Starting to weave through photos from the Bike Magazine Bible shoot in Sedona, AZ this past fall.  This place just encourages the odd and spiritual.

Thanks for the share mpdrolet.  Heading back up to Alaska in two weeks for another basecamp ski expedition, looking forward to more moments like these.

Also spent 5 days shooting the 14/15 line of outerwear for Outdoor Research up at Rogers Pass and in the Monashees.  Always grateful when things line up like this, it has been a good last few weeks.

Had a good morning out with the Revelstoke Ski Patrol a couple days ago for an assignment with Patagonia.  Lots more to share later.

Currently: A day in the Rutherford Canyon, Pemberton, BC with Kye Petersen, Leo Hoorn, Eric Hjorleifson and Matty Richard.  March 2014.  

If you could go back ten years, what advice would you give yourself?

Not too long ago I was reading Mary Ruefle and I remember this one part where she speaks of the voice within us, “a great weirdness” that we are all trying to listen to. It struck me, because I hear that voice all the time and I had distrusted it for so long. I thought my desire to become a photographer was some silly concoction of my youth and instead of listening, I pushed it far away so I could go on living some sort of pragmatic lifestyle I had assumed would serve me best. That worked temporarily, but soon enough that voice became louder and a bit more obscene. I realized that instead of listening, I opted to hide. So my advice to my twenty-one year old self would be to listen and to have faith in that voice. For me there will always be a battle between getting what I want and the desire to hide in fear. But what I’ve finally admitted is that I want a lot from this life. I want a lot for my heart, for my work, for my family, I want for so many things, and the only way to get it is to listen, to be vulnerable and to have a lot of faith in that weirdness within. -Adrienne Grunwald
