Storm chaser

Met up with Hunter last May and shot these in about 15 minutes before we were nearly blown across The Great Salt Lake. With a storm on our heals, Hunter was still ready and willing to shoot. Really cool dude. Excited to see what he does in Tokyo in 2020.

Back in black

I had been wanting to get Olympic alpine ski racer, Steven Nyman, back in front of my lens for the longest time. I first photographed him (along with his brothers and the Hale sisters) back in 2006 for a magazine article and I let my nerves and lack of experience behind the camera get the best of me. Feeling defeated, I only hoped I might get another chance to work with him in the future.

That chance finally came.

More sweat than snow

We shot up in Park City, Utah, where I had tapped up white seamless paper to the backside of a local business (permission granted) to create an instant studio.

He was a champ, enduring the 85+ degree summer heat in black leggings and ski boots and up for anything.

TWENTY-ONE // Hockey player, Marc Cantin


MOTO

"I live my life with a hardworking mentality. I'm a firm believer that success and anything worth achieving is never given but earned."

HEROES

"For me, a hero isn't someone who becomes an overnight sensation or someone who attains a level of greatness in their craft but someone who influences those around them, at all times, to be better. For me, that person is my father."

ACHIEVEMENT

"My first memory of achievement was [when I was] drafted into the OHL [Ontario Hockey League] as a 15-year-old."
