    JONATHAN CHERRY: What did you want to be growing up?

    PAT VALADE: I wanted to be a fighter pilot when I was quite young, and I wanted to be a musician, photography came about later in life but now I couldn’t/wouldn’t want to do anything else.

    JC: Who or what is inspiring you at the moment?

    PV: Lately I have been inspired by a number of things. The resurgence of small print based publications is incredibly important, also the joy of working collaboratively with other artists. I am constantly surrounded by talented people, Noah Spivak, Mikhayla Roht, David Roth, and the work of people I look up to such as Scott Pommier, Tim Barber, Arto Saari to name a few. I’m always inspired by design, light, music and the natural environment.

    JC: What are you up to right now?

    PV: Currently I am planning a 10,000 KM photo/motorcycle trip for the end of the summer documenting certain issues across Canada and the US. I am also working on a collaborative project that brings photographers, filmakers, designers and local artists together which I am very excited about.

    JC: Have you had mentors along the way?

    PV: I have been lucky in that I have met a lot of encouraging professionals in my photo life so far, sometimes I find the photography community has a tendency of being a little too doomsday about the photo industry, and I’ve been lucky in my life to have met people as enthusiastic about photography as I am. I can’t thank people like Andrew Snucins and Marshal Chupa for motivating me to take photography seriously. Arni Haraldsson, Kyla Mallett, Steven Waddell and Scott Connaroe have been a huge help in beating down the ego.

    JC: Where are you based right now and how is it shaping you?

    PV: I am currently based in Vancouver, BC on the west coast of Canada. The amount of creative people on the West Coast is staggering, and more and more I find myself working on projects outside of strictly photography and to me this is very exciting, I think photography is very open at this point in time, and working with people passionate about where they live and what they do is something that I love.

    JC: One piece of advice to photography graduates?

    PV: I think it is important for anyone to realize that in this day and age you have to create your own opportunities. The importance of photography has changed, it’s up to a new generation of artists to decide why it’s still one of the most important art forms.

    JC: If all else fails - what is your plan B?

    PV: My plan B is to not have a plan B therefore making plan A the only option.

    JC: Is it important to you to be a part of a creative community?

    PV: One of the reasons I love photography so much is because it has allowed me to meet so many amazing and creative people, being part of a creative community is immensely important to me. Having people to bounce ideas off of, get critical feedback and having people around to inspire you everyday is why I love what I do so much.

    Thomas Kneubühler.

    Electric Mountains, 2009

    Kneubühler’s Electric Mountain series commanded attention by capturing the eerie nighttime illuminations of Quebec ski resorts in photos that were both ironically picturesque and seriously documentary. Like something out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, his photos show a strange, abandoned recreational universe where the lit slopes seem like sign code directed to the stars. (Richard Rhodes)

    Get lost in these breathtaking images of people finding peace in nature by Vancouver-based photographer Elizabeth Gadd. The 21-year-old photographs her subjects overlooking breathtaking vistas, their backs turned to the camera as they contemplate the stunning landscapes before them.
