An Awe-Inspiring Art Gallery at Outdoor Retailer


(Hastings, Minn.) December 27, 2013 – During the Outdoor Retailer trade show (January 22-25, 2014), Storm Creek will be hosting an art gallery, displaying some of the most breath-taking images capture through the lens of Patrick Orton. Orton was a freelance photographer for Storm Creek, as well as a number of leading companies in ski, outdoor and adventure. He was an avid outdoorsman and remarkable photographer. Sadly in July of 2013, Patrick unexpectedly passed away at the age of 24.

In honor of Patrick, Storm Creek will be displaying his photography in their booth (#18039) at Outdoor Retailer. Visitors will have the chance to view and win one of his framed photos by entering a daily drawing during the trade show. In addition, Storm Creek will donate $5 in each drawing participant’s name to the Patrick Orton Live Your Dreams scholarship fund, a fund established by George and Kristina Orton, Patrick’s parents.

Storm Creek Beanie

Patrick was not only an established and recognized photographer at a young age, but he also was dedicated to mentoring others in his craft. While his work graced the covers and pages of The Ski Journal, Outside Magazine and National Geographic, he also found time to work with young people in living their dreams of becoming accomplished photographers. It was this passion of his that led George and Kristina Orton to creating the Live Your Dreams scholarship fund.

Like others, Storm Creek saw the gift Patrick had in his keen eye and adventurous ways to deliver an image that has been used in helping the company develop its brand imagery. Doug Jackson, founder of Storm Creek simply states, “Upon meeting Patrick we were immediately inspired by his work and are forever grateful for his both his beautifully creative images and devotion to Storm Creek.”

Storm Creek has developed a beanie hat that is symbolic of Patrick in so many ways. Visitors to Storm Creek’s booth will also be able to purchase a Live Your Dreams beanie


(US$15) with all the profits from the sales of the beanie given to the Live Your Dreams scholarship fund.
