About Me

My photo

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'!!

Alberta Flood Price Gougers - WTF?

So now the true color of some of the Calgary Entrepreneurs'  is coming out..Price gouging is against the law but it happens every time there is a major emergency, only thing is we used to see this south of the border so it's like a 'shock' when we see it here in Canada.



Alberta Flooding June 2013 Tarsands Connection

We might not be able to say definitively that there is a connection between the Alberta flooding of 2013 and carbon emission, climate change but I don't think anyone can say that there isn't.

The jet-stream is going wonky (scientific term). Pollutants from Asia drift over to North America in approx. 5 days.  I believe that all the major climate events are connected to global warming and man's output of carbon and use of fossil fuel.

The costs of this are already mounting in human cost, loss of life and in financial cost of rebuilding and preparing for further and worse events to come.

Make the industries pay for their part in this. Better yet stop the proliferation of fossil fuel.
