The cover of the inaugural issue of The Outdoor Journal features a shot from one of my favorite basecamps in the world – Topavon Basecamp below Shivling in the Garwhal Himalaya. This new mag is beautiful and I’m stoked to have a feature article in the issue, “Shark’s Fin Redux,” about our climb on the prow of the Shark’s Fin, or Meru Central.

Honored to be on the list and happy so many people watched. Speaking at Grosvner Auditorium in National Geographic’s HQ’s is always a bit intimidating.
See the article and videos.

Stoked to see a 12-page spread about Meru in Outside China’s September issue. And, well, it always feels a little strange to see myself on a cover. There is a reason why I am a photographer and like to be behind the lens….and not in front of it.

Stoked to see the new The North Face 2012 Fall Print Ad Campaign out in magazines. The North Face focused its fall campaign on launching the Meru Kit, a line of equipment and clothing we developed for our climb of the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru. All the images for the campaign were shot on the expedition. Cool to see what Factory Labs were able to do with them.

Apple launched and showcased the new MacBook Pro Retina Display with one of my favorite shots from the December 2010 Ennedi Desert shoot. I shot the image of James Pearson climbing the first ascent of the Arch of Bishekele in the Ennedi Desert. Great to know that the folks at Apple think climbing is cool enough to use for such a major campaign!

Honored and stoked. Nice to get a nod from the ASME.

Here is the opening spread to Alpinist Magazine‘s feature story about our first ascent of the Shark’s Fin. We’ve been working with Michael Kennedy and the staff at Alpinist on this story for several months. Cool to get an intimate perspective of the climb through Conrad Anker’s eyes. There are a few things about his history with the mountain I didn’t even know about. It’s always great to share a story with our peers through Alpinist Magazine. No fanfare, no bullshit. This was probably the hardest climb and shoot of my career to date. Hope you can get a copy and enjoy it.
