The life of an action sports photographer demands top performance outdoor products. These brands keep me in motion,
so I can concentrate on imagery.
My mobility is my job security. I often joke that I chase professional athletes around mountains with a bay window’s worth of glass in my backpack. Keeping me and that glass safe is paramount. F-stop designs gear with only the outdoor action sport photographer in mind. They’re ergonomic, functional, durable, and enables me to move in any terrain.
The ‘SB’ in ‘SB6C’ stands for Super Bike, however I think that accolade falls short for this ride, so I refer to mine as a Space Bike from the future. It’s light lightest, most nimble bike I’ve ever owned. The spec on any build is remarkable, the only thing I upgraded out of the box was the front chain ring to an ovular OneUp ring.
A professional ski photographer skis almost all the terrain he shoots. I just may not flip cliffs with a camera on my back. G3 keeps me at speed with any athlete on their Carbon skis that preform great, and the remarkably well thought out Ion binding. Functionality at the forefront!
Years ago I stood in an underground MEC store in Calgary with my father as he picked out a baby blue backpack. Wide eyed I stared I loved the colour and the scale of the store, years later they now support me as a MEC Envoy. Their waterproof outer ware, merino base layers, sleeping bags and tents facilitate my movement everywhere I go.
