About the author

Chad de Alva

Chad grew up in Telluride, CO and was learning to ski the day after he started walking. As he grew up, he spent his time exploring the San Juan Mountains on his mountain bike in the summer and on his skis in the winter. He picked up a camera in high school after breaking his collar bone twice–if he could not participate in his favorite sports, he was going to take photos of his friends riding and skiing. He then interned under the photo editor of the local paper to improve his craft and spent more and more of time behind the lens capturing images to tell the stories of his favorite sports and adventures. As digital cameras started to capture video, he was quick to adapt and started shooting video along with still images.

GoPro cameras had not been invented yet, but inspired by ski and mountain bike movies of the day, Chad started jerry-rigging cameras to his helmets to so that he could attempt to replicate some of the shots found in his favorite ski and bike movies. Thankfully, SLR bodies are now environmentally sealed, and GoPro cameras can take a beating so he is not actively destroying cameras–as fast.

Chad was officially introduced to hunting in the fall of 2012 when he went on an Arizona unit 9 archery elk hunt. Under a moonless sky in an endless Ponderosa forest, Chad struggled to find sleep while listening to bulls screaming at each other. The hunt was a mind blowing experience for Chad and set the hook on this sport called hunting. Less than a month later, Chad found himself on an all-night sheep recovery in Arizona’s unit 10. The adventure of 30 miles of hiking in a 24-hour period and watching a good friend tag out on a once in a lifetime hunt made Chad a hunter for life.

In early 2013, Chad started flying Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to add a new dimension to his work. Today, Chad shoots photos and videos to tell stories and inspire people.
