I love being on a bike, it helps me feel free. I get it from my dad. After days and days of cycling the streets of Montreal, come cold or sun, or even a little frightened, I dedicate this film to him.

·Roadtrip in Spain with the Longboard Girls Crew·
In this first chapter, Jacky, Valeria, Carlota & Gador welcome Maitane, who's coming from the Basque Country; Marisa coming from Miami and Amanda from Massachusetts. Together, they start their journey traveling 600 km in the van in order to get to Cabo de Gata Natural Area, in Almería. They spend three days over there, enjoying unique volcanic-origin landscapes, the deep blue sea breaking against the winding coastline, August relentless sun and secondary roads that leads to small towns and coves in the Mediterranean coast.
[7 female riders, 1 van, 15 days, 4.300km, 416 GB of raw material… culminating in one video, divided into four chapters. The film documents the adventure of the trip, portraying the girls, their lifestyle and their passion for longboard.]
En este primer capítulo Jacky, Valeria, Carlota y Gador reciben en Madrid a Maitane, que viene del País Vasco, a Marisa, de Miami y a Amanda, de Massachusetts. Juntas emprenden el viaje recorriendo 600 km en la van para llegar al Parque Natural del Cabo de Gata en Almería. Allí pasan tres días disfrutando de unos parajes únicos de origen volcánico, un mar azul que rompe contra el tortuoso perfil del litoral levantino, el sol implacable de agosto y las carreteras secundarias que conducen a las pequeñas calas y pueblos de la costa mediterránea.
[7 riders, 1 furgoneta, 15 días, 4.300 kilómetros, 416GB de imágenes… Meses de trabajo! Todo ello se convertirá en un vídeo, dividido en cuatro capítulos, que documenta la aventura del viaje, retrata a sus protagonistas y muestra su pasión por el longboard.]

This summer, two friends and myself all left our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones... adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends, getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our love of photography with others.
This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I'd have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at the location. It was a constant race against the light.
During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan... with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there.
A big thanks to Coca-Cola and Flickr for helping to sponsor our trip. Thanks also to everyone else that donated, attended our workshops, and gave us places to stay!

It’s been almost a year since I started my journey into time-lapse photography. This project has been an ongoing process for about 4 months. There was a lot of trial and error involved, and I spent many sleepless nights in many different unexpected places. Creating this film has taught me about patience, and what it really takes to achieve the shot that you dream about in your head. I realized through the process that the gear isn't as important as the passion you put within your work.
This short video is called EXISTENCE. The video is a statement not only about time and progression, but also a statement about the world we have created for ourselves. The basis of the video contrasts the two extremes of life itself: the urban metropolis, and the beauty outside the city. I love to stargaze. Watching the milky-way float across the sky is one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever felt. If you haven’t experienced it, then I strongly recommend taking the time to do so.
