Early Ice - Lincoln Falls

I got out on Sunday with two friends to swing my axes into some ice for the first time this season! It was a perfect day. I was a bit nervous because the forecast in Boulder was 74ยบ and sunny, but up at 12,000 or so feet, Lincoln Falls was in great shape (despite what one commenter on MountainProject said, "There's No Ice").

From a distance Sickle on a Stick  (WI5) looked pretty thin, but the pillar was in good condition. Jeanette snapped this photo of me dropping off a large chunk of ice on the lead.

It was great getting into winter mode just as winter struck. Now it's snowing and cold in Boulder! Psyched for winter this year!

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.
