Speaker: Many may recognize Steve Fisher as a professional whitewater kayaker and his role in front the camera, but his role behind the lens has been equally profound. Alongside his freestyle competition record and innovations, his accomplishments in exploration river running are highlighted by dozens of first descents like the Yarlung Tsangpo in Tibet, The Irrawaddy in Myanmar, the Inga Rapids of the Congo and the Merced River of Yosemite National Park.

But Fisher has also directed, produced, and edited the film projects featuring many of his own adventures, as well as those of elite others. His production company, ‘Flowstate Narratives’ - formerly ‘Fish Munga’, has traveled to all corners of the earth in search of unique, authentic, and gritty adventure storytelling. With his athlete and production roles combined, he has been acknowledged and awarded by Nat Geo, Outside Magazine, GQ, Emmy, TED, X-Dance and more.

Fisher’s continued sponsorships with brands like Jeep, Red Bull and Jackson Kayak are a testament to his ability to turn dreams into reality. That, combined with his ability to attract the right team for each project, makes Steve Fisher not only highly capable, but also highly adaptable. He believes that great challenges come with the greatest rewards, and that one’s limits should be pushed to get the shot.

With a natural focus on specialty and adventure cinematography, Steve and his team recently filmed an inspiring project for Outside Television in which a crew of professional kayakers and athletes guided  fellow kayaker Lonnie Bedwell down the Zambezi River for his first time. There’s just one thing… He’s Blind! This is a river that has certainly been run - just never by a blind person. With the team first practicing paddling the  Class V lines of the Zambezi Rapids wearing blindfolds, the outcome was impressive, and just another example of how Fisher turns what many seem outrageous to some, into a viable project.  This will all be a part of his most recent project, “Dreamline - A fresh spin on kayak instruction” for which he raised $83,000 through a ‘Kickstarter’ crowdfunding campaign.

So how does he do it?  We’re proud to announce that he will joining us to explain in person at our annual Colorado Whitewater Spring Dinner….

Come enjoy dinner, drinks and an amazing speaker! YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS IT!
