2014 was our 15th year working as full time photographers. After all these years, we’ve developed some great relationships with many of the people with whom we work. In fact, the outdoor industry has given us a lot more than just work. We shoot editorial assignments for all kinds of magazines, produce commercial work for many of the outdoor industry’s biggest brands, and manage all our own stock. The people we photograph, travel with, and exchange emails – many of them are also friends. It’s a great way to work, and an inspiring way to live.
Right now there is a lot of our work in some high profile places throughout the outdoor industry, work that was made mostly in the last year. These, of course, are hugely rewarding for us. And for those of you that follow along on our social media, you have probably seen many of these same images while we were making them. It’s fun to see where the work ends up.
Literally from our house in Interlaken, Switzerland, above, is the Swiss Transa 4 Seasons Magazine cover from a ski tour in the Berner Oberland with some good friends last spring.
Quite possibly the most rewarding Clip of our careers – The Ski Magazine story we shot in North Korea has been a massive success. Along with writer Tim Neville, we sought out the influence of tourism in North Korea. The full story is available at The Great Pleasure Project.
The January 2015 Backpacker Magazine cover is another image made from our house (Interlaken is a good place to live!). Along with friends Hilary Oliver and Brendan Leonard, we set out to do what we feel is the best trail we’ve done, the Hardergrat Trail. We wrote about it here, while Brendan will have a full story available soon.
Our North Korea story is also available in German, in Planet Snow Magazine.
