LaSportiva Spring / Summer Ad featuring Alex Honnold – Spring 2014

May 4th, 2014

Alex Honnold going for it while deep water soloing in Oman. This photo was taken during our National Geographic trip exploring the rock climbing potential of the Musandam Peninsula of Oman. Alex Honnold, Hazel Findlay, Mark Synnott, Renan Ozturk, Mikey Schaefer and I lived on a sail boat for a few weeks climbing sea cliffs and sailing around in the Gulf of Oman. Kind of a dream trip….

The North Face Summit Series Campaign – Summer 2014

April 10th, 2014

Fresh off the press. Here’s The North Face Summit Series ad for Summer 2014. Alex Honnold, Conrad Anker, Renan Ozturk and I dropped into the Bugaboos of British Columbia for a 3-week alpine rock climbing session. The plan was to fire some of the classics routes in this world famous alpine rock climbing mecca and shoot the new Summit Series campaign for The North Face. Alex, of course, on one of our “rest” days went off and nonchalantly pulled off the single most badass day of soloing ever done in the Bugaboos. It’s always a good time with this crew of friends.

Thank you Outside Magazine for the prime real estate. Master of Work Life Balance? More like “Holding on for Dear Life.” My wife is far more excited that our baby Marina made it into the magazine than she is about me making the cover…

National Geographic Magazine Feature: Impossible Rock – Climbing in Oman – March 2014

March 16th, 2014

It’s always an honor to be able to shoot for the Geographic. This story was the brainchild of my good friend Mark Synnott. As I’ve written about before, I’ve ended up in some wild places and some fairly crazy situations with Mark. This expedition was no different. Mark, Alex Honnold, Hazel Findlay, Mikey Schaefer, Renan Ozturk and I spent 3 weeks sailing around and exploring the Musandam Peninsula, located at the northern coast of Oman. We found an otherworldly landscape and some incredible climbing on the peninsula’s knife edge seaside cliffs. Read the feature story. See the photo gallery from the story.
