While a significant number of the images displayed have been shot, and are owned by Cloud Nine Guides, and it's Guiding Team, many of the images you will find on this website have been graciously provided by a few additional artists, storytellers, creators and photographers who they themselves, are among threads in the fabric of our mountain community.
Below, you can learn a little more about the artists behind a select group of images on our site. Connect with the artists directly, read their stories, view their works, meander through social media feeds, or to inquire with respect to booking or assignment work.
For the days we can't be in the mountains... their images help keep the fires of motivation burning.
Based in Canmore, Alberta, Georgi (Silckerodt) has been shooting professionally for 10 years and creates unique portraits and content for an array of clients from many different walks of life. She considers herself to be a lifestyle and editorial photographer, preserving and celebrating our moments of personal reflection and professional endeavour.
Looking to create contrast in our our Guides portraits, our goal in working with Georgi was to create images which show depth to our team as individuals beyond the typical stereotypical images of Guides applying their craft.
For many of our crew, thinking of sitting for a shoot like this is about as nerve wracking as skiing a 60˚ couloir... until you meet Georgi. A true professional in her craft, we could not offer a stronger endorsement for her work. Our entire team can only offer an exceptional endorsement for her work - the perfect balance of refined creativity, professionalism, and one incredible personality.

"Mattias is one of the most prolific adventure photographers of our time. For the past quarter-century he has travelled the globe with some of the world's best skiers, mountain bikers and outdoor athletes on assignments for a vast array of editorial and commercial clients. With a strong dedication to document real stories, Fredriksson combines his skills as a photographer and journalist like few others. Add in a farmer’s work ethic and passionate personality and the result is an impressive body of work combining the subtleties of natural light and motion in a potent mix of quiet alpine moments, intense action, and creative portraiture." - Leslie Anthony.
Internationally recognized for his work, he has had 450 cover shots published world-wide.
