Garibaldi Provincial Park & the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens

I went for a 2 days hike a few days ago in Garibaldi Provincial Park, and brought my recently purchased Canon EF 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens with me. This lens provides 180° circular fisheye images on full-frame EOS models. In other words, a full 360 degree field of vision in the middle of the frame!

I wanted to share with you a few shots I took with this absolutely amazing lens!
This lens is razor sharp even wide open! I couldn’t get the full circular shot as I am using a Canon 1D Mark IV APS-H sized sensor (1.3x crop factor).

I didn’t use the 8-15 lens for the following shots, I just wanted to share those photos with you as Garibaldi Provincial Park is one of the most beautiful hike I have done in the area!

Eliott Lapotre visiting Whistler BC

It is a bit hard to work on Mountain Bike videos when we have so much snow outside, here in Val d’Isère. But here it is! A short edit I filmed with Eliott when he came to Canada last summer.

The trails are on Whistler Mountain Bike Park – Freight Train & No Joke.

Enjoy…

A few stills from the video:

Website Update

Summer season is already over, I just came back to France a couple of weeks ago after spending 6 months in Whistler BC Canada.
The winter is starting slowly here in Europe so I had a bit of time to work on the website.
I added a Video section where you can see (if you haven’t seen already) a great video with Vincent Pernin that we filmed last summer on Trespasser, one of the gnarliest, steepest, hardest and most technical hidden trail you can find in Whistler BC.
I also added an Editorial Photo Album with some published photos, a Gear section with all my actual Camera Equipment, and a Partners section with Clients, Partners or People I’ve worked with.
Also, now you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, or  Pinkbike, I added a little logo on top of the Website with all the links.
I’m back in Val d’Isère for the winter season now, the resort opens tomorrow and I can’t wait to go skiing!!!
I’ll try to keep you updated as much as I can during the winter season.
Well, time to pick up my season pass now, enjoy the website! I hope you like it 😉
