Colin Field is an outdoor adventure photographer, writer and editor, based near Collingwood, Ontario.


I started on the absolute ground floor of photojournalism: The ‘Zine. The instant I learned about these photocopied manifestos I had to make one. So at the age of thirteen, armed with ¬†my sister’s Nikon EM, some Sharpies, a stapler and a dot-matrix printer I started a career that would span the next few decades. Focused on BMX, the GROGL ‘Zine (Get Rad Or Get Lost), still prints sporadically.

From there, between getting my bachelor of arts in anthropology and a bachelor of journalism, I bicycle toured through North and West Africa, taught English in Korea, worked as a bicycle courier in London, and hitchhiked throughout Australia and North America. Some freelance gigs came and went (but I mostly just planted trees), before I landed a job with SBC Media. I was assistant editor at SBC Kiteboard and Windsport magazines. I then moved on to the associate editor position at SKIER magazine.

Now I’ve moved on to become the editor-at-large with Mountain Life Magazine. I shoot photos and write for a number of freelance clients both in an editorial and commercial capacity.
