyle.

They have just released the trailer……….22 more episodes to come…….

Here is the low down….

The Season. Five lives. A world of possibility.

From the creators of The Dirtbag Diaries and 49 Megawatts comes a new web television project following five athletes through the course of a single season in the Pacific Northwest. A veteran climber invents a new piece of gear.  A pro snowboarder searches for a way to return to the roots of his sport.  A boulderer returns from a series of injuries with new perspective.  A family man goes to Whistler to test himself against mountain biking’s elite. A young sea kayaker with a troubled past sets out to reinvent his sport.

Shot entirely in HD, this 22-episode series is available to you for free at a number of locations. Every episode premieres on the Arc’teryx web site.   You can have the HD version delivered right to your computer and find all the old episodes by subscribing on iTunes. Expect new episodes once or twice a week.

Web 2.0 WTF ?

without comments

Well, to be honest, it has been a longtime coming, I have been avoiding it for ages, convincing myself that it isn’t worth the bother…….

Maybe it isn’t, maybe I have just been reading far too much Chase Jarvis of late ! Anyway for better or for worse, I thought I may aswell enagage with the wacky world of web 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 wherever it is at nowadays and see what all the fuss is about.

The shooting has been as varied as the weather  this winter, with me covering everything from skiing in the back country to kids groups to general Whistler stock.

This winter has only been my second year on skis and it has been a steep learning curve to say the least. Not that I am complaining, it has been amazing , ever day has been an adventure and despite Whistler having a less than stella snow year, I have had a ball. I am already excited about next winter !!

So is this blog worth reading ? Who knows, hopefully I can post some ok images to look at and pass on any interesting goings on in the world of web 2.0..
