Cathlin’s photography is inspired by the awkward and sentimental experiences she had growing up. She is drawn to the hauntingly beautiful things, to wide open spaces, and the type of energy you can't put your finger on. Cathlin's images are remarkable for her use of light and tension. Cathlin is a mom of two littles, Henry and Cleo, and she spends most of her time with them. She grew up in the middle of nowhere in Iowa on a lake, surrounded by vast skies and empty highways. This is where her love for water was born: her formative years were spent swimming laps on swim team, water skiing, boating, and falling asleep to the sound of lapping water.

Favorite Surf Spot: Bolinas, CA
Favorite Carve Item: Talora Tight
Meg has lived out of a VW van on the Spanish coast, camped at mountain summits in fifteen below zero temps, flown in helicopters in search of snow and new terrain, swum in the ocean during hurricanes, ridden horses in a herd of wild elk and driven across the country with a camera in her hands more times than she can count – all for the sake of making meaningful images. Having a better understanding of the unique environments and the cultures of the world keeps her driven to protect and celebrate the landscapes she knows and loves. It keeps her hungry and inspired to capture the lifestyle and personalities that define her outdoor pursuits. Forever inspired, always exploring.

As a child, Nicole was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, losing her right leg above the knee. In 2002, she stepped onto a ski slope for the first time, and found her passion in snowboarding. In 2006 she became the first above-knee amputee, male or female, to compete in adaptive snowboarding. Her accomplishments spearheaded global demand for prosthetic knee technology and played a fundamental role in the introduction of snowboarding to the Paralympic roster. Nicole represented the U.S. in the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games and is an 8X World Cup Medalist. Nicole is also an accomplished motivational speaker and holds a degree in business management.
