Ahh… The Great White North

Our oft under-appreciated and extremely easy-going neighbors to the north are celebrating the unification of their three original provinces via Canada Day. We assume these celebrations include sloshing copious amounts of maple syrup on men that look like grizzly bears while ice skating on a thinly frozen lake.

Anyway, our good friends at Slowtide have figured a much less sticky way to celebrate, bringing you this limited edition towel featuring a beautiful Canadian stream photographed by Jeremy Koreski. 

“Jeremy Koreski grew up in Tofino, B.C., and had the good fortune to be in and around the ocean from an early age,” writes Slowtide co-founder Dario Phillips. “He started out in high school taking photos of my friends surfing our home beaches, and since then his still and motion work has focused on surfing, fishing, and the life and culture of the Canadian coast. We have known Jeremy for many years and are very excited to finally work with him on this beautiful towel.”

Where are you from and how did you get into photography? 

Jeremy Koreski: I grew up in Tofino and spent most of my time as a kid in the waves on at the skatepark. When I was 14, my dad gave me his Canon AE1 and I started documenting friends at the skatepark and out at the local beaches. Back then it was all film…no Insta anything…and I always looked forward to getting my film back. My favorite spot to shoot surf was Rosie Bay, back when there were no houses, only the odd campsite in the forest. 

Can you tell us a bit about how and where you shot this image?

The Technicolor towel image was shot while on assignment photographing a friends lodge @fishthedean on the central coast of BC. The river water really is that color and is from glacial melt. 

What is it like having a gallery in Tofino and being neighbors to Storm?

Having the gallery next to Storm is a dream. I’d been looking for a location for a long time and after having coffee with Allister and pitching the idea the concept grew from there. I owe a lot to Monte Clarke and Allister Fernie for helping make it happen!

Any advice to aspiring photographers?

Yeah, shoot photos because you have fun doing it.
