Rank #1: #16 - Social Media & Loneliness
It's something I have been chatting to lots of people about lately and I am not full against social media at all I just think many people are feeling this way. I am slowly starting to find my balance with using these tools and have basically cut my usage down to a quarter of what it used to be which has made me way more focused.

Guy’s Work: http://bit.ly/2tNwzZI
I’ve always been passionate about photography and sports, in particular skiing and snowboarding. This along with my love of people, travel and nature constantly drives me to explore and experience new horizons. I feel that the camera lens is a means to capture and combine the essence of natural backdrops along with the human force of extreme athletic performance.
I love photographing brilliant people in incredible surroundings with an emphasis on movement, speed and danger. My goal is to record striking and powerful photos that evoke emotion and fascination.I grew up in the hills surrounding Jerusalem and many of my local photographs echo both the uniqueness, divisions and similarities of the different faiths and cultures that live in the area. Being raised in a small country that’s never out of the news makes for a pressure cooker type of environment. That background is a part of what attracts me to vast mountain ranges and the warm camaraderie of the extreme sports world.

Here is where his photography career began. Pursuing the sports he loved Mason became one of the most prolific Whistler ski, snowboard and mountain bike photographers in an area saturated with camera talent. As his passion for the lens grew as did his repertoire of sports. Surfing had always been an infatuation for Mason and it was only natural for him to shoot it.

Rank #7: #08 - Bruin Alexander: Writer & Photographer

Almost two years ago I had a chunk of money saved, was inquiring about down-payments and in the midst of finishing my junior year of university. A concussion had, rather abruptly, ended my hockey career and despite a well constructed front, I was confused. Really confused. Around that time I picked up an old 35mm camera and had a university professor tell me I ought to pursue my book. Fast forward and you might find me sitting in a cafe somewhere drinking a black coffee and reading a good book, same as always. It hasn’t been a smooth transition, the learning curve with photography turned out to be a lot steeper than expected, and I remain by far the toughest critic of my work. What it has done is fill the void left by the loss of athletics, and I treat it with just as much intensity and hard work. The book has had highs and lows, good and bad days, I guess thats true for all of it. I took the money and invested it, now I fill the my gas tank through licensed images, commercial work and writing gigs. Living in my Cherokee this year has allowed me to climb mountains in Alberta, surf in Oahu, tramp through the southern alps of New Zealand, watch the Yankees in the Bronx, road trip around Iceland, sip whisky in Scotland, scream from the edge of the great granite cliffs in Yosemite, get lost on long nights wandering the cobblestone streets of London and stargaze from the Grand Canyon. I woke up with the sun most mornings and spent evenings scribbling in a journal from the front seat of the car, it's been an amazing ride.
