James Douglas is as raw as they come. Unabashedly unfiltered and a walking contradiction, he’s also refreshingly genuine and one of the most talented photographers you’re going to come across. His story will take you from childhood aspirations of shooting down the slopes to adult realities likely to make you uncomfortable at times.

So kick back and grab a beer, or be prepared to be motivated to have a killer workout. Either way, this is going to be a fun ride.
