  • No trip to France is complete without an overnight at the Lac Blanc.. We arrived completely soaked the night before to be treated to hot tea & pie from the hut cooks — French mountain hospitality.

  • Earlier this summer, walking over the fog, heading a small stone hut for the night.. Reconnecting with the simpler things often looks like this.

  • The hills where I grew up. Working on a series with @canonusa's to document my home country with the EOS R. This landscape is not the most epic or dramatic, it isnt really famous either but what makes it special is the memories attached to it. Roaming this country as a teenager looking for a purpose I would walk up to the highest hill I'd find and wait for nightfall to walk down. I loved the thrill of walking down in the dark without a headlamp. I just felt alive.. Hopefully this encourages you to not only seek adventure thousands of miles away from home like I did. It's only with the perspective that I realize how lucky I was to grow up here. Shot on the EOS R + Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II

  • The North West face of the Mont-Blanc Massif. While shooting new work for @canonusa's EOS R this September, I posted up in the mist waiting for an opening on the range. This is as good as it got. At first I was bummed that I didnt get to see the mountain tops but this image has grown on me, the compression of the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens flattens the landscape and it becomes textures. Happy I lugged the zoom all the way up here!

  • Cold — I’ve been thinking about the themes recurrent in my photographs and I think cold is often an ingredient. Along with wind and generally crap weather. 
I often give credit to Canon and Arctery’x for helping me get my work done under these conditions but I’ve never given it to other bits of under-looked but essential gear like memory cards & hard drives. So this is it: I’m joining @lexarmemory Ambassador Team to shed some light on these small pieces of plastic and circuits that have kept me out shooting for the last 5 years. Pumped! #ShotOnLexar #LexarAmbassador

  • Easily my favorite evening of the whole Slovenia trip. This is Bivak 2, a reinterpretation of a 1936 shelter that was brought up here by heli after the original one was in too bad of a shape.  The new shelter had to withstand winds of up to 200 km/h, weigh less than 1.3 tons, have the same foot print as the original, and built in a new way that requires no maintenance. Always nice to spend the night in one of these, it’s like a reset for the mind..

  • Late summer alpenglow during another headlamp descent back to the pass. The air gets warmer with every step, our knees are wondering why do we keep doing that to them, and the mind is tranquille. Not many thoughts after sunset, just one step in front of the other that’s the clarity of mind that waking brings..

  • Home for the night in the Seven Lakes Valley.. We gulped down our macaroni dinner at the refuge, ran to a lake for sunset and ran back to the refuge just in time for blue hour. I’m going to be missing the hectic pacing of summer, were the sun sets late so you can experience a lot in one day. @feelslovenia

  • This trip to Slovenia has been the best one yet.. We walked many km on the Juliana Trail, climbed, Swam, ate delicious food and filmed footage we could only dream of. Are foot are a bit tender from all the walking, we’re tired but feeling very fulfilled— love this high after a trip ✌🏻 @feelslovenia @markpetek @tucker.macdonald @c__nic @iztok_medja

  • Over a sea of clouds. New work shot for @canonusa in the Slovenian mountains with the EOS R and the 16-35mm f2.8L II USM — my go-to kit for when weight matters. I used to bring the 24mm 1.4 on these but found that I can push the ISO high enough that 2.8 suffices. 
It’s not a common thing to experience sunsets from high places and it comes with a few trade offs, the big one is having to get down in the dark. But the light we get to see and the fact that no-one is left on the mountain makes us quickly forget about the descent.. still pinching myself over this sunset

  • The North Wall of Mount Triglav. I had heard about a small alpine shelter called Bivak 2 that was directly facing the tallest mountain in Slovenia..Finally on my 4th trip here I was able to watch the sun go down over this beast of a mountain.. @feelslovenia
