The team at Climb Magazine (UK) have been producing a fantastic magazine of late and have kicked off the new year with their first ever Photo Annual, or “Photographic Issue” to be precise. Well, I’m hoping it’s going to be an annual thing anyway. Judging by the digital preview on their website (which you can see here) it’s looking good with lots of interesting articles. There is also an interview with yours truly.
I haven’t seen the actual magazine yet but it has a great cover. I think the black and white works well. The shot of Crystal Davis on El Matador (5.10d) at Devils Tower, was taken using my special camera apparatus thingy to get the angle — more on that coming soon, promise!
My interview was by Ian Parnell, no slouch with a camera himself. Thanks Ian, for the opportunity to share some of my thoughts. And thanks to my assistant Cathy McBey, for shooting my portrait for this (not really a self-portrait as credited – now that would have been tricky!).
I’m looking forward to checking out everything else in the mag as soon as it arrives. Come on Australia Post!
