Kari Medig grew up in a cabin in northern British Columbia. His parents drove a '73 Ford Bronco, wore rubber boots and made him go cross-country skiing. They also owned matching Nikon FEs which they used to photograph wild mushrooms and other fungi of the boreal forest. Kari inherited the cameras and started making his own pictures. Here are a few of the notable folks he works with:
Outside, Air Canada's enRoute, AFAR, D2, Monocle, Telegraph Magazine, The Atlantic, Skiing, Bike, Powder, The Globe and Mail, Bombardier, Destination BC, Google, Rogers Wireless, The North Face, Norrøna.
In 2015 Powder magazine produced the magazine's first book on Kari's three week journey exploring skiing at stops on Russia's Trans-Siberian Railway.
Kari is especially comfortable in snowy places, steep or flat. He has a penchant for 120 film, drinks two coffees a day and relates well to folks with beards. He now lives in Nelson, BC with his partner Emily.
