• Freshies – Columbia Peak SW Face There is an aerial photographer in Washington who has become perhaps the single biggest source of visual inspiration for climbers and skier operating in the Cascade range. His name is John Scurlock, and his work is breathtaking. For years, a single shot of his has haunted me. At first I asked myself if it was possible […]
  • Freshies – November Pow in the North Cascades After four failed attempts to find decent early season skiing in the areas around Mount Rainier and Mount Baker, last weekend we finally scored.  Big.  Erik Svege called me on Saturday morning with a great idea.  Pack up the truck, drive north and try to make our way to the Hidden Lake Peaks Lookout by […]
  • Freshies – Fine Art Nudes for Floating Spa I was recently contacted by a friend and well established LA film producer with a very interesting project.  During his time working in the high stress world of commercial video, Rob discovered sensory deprivation tanks, or floating.  The idea is this: you’re enclosed in a light-proof and sound-proof tank where you float in 12 inches […]
  • Freshies – Autumn in the North Cascades Last weekend brought another spectacular bit of fall weather and allowed for more comfortable travel in the high mountains. But there’s a downside to all of this wonderful weather we’ve been having. Namely, our initial plans to camp at Wing Lake and climb Black Peak in the North Cascades were scrapped when we happened upon […]
  • Freshies – Autumn in the Alpine Lakes Last Saturday as I loaded my bike in the car for a day trip to the Stevens Pass Bike Park, I decided to run back inside and pack an overnight pack just in case I got inspired to spend the night outside. As the fog broke on our day of biking, I was duly inspired […]
  • New Photos and Galleries on scottrinck.com After much tweaking, head scratching and a fair measure of enjoyment, I present two new galleries on my website! I’ve broken the Landscapes and the Adventure photography into discrete galleries, and have added new work to each. I’ve also recently added new hi-res panoramic composites to the Panoramic gallery.  You can find it all by […]
  • Freshies – Mind Blowing Mount Rainier Panoramas We go to the mountains for a lot of different reasons; solitude, exercise, adventure, the challenge. You can find all of those things any given day in the hills. It can be foggy, rainy, overcast, or a blizzard, you’ll still get your mountain experience. Then there are days when you get all that and a […]
  • Freshies – Costa Rica Portraits As part of my recent assignment in Costa Rica for Intel/Gizmodo, I found myself shooting surfers in Santa Teresa, a charming surf town in the northwest part of the country. The locals in this town shred daily, hard. This goes for everyone, but what’s amazing is the ratio of hard charging women vs. the standard […]
  • Freshies – Costa Rica Scenics You know how sometimes a hangover is tempered a bit by fond memories from the night before? Well, this Freshies post from Costa Rica is an attempt for me to enact the same phenomenon, not in response to a hangover, but something a bit more vicious. I’ve been laid up for about a week suffering […]
  • Freshies – Mt. Baker North Ridge A couple of weekends ago, fresh off of a successful ski descent of the Mowich Face on Mt. Rainier, my friends Brian Fletcher, Jesse Thompson and I decided to have a go at climbing and possibly skiing the North Ridge of Mt. Baker. Everything went just superduper between the 2:30 am alarm at the trailhead […]
