Your photographer:

Cole Pellerin

Cole Pellerin snowboarding in powder with camera in hand

Cole is a professional action sports and lifestyle photographer who works with major companies, brands, athletes and tourism groups across Canada and around the world.

With a snowboard, a downhill mountain bike or his camera, he brings talent, professionalism and a totally contagious passion for life to everything he does.  

A fellow adventurer in our We Live For This tribe.

He's an experienced heli-rider who has proven he can effortlessly flow with any group while capturing the shot.

Just another stoked buddy to have on board, but one that will leave your jaw dropped when you see the images he creates.

The Fine Print:

All guests booking photographer services must acknowledge and agree:

  • To grant full media release on the photos, since we may use them in marketing materials. (That means you might make the famous turn that shows up online or in our brochure!)
  • That by adding another person into the helicopter with your group, that additional weight will affect fuel consumption and possibly limit potential for extra vertical. 


What happens if we have bad weather?

Stormy weather can make for amazing photos too. Cole is experienced in dealing with challenging light conditions and will deliver his best whatever the weather. If the weather is bad enough that your heli-ski day is cancelled by Purcell, all photographer fees are refunded to you in full.

Can we book him short notice?

You can try, but availability won't be guaranteed. Your best bet is to plan ahead. Mountain weather is unpredictable hour by hour, so we don't recommend booking anything based on forecasts.

What are the payment terms?

A non-refundable deposit of half the fee (C$500) is due to guarantee the photographer. The remainder of payment is due at the same time as your final balance for heli-skiing fees, and is non-refundable. If booked after your final balance is complete, full payment is due to guarantee. Payment can be completed in one transaction or split amongst all participants.
