Trail running in Lauterbrunnen, Swiss Alps

Morning trail run with a super motivated friend, Belle – in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

Summer is officially here! This means just one thing, staying outside and bouncing around the Alps climbing, running, biking and of course making images of it all for the brands we work with. After returning from Nepal, we made the decision to stay closer to home for the remainder of the year. The more we explore our backyard, the Berner Oberland, the more we wonder – why leave? This, combined with being very motivated to do big mountain runs and climb has allowed for some beautiful projects to develop. We’ll post these images to our social pages as we make them. Our 2014 Mountain Sport Photo Workshop has been confirmed. This is the third straight year we have worked with our friends at Switzerland’s Viewfinder Center for Photography and once again, this year’s workshop will be held in what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most stunning locations, Grindelwald. This is our home turf and we know it well – guests will get to spend three days beneath the Eiger’s (in)famous North Wall at Kleine Scheidegg learning all about mountain sport photography, digital workflow, the photo business and how to break into it all as a pro. Space is limited, sign up early for the September 19-21 workshop – full info at : Viewfinder Mountain Sport Workshop For now, we wanted to share what we’ve been up – recent clips of our work plus some new images we’re happy with.

Ski touring on glacier

The last ski tour of 2014 in the Bernese Oberland, oh and one giant crevasse!

Lots of running from home while training for Nepal and the summer, high above the Brienzersee and Interlaken on the Hardergrat Trails.

Camp scene of a cold morning

And with this coffee, a very cold morning is about to dramatically improve! Shot for Optimus Stoves, Nepal.

Crack climbing, Annot, France

We’ve been shooting a lot of work for Outdoor Research. One of their athletes, pro climber, ace mountain guide and great friend, Simon Duverney has been the subject of a lot of our work lately as we enjoy different climbing areas in Europe. Here, Simon redpoints a 7c crack in Annot, France.

Road biking Grosse Scheidegg pass, Switzerland

Road biking shoot on the Grosse Scheidegg, for Assos cycling clothing.

Climbers hiking on the Mer de Glace, Chamonix

As a climber, I love this image. We’re walking on Chamonix’s Mer de Glace glacier headed for the Envers Hut – there is just so much to see in this landscape, from the smooth glacial ice, to the bulging fold of seracs and stone. It’s really another world, but sadly, one that is rapidly disappearing.

Climbing in the Envers des Aiguilles, Chamonix

Simon on Guy Anne, an absolutely perfect 6a+ crack at Little Yosemite above the Envers Hut. Thanks for getting up at 4 a.m. guys!

Climber belaying partner

Another image I just personally like. I was waiting at the belay when it started to rain – may as well shoot what I see.
