About Margus Riga

Margus Riga was born in Estonia and grew up in the suburbs of Toronto before moving out west to Whistler for most of the 1990's where he established himself on the ski-bum scene. During a brief hiatus in early 2000, he moved back to Toronto to attend a journalism program at Ryerson University and began honing his skills behind the lens. After graduating, he moved back to Vancouver and published a fine art photo magazine, only to discover he was happier working with the photos than the magazine, which consequently lead to his leap into full-time photography in 2009. Just three years in, Margus has already made a mark on the action sports photography scene, with this years second place finish at Whistlers' Deep Summer Photo Showdown, and a coveted Bike magazine cover to his credit.
