I am JCVdude aka Joe Vass. As a Freelance Videographer, Producer & Photographer my passion & focus is travel and travel related videos; to show the incredible beauty of destinations in the hopes of intercepting and inspiring others to travel. I have chosen YouTube, as my delivery system as it is the World's 2nd Largest Search Engine, it accomodates HD & 3D video and in using it, we are viewed in over 200 Countries World Wide.

With my partner, Cindy Aspden, our JCVdude YouTube Channel is the 17th Most Viewed Channel All Time in Canada. With an average of 100,000 views per day to our broadcast channel, we continue to be featured by Mainstream Media: Google Canada in the London Free Press reported, "Another wildly successful Canadian YouTube star is JCVdude."

Our collections of videos include a wide variety of content as we explore our world and it’s beauty; incredible alpine resorts, beautiful Caribbean resorts, Jazz Festivals & interviews with the great Buddy Guy, Talent Contests, Tours, Nature, Cuisine, Sporting Events, Arts & Culture and more, including Charitable and Non-Profit Events. 

Our philosophy is 'YOLO' ~ You Only Live Once. Tomorrow isn't promised to any of us so live life to it's fullest and with passion. My goal has always been to travel and document through video, the world and it's wonders and beauty. I film and produce video to allow my viewers the feeling that they are 'there' - in the destination themselves and also to whet their appetite to go ~ to travel and see & experience for themselves. 

We love travel! We are passionate about travel and passionate about documenting our travel. Never without our cameras, our day starts before the sun rises and ends late into the night. This is our passion!! 'YOLO'!!

Howler Monkeys in Mexico!

Howler Monkeys are native to South and Central American Forests, with 9 recognized species. Like other animals, they are threated by human predation, habitat destructions and being captured for captivity. 

Howler Monkeys range in size from 56 to 92 cm, excluding their tail which can be equally as long. They typically live in groups of 10-15 animals having 1-3 adult males in the group. 

Howler Monkeys are considered to be the loudest land animal as a result of an enlarged hyoid bone (lingual bone) a horseshoe-shaped bone in their neck. The main vocals consist of loud, deep guttural growls or 'howls' which can be heard throughout the day. As Guinness Book of World Records notes, their vocalizations can be heard clearly for 3 miles (4.8 km). 

These Howlers were living in the trees in Playcar, Mexico - moving through the tree tops between the Sandos Resort to the Iberostar Tucan Quetsel Resort. They eat the leaves and the fruit. The resorts discourage human contact other that photographing and filming. However, there is one Resort Friend who has gained the trust of one of the males in this group.
