November Cover Artist: Gabe Priestley

Gabe Priestley is a landscape, lifestyle, and action sports photographer and cinematographer. His main objective is to capture the feelings he loves to surround himself with: that chilly sunrise that took all energy to get out of the sleeping bag to see; the moment of no return after hucking a grab off a massive cliff. Gabe grew up in New Mexico where he began messing with cameras in middle school. Eventually, he moved to Albuquerque, NM and gained his Bachelors in Cinematic Arts at the University of New Mexico. Soon after graduating in 2013, Gabe began working as a photojournalist for a local news station in Albuquerque while continuing his own personal projects. In late 2016, he got the travel bug and left New Mexico for where he currently resides in Big Sky, Montana. Day to day, Gabe loves snapping away on his camera, chasing the dream while exploring new places be it by snowboard, hiking boots, skateboard, or dirt road.
