Well I’m happy to have scored the cover of the 2013 Ascent magazine. This is only the third year that Rock and Ice Magazine have produced their beautiful Ascent annual. And, incredibly, this is the third year that I have scored the cover. Yep, a hat-trick of Ascent covers. Very cool! You can see my […]
Well I’m now in Spain for a bit, climbing and shooting, and having a great time! Just seem to love it more and more over here. We have mostly been to Oliana again, one of the best hard crags in the world for sure. The scene and vibe here at the moment is insane and […]
Edit: Since publication of the guidebook author Neil Monteith has compiled this document detailing updates, corrections and several new routes. This blog might have been a bit quiet of late but behind the scenes things have as busy as ever. Now I’m delighted to announce that our first project for the year is complete and […]
I’m happy to score another cover of UK’s Climb Magazine, this time featuring a bit of Aussie rock. The climber is Flint Duxfield leading pitch 8 (the â€œSpine Chiller traverseâ€) of Big Nose (26), 250m, Pierceâ€™s Pass, Blue Mountains.
Sam Whiteley interviewed me for this profile which appears in the current issue of Better Photography, an Australian magazine which is edited by AIPP Grand Master of Photography, Peter Eastway. Many thanks to Sam and Peter for featuring my work, it’s a real honor.

We had a fantastic time climbing up in South East Queensland this winter but I’ve got to say information on the climbing was hard to come by. It soon became obvious to us that a lot of the crags up there were not covered by any print guidebooks; the coverage was usually very out of […]
I’m stoked to learn that in a round about way a some of my imagery has found its way into the Messner Mountain Museum in Italy. It has come about because in recent times I’ve collaborated with the brilliant artist Paolo Albertelli. And Paolo has used some of my images for a couple of his […]
Another Rock Magazine cover. This time it is from my trip to Queensland where I photographed John J O’Brien on his Ill Gotten Gains (26), an unlikely and very cool looking arete, two pitches up Mount Cooroora on the Sunshine Coast.
After a few months sweating it out in the office it’s good to be on the road again, this time to The Grapiles (The Grampians and Arapiles – you heard it here first?) for a few weeks – which is flying by all to quickly. We’ve been climbing of course but there is no such […]
