Having grown up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains our trip to in Montana felt familiar, but way more cinematic. Canada Goose invited us to celebrate their collaboration with Pendleton, two brands whose skills and aesthetics are a perfect fit. Toronto based Canada Goose provides the down insulation (for the few days that hit -30 every winter) and Portland's Pendleton designed the perfect red and blue patterns, for the refined outdoorsman.
We were there with eight other bloggers who were inspiring to meet and get to know. One thing I found really interesting was that even though most of them didn't identify as photographers, they all produced such beautiful work. I can’t say it enough, we live in an age where training and gear are completely unimportant. Don’t wait for permission to go take great photos. You should really check out their work: Lisa & Marcel from New York, Michelle & Tyler from LA, and Naska & Marcus from Montreal.
One surprise was that I was the only one shooting Canon on the trip, it was strange to be so outnumbered by Nikons. To hear a longer conversation about it listen to episode 33 of my photography podcast, Cameras or Whatever.
