Kari Medig grew up in a cabin in northern British Columbia with parents who drove a ’73 Ford Bronco, wore rubber boots and made him go cross country skiing. They had matching Nikon FEs and used them to photograph wild mushrooms and other fungi. Kari inherited the cameras and started making his own pictures.

After a degree in biochemistry, Kari studied photography. He now travels the world making images for editorial and commercial clients.

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 and his partner Emily live near an airport in Nelson, BC.
