Behind The Shot– 100 Miles High

By Fredrik Marmsater- I’ve always approached shooting the Hardrock 100 to convey what the racers are going through – the massive vertical, intense terrain and the immense beauty that the course dishes out. The Hardrock covers 100 miles and 33000 vertical feet of climbing through the San Juans in southern Colorado – all while staying above 10000 ft for the vast majority of the race. Soaring peaks, deep valleys, flowering meadows, waterfalls and roaring creeks, snowfields, loose scree, intense electrical storms are all part of the norm and as the runners tackle the course. Inspiring to... Read More

TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY: Light, Location & Lenses

Where do I go to get the best shot of…? When do I go to get that shot? These questions have troubled travelers and photographers for years. Travel photography is more available and affordable than ever. Great travel photography boils down to three things: Light, Location and Lenses. In the following short paragraphs I will share with you the prime basics I have learned over the last 30 years of travel photography. Since the early 1980’s I have traveled to over 160 countries—yes, there are that many and still more to go!  Light. Without it GREAT photography is difficult—even with the... Read More

Why the Clik Elite Pro-Express was the perfect bag for this occasion.

I’m one of those people who will try to carry too many grocery sacks from the car to the kitchen table in order to save myself a trip. As a consequence, I’m also one of those people who drops the eggs a lot. Oddly enough, it’s usually only after I’m cleaning yolk off the garage floor that I realize I was acting stupidly. Saving the extra trip back to the car just seemed so. . . worth it, at the time. For some reason, there’s a drive inside of me that hates to leave something behind. I get eggs for $2 a dozen, so as wasteful and ridiculous as my little problem is, its never really... Read More

Clik Elite Camera Body and Lens Wraps

As a working photojournalist and adventure photographer, I cannot emphasize how imperative it is to have both the ability to protect my equipment while on the move, but for the gear I use to protect it to be ergonomic and adaptable to the type of work I do. This is to say that it must not be cumbersome and it must give me rapid access to my camera equipment when I need it because the difference sometimes for me between getting the shot and missing it, is being ready when it happens. Clik Elite Adventure Packs have been a staple in my work process and flow for years now and in the last year I... Read More

The Art of the Adventure by: Bryce Thatcher

I have never been a half in, half out kind of person. In fact, whatever I do gets the focus of my entire soul and purpose of being. And, yet, I have dual sided interests that seem to reside as simultaneously needs.   I love engaging in adventures that are photo worthy, and I also love to be on the opposite side of the lens capturing those adventures in a creative way.   Only in this way am I able to have both a physical and an artistic experience. Call it a kind of installation art, designed to transform the perception of the space of the adventure and allowing it to be viewed... Read More
