Our Media Program is a way for us to further connect with our guests to undercover stories here in the West Kootenays. Since we launched this program, we've teamed up with photographers Steve Robert, Nadine Nevitt, Tim Whybrow and journalist Aaron Theisen!
Meet Steve Robert, a French photographer originally from Lyon, France. Last winter, Steve reached out with an idea to document a snowstorm at Logden. Steve is a talented filmmaker who used to live in Nelson and produced amazing visuals during his time here. During this stay, Steve created this film called Winter Freedom which draws a connection to the ease of access Logden gives you to the backcountry. Thanks so much for sharing this with us Steve and we hope you make it back here soon!
Meet Nadine Nevitt, a visual artist, and photographer based out of Vancouver, BC originally from Caledon, Ontario. Nadine is a frequent guest during the winter and has a great eye for capturing beautiful moments at the Lodge and at Whitewater Ski Resort. This past winter Nadine photographed the 8th Annual Jr. Freeski Open and shared some moments from her stay as well. We look forward to seeing you again in January 2020!
Meet Aaron Theisen, an outdoors and travel storytelling based out of Spokane, Washington. Aaron is a writer and photographer that focuses on skiing, biking, hiking, and mountain culture. This summer Aaron and friends stayed with us to document a mountain biking experience to showcase some of our favourite local trails here in Ymir. Make sure to check out Aaron's work in Out There Outdoors where he is a regular contributor to numerous outdoors and lifestyle narratives.
Meet Tim Whybrow, raised on the island state of Tasmania, Australia. Tim became a professional photographer and cinematographer by following his childhood dream. Tim stayed with us this summer to capture his vision of our Lodge and called it Simplify Your Life. "In a fast-paced environment, photo opportunities arise at the blink of an eye. It takes a wealth of creativity and experience to predict and capture that moment and beauty it holds. At Logden, it's a lot easier!" Thank you Tim!
Meet Tristan Martin-Preney, a talented cinematographer and skier based here in the Kootenays. Tristan is also the owner and operator of CamCamps, which offers youth opportunities to learn about filmmaking for all ages and skill levels. We came across Tristan's work in 2019 when his film 'Rising from my Roots' released. This short film illustrates a story of a skier by the name of Trace Cooke looking to make a name for himself in the ski industry. We're excited to have Tristan join our Media Program and we have some exciting projects in the works!
