If you were a fan of snowboarding during the 90s, then you are already familiar with Jeff Curtes' work.  During that time he dominated the pages of Transworld Snowboarding and signed with Burton Snowboards as the principle photographer.  He would go on to produce some of the most iconic images of Burton's elite team of riders for the next 20 years.  He was there to watch as the small sport of snowboarding became an industry and children like Shaun White grew up to be dominate athletes and business men.   Through it all, Curtes was a steady presence of consistent work with an easy going attitude based around the fact that he was just trying to have fun as well.  On this episode of the podcast we sit down and talk about growing up in a small town outside of Milwaukee and, together with his younger brother Joe, falling in love with snowboarding at an early age.  When his brother began to start winning all the competitions, and the sport began to take notice, Jeff decided to focus on documenting the world of snowboarders he was surrounded by.  Before long he was being published, and the rest is history.  After many years of being totally immersed in the world of snowboarding, Jeff has moved on with other commercial and adventure lifestyle work, and is looking at what the next phase of his career might hold.  He currently shares space on RXR's very impressive roster of photographers, filmmakers, and athletes.  It's a great conversation about doing what you love and having fun while you do it.

When Nikon Ambassador and Adventure Photographer and Filmmaker Corey Rich was in middle school, he won a contest for the most pull ups a student could do with a whopping number of 35.  After seeing this, one of the teachers at the school put the idea in his head that he should try rock climbing.  Shortly after, he went on a trip to try climbing for the first time and it changed his life forever.  Corey was hooked, and he began climbing whenever he possibly could.  Pretty soon he decided he would take his dad's camera out on a trip to try and capture some visual proof of what he was up to. That's when the two passions that would shape his future and his career came together.  Corey would go on to build a huge portfolio as a climbing photographer first, which would eventually lead him it create an ever-growing list of commercial and editorial clients.  As an early adopter of SLR video capabilities, Corey became fascinated with adding motion work to his abilities and soon became just as busy as a filmmaker as he was a photographer.  He is currently on Nikon's prestigious list of ambassadors and travels all over the world.  Today, we sit down with Corey to talk about growing up in a small California town, and about his recent Ted Talk on embracing discomfort.  This a great conversation in which we really dive deep into battling some of your own demons, and where Corey gives advice on what he feels like helps you be successful and stay creative.

From an early age Dixie Dixon loved taking pictures and using the darkroom in her parents home.  She had been exposed to photography by her father and it had been somewhat of a tradition passed down in the family.  She split her creative time between a love of photography and a love of music.  She played in a lot of bands growing up, giving her an opportunity to perfect her performance chops that would later come in handy as a public speaker.  Once she went to college, she opted to focus most of her attention on business in an entrepreneur program, but continued to study art and photography as well.  On a whim, she decided to try and apply for a study abroad program in Europe.  She ended up assisting a fashion photographer and learning a lot about lighting, as well as the interaction between the photographer and the model.  Many more opportunities would arise, and soon Dixie found herself in demand and shooting for a TV show that had her traveling the world.  Dixie has gone on to have a very successful career for such a young commercial photographer.  She has an ever-growing list of high profile clients and the honor of calling herself a Nikon Ambassador.

From a very early age Anson Fogel realized he had a passion for film.  He was a creative kid, living in rural areas of the Rocky Mountains, and sometimes sought refuge in movies and art.  He loved creating things and soon found himself trying to make short videos with his friends in Middle School.  Although that love never went away, Fogel pursued business and engineering for a while and ended up heading a successful company.  It was not until the money started coming in that he realized that it wasn't just "success" that he was chasing after all and he returned to his original love of filmmaking.  He slowly worked his way through the ranks on commercial film sets, from AC to DP to his current role as a Director.  After winning the grand prize at the Banff Film Festival in 2011, he began to meet a lot of people in the outdoor/adventure community and would soon end up partnering with some of them in the formation of Camp 4 Collective.  With his expertise in making TV commercials and his love of narrative story telling, Fogel began creating a look and feel that is very unique and quickly started working with an elite roster of clients.  He has some opinions on why he thinks he was able to create a career for himself in such a competitive industry and he shares that with our listeners on this episode of the podcast.  So sit back and enjoy our conversation.......
