Vancouver: Alex Waber

"I try to get outside a lot. Bike rides, hikes, kayak trips; just put me in nature and I’m happy. I’ve shot outdoor campaigns and lookbooks for brands like Arcteryx, Tilley Endurables, Section 35, and Kit and Ace.

But aside from the drama and action, one of my favourite parts of any adventure is the in between moments, friends hanging out, cooking food, waiting for boats, or being completely wiped after an epic climb. When we let our guard down and just revel in the moment. Easy to overlook but often the parts that are most remembered.

Like on a kayak trip last summer, catching fresh crabs for dinner, and while distracted by the delicious food sharing my beer with a local slug. Or on another trip, camping by possibly the buggiest lake ever, we had to drink through our mosquito nets as they’d go for any exposed skin. The sports are great, but at the end of the day, but its nothing without the people you share it with."

Alex Waber is a Vancouver-based commercial photographer who has been working in studio and on location (on mountains, in forests and out on the water) for the past 15 years.
