About Me

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'!!

Lionfish Spearfishing - Mahahual Mexico Costa Maya



Lionfish, beautiful and dangerous.

The venomous lionfish has invaded the oceans of the world, and it has little to fear. In the Caribbean, it has no natural enemies. In fact, it is causing great distruction to Caribbean reefs because of this and because of it's voracious appetite.

The venom of the lionfish, delivered via an array of up to 18 needle-like dorsal fins, is purely defensive.The Lionfish relies on camouflage and lightning-fast reflexes to capture prey, mainly fish and shrimp.  A sting from a lionfish is extremely painful to humans and can cause nausea and breathing difficulties, but is rarely fatal.

But here's the thing, the lionfish is delicious to eat and that might be it's undoing, hopefully. At the very least the invasion will slow as lionfish finds it's way into ceviche and it's fabulous.

This is off Banco Chinchorro. The clarity of the water here in Costa Maya is amazing and seeing our guides free-dive down to the bottom so effortlessly and then swim around down there is something to behold.
