Watch this. ‘Nuf said. Hat tip to my buddy Scotty R. for for pointing me to this piece.

UPDATE: Hmmm… The Vimeo version is no longer posted, so you’ll have to use this link to see it at the Arc’teryx website.

I was shown this preview for “All.I.Can.” by my buddy Ian this week and wanted to share it here with you. I’ve seen a lot of ski movies, but this creates a fresh look and feel to the footage using time lapse. Can’t wait to see the whole thing when it is released. For all those mountain goers out there, pray for snow!

Just a little something sweet that caught my eye recently… The Matrix meets surfing. You can read more about the Rip Curl project using 52 Canon DSLRs and behind the scenes info over at PetaPixel. Have a great weekend!

Final series installment of images from Kauai features some surf images from a break at Poipu Beach, and then some snaps from a little stroll into the forest for some cliff and rope swing action at Kipu Falls. Just a reminder of good life rule to follow:  Do not jump off cliffs or rope swings into water if you cannot swim. Period. Even on vacation in Kauai. You may miss your luau. Long story short, our group had to Hasselhoff three — yes, three people from the same family — from drowning in less than an hour. Crazy. Anyway back to the photographs… Enjoy!

A couple shout outs in this Stuff post to two Seattle photographers that I am lucky enough to also call friends. The first, above, is a 3D photo by photographer Ian Coble of whitewater kayaker Tao Berman, so bust out the red and green glasses and head over to Ian’s blog to learn more about his first foray into creating 3D images, or view the image larger on his website. Remember to vote you want a more behind-the-scenes look at how to create the 3D images!

Continued after the jump

Continuing a string of recent editorial photo assignments that required some serious safety gear and liability waivers to be signed, I found myself getting a glimpse of the storied circus act — the flying trapeze — at Emerald City Trapeze Arts in Seattle. I followed a couple newbies through ‘ground school’ and their first attempts to fly and a couple regulars working to progress.

MORE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP…

Every summer I make a return to my childhood stomping grounds with trip to Curlew Lake in Northeast Washington to see family and friends, and take sometime to recharge. During the annual pilgrimage, I always take time to make a few images of my friends as they enjoy water sports. For this year’s session I decided to have some fun and set up a couple Speedlights on the boat’s tower and head out into the fading light. Two boats, a couple of radios and pre-communication between boat drivers and we had ourselves a set. Came back with a couple of nice images to stoke out the boys, and some fresh ideas for producing a full photo shoot in the future. More images after the jump… Enjoy!

Fresh off the press in the July issue of Seattle Met is a piece I photographed on tree climbing. Now I’ve climbed many trees growing up as a free-range child in Eastern Washington and even spent my fair share of time tied to a rope on a rock wall, but this was my first time on a rope ascending into a tree.

By far the coolest thing I ran across this week is a piece of videojournalism/art  — FREE FALL: World champion freediver Guillaume Nery’s special dive at Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the world filmed entirely on breath hold by the French champion Julie Gautier.

It is not all shot during a single breath but over four sessions, but no oxygen tanks were used even by the camera operator, and was filmed entirely by the duo on a Canon 5D Mark II. You can read more at Guillaume’s blog. Enjoy!

Wow. Blaine Lints loves to run. Seriously — LOVES to run. The high school junior is an aspiring ultramarathoner and endurance athlete, with already 60 miles of continuous running on his resume, he has his sights set on 130 miles in 24 hours during a Relay For Life event in Seattle at the end of May. More photos after the jump…
