Shooting a Documentary about Salmon Farming along BC’s Coast

without comments

I just got back from a two week documentary film trip up and down Vancouver Island. I was kindly asked to tag along with Tyler and Alex of SK Films . We were shooting a TV episode about salmon aquaculture and it’s effects on local wild salmon stocks along the coast. It was a fascinating trip filled with up close encounters with 3 pods of killer whales, hundreds of dolphins, a bunch of grizzly bears and one too many small town pizza subs. We shot some awesome footage so be sure to check it out when the episode airs in March on TVO

Check out the episode and Alex Mifflin’s Huffington Post article.

Ben Howard @ The Commodore

without comments

The past few months I’ve been able to get quite a bit of adventuring and surfing in up and down the coast of California, Oregon and BC. I’ve been doing a lot of living out of a snug (but unrelentingly , sandy) sleeping bag. Ben Howard’s “Old Pine” sums up the vibe pretty well. I’d entirely forgotten about the show, so I was pleasantly surprised to get a last minute photo pass. It came complete with a 3 girl brawl, a Coachella hitchhiker reunion and a free beer.

Black Tusk via Garabaldi Lake

with 2 comments

A few photos from a last minute overnight trek to Garabaldi lake and then up Black Tusk. Asides from a minor chili explosion on a Macgyvered meth stove fashioned out of a beer-can/wire coat hanger, it was an awesome beautiful trek (as always). Temperatures dipped well below freezing overnight and there was fresh snow /ice on the cinder cone.

…so long summer

1911 Model R “Stanley Steamer” Steam Car

without comments

My friend Dan Findlay is a bit of a car nut. He’s been collecting, restoring and fixing up classic cars since he was a kid. In high-school he acquired his first Ford Model T. He recently pushed things even further when he called me up and told me about his latest acquisition… a 1911 Stanley Steamer.

We took it for a boot down to the beach were we realized our water tank was running low (it burns through about a gallon of water per mile). After filling up with the garden hose at a random strangers garden party, we were off again.

It takes a good 20 minutes to build up enough steam to get moving, easily catches on fire and it isn’t the most fuel efficient vehicle on the road, but it’s a s**t ton of fun to drive around… and it comes with a steam whistle 🙂

In the manual, it tells you if when the car catches fire, increase the speed until the flames blow out.

Retro Tandem Bike / Cruiser Restoration Project

with one comment

Back in February my aunt told me she had on old tandem cruiser sitting in storage getting rusty. Knowing that I like bizarre projects she thought I should come pick it up. So I stripped it down to bare metal, primed, painted, and put it back together. It comes with brand new seats, new handlebars, and a coconut drink coozy.

If you’re interested in picking up a vintage tandem cruiser in fully restored condition, shoot me an email.
