005: Interview with Photographer Chloe Hibbert // @clo.photo

Chloe is a local photographer who has been doing some pretty amazing things! We're super stoked to have had the opportunity to do an interview with her - thank you, Chloe, for the endless inspiration, and for being an important part of this community. It's been amazing to watch your photography grow and gain recognition on an international scale. 

Here's a glimpse into her story:

01. Tell us a bit about yourself, Chloe.

         I'm a 23 year old self taught portrait photographer from Calgary. I come from a big noisy family with 5 younger brothers, I work in advertising full-time, do portrait photography part-time, and shoot landscapes for fun. My favourite place i've visited so far is Yellowstone National Park. One day I hope to be able to start my own shop. I think that's me in a nutshell.

02. Describe your photography style.

 To be honest I think my style is still developing. What I post on IG is generally what I am passionate about. I love being able to promote independent brands and stores when I can. I love style, scenery, travel, food.. I love to experiment with most types of photography.  At the moment I would like to try more contemporary photography, more minimalism. I like the idea of creating images that are thought provoking, so I guess we will see what the future holds in that regard.  I like to remind myself that every good and admired work is a result of inspiration found from something or someone else, it's pretty impossible to come up with a good idea solely on your own. So having the IG community to draw from is pretty incredible in that regard, there is so much talent and inspiring work out there.. and you have access to it at your fingertips. It's a major driving force for me, so IG is really helping to shape my photography style and push me to visit new places and capture new things.

03. Who are some contemporary photographers and collectives that you like to follow – and what about their work do you love?

I could go on forever with this one. I will name a few photographers that have recently inspired me.. @samalive for cityscapes @scottbakken and @cruiserlifestyle for their expression of faith and encouragement of community, @kpunkka for wildlife, @scottborrero for travel, @mamawatters for reminding me that every day can be the most precious adventure. I'm also a big fan of @stevint @calsnape and @brookewillson for getting out there every weekend and finding something new to explore. On a collective/product basis, I have had endless compliments on my Eli weekender bag which I received from a wonderful company called Amos Brand (@amosbrand), similarly I am a huge fan of Treeline Outdoors (@treelineoutdoors). I love both their backstories, and the quality of their product is top notch. Similarly Albertas very own Camp Brand Goods (@campbrandgoods) and Wilderness Culture (@wildernessculture) are another two favourite accounts to follow. All those companies reflect their lifestyle and passions so well, and I really respect that. I find a lot of design inspiration in the quarterly issues of Kinfolk magazine (@kinfolk) as well as Monocle magazine. There are endless people and places to find inspiration, every day there is something or someone to be found that is inspirational, so it doesn't end here.

04. How has social media played a role in your photography?

It has made a huge impact on my life generally. Sometimes bad, but mostly good. It's very easy to allow social media to consume you if you aren't careful. I sometimes have found myself frantic to get something posted, completely forgetting to enjoy the environment I'm in. Some days you find yourself refreshing endlessly and then realizing that you wasted a whole day on the internet. That's the negative side of social media. But it's one that can be balanced with a bit of discipline. On the plus side, I've discovered so many people that give me daily inspiration and motivation. It's wonderful to receive both negative and positive comments, and be able to develop through that feedback. Having companies reach out to me because they like my work is very humbling and motivating as well.

05. What gear do you use?

I'm a Nikon girl. Currently i'm in the middle of upgrading to either the D610 or D810, which is a big, scary (and expensive) move for me. For the past 4 years i've been shooting with a D5100 with various lenses and mostly just doing portraits. However i'm excited to start shooting with more professional equipment and continue to develop better photoshop skills. Recently I've started a small collection of vintage film cameras which are fun to play around with. Newest additions to the collection are a 1951 bottom loading Canon Rangefinder and a 1917 Autographic Kodak.

06. What are some other projects that you’ve found yourself a part of?

I've been contacted by a few people to do some product photography which is pretty cool. Treeline Outdoors, Daniel Wellington Watches, Seneca Press are a few companies that have been fun to work with. More recently I was a part of a group of people contacted by Gestalten to contribute to Jeffrey Bowman's new book, The Great Wide Open.. and that was a really exciting step for me. I've never had my work put into print so I'm excited to see the result of that in March when it is released. 

07. What do you want viewers to take away from your work?

I'd like them to take away some form of inspiration, even if it's just something small. I love sharing quotes that inspire me, and creating dialogue by asking questions.. so if someone can gain a better perspective, or be inspired to visit a new place by my imagery, then something good has resulted, and that's all that matters to me.

08. Tell us about one of your most memorable adventures. 

One of my most memorable adventures was definitely exploring the island of Barbados with my Aunt, Uncle & cousins last year. We took a day and drove around the whole island and it was so amazing to be away from the resort and really experience the island culture. Our first stop was Sam Lords Castle, a hotel which had burned down mysteriously years before.. the structure was still intact due to it being made from coral, so we could go inside and look around. It was eerie but amazing to see this old run down hotel in contrast with the paradise around it. I only spent a week in Barbados, but every day was something new and exciting. Its the only trip i've been on that I can remember exactly what we did each and every day.

09. And last, but certainly not least, why do you take photos?

After losing some very important people in my life I started to spend a lot of time outdoors and found the solitude and quiet of the Canadian rockies a marvellous therapy for the body and mind.  Soon I started to take my camera along with me, and I slowly started discovering a side of photography that felt a little more personal to me. It became a way of capturing those good feelings of contentment. I expanded on that interest by creating an IG account almost a year ago. Initially I had no idea that my images could interest so many people, it was really only a way for me to have an online portfolio. I spend a good deal of my weekends away in the mountains now. I still consider it the best way for me to relieve stress and find much needed solitude in the midst of such a busy world.

The story starts in 1994, in my parents basement on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. My sister and I have been sat down on the couch in the basement. The mood is sad and confusing, my parents are not themselves.

“You’re Grandpa George has passed on” 

They try to explain death and what this will mean going forward. Tough business when you are speaking to a 6 and 9 year old. If you show me proof that something exists, I will agree. Try showing proof that something doesn’t exist, you can’t, really.

 A few years pass by and I find myself on a forested hillside in Interior British Columbia. My Dad and I are out on an annual hunting trip, the ultimate in father son bonding. Looking across the small draw we spot a raven flying low over a patch of trees. 

“You see him son? Over there. It’s your grandpa, he is trying to tell you where the deer are.”

My grandfathers spirit had seemed to linger after his death, through many events and tales best left to tell around the campfire. Ask me sometime and I will tell you. But these other events, they made this all seem plausible.

Memories of my grandfather on my Dad’s side are scarce, but from what I remember and what I am told he was a man made of one part lumberjack, one part cowboy and about 3 parts redneck.

Luckily, after his passing in 2011, memories of my Mom’s father are a little more plentiful. He was a longshoreman, spent a little time in the navy, and a lot of time on a motorcycle. In his latter years as his belly grew and his beard whitened he could easily be mistaken for Santa Clause if it weren’t for the arm tats. 

Between his stint in the Navy and my Great Grandfathers service in WW2, there are two items that symbolize the men of my family to me; the raven and the poppy. I always thought the two would play well in my own piece of body art one day.

Years after my move to Alberta I continued to carry with me the Northwest Coast First Nations heritage and cultural influences that surrounded my youth on the island. Although, it wasn’t until 2014 that my connection with ravens and their spiritual worth would culminate into an undeniable part of my life.

I replenish the water and food in my pack, and make out for my second solo-summit campout of the weekend. It is a grueling slog up the loose rock pile to the summit of Sunwapta, on Icefields Parkway. Within four or five hours I reach the top, and find a small wind break made of stones, just big enough to tuck my bivouac behind. I sit down with a snack and crack open the summit register, looking back I see the name of an old friend.

With great time spent alone in the mountains comes great time within your own mind. The highs and lows of every emotion have a chance to visit, as you mentally process each and every aspect of life, whether you like it or not.

Being so far from anyone I knew, so far from anything, I felt more alone than ever. My soul was full but my heart was empty and my mind knew it.

“Why am I here, should I be here? It’s hours before sunset, this will be a painfully long night.” I thought to myself.

 Then I heard an old familiar sound, one that only a raven can make, and just like that I was no longer alone. He circled under the east face and caught an updraft bringing him to the summit, where he landed just a little down the ridge. I took it as a sign that I really wasn’t alone, and within 5 minutes a rainstorm blew in that pushed me into my bivy. I set my alarm for sunset and drifted off to sleep, warm and content with the old familiar sound of raindrops hitting the goretex bivouac. I awoke to a break in the clouds just long enough to eat dinner, shoot the sunset and get back to bed. The sunset was magnificent, accentuated by the storm clouds rolling all around me, and the evening was painlessly short.

Upon hiking up Mount Sparrowhawk I encountered very thick fog and cloud, making it nearly impossible to find the route on open scree slopes. At a break in the clouds I came across the raven, sitting on a rock pile, waiting. As I left in the opposite direction he jumped up with a powerful push of his massive wings and flew overhead, flying low through the cloud directly up the trail. As if to show me the way.


At the crux of Mount Burstall, a snow covered slab with high, high exposure I considered turning back. The raven flew the route and landed somewhere on the summit out of site, as if to say “catch me if you can”.

On the top of the small peak of Junction Hill, my mind was a mental jumble of life decisions that should only be a problem in the city. The raven was passing by, but seemed to hover in the wind directly above my head, just long enough to bring me back to nature and what was really important at that moment. As I snapped out of it he began performing a classic aerobatic routine of barrel rolls displaying a playful appreciation for life.  

In 2014 I visited the top of 38 peaks. In 38 peaks, I was visited by the raven 37 times. There was one, that the raven did not show on, I will admit. Coincidentally it was Wasootch Peak, on Remembrance Day, confirming the connection with poppies.

Northwest Coast Native mythology states the raven as the trickster, the shape shifter and the bringer of light. By shifting shapes he manages to trick an old man and the owner of all the light in the universe to give him the sun. The raven steals the sun, and releases the light to the universe.

As a spirit animal the raven is said to bring you pending synchronicity. By mastering the ability to bend and fold time he will ensure you are in exactly the right moment at the right time. The raven represents rebirth, recovery, renewal, reflection and healing. He can signify moving through transitions smoothly by casting light into darkness.

So the next time you are visited by the raven, embrace it, and think about what he’s trying to tell you.

003: Interview With Wilderness Wyatt | Adventure Ambassador

Here at Meraki Supply Co., we've recently had the opportunity to meet a pretty rad dude, who's about to really shake up our adventure game. 

Meet Wyatt Bronson.

Incredibly authentic local outdoor enthusiast who takes his treks to the next level. Every once in a while you get the opportunity to meet someone who is so passionate about what they do, and who is nothing short of genuine. This guy evidently puts an extraordinary amount of heart into everything he does - from volunteering with search and rescue to hosting adventure 101 seminars; from pranking his friends for a good laugh to summiting a mountain with a full sized watermelon in his backpack just to see the priceless look on someone's face - we could not be more excited to welcome him on board the Meraki team as an Ambassador for Adventure. I think it's got a pretty nice ring, don't you think? 

Looking forward to proper adventures, continuously promoting the outdoors with Wyatt, and our growing community. Thank you all for the support so far in this journey, we cannot begin to thank you enough.

01. Tell us a bit about yourself, Wyatt. 

I'm originally from Vancouver Island and grew up in the ultimate backwoods playground. My parents are very active outdoors and instilled the lifestyle into me from day one. I moved to Alberta about seven years ago for work and opportunity but I've stuck around due to the Rockies. I still work a day job in a Red Seal trade but I manage more days in the mountains than most, including time volunteering with search and rescue, and I'm thankful for that.
 

02. What are you passionate about, and what is your inspiration for doing what you love? 

You could say I am passionate about mountains, plain and simple. However ask my friends and they may use the term obsessive. Mostly standing (sometimes sleeping) on summits in particular.

My inspiration started from my parents, but has developed into a much bigger picture. I find inspiration in every back country experience. Whether it's standing on the summit, bumping into a Grizzly on the trail or even a joke told on the car ride out.
 

03. What is the biggest lesson that you've learned so far in your journey? 

The biggest lesson I have learned so far is to respect nature and everything associated. Knowing your own limitations and how to mitigate obstacles and conditions that are ultimately out of your control. Being humble in your abilities and be realistic. Having eyes bigger than your stomach is great on Thanksgiving, but not so much in the Rockies.
 

04. What do you hope to bring to the Meraki Supply Co. Team?  

I hope to bring another level of inspiration to local adventurers. I want to share my experiences and allow others to experience them through my stories. The good and the bad, in a realest form.

I also hope to promote proper and respectful use of our vast Canadian wilderness. Together we can hopefully bring together a like-minded community of wholesome mountain folk.

05. Tell us about one of your most memorable adventures. 

Last summer I made a solo scramble trip up Mount Putnik in Kananaskis Country. It was a long day, gorgeous weather turning throughout the day. I managed to navigate the chossy, nasty, loose summit ridge and arrived at the top with a fast approaching thunderstorm. I read the summit register to find that in 35 years, I was only the twelfth party to sign the register.

After getting off the mountain, I was in the trees on the approach trail that connects K lakes with Three Isle. The thunder, lightening and torrential downpour began. I was soaked to the bone and carried on for the next two hours through Forrest Gump style rain. With my head down and boots on the ground I just carried on while the lightening shook the trees around me and the mud flashed blue.

After checking the parking lot at Upper Kananaskis Lake for witnesses I stripped down, threw on dry clothes and made a break for a warm meal and cold beverage in Canmore.
 

06. How do you want to improve and grow as a person in the next year? And what are some of your goals for future adventures?  

I want to continue to slowly build my technical ability and comfort level as I transition into the mountaineering and climbing world.

Some adventures you can expect to see me on in 2015 are:

-The North Coast Trail, Vancouver Island

-The Golden Hinde, highest peak on Vancouver Island

-Mount Assiniboine, classic NE route

And many more summit campouts for sunsets and sunrises. In some pretty phenomenal areas including:

-Berg Lake/Mount Robson area

-Valhalla Provincial Park

-Bugaboos

On top of those I am looking forward to some smaller day trips with friends, old and new. Including some rad-ass adventures with the Meraki crew!

Thank you for the interview, Wyatt! Your contributions are very appreciated, you've got an incredible story to share.

002: Interview with Amōs Brand

We’ve recently had the opportunity to talk to founder of Amōs Brand, Kyle Bardouche, and get an inside look at what they’re all about. They’re constantly designing, creating, and releasing new handmade leather goods, with incredible craftsmanship and minimalist vibe. First of all, I would like to thank Kyle and everyone at Amōs for all the support, and also for all the inspiration- it’s not everyday you come across such a humble bunch. What they do and how they do it is truly amazing; I’m incredibly stoked on this partnership.

01. What's the inspiration for your name?

Our name Amōs actually means to carry in ancient Hebrew.  We love the way it sounds and we love even more that it has a meaning behind it.  You can carry all of our goods with you through your journey of life.

 002. What pushed you to start your own company?

I started Amōs because I've always had a passion for high-quality minimal design/products.  I've always had an entrepreneurial kick and I always wanted to start my own business and really create something that people actually want and use.  The idea hit me when I couldn't find a nice messenger bag for work (IT Network Admin - corporate job - totally sucks). I could only find either really rugged and bulky bags or the high end designer stuff like Louis Vuitton, and that isn't my style. And that's when Amos was born!

 003. Why did you choose your current product line?

When we think up a product, we only design pieces that we would use ourselves and we want all of our products to be functional.  The Three most important aspects of our products are aesthetic appeal, durability and functionality.  It has to look good, feel good and perform well.  Oh yeah, and our products are designed to last for decades with minimal care.  When people carry our goods we want it to give them confidence and make them feel good.

 004. Where do you find inspiration for new ideas?

Our three biggest influences are J. Crew, Apple and BMW.  I love J. Crew's classy style, Apple's simplicity, and BMW's sporty elegant design. I think each one of these brands has an influence in every product we design.  

Another little something about us - we love our dogs and we're huge animals lovers. The Eli Weekender is named after our black lab and the Zoe Tote is named after our Akita mix.  All of our bags we release in the future is going to be named after someone near and dear to us.

 005. What's your goal for Amos in the next 5 years? 10 years?

We have huge dreams and visions for Amōs. Our goal and isn't just to carry leather goods - over time we want to develop Amōs into a full lifestyle brand. Including waxed canvas bags, belts, shoes, money clips, initial rings, and a pet line as well, among other things. We're always designing, prototyping and releasing new goods.

 006. What's the biggest lesson you've learned so far in your journey?

The biggest lesson I have learned so far, is to weed out all the negativity.  Not everyone is going to love your ideas or dreams, and will even criticize them.  So you have to stay positive, focus on the good and keep working and chasing your goals, because if you work for it, you can attain anything.

007. What key component has made your business successful? 

The biggest component by far has been Instagram.  It's so unreal, I never excepted it, it's like one big family.  The Instagram community is great - we especially love seeing photos of customer's goods and how they use their products after they buy from us.  We've met so many cool people through Instagram and that's where a majority of our customers come from as well.  We've also made some cool business partnerships along the way by hooking up on IG.

 008. What message would you like to give out to your Canadian and American consumers?

Be yourself, be creative, and live for what you believe in.  Do what makes you happy and have some individuality.  Everyone has their own style and you should be comfortable with it.

001: Interview with Photographer Michael Benz

Here at Meraki, we believe that the true essence of anything is in the detail, in the individuality, and within it's core. Fortunately, we've managed to bring local photographer, Michael Benz, on board for exactly that-- a unique edge, and skill set to showcase the future of Meraki Supply Co.

Michael is our go-to guy for all of the photography, design, and graphics behind Meraki. I wanted to first and foremost take this opportunity to officailly introduce you all to someone who plays a huge part in the future of this company. Thank you, Michael, for all that you do; many adventures to come, my friend. Welcome to the Meraki team! 

michaelbenz.jpg

001. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I absolutely live and breathe my work, through and through. Ever since I got a taste for photography on a trip to San Francisco in 2007 I was immediately sensing an addiction. From that point in time till 2010 I was doing what I could exploring all the different disciplines I could until I came across one that I developed a certain type of love for; event photography, I spent a few more years pursuing specifically that till I gained the knowledge and gear set to start photographing Portrait photography, since then Its taken over a lot of my work. I absolutely love working with individuals in the studio as well as out on location in the Wilderness in Alberta. The explore series of photos that I do currently just started out as a pastime, somewhat of an escape from the urban life, but now its become an entity of my work I take extreme pride in, ever since working with my explore friends as well as with Meraki and Amos Brand Goods.

I have never felt the comfort and confidence in anything that I have done before to what I do currently.  Right now I spend my days as a freelance graphic designer, events coordinator and photographer. The mix of all three have been a very refreshing aspect to my lifestyle and I’m very proud of myself to reaching this point in my life, because something like this was always a dream, now a reality.

002. Describe your style.

I take a very raw approach to my work, somewhat in the form of a journalist. As a child I had an obsession with reading National Geographic’s after coming across my moms 1988-1991 set of issues, I always loved the story that the images told, how they spoke to me and supplemented and sometimes overpowered the words in the issues. I think the main ideal that National Geographic journalists like Steve McCurry extended to me is the feel the photo will give is far more important then the perfection associated. Over the past few years I have had a more summarized form in the back of my head; “Perfection is boring.”

In absolutely everything that I do either familiar or not familiar, I never doubt myself, and push myself to reach a different stature then what I have already achieved. Reaching different levels and completely different feels in the projects I undertake is the form that I feel successful, ultimately; it just has to be better then before, or very good to me at the start.

Primarily in my work over the last few years I have become a massive advocate to VSCO (www.vsco.co). It has absolutely changed my workflow and color depth of my images, its an absolutely breathtaking set of parameters to edit my images in and an very large contributor to my final product of the delivered images I push out.

003. Who are some contemporary photographers and collectives that you like to follow – and what about their work do you love?

Steve McCurry is a large contributor to really establishing my liking of photography as a child. His images documenting for National Geographic in his mid age was probably the most tremendous forming a healthy sense of envy over the experiences he was a part in. His ability to capture the soul of the commissions he had undertaken was absolutely amazing to watch as a child, I honestly don’t think that anyone will come close to the rawness he was able to display. Extending to the last roll of Kodachrome he was able to shoot brought tears to my eyes, in the form of the death of the most perfect film in my eyes, and something that will never ever be able to be replicated again, that is the ultimate achievement.

Michael Muller is also held in very high esteem to me, his body of work all around is unbelievable. He is on the complete inverse of Steve McCurry to me, capturing moody images from celebrity portraits, to his exploration work in very treacherous forms. Over the past five years he is probably the most followed photographer and really pushes me to try new things with my portrait work, and to seek out mood and atmosphere in the light I photograph in.

Extending from that my peers around me are really the largest source of inspiration to my current style. The largest of those is Tye Carson, becoming friends with him when I was just budding as a photographer really pushed me in creating a style and actually making the move to become a creative individual, he is and always will be a massive source of help, consultation and support in my professional and daily life.

Phil Meintzer has become a peer of mine recently in the last three years. I helped bring him up the same way that Tye did to me, and that really makes me feel amazing to be a source of inspiration as so to someone else. Its absolutely huge, he was extremely interested in events photography, we shot together an absolute ton till the end was in sight with that. At that point we both started to pursue portrait photography & weddings very strongly together last summer. He was absolutely the driving force in the Explore series of photos to come to conception as we both explored together on the first few sessions, the rest is history to me.

004. How has social media played a role in your photography?

Its massive, Instagram has been the most insightful for my ability to share my work with the world. It’s a staple in my daily processes, and opens so many doors to new friendships, clients and projects. The community is so huge and the positivity surrounding is tremendous in getting recognition and footprint on the creative world. It contains the most complete feed of my weekly work, even more so then my website. It has been such an amazing aspect to include in my daily routine and a pastime I absolutely love it. It also makes me realize the sheer amount of talented individuals out there doing what they love, and I love seeing peoples great snaps, its absolutely amazing.

005. What gear do you use?

Primarily I use a Canon 5D Mark III paired with a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 A, a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L. Next on my list is a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 A, super hyped to be getting that.

Along with that in the film world, I formerly used a Contax G2 w/ a Zeiss 45mm f/2, recently I have downgraded to a Canon AE-1 w/ a 50mm f/1.4 S.S.C for my own good hah! Along with my monster a Mamiya RZ67 paired with a 110mm f/2.8.

I’m a strong believer that dependable gear is a very large factor in the produced work a photographer is able to accomplish in terms of dependability, but it all comes down in how you use that equipment that really matters.

006. What are some other projects that you’ve found yourself a part of?

Recently I have become a very close friend to the Amos Brand Goods team out of Wisconsin, giving me a lot of freedom and a lot of work to showcase their leather goods, along with some proper consulting work to move them into a line of Camera goods that I have helped them design along with battle testing the goods that they produce to give them insight for future work.

Along with that I have taken a lot of the Creative Direction at a local nightclub Habitat Living Sound producing posters for them, along with consultation, peppered with the events that I throw there. I’m a huge Electronic music lover at heart, and working with artists in that form has been a very insightful and fulfilling process for me to assist in getting a lot of them off the ground creatively. I love it.

007. What does working with Meraki Supply Co. mean to you?

Meraki is also a very huge and exciting project that I have taken on. I cant wait to work with Chelsea in tenuring the brand of the store along with providing some awesome images of the products in actual use on the series of explorations we have planned this summer. It was honestly such a perfect fit for the summer and the future of this year that I could ever ask for. The flexibility and trust that has gone into the relationship between Chelsea and myself is huge, I really see this partnership going a long way and a very exciting ride at that.

008. What do you want viewers to take away from your work?

I really would like my viewers to look at my work for the FEEL ultimately. Documenting is what I do, and stories are meant to be perceived through the series of captures that I take. Connection is really what I try to get across the transcendence of the feelings of my clients captured through images. I try and push myself to create experiences, not only in the moment but recollecting the day and the experience at the shoot, and to put those feelings forth to my viewers transferred as best as possible.

009. And last, but certainly not least, why do you take photos?

Photography has become a labor of complete love, its what I feel that I am best at and it ultimately fulfills me as an individual every project I undertake.
