We first became acquainted with the Salmon Sisters via Instagram when we stumbled onto their profile through mutual friends. Needless to say, we've been big fans of these two amazing women and their brand ever since. Sisters Claire and Emma Teal are from a fishing family in Alaska and their childhood revolved around the fishing season. After attending university on the East Coast, the sisters returned home to help build their family's fishing business and promote awareness for sustainable fisheries. From these shared goals they created Salmon Sisters. Keep reading to learn more about their idyllic childhood in remote Alaska and how Salmon Sisters is striving to make a difference while celebrating a valuable culture.

As a photographer and environmentalist, Meg Haywood-Sullivan has traveled across the country more times than she can count, been flown in helicopters in search of deep snow, and ridden a horse amongst a herd of wild elk - all the while capturing her stunning surroundings with her skilled eye behind the camera lens. Often traveling with her boyfriend Charles Post, who is an ecologist and fellow environmentalist and photographer, Meg and Charles are always in search of new environments and cultures to study and photograph. We were lucky to chat with Meg in-between adventures to discuss what brought her into the world of photography, how she uses social media, and what keeps her thrilled about what she does.
I first discovered photographer Emily Maye when I saw her work in Tracksmith's first lookbook. Not only were the compositions beautiful, but the way she shot her subjects - the athletes - was incredible. These were not glamorous photos of effortless athleticism. Emily had captured the real physical and emotional effort of sport, in all its glory and pain. She has broad and impressive portfolio of commercial work for brands like Trek and Rapha and touring with athletes with events like the Tour de France. I'm so thrilled to have had the opportunity to chat with her about her work and what draws her to the world of sport.
