Guest Post: Photo Essay from Chris at the Grim Lab

| March 19, 2012 | 13 Comments

I first met Chris Moran from the Grim Lab when I did a ski season at  Mammoth Mountain in California a few years ago. His photographs have always inspired me and when he took off on a round the world adventure travel trip I knew he would take some amazing photos.

Below are just a handful of those photos from that trip. Enjoy!

Mammoth Snowboarding Grim Lab

Chris started his adventure travels from his base in Mammoth by finishing up the spring snowboarding season in style.

New Zealand Snowboarding Grim Lab

And landed in our home country of New Zealand just in time for the start of our winter ski season.

New Zealand Grim Lab

The South Island of New Zealand is home to some of the best scenery in the world. Mountains plummet from the sky to the lakes in the valleys below.

Tahiti Jandals Grim Lab

Jandals (flip flops) on the beach in Tahiti.

Thailand Grim Lab

Traditional boats, beaches and backdrops in Ko Phi Phi in stunning Thailand.

Indonesia Sunset Grim Lab

The sunsets on another day in paradise as surfers catch the last rays of sunshine in Indonesia.

India The Grim Lab

From the peaceful beaches of Southeast Asia to the madness that is India.

India The Grim Lab

India gives photographers so many opportunities to catch people in their day to day lives.

New York City Grim Lab

After a whirlwind trip around some of the most diverse and beautiful places in the world there is sometimes nothing better than seeing your home city (New York) skyline lit up.

Chris is still living the dream photographing various pro snowboarders, skaters and fashion models around California. Make sure you go check out his photography site The Grim Lab. Follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Those are great photos I like the one in New Zealand the best.

  2. Andrea says:

    Wow – these are awesome shots! You went to some amazing destinations.

  3. Ali says:

    Those are amazing photos! I especially like the sunsets, but I’m a sucker for sunset :-)

  4. Stunning photos. I especially enjoy the snowboard ones as I am in the alps right now in Val Thorens, unfortunately doing just skiing as the snow hasn’t been quite right for boarding.

  5. That second photo of the snowboarder catching air (is that the phrase all the cool kids are using?) is really awesome. I tried snowboarding once and almost died (on the bunny hill, no less), but Kali’s younger brother is really into it.

  6. Laura says:

    Wow! Another collection of breathtaking shots.

  7. Francy R says:

    Really stunning pictures!! In particular I love that of the sunset in Indonesia! So cute!

    I think I like the Jandals on the beach shot the best :D

  9. Wanderplex says:

    Incredible shots :) I actually really like the photo of the barber shop – love seeing “insights” into regular daily life in other places.

  10. Andrew says:

    I love pictures that play with perspective, especially really low angle stuff like the flip flops. Added bonus the depth of field effects. Love it.

  11. Turtle says:

    Awesome shots. My fave is the flip flops/jandals/thongs/things for your feet.
