We go back to a artistic shot for todays photo of the day. Sam Ward from Kayak the Nile is racing in the giant slalom event at the 2014 Whitewater Grand Prix in Quebec. This shot was captured again with a remote camera on a tripod. It also involved a lot of luck and several […]
The last few action sports photos of the day have been pretty artsy. Todays is just straight up tight action. Sometimes times it is all that is needed, especially when that athlete is going big. And for this one, Mariann Saether is going massive. When covering events like the Whitewater Grand Prix, I will often […]
Todays photo of the day is a slow shutter. It is all about the motion and driven by the vision to do something different. It was captured during the the 2014 Whitewater Grand Prix at Black Mass. Typically when I am shooting slow shutters in kayaking I will shoot pretty wide as it increases the […]
A great action sports picture doesn’t always have to happen at peak action. In todays photo of the day, Nick Troutman finds himself in-between to big drops.

A group of paddlers and I set out for a high water decent of the Rouge River in Quebec. We where after a set of waterfalls called the 7 Sisters. Most people run this sections between 25-35cms. We put on about about 38cms for some high water challenge during this dark, wet day. We had […]
Check out my shots from day 2 of the Ottawa XL at Canoe & Kayak Magazine
Last weekend I covered the very first Ottawa XL kayaking event on the Ottawa River. Day one was freestyle and party! Check out Canoe & Kayak Magazine for all the photos!
This spring in Ottawa has been amazing for kayaking. The spring run off was a little late but it turned out to be an epic one with some of the highest water levels we have seen in years. The Ruin’s is a truly unique big wave that forms right in the heart of Ottawa on […]
