Behind the Scenes Article in Jack Magazine: Italy


This is something that I've been working on for the past couple of months, and alas, now I can finally talk about. I went to my mailbox yesterday and opened it to find a box full of the newest Jack Magazine from Italy.

After my 3D Kayak shoot with Tao Berman last summer for Red Bull, I was contacted by the editors of Jack. They wanted to run an article on the technology and behind the scenes details of the shoot.


Jack Magazine is Italy's largest popular technology magazine. (Think Maxim blended with Popular Mechanics). And while I might not be able to read Italian, I'm super stoked on the tremendous exposure from this. If you'd like to read the general logistics of the article, visist the write up on the Red Bull Illume website HERE.

Thanks to everyone at Jack Magazine and Red Bull for working with me on this. I'm tremendously honored.

Kip Garre 1973-2011


The ski world was rocked again this past week with the tragic passing of Kip Garre and his girlfriend Allison Kreutzen. I unfortunately never got the chance to meet Allison. However, I was blessed to be able to hang out, travel and ski with Kip over the years. He was an incredible person who's stoke for life was contagious and will be greatly missed.

To take a line from the blog of fellow ski photographer Alex O'Brien, "I'm starting to feel like this blog is an obituary page to friends that I have lost." As I look at my own blog now, I have to say that mine is starting to resemble the same. While that's not what I was hoping to acomplish when I first stated this blog, I still feel it necessary to pay tribute to my friends that have passed while chasing their dreams.

Rather than post a blog entry about what happened to Kip and Allison or my feelings on the subject, I'm going to keep this simple. Here are some of my favorite photos I got to take of Kip over the years.

Kip, I'm gonna miss you buddy.
