Dangling high above her, I find shapes, patterns and colours only to realize that I am in the presence of a far greater artist than I will ever be, Mother Earth.

These images, mostly taken at summer camps, are sold in order to fundraise to send children from low income homes to outdoors camps as well.

Four desperate twenty-somethings,
A cheap van,
And no clue..
Like oil and water, a Canadian and a Brazilian attempt the first crossing of British Colombia by Powered Paraglider, following the epidemic spread of the Mountain Pine Beetle. What they ultimately discover has nothing to do with insects.

One summer, four young men chose to travel across their country by skateboard to raise funds and awareness for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

This is their story.
Push For The Cure
Only in my wildest dreams ..a Vol-Biv (fly camp) connecting the mighty Slocan and Columbia Valleys.
Inspired by many great adventurers, pushing the boundaries of this niche sport, this was my first time going at it solo and I am still ecstatically grateful at the result.
Thank you for sharing this with me. <3 Ben
