LaSportiva Weekend – Adam Ondra visits the Peak District

I had a great time following Adam Ondra during his UK visit. It was a very ‘run and gun‘ style assignment… after all the purpose of Adam’s visit was to climb not to do a photoshoot!
There’s more to read about the weekend over at Lyon’s Outdoor website.
Look out for the next issue of Climb Magazine with more exclusive images.
Thank you to Lyon Outdoor and Outside Shop in the Peak District for the opportunity and an awesome weekend.

‘Sub-Zero’ – new EpicTV series

I spent most of December in Canada filming and producing for EpicTV and Polished Project a video series called Sub-Zero’. Chasing the best athletes and best ice conditions requires a lot of time and I had a blast following Raphael Slawinski, Will Gadd, Gordon McArthur and John Freeman and finding out why ice climbing has become so special for them… it’s been an eye opening experience as well!
3 out 4 episodes have been released already reaching over 300k 460k 500k 560k 600k 700k 900k views!
(last updated: 19th of March)

Check out our awesome trailer…

Off Piste Performance – Photo Shoot

I was expecting this assignment to be good fun… and it kind of was… I’ve grown to love assignments where I have to push myself or even better when I get a chance to learn a thing or two along the way.
Following last year’s ‘run and gun’ style shoot with Alison Culshaw and her students this year we’ve concentrated on getting more specific action images. The weather and snow conditions were not on our side with warm temperatures and rain… but overall this factor alone helped us to create some interesting and moody images of the most known off piste location in ChamonixGrand Montets.

Big thank you to Ski Breezy for their fantastic hospitality. Absolutely recommended!

Houlding and Randall left hanging… – new editorials

In the Summer/Autumn I shot two editorial assignments for two different mainstream magazines: Flipside with Tom Randall and Outdoor Fitness with Leo Houlding.

After shooting climbing professionally for the past 5 years I must remember that general public’s perception of climbing and climbers is very different to that we have inside our community. Take the shot of Leo for example… it’s an ‘old hat’ I know! Staged you say, he’s just showing off… agreed! It works though, it’s simple, striking and helps to tell the story… In fact my brief included a still grab from BBC’s ‘Wildest Dream’ programme with Leo soloing the ‘Flying Buttress’.
It’s what I like to call ‘experience based’… nothing which Leo or Tom wouldn’t have done normally, but as a creative person I’m giving it a twist… I’m directing it, to a certain point to get the best possible photographs. Because from my standpoint I’m being hired to get the shot on that particular day.
Working with Tom and Leo was good fun, they really are Rock Stars!
