This is not the official bio for photographer Colin Adair but it is nonetheless a bio. The worlds best photographer? Perhaps. It depends who is asking. It depends who is answering. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if Instagram likes mean anything than the answer is no. That honour belongs to Justin Beiber. He is the worlds best photographer according to Instagram. Colin Adair on the other hand is a serious artist. He shoots film a lot just to keep his artistic and hipster cred up to date. He won't sell out to energy drink companies unless they ask really nicely. The mark of a true artist is to make everyone feel like you are doing them a favour. In fact he is doing you a favour right now by letting you read this and Hightide Mfg will owe him their gratitude in perpetuity.

“In our postmodern, image-driven milieu, even the most sensational scenes can barely elicit a reaction. Yet, when the active elements of mystery and humanity intersect, images can reach right out and touch us. It is with passion and perception that Ashley Barker arrives at this intersection with her photography. Formal training at the Western Academy Of Photography and a grand sense of scale, born of her Alberta roots, inform her visual perspective. An accomplished commercial artist at only 25, Barker’s photos are in demand with the world’s foremost publishers of snowboarding, skiing and action culture. She loves the mountains and works fervently to gain skill and experience shooting in the alpine environment. And it is out there, far from the manmade constructs of so-called civilization that her passion finds expression." - Joel Muzzey

She migrated west lured first by the ocean to Tofino and later by the mountains to Golden, BC. In these flourishing landscapes, Hayley developed a voice synchronized to the natural aesthetics of the world. Continuously exploring new processes, techniques and mediums, she aims not only for her work to be aesthetically pleasing but also to draw attention to the beautiful details in life that are sometimes overlooked.

They originally called him Mark Trinidad, but that was before he moved to Whistler just two months before his 18th birthday. When he showed up on the Whistler scene everyone thought he looked like a Mexican version of Scott Bao. Because of this he has gone by the name Chachi Ramerez ever since. Chachi spent many years in Whistler honing his snowboarding skills before finally surfacing in Vancouver to train in web design. The big city would not hold him long, and Chachi has returned back to the mountains of Whistler. - Daryl Trinidad
