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'!!

Rocky Mountain Wood Tick - Tick Season is Here - Youtube



We brought home a stow-away!! It's tick season so make sure you check yourself out when you get home. This stow-away came from the Myra Canyon Trestles, near Kelowna, BC. I hope tourists know. There isn't any information up there about it. I don't remember them being so pretty . . . 

Wild Pacific Trail - Ucuelet, British Columbia - YouTube HD

British Columbia Parliament Buildings 2014 - Victoria, B C - YouTube



We visited the Parliament Buildings while in Victoria, BC. We wanted to attend the chamber and witness to goings on of parliament. They were debating the bill about the fate our agricultural land at the time. However, to do so, we would have left all possessions - pocket contents, cameras, etc. with the security folks. Why is that you ask? Because apparently people in the gallery have thrown things at the politicians below. We still have shoes . . .

BEE'S....MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION (+playlist)



For millions of years bee's have been crucial to the survival of our planet and all living things. Today bee populations have collapsed, bee colonies have vanished.

Plants are genetically altered like the round up resistant canola, plants with 'terminator' genes so the seeds are useless. Bees are dying from a toxic soup of pesticides and fungicides in the pollen.

Modern technology is changing the planet for good, there will be no putting the genie back in the bottle. Still there is something special about watching bees on a flower like it is meant to be.

All sequences were filmed on September 20 and 22 at the Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna, the winery is government certified ORGANIC. The bee's like it that way.
