One post a Month....

ya I know it has been a while....these blogs are cool but then you get too many and forget to update and blah blah blah...Anyway things have been great....with the fun little south swells we have had, I have finally satisfied my surf itch. Before that I think I was blogging more than I was surfing.

We added a new photographer on TidalStock, Tracey Tomtene. She is a great photographer living in Canada. She has a unique style, which is different from our other photographers, but we really like that about her work. Here is her bio.

Tracey Tomtene has grown up and lived in various parts of Western Canada and also made temporary homes abroad in the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Although she studied Business in university, all of her electives were filled with Fine Arts. It was not until she took a black and white darkroom photography course that her predestined craft would reveal itself. That was six years ago. Ever since, she has honed her techniques through the course of her travels using both traditional and digital photography equipment. Her and her camera have traveled far from home to the south east of Asia, Hawaii, New York, all the way back to her father’s farm in Birch Hills, Saskatchewan, Canada. She currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Soooo what I have I been up to???
I have been working on some video/photography production with my cousin Erin Edwards. She was a former professional surfer now works for Fuel TV and is a published writer. So we have been doing some stuff for their website, and some personal projects as well. It has been a fun change of scenery doing the video stuff. A lot of photographers like Chase Jarvis and Vincent Laforet think that the lines between video and photography will get smaller, especially now with the new cameras coming out that have full 1080p video. Anyway we have a bunch of ideas in the works and we hope to produce some cool stuff. In our latest ventures we intervened Nathaniel Curran and attended the Life Rolls On, Jesse's Story movie premier. Look for more Athlete Interviews, events, and maybe even some how to photography videos.....

Here is some footage and photos from the Nathaniel Curran interview...
