Vancouver: Alex Waber

Alex Waber lives in a playground, and he loves to use it. In his spare time he can be found backpacking, bike packing, day hiking and snowshoeing (and sometimes just lying on a beach) And thus he loves when he has to take his camera along to shoot a campaign.

Recent projects have taken him up mountains in Pemberton and Whistler to shoot for Arc’teryx, the local coast mountains and seaside cliffs of Vancouver to shoot Tilley’s iconic hats and their new clothing line. And in to the streets of the city to shoot active wear for local brand Daub + Design. Later this year he is off to the grasslands around Kamloops for a desert adventure and the north coast of Vancouver Island for a very rainy bike ride.

Alex is always trying to find new places to shoot so that when an out of town brand calls he can right away suggest a few options that would fit their creative direction. And working with a dedicated team he is able to set up lights and covers to get the look you need, even if it is a summer shoot in the dead of winter. The only thing he cannot control are goosebumps and snow.
