Tantalus Range - Beers, Birthdays & Bacon!

Klemen celebrating the good life!

My friend, Klemen Mali, an adventurer,  accomplished climber and mountain guide with Climb The Peaks turned 40 this year! And holding true to his adventurous spirit, he decided to host his party in the Tantalus Range with the Jim Haberal Hut as our accommodation and a helicopter for transportation. No 40th birthday party would be complete without a Keg of beer and all the meat you can eat including Bacon with every meal! The weekend started with a bit of uncertainty whether we would be able to land the helicopters or not, but the weather changed and we even managed to get a climb of Mt. Dione in. Can't wait to return to this place!

 

Bikram Yoga - Barrie

I ventured out east this spring and while I was there I managed to get some shooting time in at the Bikram Yoga studio in Barrie, Ontario. Everyone was so excited to be a part of this special session that studio owner Meghan H. had scheduled. I was welcomed into their practice and studio for an intense sweat. It was a ton of fun, and I was super impressed at the level of concentration, determination and focus everyone had while I ran around them and between them shooting away. Here are some of the results. You can check out their website here, or their facebook page, or give them a visit if you are in the area. The studio is gorgeous and really makes you want to be a part of the group there!!

Canine Valley Re-education and Adventure Centre

Canine Valley

Recently I have had the chance to work with an amazing organization here in Squamish. CVRAC is a non-profit organization who rescues dogs from different backgrounds. Some have been abused, neglected, poorly socialized, have been in traumatic events, or have never been properly trained. CVRAC has 5-6 rescue dogs at any one time living at the Centre, and are dedicated to the re-education of these dogs as well as other dogs in the community who also have behavioural problems The CVRAC centre provides activities, equipment and education necessary to balance people and their dogs. Over the past few months I have spent many days with my camera shooting the various activities, the handlers and the dogs, and have been spending some time taking some of the dogs on hikes up in the mountains. This experience has been so rewarding and I'm so grateful to be a part of such a great team with such amazing people who love what they do! Here are some of my fave shots.
