Rock & Ice Parting Shot

I got a climbing photo published in Rock & Ice magazine! It is the Parting Shot in the April issue.

And here is the original shot. (I never showed it to you guys, but it's where the title bar of this blog comes from.

D. Scott Clark

I've worked all over her globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a diverse set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I'm hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I've created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot.

With my photography background firmly formed in the commercial advertising arena, I bring that attention to detail and technical process to adventure photography. And I've spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I'm not shooting for clients I'm out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my skis.


  1. congrats on getting that published. you shoot amazing stuff, always fun to follow your blog and see what you're up to shooting.

  2. Nice work Scott! Can't wait to work with you again sometime soon

  3. I saw that happen! I was like, think that I missed the deadline for that submission.

    I did however, flaunt to all the climbers around me that I knew you AND knew the climb in the shot.

  4. also, it's a totally fabulous image. I didn't get anything so pretty as this while I was in Badami...

  5. Haha, I did the same thing with the cover of Rock & Ice, I think in December. The title was Monkey Nation and had a Sam Bié shot that was taken just around the corner. I was like, "I was there when he took this, shooting from a different angle!"
