MEC Ambassador Reuben Krabbe

Reuben Krabbe

Discipline: Photography Ambassador

Calgary, AB
Whistler, BC

More than just a guy with a camera, Reuben skis and mountain bikes alongside the athletes he documents. His skills as a skier and rider inform his work, and his craft and vision has taken him everywhere from skiing in the Yukon to mountain biking in Alabama.

Reuben draws inspiration from the activity itself, but also mixes in concepts from physics, art history or music. His photos have won competitions such as Deep Summer and the Banff Photographer Shootout.

“I shoot sports because it’s what comes naturally. It’s like eating or dreaming – it’s simply the thing my brain does without even being pushed.”
