"The Revelstoke Diaries"  goes behind the scenes of the ski town of Revelstoke in British Columbia, Canada.

Nestled in the heart of British Columbia, Revelstoke was originally founded in the 1880s when the Canadian Pacific Railway was built in the area - where the railroad still plays an integral part of the township.

Renowned for it's high annual snowfall, the development of Revelstoke Mountain Resort in 2007, has since transformed the small town into a global mecca for adventurers.

A traditional and hardworking mountain town, with stunning natural scenery all around and endless outdoor activities, The Revelstoke Diaries focuses on the people that make the place.

We speak with Canadians who reflect different aspects of mountain life - and are proud to call Revelstoke their home - seeing how the community is united by their own passion for adventure and love for the great outdoors.

Taking a different perspective to traditional ski films; we speak with a local train driver, professional adventurers and environmental activists, a retiree, an entrepreneur, musicians, an artist, a police officer, a night groomer and more...

The Revelstoke Diaries aims to encapsulate the essence of life in this stunning and remote adventure paradise through the gaze of the local.s.

Featuring, Chris Pawlitsky, Greg Hill, Izzy Lynch, Bill Pollock, Kelsey Adam, Mark Baron, Shred Kelly, Leah Allison, Faron Ling, Kristy Whale and Gnorm the Powder Gnome.

This short film is also complimented by a nine episode web series, with extended footage from each interview.

"Seeking Asgard: Ski Life Stories from Iceland", a documentary film and photography project that explores Icelandic ski culture from a human interest perspective; getting to know the personal stories of some of the countries most pioneering outdoor industry figures - all of whom have helped to push the boundaries of skiing in Iceland to new levels, through adventure, exploration and hard work.

 

Shot in April 2022 over three weeks, we circumnavigated the country holding interviews in all four corners of Iceland - travelling to Ísafjörður in the West, Eskifjörður in the East, Dalvik in the North and Reykjavík in the South, covering over 3000km.

 

The series of interviews focuses on personal stories - including relationships between fathers and sons, female empowerment in the outdoor industry, overcoming life threatening injuries and conversations around the effects and impact climate change is having on the country as a whole - and ski industry specifically.

 

Showcasing the sport in various ways, interviews take place on sail boats, shorelines and mountain tops as we also celebrate the passion and deep rooted connection Icelanders hold for the natural environment.

Featuring Guðmundur Jakobsson, Einar Sveinbjörnsson, Inga Fanney Sigurðardóttir, Erla Guðný Helgadóttir, Jökull Bergmann, Sven Brunso, Sævar Guðjónsson, Sigurdur Jonsson and Annukka Pekkarinen, 

This film was supported on Kickstarter, with sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to a successful crowdfunding campaign to help bring the project to life. 

Walking the Wainwrights

I was born and raised in Cumbria and whilst I've summited a few peaks in the local fells over the years, I wanted to start afresh and take on the full 'Wainwright Challenge'...

 

So as of summer 2023, I'm setting out to retrace the footsteps of acclaimed fellwalker, guidebook author and illustrator, Alfred Wainwright - famed for his seven-volume pictorial guide to the Lakeland Fells - which has become the standard reference to walk the 214 fells of the English Lake District.

 

I decided to bring my camera along and capture my experience of rediscovering the county of my birth through these walks, creating a YouTube series incorporating 36 walking circuits covering each fell top. 

 

To begin, I headed out on a Sunday evening in late May to start with The Greater Grisedale Horseshoe - combining the hike with my first solo bivy camp - and sleeping out under the stars on top of Helvellyn in absolutely perfect conditions - though not everything went according to plan...!

With another 205 Wainwrights on the list, subscribe to my YouTube channel to follow my journey through the Lake District National Park.
