Life Viewed From The Edge

Opposed to photographing mountains from down low, I shoot where few dare to go: atop the highest peaks on Earth at first light. Climbing for hours in the night often during month-long expeditions above 20,000 feet, I seek rare compositions in the most extreme environments on Earth. Without the aid of drone or aircraft, I carry all my climbing and camera gear to show the feats we can reach if we step outside our comfort zones.

Here's some behind the scenes footage showing what goes into these epic adventures!
