Thanks to all the people at Trek who gave me the opportunity to bring this idea to life. It has been an amazing experience!
Episode III - THE SHAPESHIFTER
The supernatural… does it exist? The curious explore unbound by restrictions of place and mind and perhaps discover things we haven't understood. Legend whitewater kayaker Ben Marr shreds the upper reaches of Quebec, pushing limits to new and undiscovered levels.
From forgemotionpictures.com, makers of the award-winning films Wild Water, Seasons, and Cold, comes the groundbreaking web series Of Souls + Water.
The Moab desert is full of beautiful, free standing sandstone towers. What could be more practical and aesthetic than free climbing the towers and base jumping off them?
With my husband and partner Mario Richard, and our good friends Keith Ladzinski and Jorge Visser, we teamed up to shoot the whole adventure on these beautiful towers and make a movie of some of our favorite base climbs.
The adventure is on! This year, the GearJunkie crew heads "off the map" to iconic outdoor destinations around North America. Follow us from sea caves on Lake Superior to California's infamous Lost Coast on an exclusive five-part video series. http://gearjunkie.com/off-the-map
As a climber sometimes our biggest job is to try to do justice to the amazing stories of our friends and peers. For this piece I worked with our crew at camp4collective.com to tell thenorthface.com athlete Jimmy Chin's jimmychin.com story as he in turn highlights modern day climbing in Yosemite for a National Geographic feature story.
It seemed so serendipitous to be 'on assignment' in a place that we all cut out teeth as adventurers and which also ended up becoming the namesake of our collective!
