Trustin Timber is a producer, photographer and creative director always striving to showcase the wilder, rugged side of life. He has a personal passion for wilderness adventure, woodworking, and cooking with fire. He grew up spending most of his time outdoors camping, fishing and building forts on the family homestead in Saskatchewan, Canada. As a teenager his interest in the arts and photography took hold and catapulted him into the big cities shooting, directing, and producing fashion campaigns and editorials all over the world. He built a reputation with a number of international publications as a producer in Canada who could put together shoots in the most remote locations. He took the Elle magazine team into the clouds of the Rocky Mountains of Whistler and Marie Claire magazine on an Ontario canoe adventure.
In stark contrast to his work in fashion, he has also shot documentaries and spent many days with trappers in log cabins on the trap line documenting the fur trade. He lived with a Cree family on the shores of Hudson's Bay documenting a traditional way of life that is rapidly disappearing and built a 13’ Ojibway longnose birch bark canoe with legendary builder Tom Buyers. Most recently he is finishing up the log cabin he is building himself from self-harvested timber.
Note from Ralph that seems appropriate. Trustin was probably the first "outside" person who understood and appreciated our Hardcore Luxury concept. He was working in fashion and picked up on what we were doing very early on as something different. I remember on our first call he was wishing us luck because he knew what we were trying to do was unprecedented. I’ve felt comfortable with Trustin since the beginning. He has a sense of art and fashion and creates some great work with his hands as well as with his mind. I could tell immediately he was at a level few can match, and so it was a kick for me that he likes our clothing.
This little story is illustrative of my relationship with Trustin, and it's funny ... A couple of years ago, I was sort of proud of myself for adding some text into a photo that I posted on Instagram. I was still patting myself on the back when my daughter Denali phoned saying "Dad, you used THE FIRST FONT you found, didn't you? That font is NOT appropriate ...". Somewhat (only slightly) chastened, I thought about what Denali said. The phone rings again, and it's Trustin saying "Ralph, you used THE FIRST FONT you found, didn't you?" THANKS TRUSTIN! GREAT TO WORK WITH YOU! --- Ralph
