Meet Grant Robinson (@gforcephoto), based in West Kelowna, B.C. grant is sharing 7 photos to showcase some of the beautiful trails in the Thompson Okanagan Region.
What do you like most about the region you live in?
The weather and my neighbors @payntersfruitmarket
How long have you been a photographer?
What or who got you started in photography?
My granddad bought me my first camera and kept me supplied in film.
How would you describe your style?
My wordsmith friend Seb Kemp said, “His photos … deliver a sense of empathy because they are relatable scenarios, moments between the great moments…there’s a sense of summer childishness, reminders of the halcyon days of youth, and invitations for us all to try and get away with something.”
What camera do you like to shoot with?
My favourite is an old Canon 1dMk3
Do you shoot other action sports? If so which ones? What has been your most memorable assignment and why?
It’s always the last one cause that’s freshest in my memory, so…the last assignment I did for MountainBikingBC…to the Kootenays and beyond.
Who is your favourite rider to shoot and why?
Olly Wilkins or Richard Cunynghame; because I’ve worked with them the most and they are my favorite riders to watch.
What is your favourite trail and why?
My backyard is hard to beat right now, Smith Creek, West Kelowna, aside from that probably Parkloypa in Hafjell, Norway or Hopeful in Panorama.
Rainbows and sun flares all day long baby. Thanks Mother Nature, you’re the best.
