“The question is not what we get out of nature, but what can we give back to nature.”

This film follows world renowned Woodsman Ray Mears through the wilderness of Temagami, Canada as he explores the path of acclaimed author and conservationist Grey Owl (also known as Archibald Belaney). While Ray reflects on the landscape that shaped Grey Owl into the person that he was, Ray further delves into Grey Owl’s message about protecting our wilderness and why this is still so relevant and important in our present day.

For me, this is a piece that evokes my love for the natural world and wild country – an intimate portrait of the landscape and region of Temagami.

Produced in partnership by Northeastern Ontario & the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation.

Earlier this year, I set off to Cape Town, South Africa to shoot and direct a TV spot for Boston Pizza.  It was quite the shoot and adventure with a very large cast, multiple locations and a restaurant studio build!  Check out these images by Brooke Wedlock who did an incredible job capturing the behind-the-scenes moments.

I’m honoured and priveledged to have received two awards recently. ‘We Are Possibility’ won best motion (single category) in the 2015 Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Award, while the short film ‘Pull’ won the same award as well as best video in the 2015 PDN Photo Annual Award. Really cool to see these works amongst some incredibly talented artists.

For the latest episode, the Water Born crew teamed up with GoPro and their athletes to further explore the meaning of water in Maui, Hawaii. The entire episode was filmed completely using only GoPro’s. Take a glimpse into Episode 04 “Still Haven”. For all who love the ocean, we hope this resonates with you.
