DanSun Photo Art

Daniel Sundahl kindly donated all of the photo art for the Heroes Project website.

Daniel creates vibrant and authentic images that are a result of his experiences. If he has an emotional connection to an image, then he considers that artwork.

When he gets commissioned to create something, that’s what he is trying to achieve for his client.

I’ve been a full-time firefighter and paramedic since 2003, and that’s where I get all my motivation for my emergency services artwork. I have a real passion for raising mental health and PTSD awareness for my profession. You can’t do this job and not get a little crazy.

Thank you for visiting my page and feel free to email me through the ‘contact me’ link.

The GP100

The GP 100 is a community group in Grande Prairie who meets once every quarter to donate money to a selected registered charity.

Each member commits to donating $100 at each meeting. At the meetings we invite 3 charities to send a representative to speak to the group. At the end of the presentations the group votes on the charities, and the winning charity is then presented with over $10,000. The money is sent directly to the charity, and the charity is responsible for issuing each donating member with a donation receipt.

At the end of the meeting, new charities are nominated for the next meeting. Three of the nominated charities are selected at random, and invited to the next meeting.

It’s that easy. 100 men. 1 hour. $10,000+ donated.

Ole Smokes Coffee

Like most great things, the creation of smoked coffee was somewhat accidental. At one point we had wanted to try to infuse coffee beans with hemp, and in the process of burning the hemp, we noticed that the coffee beans had become smoked rather than roasted. We figured we were on to something amazing and began experimenting with different types of wood to smoke our beans.

WAPITI RIVER OUTDOORS

Wapiti River Outdoors has developed a new breed of elk reeds. Some people have a natural gag reflex when it comes to reeds. Our reeds have anti-gag technology built right into them. With the design of our reeds the gag reflex is reduced substantially for most people. Enjoy the freedom of being hands free while calling elk.  Very little air and tongue pressure is required to get a wide range of tones while out elk hunting. These reeds work right out of the package and in most cases need zero breaking in !!

I bought my first elk reed in 1990 and out bowhunting 

I went. I went the whole elk season without being able to make a single sound with that reed. 

After years of buying elk reeds 5 at a time trying to find the perfect one that worked right out of the package. I took it upon myself to develop a reed with a constitant stretch in the latex, producing the quality sounds one would expect from a reed.  Times have changed and quality products are now more readily available.

We will let the elk tell the rest of the story on how our elk reeds sound!  After all if the elk like the sounds our reeds produce and our customers can use them easily it’s a win win!

Now we want all of you to enjoy the same thrill of calling either in competition or while calling in a huge screaming bull elk that comes in slobbering all over himself !!

Enjoy the new age of calls from Wapiti River Outdoors !!

SINISTER SPORTS

Sinister Sports (formerly Full Moon Adventure Company) began in 1999 with the goal of creating the toughest, most exciting endurance events in Canada.

The directors have changed over the years and so has the format of our events. Originally FMAC hosted multi-sport adventure races, like the 36-hour Full Moon in June, but later branched into duathlons, and eventually turned its focus to ultramarathons.

The Sinister 7 Ultra began in 2008 with just 160 runners. Now we fill cap at 1,600 racers and the event fills up in seconds. We always work hard to bring your the best events possible.

In 2013 the Sinister 7 Ultra won the Travel Alberta Alto Award for Sustainable Tourism. Sinister 7 Ultra was selected by the Alto judges due to our commitment to reducing waste, our cultural sensitivity, and our support of the community.

Sinister Sports directors regularly volunteer in the community and assist with trail maintenance. We also make several donations to different non-profits to support a variety of different initiatives throughout the year.

We are proud of our Alberta and Rocky Mountain heritage.

Check out our website today and register for one of amazing adventure races.

DANSUN PHOTO ART

ABOUT DANSUN

Daniel was born in Alberta, Canada. Taking up a global residency as an English language teacher in Egypt, Mexico, Indonesia, and Japan, he is now a firefighter and paramedic for the City of Leduc.

His love of photography began on his travels, and as his technique developed, he started to produce a blend of photography and graphic art, which he calls Photo Art.

The majority of Daniel’s work involves emergency services photography. It involves an emotional connection to the artist as most of his pieces are based on actual emergency calls he has attended as a paramedic and firefighter. He’s passionate about reducing the stigma of PTSD for first responders and he uses his art to raise awareness of occupational stress injuries worldwide.

He is a published artist and writer and has two art books produced of his works. Articles of his work have been featured in Canadian Paramedicine, Journal of Emergency Medicine (JEMS), Fire Rescue Magazine in Greece and EMS World Magazine. His art is recognized worldwide and he travels internationally speaking on his art and personal experiences with occupational stress injuries. He’s a pre-hospital educator, a professional public speaker, photographer, and photo editor.

Daniel enjoys combining the technical and artistic elements of his work. Each piece can take several days or weeks of processing until he feels it’s ready. He continues to travel often and gains inspiration for his art from his experiences.
