Meet Ricardo Lau, this week’s guestagrammer

I’ve often been stopped in my tracks by Ricardo Lau (aka @cardobear’s) photography, so I asked him if he’d share some of his work and the man behind the lens as our guestagrammer this week.

“I never found myself interesting and tend to be a bit shy so this will be a first,” he admitted, and then dove straight in. (Because this is how we show up and grow community. By outbraving our shyness… and finding welcome and encouragement.)

Hi! My name is Ricardo Lau and I'll be taking over this week. I've never found myself interesting and tend to be a bit shy so this will be a first. I am a Canadian born Chinese-Bolivian. I didn't feel like my life was going anywhere in the city with fake friends and the weekend parties. My GF and I decided to move to Banff to pursue a life of skiing, hiking and mtb. Eventually the party life caught up with me but a miracle happened. My son was born. Prices were going up and expenses were getting higher so we packed up and moved out west with a last minute decision to live in Pemberton. I came out here to be a ski bum but ended up becoming a Fishing Guide for the last 3 years. Like clockwork, the Whistler bubble found me. Ive had my ups and downs but now I take it one day at a time. This year I decided to take time off to spend more time with my kid and live a healthier lifestyle. I'm hoping to share some photos to remind everyone that life is short and should not be wasted. Looking forward to sharing my week! ✌
