New Mexico Roadscapes

February 2, 2015 by Caroline


Dec. 22, 2014 – Somewhere in New Mexico.

Driving through New Mexico, the light was awesome. So, I pulled off the highway and took a few photos! Then drove straight into a snowstorm.

Bosque del Apache

January 26, 2015 by Caroline


I always assumed I lacked the patience to be a wildlife photographer. But I wanted to find out. The Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge, a few miles off the highway, near Socorro, New Mexico, was the place.

For an introvert like me, non-stop travel and people can be exhausting. After months of plane-hopping in Europe, I craved the desert. And I wanted to drive there.

Everything I needed was in my truck: water, food, camera gear, a sleeping bag. I relished the freedom. It felt so American. Here are some photos from the Bosque!

Sayulita, Mexico

March 28, 2013 by Caroline

I just spent a week in Mexico with a couple of girlfriends – the first real vacation I’ve taken in years. The best part about it was leaving my laptop at home. Unencumbered by technology, I was able to focus on the following three important things – surfing, eating tacos and shooting photos (for fun!) Here’s a selection of images from the trip – street portraits, soccer games, delicious food and beautiful light. Enjoy!

Fila Shoot with Boone Speed and Alex Puccio

This past June I assisted Portland-based photographer Boone Speed with a photo shoot in NYC for FILA. Boone’s not just a super talented artist and an all-around inspiring guy. He used to be a Fila-sponsored climber back in the day, which made the shoot – featuring the company’s newest athlete, pro climber Alex Puccio – that much more fitting. And Boone definitely knows how to shoot climbing, even in NYC.

The North Face – Patagonia – Running

September 13, 2011 by Caroline


Check out this video of our spring trip to Patagonia with The North Face ultrarunners Tracy Garneau and Hal Koerner. It was incredible to be part of this shoot, and super exciting to see the end result of our hard work. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to run, climb or test gear. Patagonia might be the most beautiful place in the world. Great job Camp4 Crew!

Patagonia Behind the Scenes

May 9, 2011 by Caroline

Patagonia, photo by Caroline Treadway.

This past March we spent two weeks shooting photo and video in southern Argentina for The North Face. My long time friend (and talanted photographer in her own right)Caroline Treadway came along to assist. I thought it might be fun to get her perspective on the whole shoot — especially because she is a blogging ninja. So I asked her whip up something. Here’s what she had to say:

The North Face could have shot their fall/winter performance line anywhere. But the cool thing about TNF (and they’re not paying me to write this) is that they wanted photos of their athletes using and abusing the latest gear in real conditions – a reflection of the company’s desire to tell authentic, athlete-centered stories that are not only inspiring but good marketing, and great for me, because it meant a trip to Patagonia. Check out the rest of my behind the scenes post on Tim’s blog!

I hiked up to Chaos Canyon today and this is what it looked like. Still a little early for rock climbing…

Oahu’s Hidden Temple: Mu Ryang Sa

April 17, 2011 by Caroline

I flew to Oahu to rock climb and collaborate on an article for Deadpoint Magazine (coming out soon!) with Abbey Smith and Jason Kehl. But the second morning, we woke to heavy black skies and flash flood warnings via NOAA that quickly proved accurate. It was December, and though we’d heard rumors of possible rogue waves on the northwest short of Oahu, our destination, we hadn’t expected rain, and certainly not this violent onslaught of precipitation.Luckily Oahu is more than just beaches and maitais! Check out the photo gallery here!

Tea to go!

March 31, 2011 by Caroline

Aladdin Essential Tea Infuser

Back when I drank coffee, I was a coffee snob. Actually, I was an espresso snob. I drank dry cappuccinos and would only sink to regular coffee in France, or at a gas station in the middle of nowhere without a Starbucks, low moments that can befall even the pickiest coffee drinkers.

These days I’m a tea snob. I like green tea, preferably the expensive kind that tastes like a freshly mown Japanese lawn. When I fly, I bring tea bags. When I travel places where I suspect there’s a scarcity of green tea, I bring loose tea, the good stuff. It just makes traveling a little more….civilized. Read the rest of the review here!

3 Ways to Outsmart Spring

March 27, 2011 by Caroline

The mega classic Stanley thermos.

I know it’s Spring, but seriously, it’s still cold outside. The sun feels warm, especially after months of vitamin D deprivation, but step into the shade and you’re right back to winter. It’s tricky to properly prepare for Spring adventures. Whether you’re sport climbing at a local crag, hiking into the high alpine or bike commuting to work, layer too lightly and you’ll freeze your butt off. Dress too warmly and you’ll sweat and curse the heavy pack you’re lugging around all day. Even in desert climes like southern Utah, New Mexico and Texas, where the difference between sun and shade can feel like summer vs. winter, spring requires you prepare for both seasons at once. I’ve found a few key ways to outsmart spring’s fickle temps. These three items will keep you warm in the shade, cool in the sun, and won’t slow you down with winter weight.
