This past fall, Woman’s Adventure featured an image we captured while packing up the ski-bikes during our recent month long, self-supported and bicycle-powered skiing adventure through Arctic Norway.
We published a photo-driven feature in N Magazine this past fall, celebrating the fall tropical storm and surfing season along the New England coast. Here’s a glimpse at the center spread, below, and the full feature, HERE.
An image we captured while skiing in the High Peaks of New York’s Adirondacks last season ran as a spread in Powder magazine alongside a story about skiing the region after the passage of Tropical Storm Irene in August of 2011. Irene produced dozens of new landslides, many of which are skiable, in the Dacks.
Black Diamond Equipment Ltd., makers of top-notch equipment for backcountry skiing and climbing, featured this image on their website this past fall. We captured the image while approaching a peak above our seashore camp well after midnight during early May in Arctic Norway.
Vermont’s BTV Magazine, which covers the Burlington, VT scene, chose our image for the cover of their winter edition. The image feature’s Emily’s sister, Leah, enjoying some freshly falling snow here at home in the Green Mountains.

While there may not be much more than fallen leaves covering the valleys, colder temps have enabled snow to fall in our local mountains several times already this month. With good color still clinging to the hardwood trees, it’s a real treat to out in the snow this time of year. Foliage skiing, as we tend to call it around here, has become an annual pastime…seasonally appropriate adventure at its best. We recently published a short writeup and photo essay on the subject on ESPN.com. You can check it out HERE.

If you have enjoyed skiing Vermont’s Mad River Glen and Utah’s Alta ski area, you can probably relate to this story (View/print PDF here). The shared spirit between these two ski areas is legendary, and we’ve never come across a greater concentration of dedicated skiers anywhere.

In the latest winter issue, WEND Magazine has just published a feature story about our pedal-powered skiing adventures in Arctic Norway last spring. WEND also chose one of our images for the cover and ran another image as a 2-page spread and opener to the issue. Look out for WEND Magazine at larger bookstores, some outdoor stores, especially in the western US. You can take a sneak peek at the story HERE. Check back soon for a downloadable PDF version of the story here, too.
Although snow is by no means abundant in Vermont right now, Deepcember is likely just around the corner with a change in the jet stream forecasted for later this week. The image above was captured in December 2008. And with Deepcember now a welcome tradition (for skiers, at least) , I decided to write a story about it for Vermont’s Seven Days. Check it out HERE
Starting this August, we’ll be publishing a monthly, photo-driven feature in Vermont’s popular and independent weekly, Seven Days. Seven Days is widely read across the state, and it is a terrific source for the latest news, perspectives and commentary on the issues and subjects that matter most to Vermonters. Our first feature with Seven Days shares some perspective on one of our favorite summertime activities – river snorkeling. Check it out here.
We’re happy to report that one of our favorite images was recently selected for publication in the “Exposure” section of Outside Magazine’s June 2010 issue (page 10) – which is on newstands now. It’s an image that Emily and I captured while searching for an underground hot spring in the Myvatn geothermal area in north central Iceland last spring. Emily crawled down into this fissure to sniff out the spring, and we enjoyed some incredible time in its soothing, hot waters before heading out for an early evening ski tour on a nearby volcano. (Look below for an image taken inside the underground hot spring.)
Says Amy Silverman, Outside’s Associate Photo Editor, “When I’m looking for images that work for the Exposure section, one of the most popular sections of the magazine, I don’t know exactly what will work until I see it and it clicks. Brian and Emily sent me some of their work from Iceland and, when I saw the image we ended up using, I knew immediately that it would make a great Exposure. It was the shot that made me stop and say, “Wow! That’s amazing!!” It’s a beautiful photo but more than that it’s something you rarely see.”
There’s also a great story, penned by Patrick Symmes, in Outside’s June issue about the controversy surrounding the proposed damming of Chilean Patagonia’s Rio Baker Valley – a region which we have explored on our bikes, feet and skis over the years. Here’s a page on our website dedicated to our experiences in Patagonia’s Rio Baker region….LINK.
Having planted much of our veggie garden before setting off to Norway in late April, we’ve been able to enjoy (i.e. eat!) an increasing abundance of food since our return to Vermont two weeks back. Huge salads of mixed greens, crunchy spinach, and some tears of chard tossed with sliced radishes, shredded beets and cabbage (still from last season, staying cool in the fridge!), shredded carrots (purchased), some sprouted grains, a neighbor’s goat cheese and more…have been the rule. Occasionally, we grill up a little meat from our neighbor’s pigs, chickens and cows, too, to throw on top of the salad. Or perhaps we’ll sprinkle on some slivered almonds, sliced apples… And when we’re feeling really crazy, we’ll lay on a fried or poached egg or two – Chilean style! Yum.
There’s no doubt that the garden is the foundation of our diet during the warmer months, and increasingly, year round. Our love for fresh, healthy food is also responsible for an evolving focus in our photography and documentary work around Vermont’s emerging local food economy, edible landscaping and modern homesteading. On this note, be sure to check out our friend Ben Hewitt’s incredible new book, The Town that Food Saved.
This month, Northern Woodlands ran a feature story on the subject of “forest gardening”. The story opens with our photo we captured of Ben Falk, of Whole Systems Design (a friend and neighbor here in Moretown), tending to his fruit trees by cutting and mulching with deep-rooting comfrey growing beneath them. Northern Woodlands magazine is a publication of the non-profit Center for Northern Woodlands Education, Inc. based in Corinth, VT. It’s distributed primarily in the northeastern U.S., and it offers a forward thinking perpsective on how we use, develop and live within our forest-dominated environment.
