The Proof: Ryan Nadeau

I am a mountain man. Born here in Whistler, I have a natural passion for the mountains that runs to my core. I spend much of my time and energy playing or exploring in the mountains of BC both in the summer and the winter. Part of this passion is an appreciation of nature and living things. This appreciation shows in the art and photography I do, which predominantly features epic mountain landscapes or rich forest scenes. I am also a big mountain and backcountry skier. I do a lot of snowmobile access touring and mountaineering, and a lot of my photography features professional and semi professional athletes getting rad in cool places. I am a professional builder, I do graphic design and web development, I do photography and digital art, and I am an extreme athlete.
