James Drake

Hi! My name is James Drake and I am from Nelson, in beautiful British Columbia. I enjoy spending my winters ski touring, and in the summers I am either mountain biking or hiking on adventures in the backcountry! My other passion is photography, I love to capture the places and adventures life takes me. I am really excited to be a part of Big Chief’s creative team, for I see it as a way to push my photography skills further, and to expand my knowledge in the social media world! Another interesting thing about me is I professionally build hiking, and mountain bike trails for a living! I love this job for I travel around, allowing me to adventure in areas I wouldn’t normally visit. If you’d like to see some of my past adventures, or see what I am up to next, take a look at my Instagram page!
